    MSU Spartans Presented By Rocket Mortgage

    I am really curious to hear what others think about the move Michigan State just made in regards to the teams name. I would hate to see this become a trend but given that one of the biggest names in college basketball just did it, it won't shock me to see this spread like wildfire. Honestly...

    One time Transfer Waiver Could be Huge for New Coach

    In the transfer portal thread on the football board there is a post about the NCAA finally making a decision on the one-time blanket waiver for transfers at their meeting after the final 4. If approved (as most seem to think it will be) it could be huge for whoever ends up being the next coach...

    Which QB Would You Choose?

    Based on the lively Leidner discussion in the Knuth thread and the fact that we are in the off season, I thought it might be fun to start this thread. You are starting a team, running any offense you want and have to pick a QB. You have to pick from the 5 QBs that have been the main QBs at...

    Packers decision to kick field goal late - can anyone explain it?

    I know this isn't 100% Gopher related but it does involve the fate of some Gopher alum in the game and I was trying to fathom the melt down that would have happened here had Fleck done the same thing. For the life of me I can't understand why the Packers, down 8 late in the game, would go for a...

    List of Players Returning and Departing for 2021

    Maybe this is already started somewhere else but think it would be interesting to have a definitive list of players that have declared their intentions for the 2021 season. So here is my best whack at it for what its worth and if people add others in the thread I will keep updating the list...

    Will Mo set the Single Season Rushing TD record for Gopher Footbal?

    He only has 9 games to do it in but the number to beat is Gary Russell's 18 from 2005. Mo has 10 through 3 games. If he stays healthy he has a great shot at getting there, even in the shortened season. 10 TDs in 3 games.....that is just unreal, especially when you factor in that he has done...

    The Good the Bad and the Ugly Week 1

    Have enjoyed these threads in the past but haven't seen one in a while so will take a whack at starting one. The Good: 1. Big Ten Football is back. Game didn't go the way we wanted it to but man it was fun to see Gopher Football again. 2. Mo - 26 carries, 140 yards, 2 TD to go with 4 catches...

    Auburn's DC just signed for 2.5 Million

    Apparently that makes him the highest paid coordinator out there. 2.5 million for a coordinator.....it is unreal what is happening with coaching salaries. There has to be a breaking point coming soon. According to the 2019 USA Today list of coaching salaries, his 2.5 million would put him at...

    Running Game in Great Hands Next Year with Mo!

    Getting lost in all the talk about TJ's amazing game is the game Mo played today. 20 carries - 140 yards - 1 TD Above and beyond that, he had many huge runs at key moments. He moved the pile on his own a number of times and showed some nice burst as well. He looked good in 2018 when he had...

    Wisconsin's 2020 Schedule

    All the talk about the Iowa game moving to Friday got me looking at some other Big Ten schedules and a few things about Wisconsin's 2020 schedule caught my eye. Their first game is at home against an improving Indiana team. First games can be dicey and without doing a deep dive into returning...

    Positive Recruiting Trend - Top 3 recruits in each class since 2010

    247 puts what they have as the teams highest ranked recruits all time (or at least since the rankings started) at the bottom of the page. Looking at that for Minnesota is pretty sad and it really does illustrate the crap shoot that recruiting is. But it got me curious to take a look back and...

    Calmest I have ever seen Gopherhole after a loss

    I know it has been a while since we lost but have been impressed by the lack of meltdown in here after yesterday's game. Frustration, disappointment sure, but not much in the sky is falling camp outside of a couple of posters. My take on where we are at and where we are headed. CFP - All the...

    Shocking - Ohio State gets another break from the NCAA

    First it was Fields using a bogus excuse to get immediate eligibility. Now it is Young getting suspended for a whopping 2 games against Maryland and Rutgers (teams Ohio State can beat with their backups probably). Anyone else shocked he will be back in action against Penn State? I know I am...

    Can't Shake This Feeling

    I know the history and I know all the reasons why this game should make me nervous....but for whatever reason it just doesn't. This is in no way to say we can't lose to Iowa because obviously we can. but there is a focus and determination level with this team that makes me think they will go...

    You've gotta be kidding me....more National disrespect towards Gophers

    First off - Sorry about the clickbait thread title! For those that will spend the next week scouring the internet for signs of local and national disrespect towards the Gophers rest assured that if you look for it you will find it. But who gives a crap what person A or person B says about the...

    What happened to Northwestern?

    If they lose to Purdue on Saturday there is a really strong possibility that they will go from 8-1 in the Big Ten last year to 0-9 in the conference this year (have us and @ Illinois left). Rutgers has been awful but I think there is a chance they would be favored against Northwestern right...

    2016 vs. 2019 - Same Big Ten Schedule, Different Game Order

    First things first - this is not about the coaches, simply looking at the schedule and the sequencing of games in comparing two seasons with a lot of similarities to this point. If you took the games from 2016 and put them in the same order as the games from 2019 we would have started 5-0...

    Most Impressive Offensive Stat From Big Ten Play

    Through 5 Big Ten games the offense is posting some video game like stats, basically running toe to toe with Ohio State in most offensive categories. But of all the stats there is one that sticks out to me that I don't really feel like is being talked about much and that is Sacks Allowed...

    Can We Finally Start Giving the Defense Some Credit?

    I know we have not beaten any great teams but the defense has been playing really well all season and has kicked it into a higher gear during conference play. Rossi has done an amazing job since he took over. Winfield is playing like an All-American and we are getting contributions from guys...
