That's what I figured but was hoping there would be some leaked info
If it was something else we would...concussion not likely. Might be til Tuesday before we hear anything outside of him not practicing.

edit: Someone said on Ghole that PJ mentioned that Tanner was trying to go back in after the mandatory play he had to sit but the coaches said no. If there is any validity to that than I am more optimistic he is ok.

Opening line for next week is Gophers by 7. Over/under is at 38, which seems extremely low.

NW is pretty bad offensively. If Morgan doesnt play that seems like a smart number for Vegas.

If Morgan had survibed the game it would have been Gophers by 10-12 with an over/under around 45 I bet.

Hey, we beat UMass (who kinda has a football team, I guess) by 39.

The Gophers should roll, but this has the possibility of a let down loss to a bad team.

I would have been more worried had we beat Iowa. We do often struggle with NW though so the worry is there.

Didn't get to see any of the game, as I was at work. Now they have to get to Indianapolis the hard way. They control their own fate, so it's there for the taking.

Nope. Who have they beaten that makes them Top 10? Auburn at home? Sorry but that is the "SEC IS DA GREATEST" BS that ruins college football.

To be a Top Ten Team you need to prove it. All they have proven is they are worse than the Top 2 teams in the conference and that they can beat up on some bad squads.

I 100% believe they're logistically looking into it and prepping in case they choose to do so. I also firmly believe they're doing this at at least one of the other marquis games as well give it's rivalry week. Given we are 99% likely playing for the right to go to Indy, it makes sense.

Saw the Gopher twitter account released some things to know about the game, no mentions of Tanner being out so will assume he is fine to play

If GameDay does come, someone needs to make sure this sign gets on TV. It would be pretty epic to see in a huge, glossy format.

It seems like game day is considering coming here, they’ve booked a few things needed, but they do that at a few places.

I would assume it is the opposite since it is concussion related.

Morgan is currently listed as the starter. I don't know if they do that even if a player is questionable/doubtful?

These aren’t accurate. Kamal was listed as the starter for MD and for PSU.

I would like to think that with the amount of whining we heard about GameDay before that people would find a way to show up. I would assume most of the fans are local enough to drive here.

Whining comes from a vocal few relative to the masses you need to make a big impression. I'd hope to be pleasantly surprised.

The game is near a sell out (and I believe student tix were doing good last I saw) so I dont think Thanksgiving will hurt it much. If it does...well...then it isnt on the U or Game Day.

The Thanksgiving idiotic decision has clearly had an impact on ticket sales for that game. Check the difference between Thursday and Friday. The Whioux fans that are gonna overrun the arena don't want to come down on Thanksgiving day (for those they aren't already in the Cities).

It sounds like UW returned about 600 tickets from their allotment - those are available for sale now as well.

Gophers drop to 10 in the CFP Rankings. I believe they were the only top 10 team to lose.

I’m ok with that. 10 with a loss is ok. Win the next two and we will be back up in the 6-7 spot. Would love to finish in the top 10 come bowl selection.

Morgan is a game-day decision. If he can't go that would obviously even things up considerably.

So everyone hates on the SEC and ESPN, but if they put two SEC teams into the playoff, it's possible three Big Ten teams go to Big Six bowls. This one has us going to Miami for the Orange bowl against an unranked ACC team. (ACC only has one ranked team. Yikes.)

Miami in the winter wouldn't be too bad... Obviously that assume 11-2. I would think the Orange Bowl would prefer 10-2 Florida, though.

The Gophers making a better bowl doesn't make the over rating of the SEC better.

Why would 11-2 and OSU winning out not get them the Rose Bowl?

It assumes a 2 loss Penn St team is higher rated than the 2 loss Gophers.

Is the Rose bowl just going off rankings now? I thought it was based off record and if there is a tie for record then whichever team hasn’t been there more recent was chosen.

It doesn't make sense for Minnesota to NOT get the Rose Bowl if both Penn State and them finish 10-2. Minnesota will have two wins vs. teams in the top 12 whereas Penn State will have only two wins vs. teams ranked 16 and 17 at the time they played them. But I keep reading how Penn State will get the Rose Bowl by several writers. :confused2:

I believe I saw someone report that the Rose Bowl has some leeway in picking their teams this year, since it is not part of the CFP rotation. I actually have a hard time imagining this decision going beyond the team that loses the B1G championship game, but you never can tell. It would really be a shame if MN gets to the B1G championship game, loses, and then misses out of the Rose Bowl based on CFP rankings.

Beat NW.
Beat WI.

Don't worry about the rest.

It hasnt been that way since the BCS. It is supposed to go by highest ranked in the CFP but it isnt a catch all. There is always wiggle room cause ultimately it is the Big Ten that decides.

If the Gophs make the Title Game they arent ending up in the Citrus Bowl.

They are assuming that the Gophers wont draw and that say Penn State will be a better fit so the Rose Bowl will make the move. (I believe it has happened in the past though not since the CFP came around) The Rose Bowl doesnt have the same worries that the Outback Bowl does though so they can take the Gophers and not have it hurt the bottom line.

A get in price in triple digits confirms this is the biggest game in stadium history and I assume the biggest home game in 20 years or maybe my whole life?

I have to get an MRI on game day at the clinic on Fulton at 4:45. Probably finish up when the game is ending. :roll:

It depends. The concussion protocol is set up a specific way and we dont know enough to say. (and Fleck is beyond tight lipped on this stuff) I have always figured they would sit him because honestly the game doesnt really matter (we can lose and the only thing it hurts is our ranking) and we should be able to be a bad NW team without the need to throw it 30 times for 300 yards. Plus, I gotta assume Clark and Kramer can throw a crossing route in single coverage if NW stacks the box ;)

If Sconnie couldnt sell out their allotment of tickets then most of the fans in the stands should be Gopher fans.

Agreed. I really do not expect Morgan to play this weekend. That being said, getting back in the groove with the running game is what I'd like to see this weekend. Maybe a few safe passes down the field.

He has two attempts and an interception in 3 games this year. I thought they had a former 5* Clemson QB transfer. Where did he go?

Hard to believe how hard they have fallen from the Big Ten Championship last year.

I hope we can breeze to a win tomorrow, but don't look ahead to WI in this 360 switch of atmosphere from Kinnick to Ryan Field

EDIT: Aidan Smith who is out was not a great QB either with completing right around half of his passes for just over 4 yards per attempt along with three touchdowns and nine picks.

He was dealing with a knee injury and IIRC his mother was undergoing treatment for breast cancer back in October so he missed some time to be with her. He played against Indiana and went 7/17 for 65 yards.

That said, he's completing 47% of his passes with 1 TD and 4 INTs with 106 pass attempts.

Northwestern's offense is bad. The Gopher defense needs to take advantage of it. Northwestern's defense is good (not Iowa or Penn State level but still good). Gopher offense can't give them the ball.
