    Penn St - they lose a lot and we get them at home
    Nebraska
    Maryland - they are maybe higher than they should be since we have struggled mightily with them
    Purdue
    Fresno St

    Same as this except flip Nebraska and PSU and then move Rutgers to the bottom.

    You think playing at Rutgers is an easier game than South Dakota St or Georgia Southern at home?

    Road games are typically difficult, Northwestern and Iowa should probably be 1 and 2.

    Rutgers is bad, easily the worst team on our schedule

    4. Penn State - helmet school at home is a good chance to make some noise
    5. @Purdue - up and coming team on the road
    6. Nebraska - overrated IMO
    7. @Fresno State - down from last year, but on the West Coast. Hopefully the guys can stay hydrated.
    8. Maryland - hardest one to place for me, but I think we remedy the past few years and win big
    9. Illinois - revenge game
    10. @Rutgers - dumpster fire
    11. South Dakota State - South Dakota. What more do I need to say?
    12. Georgia Directional - this is mostly because of the GSU troll, otherwise Rutgers might be here with GSU in 11th.
    EEE-GADS Super Gopher! You put GSU last because of me? I must be doing a good job for you to sell GSU this short of a victory over the Gophers.

    12. A ten way tie for twelfth.

    I know this is in jest STP, but I fear that many a hard core Gopher may put a target on your back for the post above!

I'm sure there are differences among us in terms of our opinions on what we think are the tough, middling, and easy games on the Gopher schedule. With that in mind, for fun, lets see your rankings here from most difficult to easiest game. I'll start (of course) -

    1. Iowa
    2. Nebraska
    3. Penn State
    4. Wisconsin
    5. Maryland
    6. Northwestern
    7. Purdue
    8. Fresno State
    9. Illinois
    10. Georgia Southern
    11. South Dakota State
    12. Rutgers

    The good news is I wouldn't be shocked at a win over any team on this list. The bad news is there are only a couple to 4 teams on the list that I would be shocked to lose to.
    GSU should be #6 or #7 on your list.
    Georgia Southern Option Football - often out weighed but seldom out played!

    I've been pounding this drum for awhile so you all already know what I'm going to say but here's mine:

    Games I don't expect the Gophers to win:
    Wisconsin
    Iowa
    Penn State

    Tossups:
    Fresno
    Purdue
    Northwestern

    Games I expect the Gophers to win:
    Nebraska
    Maryland

    Games where if the Gophers lose, I'll be upset:
    Whatever Georgia team we're playing
    SDSU
    Illinois
    Rutgers

    I would mostly agree w/ your raking but would move Fresno up and Maryland down a bit. I am concern that Fresno is a trap game. I'm over the top optimistic otherwise with Iowa being our first loss of the season.
