Look to the stars and see the signs.

Opening thoughts


Nope, nothing you can say about the depleted depth chart will make me question the joy of a night game.

Keys to the game

  • Score points. No seriously, MSU’s defense might not let us do this and we really kinda need to.
  • Win the turnover battle...and actually score points when we do. I’m not kidding that we need to score points, especially if we force turnovers.
  • Pressure the quarterback. I STILL WANT SACKS.

How afraid am I?

On a scale of 1 to 5 "Brewsters on his face" (1 being not a afraid, 5 being very afraid)?

In honor of the night game, I am 4 Brewsters on a star chart afraid of Michigan State. This could be a bleach game if we’re not careful.


We’re probably going to lose and I can’t predict otherwise just because it’s a night game and I’ll be there.

Michigan State, 27 - Minnesota, 10

What’s your prediction?
