The Gophers' wins have been against four non-conference scrubs and their two B1G wins have been very fluky.  Played an emotionally worn down and injury riddled Northwestern team and still barely pulled that one out.  They beat Nebraska because Taylor Martinez is Taylor Martinez.  In their two losses to Iowa and Michigan, it's been shown that if you can stop the run against them they simply do not have the ability to throw the ball.  If they need to rely on their passing game they will be lucky to score double digits.  
Indiana, on the other hand, have been play offensive weapons and have the ability to keep it close with anyone.  Their defense may be a big sieve but they've been in every loss they've had, including B2B road losses at Michigan State and Michigan.  

That +10 is still a big number, especially if the Gophers can establish the ground game and control the clock.  I think it's so high because in all likelihood MN simply will not be able to keep pace with IND and will have to start throwing which will lead to unmitigated disaster.

So what your saying is, is that any win this team has over a good team is a fluke and you will find a reason to discount it, like your logic or Taylor Martinez being Taylor Martinez.

Yes I am absolutely saying that both their B1G wins have been flukes.

This just looks and feels like a giant trap.  Staying far, far away from this one.

So then if they win against Indiana, then that's going to be a fluke as well?

Depends on how they win if they win. I'm not betting the game. I'm just explaining why the line is so high and why I would exercise caution when so many are pounding Minny.

Indiana plays zero (0) defense and has dropped their last two while Minnesota is riding into Bloomington on a two game win streak both impressive road wins; yet Indiana is laying two scores…  Looks like the Wise Men in Vegas are welcoming Minnesota dollars so I’m going the other way…

 

With that said, put me down for Indiana minus the chalk at the house for three (3) C-Notes please.  Thanks!

All I am gonna say is if it looks too good to be true than it is. I've been bet on many IU games and know little about Minn being a Purdue Alum. IU rolls huge. This looks like a trap game like USC tonight. 28-7 at half IU

Indiana's defensive is AWFUL   . Any defensive coordinator that has his corners play 10+ yards off should be fired (Mallory).

Gophers better ground and pound all day as the Hoosiers can score from the ground and air. Regardless, the Hoosisers gets the win over an AVERAGE woodchuck team.

Indiana- 37
Woodchucks- 24

Over for the game or the half should be $$$.... indiana is home and their offense should put up at least 35. Minny csn ground and pound but I see a couple of 50+ yd td runs against an awful indiana defense. Points early and often as Indiana's o/u record is 6-1 and minny o/u is 5-3. Can see a 45-38 final score... at least a 24-17 game at the half

EVERYONE who made IU's :powder puff" defense a main factor in this game had it right it looks like.  The other factors were Minny's physicality advantage and superior coaching.   I got sucked in by the "double reverse" trap too here.

IU took way to long to get Roberson out of there today....again, Minny's coaching advantage.

Did that Minnesota coach actually go for it on forth down in his own end or was that a muffed kick?

IU fumbles at the end to lose the game ....A small solace for our losses on the Spread .   Another chapter to their losing pedigree program in memorable history.

Safe to say IU and Washington State have the worst major football programs in history.  I forgot Kentucky...sorry.

LOL!  Why is Kevin Wilson playing this Tre Robinson kid when he has another signal caller on the roster that will play on Sundays?  This game wouldn’t have been close if Sudfeld had started…  I am glad Indiana didn’t win this game as well…  At any rate, nice job Minnesota and Over backers!
