    But, if you take a look at top 5 FCS teams playing P5 teams, I would be interested to see the average results. I doubt they're all blowouts, and wouldn't be surprised to see some close games.


    It's a no win for the Gophers. Win, and you were supposed to, lose, and the sky just fell on your head.
    You talk about P5 like it’s all Clemson and Alabama. It is not. It is also Rutgers and Kansas. The are plenty of FBS teams that SDSU would be favored to beat, including a few P5.

    On the DI FCS side, there is also 125 teams, some with no scholarships. If you schedule and blow out an FCS team, the question is always, which one?

    We'll be looking at this regardless of how the team plays. After all, the end zone color doesn't match the seats, the team has too much white in their uniforms, the concession stand ran out of water, and there are lines outside the gates.

SDSU finished in the FCS top 4 last year and is probably even better this year. Meanwhile, 2007 Michigan was markedly better than 2019 Minnesota. It's not at all pessimistic or unreasonable to suggest the Gophers win a close game here (single digits) and still have a great season.
    Not to mention that this is the first game. Who knows how much of the offense will be implemented? How many Gophers will be playing their first college football game, or have serious first game jitters? Etc., etc. I personally expect a very vanilla game played by the Gophers. Hopefully, the team plays well and wins convincingly.

    This could be true unless the game is in the evening.

    Give it a rest. GSU appears to have a good squad. And your offense should be able to make some noise, considering how unique it is. But the Gophers got some experience with the triple option this past year. You might want to be a little more concerned about our offense.

    This is a great first test for Minnesota and one I expect they pass with flying colors. To sleep on SDSU would be a huge mistake. The Jacks are outgunned but have some talent and nothing to lose. The first couple games of a football season can always get weird until teams settle in.

    SDSU has talent and game will be closer than alot of people think.

    Gophers win this game. 28-17 sounds about right.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I'll be more than happy with a win and come out of the game healthy, and maybe some second-teamers get some minutes.

    Nothing else is important at this point. Just get a win and move on. No need to over-think this.

    I'm sure that GSU and the Gophers have improved squads for 2019 the question is how much improvement have both made over last year? GT's Flex option was the triple option, but it doesn't look like ours. If your looking to cover GTs stile of option the same way you may have to make big adjustments at half time. Yes I am concerned about your offense!

    I could see that close score for NDSU, but not SDSU. I hope for the Gophers sake that the score is not that close.

    Against a lower level opponent and the first week, I’m guessing they’re hoping to get away with a limited playbook on both sides.

    Agree. Why Give Fresno State or Purdue more to look at. Why not work on base offense and defense.

    Sadly no STPGopher. A Battle Royal would pit an = or better opponent than myself. I heard that the HEARD doesn't have it in him to go for 15min. in the octagon or pentagon with TALON! Heard would burro underground at the sight of an EAGLES shadow with TALONs drawn!

    You should not worry about what you show those 2 teams. Just execute better than they do.

    NDSU and SDSU are not as far apart as you might think. SDSU has actually won 2 of the last 3 regular season meetings against NDSU.
