Gopher Football Team Needs Confidence (and Eric Decker)

The Gopher Football Team (once again) let me down and broke my ever tender Gopher heart. I seriously thought we could give Michigan a run for their money, but even with the Gopher Gold roaring it’s loudest at the beginning of the game, it was quickly silenced as most of us realized the Gophers weren’t looking very stellar and the fact that Michigan brought their “A” game didn’t help.

Michigan Wolverines devoured the Gopher Gold offense. Gopher Quarterback Adam Weber was totally off kilter early and never recovered. He was sacked 4 times, but it was hard to tell if it was the offensive line that let him down OR (I believe this) he was holding the ball too long and the Gopher receivers weren’t stepping up like they need to.

Yes, it’s clear Adam Weber NEEDS Eric Decker. Gopher Nation NEEDS Eric Decker. My husband throws a fit that one player can make such a difference, but I proclaim that if your best friend is on the field with you, you feel invincible…whether or not you are is not important, it’s all about how you feel. When Adam Weber feels confident, he plays better -duh. When Adam Weber has Eric Decker on the field, he plays better. In fact, the Gophers haven't scored a touchdown since Decker was injured – yikes.
