The freshman QB earns high marks by avoiding turnovers, big losses.

I like the Gopher's chances for a win (s) during their next two games,especially, against Michigan State. May even be able to beat Nebraska if their big running back cannotplay and/or if Martinez plays erratically the entire game rather than just the usual one or two quarters. Maybe Gray will pick up a couple of touchdowns on catch and run plays.

I like the positivity. Normally too much negative comments in here. Nebraska will be tough one. That QB will be tough to stop if he starts running all over the place. He does have trouble passing though. That MSU game could be winable. It all depends on which MSU team shows up. They've been an up and down team this year. (I guess that goes for the Gophers too)

Nelson has done a nice job protecting the ball the last few weeks, especially for a freshman QB. However, I think the coaches will have to open up the game plan on offense a bit against Nebraska. They will be tough to run against, playing at home, and I don't think 13 or 17 points are going to be enough to win this game unless the defense plays over its head.
