They simply got outskated for most of the weekend and out executed on special teams.

The better team won both games.
I didn't say the better team didn't win both games, but if you call what you saw on Friday "hard work" then SCSU is screwed for the entire season, not just last weekend.
You have your opinion and I have mine, not to mention that pretty much everyone I've talked to (save you) has said St. Cloud did not play hard especially in the Friday game and this includes some very hard core Gopher fans.
I give credit to MN, they kicked our butt and deserved to win.
But after watching the players on this team for the past 2-3 years, that was not a good effort and they were not working hard.
