Rushing the field after beating psu.
Mine as well. Ibrahim just pushing the pile for the last first down to ice the game was just really something.Tough call but I will go with this.
The last possession against Auburn where the Gophers basically said its our ball, our game and you aren't getting either. It was pure desire and domination.
We started to see it in the previous seasons where situations that seemed insurmountable ... were becoming very doable / guys were making plays.Third and 29 at our own 7 yard line. The camera flashed to the GSU sideline and the HC has his arm around the neck of the DC. DD breaks free for a 22 yard catch. Camera goes back to the GSU sideline, the two coaches have separated. DD makes a catch for a 1st down. One last camera shot, the coaches have moved to different zip codes.
I kept taking deep, (I mean deep) breathes during that drive. There was a calmness about the team that I picked up on. Like you, I worried but felt comfortable (an unusual state). It was a game that defined the season even though GSU should have never been in the game.We started to see it in the previous seasons where situations that seemed insurmountable ... were becoming very doable / guys were making plays.
I was surprisingly less worried than usual at the GSU game .... (granted still a little worried )
That's one of those things that I both get ... and don't like.yeah, when Morgan did the sideline check, crowd about lost it
When PJ Fleck and the team were preparing to run onto the field before the Penn State team. Brought a tear to my eye. Chris Long from KSTP had a good video of it. I cant find it now.
This gets me.
I love how fan got in before the game started! look how full the stands where before kickoff. Now if only we can do that every game! And, how fans didn't leave early. We prove we can no excesses from now on.
I wasn't able to get tickets to this game (in hindsight, that was a good thing...) but I did do some tailgating beforehand. And I was about to board the light rail on campus to get home and watch when I heard the stadium erupt. I knew something awesome must have happened.
I've said this a few times, and I have no real way of proving it, but I swear I was part of the group in the student section that started this 2 seasons ago. It won't pretend like it was my idea, but for the first couple games of that season it was only our section doing it. It was so fun watching it expand each game last year, until this incredible moment. I love how it looks kind of like choppy waters (RTB). I'd imagine the entrance against Wisconsin was just as cool.
