Re: Gophers v MUCabama

It comes down to defensive backfields, I reckon.  Would MUC linebackers be able to stop Gopher short passes and how would the dbacks do against the occasional long bomb?  The Gophers would not even need to try running, really, and could play around the Bama line all day.

Same on other side of the ball. If the Gopher dbacks could shut down the MUC passing game then the Gopher linebackers could blitz every play and overwhelm the Bama linemen.  The box could be jammed up every play leaving the MUCabama Purple Tide with few options.
Are the Gophers Rowing the Boat in this hypothetical scenario ?
As of now they're on DOUBLE SECRET Probation!

From the "hot stove league" department, for all you Johnnie faithful, the Milwaukee paper yesterday had a note that one Joe Lang, TE and LB from New Berlin Eisenhower HS, will attend SJU this fall.  Lang was named honorable mention all-area by the Journal-Sentinel.  NB Eisenhower had a very good team this year and was state runner-up in Class 3 finishing with a 13-1 record.

Now back to our regular off-season programming . . . .

We would see a lot of this, or worse.

Not sure they’d be able to shut down mounts pass game. Hill could be a legit NFL prospect and they have they currentlu have the deepest WR Corp since Garcon and Shorts were on the field together. I’m also a Mount fan so I’m obviously biased.

It took a long time but the Vikings finally delivered the long expected “Here we go again” sinking feeling that Vikings fans come come to love like a hostage learns to love the terrorist.  Those crafty buggers did their best to convince us that they were over the chokes but we knew. Yes, they held out until the 3rd quarter break in second round of the post season, the sly foxes, but they still delivered.

And the inevitable go ahead TD pass from Brees which is sure to be followed by a Viking three-and-out.

I must admit, this season's script has been a marvel.  Vikings Suck! has been taken to a whole new level.

EDIT:  What?  The Vikes converted a first down before the two-minute break?  Now that's crafty.  Keep hope burning just a little longer.  Someone should start a class action suit against these guys for sustained, multi-generational emotional abuse.

What will be the most outrageous choke?  I call an interception returned for 6.

What?!?  A made FG to take the lead with 1:29 to go.  Wow.  The heartache will be unbearable.

The Vikings are finally on the right side of a miracle finish?  I don't know what to think.  It's unprecedented territory.

Oz, you don't know REAL pain until you're a Lions fan! ::)  They OWNED the NFL a couple of decades before I moved to Michigan.  Now they not only are one of the very few to NEVER play in the Super Bowl, if memory serves they have NEVER made it out of the second round (and rarely out of the first).  And now the Browns have taken away our distinction of the only 0-16 team in history - we're no long even uniquely terrible! 8-)  We're just run-of-the-mill lousy. :P

I must confess that I, too, had lost faith. On to Philly.
