  1. You guys were favorites over Northwestern as well! Go do whatever you did in that game. (I didn't watch that one). Good luck. Iowa 20 Nebraska 35
  2. This is all you need to do. If you win the toss, kickoff and let Iowa fizzle. You'll get the ball back after they make a really nice punt. Then work the ball down the field with decent passes. Key is, don't throw any balls to the Hawkeyes. That is there only way of scoring. Use some running plays and get a 7-0 lead. Then kickoff and stop them again. Make them run 10 plays and keep everything in front of you. Then stop them again. They'll have another perfect punt inside your 20, but then just be patient and run the ball a bit and complete a third down pass to get the ball moving. Don't let Bryce Benhart get his butt kicked like he usually does so AM doesn't get too much pressure. Use that #11 guy you have. That TE who is 7 feet tall who catches everything thrown his way. Run him down the seam a couple times and Iowa won't be able to stop it. Score another TD to go up 14-0. (I know, it's not considered a close game if you take a 14-0 lead, but it's okay. What Minnesota likes to do is allow the other team an early score just so it doesn't seem like it's really odd that one team is scoring all of the points). When you get up 14-0, just forget about all of the close game stuff, and just kick the ball to Iowa. Again, just don't let them make a 40+ yd TD and you'll be fine. If they get 4-5 first downs, that's okay because they'll use up some clock. Eventually their QB will mess up and throw YOUR TEAM the ball. At this point, just pretend you are playing Northwestern. Chant "We don't do slogans" or whatever your slogan is to help cheer your team to a non-one-score victory. Good luck!
  3. Nebraska matches up very well against Iowa. MN was able to run on them. WI controlled Iowa. Nebraska needs to just go out and get a lead. Iowa can run the ball okay, but not as good as WI. Their offense isn't great. This is a game where even if Nebraska makes a mistake or two, Iowa won't be able to pull away by a lot. Just don't allow the big plays like MN allowed, and catch the two INT's when Iowa throws them to you instead of dropping them like MN did. I've watched a lot of Nebraska games. The defense is sound. Better than the last few years. Offense can still put up points, but usually too late. Just get a fast start and put the game away.
  4. There are people to sweat losing a redshirt on, but a QB should never be one. If your QB is half as good as you would hope, they would leave early for the NFL anyway. If they aren't as good as you hope, you don't really want them around for 5 years. If you have them around for 5 years, and they are somewhere in between, you should have out-recruited them during the next 2-3 years with a new QB, or you are stuck in a level of mediocrity where you know change is needed regardless.
  5. I think Frost stays aggressive and even with a thrown pick-six you could still win 20-35.
  6. We dominated time of possession. Dominated running game. Etc. But PJ decided to not go for TD's or not pass very much. We played scared. Frost doesn't play scared. You can do what Purdue did to Iowa. Iowa is a better matchup for Nebraska than Wisconsin. Iowa's defense is good, but not as good as WI, and not good enough against your offense. Your defense is plenty good enough to slow down their offense. Iowa 20 Nebraska 35.
  7. You guys can do it. Rather than play from behind and trying to keep games close, just go take a 14 point lead and expand it to 21 by half. Then hold on for a one score win in the 2nd half. Best wishes. Love you all! Golden Gopher Fans.
  8. Minnesota only has six four stars right now, and three are freshman who won't see the field. So Fleck is doing it all via 3-stars and culture. This is why I think Frost isn't a good coach. Our 3-stars consistently beat Frost's 4-stars. Then every year Nebraska says Minnesota is terrible.
  9. Continuing to use logic, however. WI, like many teams have teams that traditionally do well against them. One of those IS NOT Minnesota. So in any season where Minnesota does beat WI, the conference will look weak. Same thing for Iowa. MN hasn't gotten over the hump on Iowa, but Purdue beats them. With those type of bad-beats for specific teams, I can't envision a first year where Minnesota would win the west, where people would say "Oh, wow. Minnesota won the west and the West was SO GOOD this year." If you have Minnesota taking first, Purdue taking 2nd, and Wisconsin or Iowa third the thought is "Oh, Wisconsin had a bad year, that's why it was a down year". Very seldom is there a chance MN, IA, and WI all go 6-0 in their non-Big Ten West games so they all finish with zero or one loss. If you trade Ohio State to the West for any team. Purdue, Iowa, Illinois, Northwestern, etc. The talk would be "Oh wow. The West is tough. OSU, and WI, and IA, and Nebraska, etc." But if you look at the records, they're about the same. PSU has a high rating until they lose to Iowa, then Illinois, and they almost lost to WI. But PSU is always considered really good until they aren't.
  10. Sounds like something a team who loses by 5 a lot would say.
  11. West vs East: MN lost to Ohio St / beat MD, has Indiana : 1:1 WI lost to PSU and MI, has Rutgers. Currently 1:1 Purdue has MSU, OSU, and Indiana. Currently 0:0 Iowa beat Indiana, PSU, and MD. 3:0 Illinois beat PSU, lost to Rutgers and MD. 1:2 Northwestern lost to MSU and Michigan, beat Rutgers. 1:2 Nebraska lost to MSU and Michigan, has OSU. 0:2 Overall West vs East Crossover is at 7 wins and 8 losses: 7:8 West could still win the crossover battle. Then the thought probably is that the East is more top heavy and the West has more good teams that aren't horrible. But winning a division of 7 with teams that aren't horrible isn't the worst thing in the world.
  12. Weird argument. Miami never had the ball with a chance to take the lead in the 2nd half. Is that the definition for "barely handled"?
  13. Being 3-0 against Nebraska, since PJ fired Robb Smith was fired in 2018 makes most happy. Few will think Minnesota has turned it around until they win a west title. And then it will be a fluke. Then they'll either have to win a Big Ten Title game, or win the Big Ten west again. Fan sentiment often trails life.
