Thread: And some say we really don't have a chance against Gophers

The Eagles also had an FBS-best +22 turnover margin. Minnesota's going to have a challenge to stop the triple option, but ESPN has this as the highest probability for a win all season for the Gophers.

    So....South Dakota State has a higher chance of beating Minnesota than a 10 win FBS team. FPI can be fun to look at, but sometimes it just doesn't make sense.

    Depends on what FPI tracks as most important. Cause we weren't exactly fantastic in either FEI or S&P last year because our offense was fairly anemic at times. Defense and special teams kept us in games and we would pick up on offense as the game progressed.

    We have a lot of room for improvement (which I've been saying since last season that I think a year of consistency will do a world to fix). The good news is that we finished with 10 wins and there's still stuff to improve. That bodes well for us.

    ESPN actually has stats for FCS as well, so they could be using adjusted production by SDSU to come to those numbers.

    I used to drag FPI a lot, but it seems to have gotten better as it's collected more data and I'm sure the models have been improved.

    I don't think the "row your boat guy" is going to take us lightly, he will have his kids ready to play.

    From the Gopher Board

    per Schyvinck:
    Minnesota Golden Gophers: 6.5 wins

    It seems every year we talk about how this is the year for the Golden Gophers under P.J. Fleck. When looking at their schedule in 2019, it looks doable to reach seven wins as they did in 2018. They don’t play either Michigan school and they avoid Ohio State. The problem with this team is that they are by far the most inconsistent in the Big Ten. Are they the team that dismantled Purdue and Wisconsin, or are they the team that got thrashed by Maryland and Illinois? The good news is that they get Penn State, Nebraska, and Wisconsin at home this year. The bad news is that they probably still lose two of those three games. With probable losses against Purdue and Iowa on the road, their seven-win season will likely hang in the balance of taking care of Illinois and Maryland at home. I just don’t see them getting both of those games.

    Prediction: 6-6 (under)

    Sure would be nice to show up that trash-talking jackwagon....

    I mean “row the boat?” What the hell kind of slogan is that?

    So pedestrian and lame....

    It’s the football equivalent of “don’t run with scissors.”

    What a cheese ball

    Like I said JC, an EAGLE torpedo should do nicely!

    Here's to you JC!

    US Navy's best torpedo bomber of WW2 the TBF Avenger .I decided that a torpedo dropped from the air identified better with the EAGLES vs a rowboats. Start short video at 1min 30 sec and watch for about 25 seconds.
