    You're arguing a point that NOBODY has said. NO ONE has said that it is out of the question.

    Yes they have.

    Calling it a “less than 1% chance” would be saying it’s out of the question.

    I disagree, BTW. We have a better chance of beating the fightin’ gophers than we were legitimately to expect of beating App. Really. What were the odds on that game?

    (Is there any more pathetic mascot than a yard rat? That’s just sad. A burrow owl would be a better mascot.)

    And I would bet you a beer or 2 our 2011 georgia southern team would have beaten Minnesota that year. Minnesota made a great hire in Fleck and they are a quality team now.
    I'll do one better, I'll bet you 2 beers that GSU beats the Gophers this year.


    Jabo was a good option QB and made the correct calls. The only problem with Jabo was that he was neither quick to the LOS or fast enough to break the big plays against NDSU.

    In our last game against NDSU they were using the same strategy of focusing on the fullback and pitch forcing the QB to keep the ball and GSUs QB ate them up. we lost that game with back to back 15 yard defensive penalties and a fumble. GSUs mistakes cost us the last game with NDSU.

    TALON -OK the Gophers were a very poor P5 team that year. UDSU was probably out maned but they were not out coached. I hope GSU has progressed this year over last year.
    If so we have a good shot at the Gophers



    It appears that NDSU has done well against G5 and P5 teams since 2006 (9-3 good)

    Some say the Gophers are favored by 14+ points others say we have about a 30% chance

    I like to think that if our OOC FBS slate looked more like that in recent years (in lieu of UGA, Bama, Ole Miss, Auburn, WVU, Clemson, etc.) we would have a winning record, too.

    Let us hope it's only a matter of time and recruiting.

    They've got South Dakota State and Fresno State before they play us. I'll give my prediction 9/9/19.

    I think you will be able to give your prediction after the SDSU game while KJ will wait until after the Gopher game.

    Let's come back to this thread after we lose to Minnesota by 30.

    I'm focused on the games where we aren't a huge Longshot. Only way we're beating Minnesota is if they don't show up.
