HALLOWEEN WEIRD IS BACK AT TCF BANK STADIUM!

Let's get right to the good and bad from this half.

GOOD: The return of Halloween weird

Brandon Lingen, come on down.

BAD: Jabrill Peppers getting to return kicks

NO NO NO NO NO. DO NOT LET HIM RETURN THINGS. IT IS A BAD IDEA.

GOOD: Long pass plays that go for TD's

WOO HOO!

That was the longest pass play of the year for Minnesota BTW.

BAD: Minnesota pass rush for much of the game

Jake Ruddock is a terrible QB. But that's when he's getting pressured. You leave him with time and he's ok, certainly good enough to pick apart a Minnesota secondary if they're being left to cover guys for long periods. But when you get pressure on him...

GOOD: The things that happen with pressure on Ruddock

OH HAI THERE ERIC MURRAY!

BAD: Refs who seem to defer to Michigan

That was a bad pass interference call to take away the Cody Poock interception.

GOOD: The new Anthracite uniforms

I wasn't sure what I would think of them, but I've decided that I like these uniforms. The only and only thing I think they need to do is to give all the gold numbers and lettering a maroon outline. The maroon/gray is the best part of the uniform and the gold/gray is a bit much.

GREAT: The Coach Kill tribute video

We love you Coach!

Time for the Gophers to finish this game off and get the upset!

GO GOPHERS!
