Go, Go, Gophers!

I posted this last night, but it didn't take:

How 'bout those Gophers? 42-35 double OT thriller over then-#11 Purdue! Biggest win in Glen Mason's nine years (has it been that long already?!?!) in Minny.

The Gophers improve every year under Mason, but always seem to make mistakes and collapse at bad times. In the last three years, there's been a 21-point lead squandered to Michigan, a 28-point lead squandered to those same Wolverines, and a game in Iowa that saw Minnesota gain over 600 yards, and get beat by 20 points due to 7 turnovers, all inside the red zone!

But finally, behind Laurence Maroney (700 yards in only four games after his 217 against Purdue), the Gophers win a big one.

Reggie Bush who? The best back in the land is from St. Louis, and plays for the University of Minnesota.
