    1. Clemson
    2. Wisconsin
    3. Oklahoma
    4. Georgia
    5. Oregon
    6. UCF
    7. Cincinnati
    ****8. Minnesota

    Yeah that’s odd. They finished 64th in the nation averaging 170.8 YPG on the ground last year. Even their passing game was anemic at 208.8 YPG.

    You are right, its 170 on the ground & 208 receiving. On different sites they have different averages. Then again I could be switching the 2 around. I dont see the 208 receiving as being right.

    If the site I looked at is right with 170 & 208 per game with 27 points a game then anyone that says we cant beat them is on juice!

    I think too many folks look at their bowl game vs Ga Tech.....

    That's not a great example....

    I think GT by that time was pretty de spirited. Many of the coaches were undoubtedly involved in job searches at that point, and probably a lot of players who were recruited for that specific type of football knew they would not be starting again.

    It looks to me very similar to our game against Gag after Fritz left. No reason on Earth we should have lost that one.

    The Gophers say that they have 5 QBs that could beat GSU and yet they haven't settled on one yet.

    Gopher Poster- If QBs aren’t elite they just aren’t going to be remembered in glowing terms. As noted Mitch was a warrior and literally carried the team to victory at times (eg Nebraska) but was prone to bad games at times (Wisconsin every year) and he wasn’t the most accurate guy in the world. It’s pretty incredible what he did on a bad foot...and his coaches didn’t always help him out with *plenty*of tough to convert third and longs and maybe a scheme and WR corps that made things tougher than they had to be...

    Scott Slone - Defensive Coordinator at GSU.

    The defense had 15 interceptions and was a big part of the +22 scoring margin that led the FBS.

    The Eagles posted the best improvement in the FBS in defensive yards per play from 2017 to 2018, as well, moving up 72 spots in a year. The group finished first in the Sun Belt in interceptions, second in turnovers forced, third in total defense, third in rush defense .

    If Sloan has improved last year defensive squad then we will be sound on defense. The trick is the offense and how much it has improved.
