Here we are, we've won 7 games in a row, sitting at 5-0 and a night home game against one of the top programs from the 80s and 90s and a fellow division foe. The crowd will be rocking, the Bank will be packed and the Gophers have a massive chance to separate themselves from the pretenders.

Get loud Gopher fans.

AND GET 'ER DONE FLECK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watching Big Ten Tailgate, glad to see they spend 20 minutes talking about Nerdbraska, and follow it up with about 30 seconds on the Gophers. I exaggerated, but very little. We can see the favoritism for the money schools.
Reason I bring this up is; Minnesota has not had a great recent history (good at times but not a great time in the last 40-50 years), but hopefully if Minnesota wins against N, they are not thought of as an afterthought.

Accounting for conditions and opponent, need all three phases of our game to be at least average today...with minimal unforced errors. Good O-line play...creating holes and protecting Tanner...should give us the points needed for the W. D needs to handle Wan'Dale Robinson and QB scrambles (no matter who's back there for NU). No special teams breakdowns a must.

Go Gophers!

I love Dave Revsine and his weekly dramatic intro to BG10 Tailgate, but he referred to this game as a "border battle" in that intro. Close, but not quite.

So does the bad weather favor one team over the other? I’m referring more to style of play, schemes and key-position talent comparisons, as I don’t think our team is necessarily more “accustomed” to playing in bad weather.

Lee Corso is to College Game Day what Sid Hartman is to WCCO. Time to call it a career. He and Herbstreit are presidents of the Scott Frost fan club.

Feel like it favors the Gophers, regardless of playing style. If I’m a Nebraska kid I want nothing to do with a road night game in cold, wet conditions.

I feel like the wind is going to wreak havoc on passing and we’re going to have to rely on our O line to let our running game go crazy. I hope for few to no punts by the Gophers.

I'm a bit leery about a weather related let-down. This could easily turn either way.

"Weather-related let-down"?

Does the weather tonight work for — or against — either team? How?

I'm not sure what you're saying.

Anyone know if the Broken Chair tailgate is open to well behaved Gopher fans that have donated?

Slippery balls that lead to interceptions, fumbles, etc...

Question.


I'm bringing someone older to the game who is a bit slower/ weak walking.

Are the golf carts I see driving people around available to anyone?


Would be handy for this game.
