What A Game!

Well sounds like both Jer and I missed quite a game Saturday. Tim Brewster gets his first win over a ranked opponent as head coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers 16-13 over #12 South Dakota State in a hard-fought defensive battle. Sure, I would have liked to see a better offensive performance, but hey, when you can beat the 12th ranked team in the country, you take a win anyway you can get it. Our defense was awesome, and our offense did just enough to get a win. This has to be a huge confidence booster for our team, and I like our chances down in Iowa next week. Sure the Hawkeyes gave Ohio State everything they could handle on the road with a backup quarterback, but with that loss, the Hawks dropped to 13th in the latest BCS Standings. So if we can handle #12 at home and can play that well defensively, I like our chances of beating #13 on the road.

So a big congratulations to Coach Brewster on his first signature win, and hopefully he can get his second- as well as his first trophy game- this weekend in Iowa City. Well done Gophers!!

...hang on, Jer just called...apparently South Dakota State is ranked 12th in 1-AA... Really? Like there's supposed to be 120 1-A teams, and then 11 more 1-AA teams before we get to the Jackrabbits? And we only beat them by a field goal? And our offense didn't score a touchdown? And we couldn't even manage 300 total yards?

Ok so I take back everything I said earlier- we're screwed. And we're going to get KILLED at Iowa this week.
