Gophers vs Badgers

Recommended Posts

The defense seems to be playing good this season, now if the offense could play better. I t should be a great game the Badgers have played very good for a few years

Wow, what happened to the Gophers? In the first half they could do no wrong, now they can't do anything right. What a turnaround by the Badgers.

Pretty disappointing. Total freefall mode for the Gophers. Still, with the expectations that were in place for the squad, you gotta take what you have and be thankful after dropping three that you still have 2 games left.

ya think, there offence is horrible. THe only time the go in a power i, they move the ball. I think they really need to look at getting a new offencive setup./

Yeah, really disappointing loss by the Gophs after a great first half. Once again Minnesota couldn't run the ball. Weber had some nice runs in the first half, but there wasn't much from the running backs.

[PoorWordUsage] the second half.

Maybe Wi. just wore them down like they are built to do? That O line of the Badgers is a big outfit. Mn. is very undersized in most positions and slow in the others. wink

They do have a couple of undersized linemen on both sides of the ball, which has been the issue with the Gophers in years past. One good thing about this Gopher team is that they are very young and have very few starting seniors on either side of the ball to replace for next year. Next year's defense should be very good if they can find a pass rushing end or two. The linebackers are on the small side, but they play fast, tackle well and get to the outside. The offensive line is young with no starting seniors. Hopefully a couple of them can bulk up, but personally I think it will take another starter or two like Matt Carufel to really make them good. Brew and his Crew are trying to recruit a few very good linemen both here in Minnesota and also nationally, so it would be nice to see a few of them sign. As far as the offensive weapons, Brandon Green is a true freshman this year and shown his talent. The combination of a more experienced Brandon Green lined up opposite of Eric Decker could be very dangerous next year, that is if Weber realizes he can go to someone else besides his #1 receiver. My biggest gripe is that they have to improve the running game, and not just having the quarterback run. So again, hopefully they can improve the offensive line.

    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
