    Fong bomb!

    And I thought I’ve been on fire... not even close to what you’re putting out there! Love it! These things are all true, and yet they completely miss the point of my post. The OP said Fleck would jump at the chance to leave Minnesota for Nebraska and everyone outside of the state of Nebraska...

    Fong bomb!

    Second, what 'squeaky clean Catholic boy' has a kid from a previous relationship that he doesn't have custody over for a large portion of the year? Um, what? He's divorced and has a couple of kids from his first marriage. Shares custody with the mom throughout the year. They had an infant die...

    Fong bomb!

    Yeah, the creepy thing is just silly. Annoying, yes. Ummm, no. Not a chance. You Husker fans need to stop breathing your own fumes. The Nebraska job is not the Holy Grail you think it is. There is 0% chance Fleck would ever leave MN for Nebraska for a variety of reasons. Notre Dame, on the...

    Fong bomb!

    I've been borderline OCD about Gopher football recruiting for 35 years and can tell you the truth lies somewhere between Laurentdalmeida and timsun. The pattern of top MN prospects going out of state is nothing new and has absolutely nothing to do with PJ. However . . . it has not gotten any...

    Fong bomb!

    Fleck is turning the COVID-19 lemon into lemonade. His staff put together this "virtual visit" thing and apparently it's been a huge hit. They get the kid, parents, grandparents and siblings on a video conference and show them around the facilities, have online meetings with position coaches...

    Covid 6.0

    I do think it's safe to say the healthcare system in NYC is overwhelmed, though. Bodies stacked in refrigerator trucks and calling for healthcare volunteers nationwide is not a sustainable situation. Of course, if that never repeats anywhere else in the U.S., it will absolutely appear that we...

    Covid 6.0

    Read an interesting article yesterday about the cover-up in China. They've always claimed a death total of 3,000 or so. However, the buzz out of Wuhan suggests it was exponentially higher. One intelligence analysis of the number of people picking up cremation urns at the funeral homes in Wuhan...

    Covid 6.0

    The comparison to annual flu deaths is rather silly. Yes, up to 80,000 in the U.S. die from the flu in a bad year, but that's for an entire year with no distancing or shutdown measures. More importantly, at no point does the healthcare system get overwhelmed in that scenario. For comparison...

    JD gone probable

    Yeah, this doesn't add up. Tyler Johnson graduated and the #2, #3 and #4 guys from the last 2 seasons are all back. Two WRs recently retired for medical reasons; both had recurring injuries and never got close to playing in a game in 2 years. Another WR recently left; had a grand total of 1...

    Expectations year 3 for Frost

    I know some will try to use Fleck and MN as an example of a coach having success year 3. I don't think that is a valid example. They were in a better place when Fleck took over. Minnesota fan here. I keep chuckling when I see this myth. MN was a smoking crater when Fleck took over. The...

    Congratulations Minnesota Gophers

    Fair enough. The Gopher OL is getting better and did hold their own most games this year. (Wisky totally stuffed them, though.) However, I would argue the MN/NU game this year was more about your defense. Not to pile on, but something isn't right there. Get rid of that junior college DC of yours...

    Congratulations Minnesota Gophers

    The Gopher line may be bigger but that doesn't mean they're good. Only 2 of them would rank with the guys you recruit every year. Plus, they're young. Not one senior at OL on the roster, started 2 jrs, 2 sophs and a frosh yesterday. Better coached, yes. More talented, no.

    Congratulations Minnesota Gophers

    Lifelong Gopher fan here. I'm too cheap to pay for a forum so I like to peruse the free boards and this thread caught my eye. A few opinions from someone who has obsessively followed college football in general and Gopher football in particular for decades (the latter not an easy thing to do, if...
