College GameDay

I think if we’re 8-0, and Penn State is even 7-1, then GameDay coming here will be a good chance. Trophy game, we’d both be ranked (hopefully we’re in the teens), awesome East vs. West Big Ten matchup, it’d be a potentially historic game. I don’t see how GameDay could pass us up, other than unfavorable weather.

Pass on Tiegen. Legend would get the nod if he's in town. Peter Najarian would also be good -- not sure if he's known enough outside of financial markets though. I'd still like Diggins the best, but I imagine she's probably into some hard core training about then.
Now that I think about it, it could be Whalen.

Best chance for College GameDay right now is either against PSU or against Whisky if both teams somehow still unbeaten. Why that would be better than the Game.

1. Two unbeaten teams.
2. Oldest rivalry
3. The Axe
4. Opportunity for Corso to spin Goldy's head
5. Jucy Lucys
FIFY.

If we were in the burbs or just outside the MPLS/St. Paul area I bet we wouldn’t have to as much. Maybe somewhere like Eden Prairie, Woodbury, etc.

The U would need to be a good hour or more outside the metro for its impact to be less.

If we're both 8-0, CGD will be here. Who will be Minnesota's celebrity game picker? Robert Zimmerman is probably a long shot. I'd vote for Jessie Diggins.

It's interesting that you're wondering who a celebrity picker would be, and then keep bringing up non-celebrities. Jessie Diggins? Pete Najarian?

Guess it all depends on your definition of celebrities. I consider both of them to be in that category. Another name is Tony Dungy.

What could have been, if the main U campus had been in Rochester near the Mayo Clinic. We’d be top 5 (public) in medical research grants and Gopher teams would be less in the shadow of Cities pro teams.
 
Whatever we as fans choose to focus on has zero impact on the outcome of any games.
You think these 18-22 year olds aren’t looking at what’s being written about them and wouldn’t be susceptible to buying into the hype? I search for Gopher news more than I care to admit and I’m a 35 year old fan.

Do you know any current or former Gopher football players? The ones I know have said they don't know what Gopherhole is. Maybe they are in the minority but I doubt it.

This is exactly what I think. Give the kids some credit. Most the stuff that is proposed on here as having an impact on recruiting, perception, interest, outcomes, etc. is comical. The idea that anything that any of us posters write on here impacts anyone other than other posters is ridiculous.
