Middle Tennessee is a horrible school filled with horrible people who do horrible things like beat Minnesota in the NCAA Tournament. They are also followed by fans who like to reference humidity as if this rare weather phenomenon is only experienced in crappy sections of Tennessee. These are bad fans and they should feel bad.
Santa Gopher Gnome was so busy going ORSONWELLESCLAPPING.GIF in response to my immature opening that he almost forgot that he had a job to do. Luckily, he soon remembered there are no GIFs related to Blue Raiders anywhere. Which is terrible. Which lead to this.
Yes, yes you are MTSU.

Murfreesboro is oddly spelled and is apparently the hottest most humid place on the planet. I would avoid going there at all costs if I were you.

Keys to the game
- Show us what you’re made of. It’s officially your show now Conor Rhoda. You can do it!
- PASS RUSH FTW. QB Brent Stockstill is unlikely to be 100% on Saturday. The more pressure the front seven can apply, the better off our thin secondary is going to be.
- FULL BANANA.
How afraid am I?
On a scale of 1 to 5 "Brewsters on his face" (1 being not a afraid, 5 being very afraid)?
I am only 1 Golden Brewster afraid of Middle Tennessee. The Fighting Humidity Indexes are no match for the power of FULL BANANA!
The uniforms will make me happy. The Gophers will make me happy. Middle Tennessee fans in the stands will spend their time taking humidity readings.
Minnesota, 30 - Middle Tennessee, 13
