Saturday’s finally here. Thank goodness. Curiosity has been killing this cat.
What to expect? No idea. I can see NDSU losing by 4 TD, and I can see them pulling out a late win. It’s just like Ball State, you THINK the other team is better, but how much?
It would be great theater of course for the Bison to pull out a miracle today, but in some strange way, don’t we need the Gophers to prevail? OK, hear me out on this before you send incendiary devices to my house–
First the Bison go out and beat Montana in Football. Then it was Wisconsin in BB, then Ball State FB, now this??? Don’t we need some order restored here? What else can we hold on to for stability and rational reference pointing if we can’t expect the Gophers to beat a 1-AA team? (no matter how good the upstarts might be)
Will gasoline return to affordable levels?
Will property taxes in Fargo go down?
Will Bucky Maughan start writing poetry?
What, pray tell, will start happening if this game goes the way of the hoofed? Nothing will be sacred anymore, I tell you, and soon Amy Ruley and Gene Roebuck will be exchanging Hallmark Cards, and Joe Chapman and Chuck Kupchella will be seen arms around shoulders, swilling ale, and singing Irish folk tunes at O’Garas.
