New, 28 comments

Wildcats, schmildcats.

Hey! The Gophers are on a winning streak! Will Northwestern take that away from them? If you believe the smart and funny folks here on the TDG staff, not a chance. Except for zipsofakron. Please light candles for his psyche during this difficult time. time for a winning streak.

The predictions

This week’s thoughts

Blake: See my opponent preview.

GoAUpher: I’m stealing gg05’s bit. THE POWER OF THIRTY SHALL NOT BE DENIED. Also Northwestern isn’t the best and I think Minnesota is able to grind out the TD’s they need to open a wider lead in the second half.

gopherguy05: We score more, they score less.

GopherNation: Northwestern will win the Big Ten West...next year. This year the Gophers will have no problem taking care of business and winning this while running all over the Wildcats.

HipsterGopher: On october 30th, 1893 our Gophers traveled to Evanston and beat the Wildcats 16-0. all these years later (128) and that score feels about right to me. NOTE: Hipster’s bit is that he picks using scores from previous matchups between the teams.

mowe0018: I am tenuous about any away game at this point in time regardless of quality of opponent. I think the Gophers will continue to play quality defense. Just avoid turnovers and injuries, and run the danged ball and we should be ok. Then again, Ryan Field is a bit of a House of Horrors and it is Halloween weekend... maybe I should change my pick...

UStreet: In lieu of predicting scores, I’m offering the fan base a sure fire way to prove I have no idea what I’m talking about. We invested $100 in Goldy bucks and each week I’m betting $7.69 a week on a prediction. Comment whether you agree with or want to fade my bet and we will keep track of who is smarter: the commentariat or me. It’ll be you.

Minnesota rushes for over 3 touchdowns.

White Speed Receiver: Northwestern is really bad stopping the run. Minnesota is really good at running. Roll damn Gophs.

wildcat00: Run, Gophers, run!

zipsofakron: There is this scene in The Mighty Ducks where Charlie Conway gets on a breakaway and Gordon is all excited because he thinks District 5 will finally score a goal.

Karp chimes in and goes, “it’s Spazway, he’ll screw up.”

Right now we’re all Gordon Bombay.

... I know I need help.
