Admit it Big Dave you are feeling that heat just a little. Just make sure you and your team pay attention to LSU before you start to worry about playing the Gophers a bowl game!

Well, I'm not too concerned about the #13 team in the nation. There's very little chance the Goophers would make it into the top 4 even if they go undefeated but stranger things have happened. I would love for Bama to play the Goophers in the playoffs but I am not very hopeful of that happening.

 

Goophers will lose at least 2 or maybe 3 of the next 4 games. Then if they play Ohio State in a Big 10 Championship game they would lose that one too. 

 

It's already been a great year for the team and an appearance in the Big 10 Champ. Game would be huge for this program. Maybe Fleck is for real? If so, how long will he stick around?

 Fleck made a great point, Alabama and LSU literally get gameday EVERY year! Twice in most cases. Hopefully that’s something ESPN considers. 

 

That's because those are two perennially relevant teams that the rest of the country wants to watch. Most of America doesn't even know where Minnesota is on a map and would laugh if they heard the nickname Gophers.....

No one outside of Minnesota could name the Goophers coach or one player.

People not knowing where Minnesota is on the map is more reason for gameday to be here! The LSU/Alabama game is still going to be on prime time national tv. Gameday has nothing to do with that, considering they’ve been to places like South Dakota State, North Dakota State, James Madison, and Harvard. Not to mention countless lesser D1 campuses.

 

If Minnesota runs the table and wins the big ten (which I’m not predicting), they absolutely would make the 4 team playoff, most likely as the #3 seed. 
 

Penn State is far from being some unstoppable juggernaut. This is a very winnable game. If they do win this game, it’s the game against Iowa the next week that becomes almost unwinable! It would be extremely difficult to “get up” for that game, despite it being a rivalry game, after a huge win against a top ranked team.

 

Also, gophers are undefeated all time against Alabama 😁

This game can be seen on channel 5. Two undefeated 8-0 and Nationally ranked teams battle it out at TCF stadium at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

 

I predict a great game and the Gophers win this one becoming a huge part of the National football conversation.

GOPHER NATION!!!!

 

What an exciting game to watch! Blood pressure was getting tested there in the 4th quarter. I thought for sure the fix was in when the refs didn’t call delay of game on that Penn State touchdown run. Probably the biggest home win in a very very very long time!

They should jump up at least 5 spots in the playoff rankings. Alabama and Kansas State lost, but Alabama will stay ahead of them. 4 teams were idle (Utah, Oregon, Auburn, Michigan). Oklahoma almost blew it against Iowa State, and Wisconsin squeaked by Iowa. In the AP poll they should go up at least 3 spots.

 

Anyone else think that Annexstad transfers after this season? Tanner Morgan had more TD passes than incompletions! And he was only 1 foot away from a 4th touchdown!

They will jump more than 5 spots from 17th and into the top 10.

Man I was [PoorWordUsage]ed when that delay of game never got called and being that a touchdown came from it was even worse but in the end we found a way to make it happen. My blood pressure was also on the rise there at the end.  Awesome game!

#8 in the playoff rankings. As a long time gopher fan, this has truly been a dream season!

Its the highest they have ever been ranked in my life time(I'm 25).  I'm super pumped with this season.

Ain't this fun?

 

Seriously, it's been a joy flipping around on the sports channels and seeing the Goph's not only noticed but with a major hint of respect.

 

Moved to MN 40 years ago, it's about dam time boy's.

 

I think the IA game will be a tougher test than Penn State.

That game from a MN sports fans perspective has loss written all over it.

Prove me wrong Gophers, continue to row that boat.

Bring that effing bacon statue home!!!!!

Well that game went about as expected. Was worse for me, because my directv went out, so I had to listen to the game. Couple plays I wish they would have done differently...go for the touchdown at the end of the first half, instead of field goal. And when it was 4th down midway through the 4th quarter, they should have kicked the field goal instead of going for it. Was fun having a top ten ranking while it lasted. That loss guaranteed gameday won’t be here for Wisconsin game.

Just one of those games where we didn't get the bounces to go our way like earlier in the season.

So.........win the next two games, get absolutely crushed by Ohio State and then head to the Rose Bowl.

I can live with that. :)

Well, they only dropped down to #11 in the AP poll. That’s not too bad. They better show up to Northwestern next week ready to crack some skulls! Just a win isn’t going to be good enough. They need to dominate!

It’s still a great season. Hopefully Fleck can build a sustainable program. 

 

That has been one of the best things about this season, the national exposure for recruitment.

Well, not as lopsided as I would have liked, but a good win nonetheless. Penn State is about to lose, so we’ll move up at least 1 spot in the rankings, pending the outcome of other games. Was nice to see lots of gopher fans on the road.

Gameday will be here next week! As cool and exciting as that will be...I have absolutely no ambition to attend! The initial thought sounds fun, but I really don’t want to stand around in a crowd for 3+ hours, in the cold and snow, watching sports casters that I can’t even hear 🤨

 

Anyway, they should move up 2 spots in the rankings. Could’ve been 3 spots had the refs not given Oklahoma a gift 1st down to end the game against TCU. Apparently the committee must really want the sooners to get that 4th playoff spot.

    • Those sticky felt pads?
    • Maybe this?   https://myeasyparts.com/epd_english/chair-glides-furniture-glides/adjustable-leveling-glides/sofia-leveling-feet-glides/leveling-adjustable-feet-1-38-base-diameter-716-x-1-by-12-stem-sofia-style-a-63de.html    
    • Red neck fix- take a belt sander and sand a flat spot in the caters so they won’t turn and you are set
    • What you want exists. I used to work for a company that produced a standing chair and I saw parts like that. The trick will be sourcing them in the quantity you need. might want to check with Grainger or McMaster-carr.   How about splurging on your Mom and getting her a new table and chairs set? Might be easier.😀
    • The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working.  What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters.  But I've never seen anything like that.
    • Couldn't you pry them off with a channel locks and put a rubber chair-table leg cap on them?   
    • Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen.  The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg.  We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily.  Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.  
    • It was a flooded camper to start.  $400 basically I paid for a rolling shell.  Here is Iowa not much ice yet, Okoboji should cap tonight.  So hopefully in a couple weeks we will be fishing.  Im wiring it tonight and insulation late this week.  Hopefully we will be done before the 1st of the year or so.   
    • When I built my wheelhouse 5 years ago I wanted total wheel alignment capability. I designed my axles around bolt on wheel hubs with ability to compound shim achieving correct camber and toe. Saw way too many boat trailers with serious worn tires due to hubs welded to axels. (Tire in photo attached to 2x4 was used during build so I could cut the grass.)
    • Wow, you really stripped her down.  Nice work so far, but you better keep working. The ice is getting thicker by the day!  😄
