Brazen Predictions and Early Morning Open Thread: Minnesota

What does the staff have in mind for the Minnesota game?

As the season unfolds, and maybe as a byproduct of the absolute shellacking Penn State took last week, our staff’s predictions have become tamer for this game. Without further ado:

Clay: No Jerry Kill probably means no Minnesota Head coaching eating a Dilly bar on the sideline, so for that we mourn. In prediction talk, I think we see yet another slow start and more turnovers from PSU, but we see one of Penn State's linebackers step up and make a play. Manny Bowen, who has actually filled in quite nicely, forces at least one Minnesota turnover and swings momentum in the favor of PSU, leading to a W.

[ed. note: There was never a Minnesota Head Coach eating a Dilly Bar on the sideline]

Aaron: Penn State allows more passing yards than rushing yards in this game. And I mean that in a good way.

Chris L: MOAR SPECIAL TEAMS! 45 yards per punt for Gillikin, and John Reid finally breaks a return for a touchdown.

Ross: There will be 4 players with over 100 yards rushing by the end of the game. Three for Penn State

Lando: Three combined turnovers, two Penn Staters rush for 100 yards, and three score rushing touchdowns.

Dena: Zero targeting calls, 1 interception by our D, 2 field goals by Gillikin, 3 rushing touchdowns by Barkley, 4 quarters with PSU scoring, 5 receptions for Godwin

Tim: Trace McSorley throws for over 300 yards on a reeling Minnesota secondary and John Reid finally breaks a punt return for a touchdown.

Chris T: Marcus Allen will finish with more than ten tackles.

Cari: No matter what happens, the calls for Franklin's head will grow louder in the fanbase.

Eli: Minnesota will not record a sack.
