College Football 2003
« on: October 10, 2003, 06:02 PM »
I realize I may see like a Johnny Come Lately but I gotta throw out some kudos to the good ole alma mater who is sitting at 6-0

Probably the biggest 2 game stretch in my lifetime for the Mighty Minnesota Golden Gophers is coming up starting tonight with Michigan in town and Michigan State in town next week

It shall be a wonderful night and the dome might actually be sold out

They are talking riots here if they win as well which is asinine :-\

GO GOPHERS!

BTW up for grabs tonight is the Little Brown Jug, the longest running trophy game in College Football



The rivalry has been very Michigan lopsided but the Gophs are acutally favored tonight, we shall see!

Oh suuuuure, Mr. Bandwagon!   ::)   :-*

UCLA got off to a horrid start this season, and as such my interest in college football right now has quickly diminished to virtually nil...  See you guys next year though!   :P

And best of luck to "Scott's team" against Michigan...   ;)

Well I am a big Badgers fan have been for many years.., any way Scott the AX  is a much better trophy than the jug even if the jug is older ;)
 I didn't realize your team was 6-0 congrats- much like the Packers the Badgers droped a should have win already this year but I am hoping that they play like they should.

I think the Backyard Bowl is this weekend, UNC and East Carolina.

I don't think anyone cares, especially since the best thing East Carolina ever yielded was Jeff Blake.

UNC on the other hand had a handful of breakout stars, Julius Peppers for one.

What a weekend for college football- lots of great games upsets-   I am impressed with my Badgers nocking off Ohio State-  also have to ad a big WTF for the Renyolds choking incident with Sorgi in the game.   great game none the less. Did anyone else see that replay?

Yeah that was awful, I am glad the Badgers won...(you won't hear me say that again)

I won't comment on what happened Friday Night, let's just say the Little Brown Jug is still in Michigan  :-[

At this point I am interested in seeing if Norhtern Illinois can go unbeaten and possibly get into a bowl game of some sort.  I think they need to stay unbeaten just to have  a shot.   As of right now they are ranked #12.  It's funny to see them up there instead of Illinois or Northwestern.

Northern Illinois is ranked #10 in the BCS standings!  That is the first time in NIU school history for that to happen to them.  That's my old school baby!   ;D

After 2 tough losses the Gophers rebounded to crush the worst team in the Big 10 in Illinois, they finish with Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin all of which they probably should win (except Iowa will be tough)

10-2 would be an awesome year, might get them into a New Year's Day Bowl Game and be a huge boost to this once proud Football school

I forgot about that Scott-  I have to make sure I watch it.   With the Badgers play as of late I think you guys have the axe this year. The badgers really fell flat and Minnesota has been pretty good.   Either way I am atleast hoping for a good performance.

The Axe is back in Minnesota!

9-2 baby, Iowa you are next, time for some payback for your fans stealing the Metrodome's Goal Posts last year!
