    Once more the Gophers fail to manage a bowl win. Looks like they'll fall just short, 34-31.

    I guess I'll have to root for Northwestern now....ugh.

    How I am so disappointed with my Maze and Blue warriors.

    Actually...I'm not a Gopher fan (Go Bucks!!), but since I live here and they're a big 10 team, I still root for 'em. Go Northwestern, I Guess.....

    I was at the Music City Bowl with Alabama's band last year when the Gophers laid a whuppin' on us. That running back from last year was something else. BTW, I had a chance to talk with some Minnesota fans after the Battle of the Bands last year and they were the nicest fans of any school we've played against. Maybe there's just not the animosity that exists among SEC schools, or maybe Minnesotans are really that nice -- either way, it was refreshing. Imagine that game -- the two of the most stereotypical accents ever matching up against each other!

    I can only imagine:

    "Y'all enjoy the game?"

    "Yah, yooo betcha."

    MN fans ARE nice...maybe that's the problem. FOlks around here never get worked up about a game that much. OSU fans will go nuts if the Buckeyes fail to at least tie for the conference title, Minnesota fans are thrilled just to get to a bowl game....I seriously think some of that ferociousness is what drives other programs forward while some perpetually wallow in mediocrity. MN sports fans are used to, and generally accept, mediocrity....

    Same old Gophers.
    The defense gave up two long drives in the fourth quarter, one 77 yard drive and the game winning drive starting on the Virginia 3 yard line.

    Some things never change for the Gophers........the defense ALWAYS chokes in big situations! :bash:

    Oh well, there's always the hope of "we finished eighth in the Big Ten" bowl game next year.
