Pick your glass

Is yours half empty or half full?

If your Bison vs. Gophers glass is half empty, here’s to you:

*  Gopher offensive linemen are the best combo of agility and strength that NDSU has seen.

*  Gopher receivers and TE are the best group that NDSU has played (BSU not far behind.)

*  Gophers have been solid at home against everyone, even Penn State and Michigan.

*  Gophers desperately need a win and aren’t likely to be complacent Saturday.

*  They’re still the Gophers and more talented at most positions.

*  Gopher DB’s are tall and fast, LB’s better than any the Bison have seen, not even close.

*  Gopher QB is a solid pocket passer who is effective when given time.

*  They smoked Kent State on the road, who’s probably the same type of team as Ball St.

If your glass is half-full, here’s to you:

*  Bison Minnesota boys will use the Gopher recruiting snub as motivation.

*  Bison coaches don’t have to concede anything to the Gopher staff.

*  NDSU has a team spirit and a belief in each other that is very rare.

*  Bison actually believe they can win (this is 90% of the battle)

*  Gopher defensive backfield moving some people around at an awkward time.

*  Matchups aren’t bad for NDSU. Bison size matches up well with Gophers on both lines.

*  NDSU linebacker size matches up well with Gopher rushing attack.

*  Bison have not yet been roasted by a pocket passer (Cupito fits in category)

*  1-AA’s have beaten some 1-A’s.  Is Minnesota much better than Indiana or Northwestern?

*  Bison kicking and punting game maybe a bit better than the Gophers.

*  NDSU has been good in the underdog role, and has nothing to lose.

My prediction: 34-23 Gophers, would not be shocked to see it a bit closer.
