Everything you need for Saturday.

NCAA Football: Fresno State at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Opening thoughts

I really liked coming into this season with optimism. Losing Saturday won’t dash it, but it would be a whole lot nicer if the Gophers win on Saturday. Losing? It’s doesn’t feel good to watch losing.

(If all this seems obvious, well, it’s been a long week and I mostly based this off the GIF which I stumbled onto randomly. Don’t judge me. Or do.)

Gnome #TAKES

Cute rabbits got a win last week. The Gnomes didn’t want to change it up, so they gave me a cute bulldog puppy mandate. I tried to point out the win last week was ugly, but they replied only with “SQUEEEEEEE” and I couldn’t argue. Hopefully the Fresno State Bulldogs are as cute and sleepy as these bulldogs.

Keys to the game

  • I Establish the run. FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY PLEASE HAVE SUCCESS RUNNING THE BALL.
  • Don’t do this anymore.

Please don’t. It’s not fun to watch.

  • Something something just win something something.

How afraid am I?

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

3 Brewsters enjoying a nice day at a beach with a very cute bulldog. Good bulldog.

Prediction

Minnesota 28 - Fresno State 17
