    Gophers vs Cyclones

    I haven't been on this site in sometime. Last time I was on here was when you guys were about to dismantle those annoying rejects from north dakota. I just wanted to get a discussion going on what you guys thought would happen during this bowl game?

    My thoughts:
    i am a gopher fan, so im picking minny to win by 10. i think our defense is better then your offense, but im not sure if our offense is better then your defense. i have a feeling this is either going to be a wierd shoot out type game or some type of 20-10 special teams grind it out boring *** game.

    last, thanks for kicking the hell out of ndsu...that school may be the most annoying fan base in the country and they seem to think they need the respect of a florida or usc...i dont get it

    Re: Gophers vs Cyclones

    That guy spent all summer filling this place with his trash. I believe he had some help with no longer posting here.

    As far as your prediction, you may be right that your D is better than our O. The Cyclone offense has not been healthy since week 6, although it looked like they were coming back to form against Missouri. Of course we have had our starting QB, RB, and C miss quite a bit of time. If all those guys are healthy, we have a pretty strong running game. Our passing attack remains something of a quagmire.

    On defense, we started to slip quite a bit near the end of the season. Every team has moved the ball on us, but we have had a few timely turnovers in the red zone and have done a much better job at keeping teams out of the endzone compared to one year ago. Jesse Smith is an all-Big 12 MLB that eats babies with a smile on his face.

    I think it will be in the neighborhood of 20-17 or so. Pick a winner.

    My reference was to the mighty gopher (13-lined ground squirrel*) being a plains animal, my sincere & humble apologies if that offended you. Also, Minnesota ranked 4th nationally in corn production according to the USDA.

    Being from Omaha, I have enough experience to tell you that it's a two way street. City folk and country folk are just different, and for some reason they get mad at each other about it.

    First question how are Gophers scoring 20 points? I don't see Arnuad throwing 3 pick 6's and then us blocking an extra point. I watched Minnesota play SDSU and Iowa and that offense (since the loss of Decker) is one of the worst in the country. Too many distractions, the Gophers have been there 3 out of 4 years and really don't want to be there and sounds like Brewster doesn't want to be at Minnesota anymore. ISU is on the upswing, they want to be there more and have all their offensive fire power back at 100% first time since week 4, ISU 31-3.

    Re: Gophers vs Cyclones

    Go medium sized townfolk!!! Woo!!

    Actually, I am probably over-sensitive about it. My hometown is probably about 12,000 people and I could count on one hand the number of people I knew in school who actually came from farming families. Yet we competed in a conference against several metro suburbs and we always caught flak for being the hicks of the conference.

    Is it us, or you? Someone made a comment about the plains, and you went off about how Minneapolis is actually a city, and they shouldn't be talking (even though that wasn't the point of his post).
