Opening thoughts

You know what? Life is pain. That’s what the season is reminding us.

(What an optimistic start to this post.)

Gnome #TAKES

To feel good about the game, Jeff Brohm’s face must be made to look like this.

The gnomes don’t care if that’s because Rashod Bateman scores a bunch or if it’s because Mo runs for like 400 yards. This Gophers defense cannot be relied upon so that means the offense must give us angry Brohm face.

Keys to the game

  • Remember that we are supposed to have a good offense. For the love of god please use a game plan that plays to ALL of the team’s strengths, not just the one you decided to focus on this week.
  • Turn of the TV if you don’t want to watch anymore. This one is for the fans. It’s been a crappy year, don’t make it worse if you don’t want to. No one is making you watch.

How afraid am I?

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

Goodness, I guess I’m 4 Brewsters being barreled down upon by a herd of trains afraid? I mean, what is fear at this point anyway?

Prediction

Minnesota 31- Purdue 27

Hahahahahahahahahaha I’m just picking numbers with no logic at this point. #chaosseason
