Not intending to rain on the parade, but sadly, who knows when the pandemic will really be over or what the next one might look like. Would be so nice to get life back to normal enough for this to happen.
Will be good competition to prepare for the conference season. Last couple of years it looks like the Gophers are in shock when they begin league play and improve as the season goes on. Even if they win 1 game or less they will be battle tested and better prepared.
