OSU vs Minnesota

September 27


The Gophers return 15 starters on a squad that went 1-11 in 2007 under first year head coach Tim Brewster.  Coach Brewster is optimistic about 2008 but road games with  Illinois, Purdue, Wisconsin AND Ohio State will be a tall task for any Big Ten team let alone one that is trying to rebuild.

By Pete Quint


    For the second straight week, OSU will face a mobile quarterback with a strong arm.  Unfortunately starter Adam Web throws almost as many touchdowns as interceptions.  Look for the Buckeye defense to put a lot of heat on the sophomore.  Injuries and being slightly undersized lead to a dreadful pass rush in 2007 and with many of the defensive starters back the massive Buckeye offensive line should be able to control the line of scrimmage.


    Don’t expect this game to be any different than last year’s 30-7 drubbing.  The Gophers are still adjusting to Brewster’s offense but should be markedly better.  Even with a year under Brewster’s scheme, the Buckeyes will be too much for Minnesota to handle.
