The Gophers find new ways to fail every week and, really, it’s getting to be quite sad.
After once again driving into Michigan State territory thanks to a couple of nice plays with MarQueis Gray in the “Wild Gopher” formation, the Gophers found themselves with third down and about a foot from the MSU 41-yard line as we switched from the first quarter to the second.
On third down, the Gophers handed the ball to DeLeon Eskridge. . .who failed to convert.
On fourth down, the Gophers handed the ball to Jon Hoese. . .who, also, failed to convert.
Michigan State ball at their own 41, and with about 13 minutes left before halftime, the Spartans lead 7-0.
