    All in all, a good season with positives

    We have a set QB for next year and a team that knows the bitter taste of failing in a big game. Time for the coaches to recruit better players. Time for us to enjoy a decent bowl game, be happy with 10 or 11 wins and look forward to next year. Time to say goodbye to seniors who stuck it out...

    There's a reason no one bothers to watch anymore (UND series)

    At one point of the game Thursday night I said to my wife "North Dakota is faster than us, hits harder than us, more solid on defense, better at passing and far more skilled. Other than that it is pretty even." 9-3 loss at home with over half the crowd in green. Motzko has a long way to go...

    This is a scary game for Wisconsin

    I was thinking about this today. Think about this game from their point of view. They have more or less owned the west since its inception. Sure Iowa and Northwestern have a year now and then, but its been pretty much all Wisconsin the rest of the time. And here comes Minnesota, who with a...

    San Diego viewing party

    Anyone else in the San Diego area going to watch the game versus Penn St at an establishment? I'll be there with a couple buddies and we're still trying to find the best sports bar that's actually open at 9. Many don't open until 10...

    2nd team defense

    Let's talk about things good teams talk about (and so not usually us). Anyone concerned by how big of a drop off the second team defense was yesterday against Rutgers? All off a sudden a team that had like 80 yards of offense the entire game ripped open holes on running plays and our...

    Best of times, worst of times: Why the Big Ten is a historical anomaly this season

    Look Who's Still Standing

    Look who's still standing At what point do we start taking Baylor seriously in the Big 12? Or how about Minnesota in the Big Ten? Both teams entered Saturday unranked, but both are now 5-0. Baylor went on the road and dominated a strong Kansas State team, while Minnesota finally snapped its...

    Karma - Gopher Style

    As a long time Gopher fan, I've seen us lose every which way. This year has been really refreshing. Probably need to recap... 1. South Dakota St. - Normally we're the team that fumbles away a game they are dominating late in the 2nd half and then watch as the other team takes the ball...

    Under-the-radar game of the day (MN v GSU)

    From ESPN P.J. Fleck must have done something amazing in a past life, because he has plenty of karma on his side in 2019. Minnesota moved to 3-0 with a Tyler Johnson touchdown pass with 13 seconds to play to upend Georgia Southern 35-32. It was the third straight one-possession win for the...
