After routing Colorado, the Gophers return home to Minneapolis to chomp on another tasty MAC cupcake. This week, it’s the Bowling Green. Let’s put it this way, no one on the staff is afraid of this one.
This week’s thoughts
Blake: See my opponent preview.
GoAUpher: I was going to suggest that maybe Minnesota plays down again, but then I read Blake’s preview.
gopherguy05: The Gophers will try and play down to Bowling Green, but the Falcons are just not good. I expect a big day on offense.
GopherNation: Minnesota makes 3 field goals.
HipsterGopher: Remember in 2008 when Minnesota beat Bowling Green 42-17? Yeah me either. Thankfully the Gophers got the win in Bowling Green Ohio (love an away game against a MAC opponent), after losing to the Falcons the year before (thank you Tim Brewster).
mowe0018: Always got to underachieve when playing the MAC. PJ has too much fondness for his former conference. Gophers relatively roll.
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.
This week? Bet that Tanner Morgan throws at least 3 passes.
White Speed Receiver: It’s going to be boring, and it’s going to be ugly.
wildcat00: Gophers might come back to earth in the first quarter, but I don’t think Bowling Green can keep up for 4 quarters.
zipsofakron: I think the Gophers will run for something like 280 yards. It’s going to be fun to crack a couple beers and watch.
Psychologically speaking, they got over their “MAC surprise” with Miami, ironed out some kinks against Colorado and are now ready for the final tune up. They will roll early and often.
