SBN Reacts: New year, newfound optimism

And this was before the Gophers stomped Ohio State.

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Minnesota Golden Gophers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

You’ll be shocked to know that winning makes fans happier. Despite the dud of a game against Wisconsin, Gophers fans entered 2021 feeling confident (around 90% or so) about the basketball team.

It’s also important to note that this continued rise in confidence was from before the beatdown of Ohio State. One would think the Gophers would only improve upon their numbers given that performance.

As for football, folks got over their small Wisconsin hangover to improve to nearly 80% confidence. Here’s hoping 2021 gives us more stability and enjoyment than **gestures at the dumpster fire** did.
