    Exactly. I think Maroney is the real deal, but we'll see if all those other stats hold up against the big boys!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Re: Offical Golden Gophers Thread...

    This is the first true test for the Gophers this week, Purdue is a team that the Gophers have had problems with in the Mason era.

    The Gophers have looked good in their first 3 games but still have some questions to be answered.

    1. The new defense, can it hold up to better competition?

    2. Can Cupito throw like he did last week, and can he continue it the whole season?

    3. Can the kicker make extra points?

    4. Can our running game be as dominate against Big 10 schools?


    Hope that on Saturday we get good answers to these questions!










    Copied that from a different thread.. I think having this thread is a good idea.. Stops from making a new one each game or when something happens with the gophers

    They are in the "others getting votes" section. So they are on the very edge of getting ranked. If they beat Purdue, they will definately be in the top 25.

    Thing is, they have to play better teams in the pre Big 10 games. Colorado St. was an upgrade from years past, but that won't do it. If you want to be a respected power, you can't put all these crap teams on the schedule year after year. Yes, every team gets a gravy team or two, but not like the Gophers get every year.

    C'mon Mason, last year the talk was the Rose Bowl, yet you were unprepared when the Big Ten season hit, and you didn't even come close.

    Just my thoughts on the whole thing. Go Michigan!!(I know they lost to Notre Dame, who lost to Michigan State.)

    I got nothing to say .... Mason has had my hopes high for the last two years. I'm not getting hyped up until we either win this weekend or on Oct. 8th. And we all know what game that is.

    That team is one of two Big Ten teams Mason has never defeated since he took over. The other one is Purdue.

    I am cheering for the Gophers this week.

    This will be an interesting game I will watch because I have money on it. For some reason Minnesota is favored by 4.

    Interesting stat
    Purdue has the best run defense in the NCCA giving up 16ypg.
    Minnesota has the best run offense avg 335 yards a game.

    Purdue has played halfway decent teams though.

    I'll tell ya right now that Maroney will get more than 16 yards rushing and he'll probably have at least one carry that will go for 16 or more yards!

    I believe that they are second in the NCAA in run defense. But this will be a huge test, and I hope that we finally are able to take Purdue down and start a nice little run.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
