Gophers Look for First Win as Miami-Ohio Comes to TCF Bank Stadium - OPEN TRHEAD

Game Time: 2:30 CST
Radio: 100.3 FM and the Gopher Radio Network

I know it is hard to believe that the Gophers are actually favored in this game after losing at home to New Mexico State. Very little seems to be in Minnesota's favor this week. Head Coach Jerry Kill missed the first couple days of practice and game prep and Miami (Ohio) had two full weeks to prepare for the Gopher.

Three Questions

  1. Can we get some pressure on Dysert? - I'm not holding my breath.
  2. Can we somehow generate a ground game? - Probably with our QB, but not likely with our RBs
  3. Can we get a win for coach? - If I were betting I wouldn't put money on it, but weird things happen.
  4. BONUS QUESTION, Will Wally Szczerbiak be in attendence?
