yes but we have had at least that on ND football also. Today they were kind enough to combine the two and we only have one story.

Nope. 3rd T&R is about Minny

They can have him.

he should've gophered it...

Off topic, but did you guys watch any of that Oregon game last night? Holy @#%@$#%! I don't feel so bad anymore about UTK losing to them.

October 22, 2010  08:57 AM ET

I can't see him taking the Minnesota job over the ND job at all... so what are we talking about here.

I was more impressed by the tempo which they played. The team is impressive though.

Two Gopher threads in one day. Is it the offseason?

Probably pays better at Minnesota than at Cincinnati.

No, FJJ. The contract didn't say "angus" burgers.

I was impressed with how quickly Oregon's "hurry up" offense operated against Tennessee, but I think the Ducks' offense was lining up even faster last night against the Bruins than they did against the Vols. Glad we don't have to play them again for a couple of years.

Maybe Minnesota can hire Weis or Mangino. They both have plenty of built-in insulation for those cold November games.
Quint, by the way.

Maybe Rick can get a job at Minnesota! Nah, Oregon looks like the real deal this year and will probably be in the BCS championship game.
