Is anyone else as upset about the loss last Saturday? Why couldn't the punter dance around or run through the end zone?

Frustrating.

The Gophers last few seasons have been just like this. Stringing us along to make us believe that this is the year. Find a way to win! Upper echelon (sp) teams win those games. Don't be afraid to succeed! Grrrrrrrrrr!

Except he'd say Marooney instead of Maroney.

Glen Mason has proven again that his team can win a couple games a year but he really can't coach his way out of a wet paper bag.
How can they not get one first down to finish the game?


Go Johnnies!

Will the Gophers win another football game this year? Yikes. USC might win by 50 points on Saturday

OK - maybe, MAYBE we might beat Northern Illinois. Probably not.

I'm thinking Turek or Murph should take over.

Nothing good can come with scheduling teams like South Dakota. If you beat them, you're supposed to and by a decent margin. If you lose to them, you're the laughing stock of the Big Ten. I had a good chuckle.

Skeddy writes "the Gophers last few seasons have been just like this."

How about the last 50 seasons? I am still on record as saying that things like this are the only reason I have any interest in Gopher football at all. Sure if they'd go to the Rose Bowl I'd watch and want them to win, and you can call me bandwagon for that, but if sports are supposed to be entertainment for us as we grind through life's day to day attrition, then this is what is entertaining/intruiging about the gophers football program. Recently saw the odds for winning the Big 10, and it started at 5-1 and grew gradually to 100-1, which were the odds of the eighth and ninth teams. The bottom two teams, the Gophers and Indiana, had 1000-1 odds of winning the bit 10. I thought that a pretty tremendous jump, 100-1 all the way to 1000-1.

The worst part is that it wasn't something fluky, but SoDak moved the ball with little difficulty. The Gophers were 30 point favorites. Ish.

Notice I wrote that five years ago though too. Jeesh been a while since we've discussed Gopher football on here. Funny that the topic really hasn't changed either. Read something funny in today's Strib. Read below. We were favored by 30???? Can't see how or why?

Brewster quote regarding this week's upcoming game>>>>
"I love the fact that USC's coming in this week. Coming off a tough loss, our kids are going to be excited to play," Brewster said. "We're not going to have to challenge our guys to get excited."

If they have to challenge their players to get excited to play Division I college football week in and week out there's a major problem here. Do you think he says in the locker room before a game, "Okay come on kids if we win today I'm taking you all to McDonald's after the game." Whoopie!!

Five years between Gopher discussions, that about says it all. Sorry Skeddy, that's funny man.

Ski-U-Mah.

At least they got a new stadium. They have a much greater value to the sports pulse of this area, both financially and emotionally, than the Minnesota Vikings.
