    2020 Minnesota Vikings Off-Season Thread

    Part of the problem with the Vikings rebuild is that we'll have a hard time bottoming out when we have Detroit on our schedule. If we lose the two games against Detroit this year, we're just an 8-8 team and we're looking at a rebuild. We have a false sense that we are better than that because...

    2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate News...

    I like to think I'm pretty open minded to new ideas, but the student loan forgiveness seems to be a tough one for me to buy into. I think everyone could gain from people having the debt forgiven, some indirectly via home prices increasing due to more people being able to purchase. However...

    The stage for the 2020 NFL Draft in Las Vegas will be on the water at the Fountains of Bellagio; players transported by boat (picture)

    Watching people awkwardly walking off a pontoon boat afloat in a man-made pond doesn't sound like great TV.

    Phillip Howard enters transfer portal

    With Howard coming back, I assume PJ had one too many difficult conversations before they checked their math, or someone unexpected decided to leave. I'd like to picture PJ having a group conversations with about 15 guys. "I need 8 of you 15 guys to leave or sign medical retirement waivers...

    The dust has settled

    I wonder if there's a way to really quantify media bias in a game. Seems like we remember statements about other teams a lot more than positive statements about our own team. Also, saying "Auburn wants to be here" as they are getting beat. I take that as a positive comment for the Gophers. I...

    Ex-WI LB Borland: 15 guys lined up for injections

    First paragraph: There is a "selection bias" on the initial brains as I stated, but for almost all to show CTE shows something. It doesn't mean that 100% of football players get CTE, but it does appear to be a strong correlation of people that have had issues, also happened to have had CTE and...

    Ex-WI LB Borland: 15 guys lined up for injections

    (Not exact numbers, but)... When you scan 111 football brains and 110 of them have CTE, that's not a good start. Now sure, they are only sampling brains from people who were suspected of having something wrong perhaps, so it's not a fair representation of all football players. But in any...

    Ex-WI LB Borland: 15 guys lined up for injections

    "cause" I don't think CTE "causes" any physical movement. I think CTE will mess your brain the efff up. If your brain makes you rationalize that shooting someone is an appropriate action to take away your troubles, I don't know if that fits the description of "cause". But CTE can do that it...

    Ex-WI LB Borland: 15 guys lined up for injections

    Right. They were blaming the weight of bisexuality not being more broadly accepted as a possible factor as to why Aaron had so much pressure on him. If we want to do a % of blame, I'd going to go: CTE 15% Dad 20% Mom banging new guy right after dad died 5% Mom being too dumb to give a crap 15%...

    Sid: P.J. Fleck engineered historic Gophers turnaround; end of Claeys era "lowest points for any major college football program"

    My understanding is what you posted. PJ SAID he leaves it for the coordinators. On this board there have been some who have (either in error or on purpose) confused that to say he doesn't know X's and O's. My point is at this point it seems PJ might be a strong X's and O's coach since his...

    If PJ said that, Spoofin should add that to his signature line as one of those exaggerations.

    Ex-WI LB Borland: 15 guys lined up for injections

    Well, the Borland angle was to setup the CTE discovery at the end. Not only did Hernandez have it at age 27, but one of the worst cases seen for a person that age and the Dr. implies he probably got an onset of it 10 years prior. I think the show wanted to essentially point out multiple...

    This league is nuts

    It's the oddest I've ever seen the Big Ten standings. Still early, but a good number of teams with rankings near the bottom. Odd to see. Looks like if you get 8-9 wins in Big Ten you might make the NCAA's this year.

    Gophers' "Road to 19 Wins"

    I haven't been in here. Mainly been in the football forum, but was surprised to see this list not posted. Sounds like an odd year with a lot of other bad teams and the Big Ten is messed up right now. Could be a a 17-13 gets you in year, depending on a couple Q1 wins. Could use a couple more...
