I think PJ should use most of this for his pre-game speech. My Chili just took a 1,000,000 Scoville leap.This team will have some opportunities to capture attention around the college football world in the upcoming weeks. The first big example of that will be the name-brand visit by the bib-overall wearing gents from Nebraska. Great opportunity for an improving Gopher team to make a statement in front of a lot of newly interested fans locally, and even casual fans nationally that haven't been paying close enough attention to college football to realize Nebraska has become Northwestern with better home game attendance now.
.....How can one's chili not be ultra-hot in this march to 8-0 where if it is achieved, would set the stage for a two week love-fest over the Gophers that would be unprecedented nationally, if not locally. I can barely imagine the hype leading up to the Penn State game if the gophers were 8-0. And if you are about to remind me the team should focus on Nebraska first, save your typing fingers. I get it. But anything I daydream about here has literally no effect on Gopher prep for their next game. I'm a fan, I can look ahead and count my chickens before they are hatched.
My mother's favorite joke was about a couple that was so old they were on their second bottle of Tabasco. When she was on her second bottle of Tabasco she found it less funny.My chili is so hot this week that Scandinavians cry just being in the same house as it.
