College game day thread wk 11

Recommended Posts

I should have started these at the beginning of the year but didnt think about it till i started the Wisconsin thread, which turned into a game day thread. 

 

It's a little early in the week but was looking at the schedule and was excited about some big games.

 

 1 LSU - 2 Alabama

 

5 Penn St - 13 Minnesota

 

18 Iowa - 16 Wisconsin

only if Michigan has another gut punch loss

 

and Penn State

 

----------------------------------------

 

in Columbus after another LLLLLoyd loss, this one wasn't unexpected.

 

Friend in maize M cap is putting gas in for the long ride home, two Buckeyes fans come up and start razzing about the game, to which he replies "enjoy the Alamo Bowl", as Michigan was off to the Rose Bowl

 

they slunked away

 

 

----------------

 

this Minnesota game is huge for implications all around the Big Ten.....

i saw a quick feature on the Gopher's QB, but not holding my breath

 

usually a joke opponent except for that time when they had Maroney and Barber in town at the same time, stole one at Ann Arbor (again not unexpected)

 

 

too bad Wisky isn't at Iowa, that would have made it another game of huge implication...  :(

oh crap, more great football players going to Minnesota because of dear old dad???

 

 

Wisky at Iowa would be going down to a last second Badger 45 yard FG attempt for the win

Don’t know but old Uncle Kirbs has already parlayed PSU -6 to LSU money line for a 4 or 5 to 1 payout.

Uncle Kirbs, Minnesota is very good at home.  Factor in this is the biggest home game Minnesota has had in decades, maybe ever & I expect this game to play out kind of like the Iowa/PSU game did.  Low scoring, I think Penn St will win but I think it will be a one possession game.  

 

That LSU game I don't know, it seems like everybody is on LSU.  They are coming into Saban's house, a bit disrespectful to Alabama if you ask me, especially the way Saban has handed Oregeon his lunch the last few years.

It is a big home game but the city of Minneapolis doesn’t really support them. There are still tickets available. 

 

I expect bama to win but if they don’t they will use tua injury as the reason. He’s going to play hurt

The Gophers were lethal with Maroney and Barber in the backfield

 

their fluke of not playing any hard games until this week does not override historical reality for the program

 

3 o' their last 4 games are tough,

 

I'm cheering for them!!!

 

 

gonna learn the fight song...

best sporting even involving Minnesota so far in history....

 

 

i recall Dave Winfield was on the bench for UM, and Halberstam wrote that he was brawling mightily here , but since we now have youtube and film is readily available, nobody has been able to substantiate Dave out there at all....  nice fable though...

Penn State does not have an explosive offense.

 

Wouldn't be surprised if this is a low scoring game.

This is a different Louisiana State team, they have a quarterback now. Even when the Fighting Tigers were running the stone age offense, Alabama still had a tough time beating them.

That is surprising. This is the biggest game for the Golden Gophers in years. P.J. Fleck is doing his best to make them relevant since.....since.....since.....I don't know.

The issue with LSU is their defense. It’s not great.   I think this will be a shoot out. We’ve come a long way from the 9-6 Bama/LSU games

That's possible. High scoring or low scoring, I just want to see some good football, and I think we will get it.
