    Defensive ranking four points better week over week.

    Interesting to see that SP+ís assessment of the offense actually **downgraded** the Gophers slightly week over week. Speaks to how poor the Illinois defense is.

    Clemson seems a bit overrated by voters this year. Same with Georgia. Ohio State should probably be in the top 2 of the voter polls at this point.

    ZOU ranked 10th here but not in either top 25 poll. How do they not even get vote in the Coaches poll? Has to be an omission.

    Throw game struggles certainly didn't help.
    If Morgan isn't ready for the elements then next week could be ugly.

    14th ranked offense. That's approaching elite status.

    Most of it was perfect throws just drop passes

    Johnson had a couple of bad drops, but the ball was coming out high with safety help over the top, which is a really bad combination.
    Even his completed passes were bad throws (e.g., Johnson popping a ball up to himself in the end-zone).
    The ball was slipping out of his hand all game long. Nebraska will make us pay for those if he doesn't get it cleaned up.

    The elements are only going to be worse this week.

    Trevor Lawrence threw a lot of iffy balls in the championship game last year and his receivers made him look good. I don’t know how one looks at TM thru this season and last and can say he’s inaccurate. Like TJ he had a worse game than usual because of the weather.

    And still, if you look at his numbers for the Illinois game, they look favorable compared to what Gopher fans have seen over the years at that position, despite 5-6 dropped passes.

    Tyler made a great catch on the TD, but the ones he dropped are balls he has to catch to be considered a top NFL prospect. Heís had his moments this season, but Iím mostly underwhelmed by his overall body of work (mostly because of the drops).

    Fair, the point I was trying to make is that he was impacted in a big way by the bad weather, and the weather is going to be worse next week, so hopefully he can figure out how to make that better.
