The offense in the game was downright offensive also.   :pouty:

Gophers playing not to lose today just like they did against IA last week, all but guaranteeing that they will. Becoming more & more disillusioned with PJ all the time. Run Ibraham on 1st & 2nd down, throw an incomplete pass on 3rd, punt. Rinse & repeat. He'll be totally screwed next year. Fired at the end of next season.  :coffee:

I went outside & did chores at the end of the 3rd quarter I was so disgusted. When I come back in the wife says hey, they just tied it up. Watched the rest of the game as it was like a train wreck, I couldn't look away. Then I remembered, this is not the Bucky of old. The Gophers are only slightly less worse. Even Poppy was happy, letting numerous puppy farts rip! 💩

Gophers win the AXE for the second year in a row. Now comes a forgettable bowl game. They needed to beat Iowa last week and they would be playing Michigan for the Title.

 :scratch: It looked like a different guy playing QB this week to me. He threw for over 300 yds today & didn't even have 90 yds last week. :rolleyes: The last 1/2 of the 4th qtr was pretty crazy, even thought Bucky was gonna tie it up until the penalties started. Still a nice win for the Gophers.

Hey these are big kids. Maybe a few notches above that.  They did a great job and beat a real good team.  How much fun is that?  I  didn't agree with some stuff that they did but it worked out just great!!  It was a fun game to watch from my seat.

The Gophers will find out Sunday where they're headed for their bowl game, but if the expert predictions are solid then there's a good chance they'll be headed to New York for the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

PJ is getting close...

But there are a lot of other good Gopher head coaches before him who got close too.

I don't think it necessarily has ever been the coach's fault.

The elephant in the room is that Mpls, MN is is a Vikings town.  Why would an 18-year-old "Blue Chip" recruit want to come to MN to play on frozen tundra where Gopher football is only the 5th or 6th most popular sport in town when they could be a B.M.O.C. for a "Big Time" program in the Sun Belt, where the boosters can now "legally" get them big money deals signing autographs at car dealerships on their off days?   :confused:   :doah:

We will disagree that PJ is close. He was very good with Kills & Claeys players. But I believe he has been a average coach in a terrible West division. Had he been in the East he would be looking for a job. I will say he has cleaned up the program and the players like to play for him, thats always a plus. The argument that top players don't come to Mpls because they wouldn't be the top dog in town is pretty funny. Almost as funny as Sid always saying the requirements to get admitted were to tough.

Mpls / St. Paul is the BIGGEST Big 10 market in the Big 10 behind Northwestern & Chicago, maybe you could add Rutgers the New York area. (Soon you can add LA to the list). The bright lights and opportunities other than getting to the NFL are here.

For the record I'm OK with Pj, I'm OK with the U. PJ is the best they can hope for and his results are the best they can hope for year in and year out. He will always have them compete, most games they will play hard. And as I mentioned he keeps them off the police blotter or at least out of the newspapers.

But lets not make him or the program out to be more then they are or have been since 1960.

I think the playing outside in the cold is a turn off for a lot of players.

I could buy that argument if they hadn't played in a dome for 20+ years.

Wait till UCLA and USC join the Big ten. They will realign the 2 half's. Unless they just figure out schedules for all 16 teams. Gophers won't be in the weak sister anymore. We can look at playing Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, UCLA and USC more. And still keep Iowa and Wisconsin. Going to get a lot tougher.

I think more West coast teams are coming along with Notre Dame.

Big Ten really wants Notre Dame. It would give them the New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles TV markets. Northwestern is in Chicago but not a Notre Dame. I think they would take one of the Oregon schools.

Gophers sign Fleck to a new 7 year contract. He signed one last Nov. for $5 million a year. Just signed a new one for $6 Million.
