Keys to the game

  • Don’t watch if losing by a lot will make you unhappy. No seriously. Why would you make yourself unhappy? If the Gophers magically start pulling an upset someone else will tell you and you can turn it on. Otherwise just chill out and find other things to entertain yourself with.

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’m “one Brewster mowing the lawn at Ohio Stadium” afraid of Ohio State. Why is he mowing the lawn? Because that’s what you should be doing instead of watching this game. Why only 1 Brew? Because I feel resigned to the outcome, not afraid.

Also, the thought of Tim Brewster trying to mow fake grass makes me smile because it just feels on #brand for his terribleness.

Prediction

Ohio State 49 - Minnesota 14
