This is a game we NEED, badly. Against our biggest rivals who are starting to get hot. Game is at 6 and on ESPN. There is no excuse for us to come out flat tonight at all. These boys better be playing with passion, intensity, heart, aggression, etc.
Michigan fan here who lived in Minnesota the last 6 years.. Good luck! I hope you guys roll Wisconsin and get back to the way you should be playing... Minnesota was the team I feared most as a Michigan fan entering the Big Ten schedule.
Like Beast said, this game is a must-win. The Gophers only need a few more wins to insure a tourney berth but this is a chance to beat a team that has a number of quality wins.
Not to mention, these kids don't want to get swept by the Badgers for the season. I expect Minnesota to come out strong but Bo Ryan's Badgers to make a close, deliberate game throughout. Should be a fun one, even if the scoring doesn't get past 50 points for either side.
