Minnesota vs. SJSU: Predictions, Hopes, And Goals For Week 4

New, 5 comments

What I think we'll see Saturday and what I hope we'll see Saturday.

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

As a fan, I'd love for this game to wash away all of the "MEH" and "ARGH" and "OH COME ON ARE YOU SERIOUS" from last weekend. But given the amount of injuries and how far the passing offense has to go, I'm certainly not going to set my expectations for full palate cleanse. Instead, I'd like to see the elimination of some of the TCU ugly (inconsistent offensive line play, turnovers) and slight passing improvements.

Predictions

Gophers rush for 300 yards. Oh yea, I'm going all in FULL HOMER on the running game this week. BELIEVE.

Theiren Cockran gets his first sack. He's so due at this point. Maybe this is just a hope that I want so bad that I'm predicting it, but seriously, DO IT TC.

[GOPHER QB] completes 57% of his passes. Also predicting that many of them won't look pretty.

Hopes

Ryan Santoso gets his first FG and all of his kicks are touchbacks. I'd like to see him start hitting some field goals in the game because you know with the current passing game the Gophers are going to need him come B1G play. Also, I heart the leg cannon. MOAR LEG CANNON!

Donovahn Jones gets to touch the ball. Limey, seriously man...

NO ONE GETS HURT. WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM US JOBU?

No Minnesota turnovers. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

We see something in the offensive playcalling that suggests the coaches are willing to go after the edge. In other words, fewer runs up the middle please. Or at least fake the jet sweep once or twice when you do it. Begging you Limey.

The Big Ten burns again. The gnomes asked for this one. They want to snark it up.

SKI-U-MAH!
