    What's the "weirdest" thing you've witness a co-worker do AT work?

    Bored at work here currently and I just witnessed something rather odd. A co-worker who is baseline "goofy" and rather uncouth regarding social etiquette was just back in our break room where he was fixing his bachelor supper thus: An open bag of spicy hot Doritos with about 30 intact chips...

    Let's change it up. What's your most embarrasing moment involving Gopher football?

    No you can just write being a Gopher football fan is embarrasing in and of itself. Mine probably occured in West Lafayette in 2002. At the time it was my third time embarking upon the worst road trip locale in the Big Ten so I knew the lay of the land pretty well. The game was slated for a...

    Will the 9/7/13 game at New Mexico State be picked up by TV?

    More baffling than the decision to cough up $800K to get out of the North Carolina series was the U's agreement to play a game at New Mexico State for this coming season. How could the financials not be in our favor to host this game? This game will be destined to be broadcast online via...

    Will the City of Mpls lift restrictions around the U on gamedays?

    Looks like the City of Mpls is trying to be more fan friendly and create a more festive atmosphere for the Vikings. Will the University try to capitalize? Are food vendors and trucks in the future? Would the city dare allow the University to close down streets around the stadium...

    James Franklin must think Jerry Kill is one of the great college football recruiters

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/football/sec/story/2012-06-01/james-franklin-wives-vanderbilt-apology/55324764/1 I think Coach Kill eluded to it during his introductory news conference in self-deprecating fashion that he probably outkicked his punt coverage with his wife.

    He had me at "sumbitch"

    Finally purchased airfare for the USC. Had been on the fence for a long time due to various reasons but eventually the lure watching a game at the fabled LA Coliseum / USC football / Song Girls / Road Trip were too much to pass up. Ever since this matchup was announced I knew I wanted to be...

    What advice would you give the Kills?

    Buy your new home close to campus. You'll be driving that route a lot. I would imagine rush hour in DeKalb isn't quite what it can be in the Twin Cities. I don't want to hear any Dan Monson-like whining that the drive in from Eden Prairie interfered with doing your job. I can't imagine JK...
