The Minnesota Gophers football program is in need of a pick me up... Last Saturday the Golden Gophers played at Ohio State losing to the Buckeyes 38-7 in large part because of costly turnovers. The loss dropped the Gophers to 4-4, making their Halloween Game against Michigan State crucially important if they want to stay Bowl Game viable.
Saturday's loss could have been prevented which makes it even harder to swallow. There were 3 turnovers in the second half that let the Ohio State Buckeyes score 21 points. Without Eric Decker (more on that later as details emerge) the Gophers never really had a solid run at comeback. This weekend it will be very important that the healthy players on the Minnesota Gophers Football Roster make good plays and hold onto the ball. Without my love E-Deck, the Gophers are really going to have to step up to beat Michigan State.
