The Predictions:

This Week’s Thoughts:

Blake: See my opponent preview.

GoAUpher: Because why not?

gopherguy05: Another game where the defenses are the best units for each team. Minnesota definitely needs to figure some things out but I have faith in them figuring enough out to get it done. This one will not be pretty in any way, but just get the W and move on.

GopherNation: Sometimes college football surprises you. I think the Gopher offense gets going in a big way to right things against an improved Rutgers team.

HipsterGopher: These programs have no shared history. Did you know the state of Minnesota is 973% bigger than the state of New Jersey? The more you know!

mowe0018: Things aren’t as bad as they seem. Though I’m sure we’ll find something to complain about despite winning a game.

Ustreet: It’s gonna be a terrible game.

WhiteSpeedReceiver: Pitcher’s duel, but Minnesota gets a timely home run to pull it out in the end.

wildcat00 could not be reached for comment.

zipsofakron: I think this is more optimism than anything, but I’m hoping this is the beginning of turning it around. Getting pantsed on national television has got to shake something up, right?
