Gophers vs Air Force

First game in a new stadium, first time playing Air Force, should be a game of firsts, which I'm betting will lead to one dynamic drop-in after another from the broadcast team. The game this week is on the Big Ten Network, which should alleviate the female play by play, but we'll see. Anyways, we all already know that the first time somebody scores a touchdown Saturday it'll be the first in the new stadium, please don't feel the need to constantly remind us of this all day. Thanks.

Don't know much about Air Force other than they put up a shitload of points against some team called Travis Nicholas State that plays in a conference with Stephen F. Austin, whoever the hell that is. Regardless I'm sure they're real good and everything. So I was checking over these Air Forcers stats from last week and holy shit balls, they had 14 different people carry the ball for a total of 68 carries and 474 yards. Apparently they like to run the ball. I'm assuming this is even more skewed due to the fact that they were piss throttling Jarv, but their QB only attempted seven passes the whole day. Weber should have that many attempts to Decker on the first drive. Either that or he'll go the first half with zero catches, neither which would surprise me. Oh and one of their receiver's last name is Demerath, which is close enough in my book to hate him and wish harm to his achilles tendon.

All in all, the Gophers are 3 1/2 point favorites, put it in the bank. No way they lose to Wade the Blade and his gay buddies. Semper Fi bitches. Also just noticed that this post is rolling out at 9:09 on 9/9/09. I'm sure all these 9's mean something magical and lucky to Hindus or some other goofy bastards, so I got that going for me. Giggity giggity.


  1. They run a triple option offense, hence the 7 pass attempts and ass-load of rushing yards. You can't expect Jarv State to be able to keep up with the run all day, he's fat.

  2. Well shit, even when TRF ran the triple option and put up 500 yards rushing against a Pirate defense led by Palm-o-tron and Widman they couldn't help themselves from throwing it at least 10 times. Then again when you're playing QB and look up and see Al Trevino and Aaron Colsen playing DB how the hell do you NOT call a passing audible? Also, how often do you see a 250 lb linebacker in 10th grade playing the "air piano". I saw it once.
