This text is replaced by the Flash movie. How does a fourth-string quarterback become so comfortable in the spread offense when he barely has any opportunity to run plays in practice? Easy.

Poor kid, he has a chance to get tackled by about 8 guys if he ever gets in. This is one pathetic football program.

Excited for the upcoming season. There should be lots of improvements. Grey should take over next season and we'll be off to the Rose Bowl.

The Vikings have NEVER won a Super Bowl and haven't even given themselves the chance to get their lunch handed to them in the big game since the mid 70s. There is little difference between the Gophers and Vikings in the last 20 years, except the NFL marketing machine's ability to sell their product to beer guts in zubaz and face paint.

It's been a long time since I was a kid heading back to the car from a saturday pheasant hunt with my family to have lunch and listen to the national powerhouse Gophers game. this program has been terrible since the Vikings moved into the state and the gopher program has played second fiddle in the polka band. I don't know what will turn this program around. Hopefully it will be the on campus state of the art stadium and Brewster. Hope springs eternal but a life has an end. Hope mine last long enough to see the gopher program back to being a national power, after all it is one of the truly great universities that this nation has and one of the largest.
