Open Game Thread :: Game #13 :: Insight Bowl :: Minnesota 7-5 (3-5) vs. Kansas 7-5 (4-4)

Here it is.

What we've all been waiting for.

It should be a decent game, against a mostly quality opponent, in a game that most college football fans couldn't care less about. Plus, with its banishment to the always-awesome-but-exclusive NFL Network, it shouldn't draw too many eyeball.

But as long as we win, it doesn't matter much. That's the key, here. Win. I want to start some long-ass bowl winning streak. It stands at 2 currently, obviously, but I want to go up, up, up. And while the most important aspect of getting into bowl games is to get those extra practices, it is fun to win them as well. So hell, why not win?

I bet we do win, in fact, although they keep us on our toes for the first 3 quarters-or-so. I bet Eric Decker burns us at least once, and their newly-developed power running game might give us some fits. But our offense is too explosive to be contained for too long, and I bet Dezmon Briscoe explodes.

Kansas 38 Minnesota 20.

I will be at the game, but if any of y'all want to chat the game up, make sure and drop in here.
