We’re back with the 4th annual edition to test your predictions

We are back for the fourth season of testing you our readers to see if you can predict what will happen to the Minnesota Gophers and their players in the 2021 season. 2020 was a season of....well just crap, and hopefully we are over that hump and back and ready for a full season of fun in 2021. Below you will see polls on several topics regarding the Gopher team. Put your predictions down and we will come back in January and see just how well you predicted the events of the 2021 season!

**EDIT 9/6/2021

Obviously things changed significantly with Mo Ibraheim going down with his season ending leg injury during the Ohio State game. We have updated some of the polls and encourage you to revote if it changes any of your answers.
