This is it. This is the week the Minnesota Golden Gophers start playing like the team we they can be.* I’m relaxed and looking forward to the game versus Georgia Southern on Saturday. Here’s to good things!
Also, yay for games that don’t start at TEN THIRTY PM EASTERN TIME BECAUSE WHAT THE HECK IS THAT NO MORE I SAY NO MORE.
*don’t you dare suggest I’m being too optimistic
The Gnomes are on vacation this weekend. They do not fear a triple option run from a shotgun/pistol look and remember when the Gophers stomped all over a different option team from Georgia (Tech) last year. They did send this nifty postcard of them on the beach though, along with a message of “sit back, relax, and enjoy a tasty can of victory on Saturday.”

Keys to the game
- Do not do very stupid things that extend GA Southern drives for no reason. No for real. Just don’t. I don’t want to see it.
- That’s it. That’s the keys. What, do you really think we need to ask for more than this when Minnesota would have beaten Fresno by at least 14 had they not been dumb all night?
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 one comically out of scale Tim Brewster with the Georgia Southern marching band afraid of the Eagles.
