2020

Expectations were high in 2020 for the Gophers after a brilliant 2019 run, but instead they fell on their face. It wasn’t that they were bad, but they really just never got into any kind of rhythm.

2021

The good news is that the O might be all but unstoppable in 2021. Tanner Morgan has a stable of good receivers, several good running backs, and possibly the best O line in the conference. The bad new? They’ll need every point they can get, because the D isn’t going to be very good. Expect a lot of scores that look more like the Gophers basketball scores.

If Things Go Well

9-3

If the D can just be respectable the Gophers can outgun most of the teams on the schedule.

It They Don’t

7-5

The last 3 games are a tough stretch, but even if the D is terrible the Gophers will still reach the post season.

Prediction

8-4

Catching Ohio State early with a new QB is a blessing. They’ll probably lose, but if it’s a decent showing… even if it’s not, for that matter, they should still be 6-1 heading into Northwestern. 4 of the last 5 games are tough, and two are on the road; the Gophers will beat Illinois and should be able to split the other 4…. and that might be enough to lant in the Big Ten title game.
