Not too bad. First time I remember them getting the jug. Kill looks like he's putting it together.

Mason actually beat Michigan in 2005 as well, but it has definitely been rare.

Hmm I don't remember that. For the Brown Jug? I think even the announcers said it had been 25+years.

But its nice to see a solid Gopher team. Now if their basketball team follows suit, my faith in MN sports will be restored.

Yeah, definitely beat them under Mas - in the Big House too.

I remember that. Oh the good old days of Mason. :lol:

Man it'd be nice to have a QB who could complete even the easy passes. Whether it was Weber, or now Leidner, lack of a QB kills this team. Can they not identify them? Or is it just impossible for a team like the Gophers to recruit a good to great talent at that position?

Glad that it is just not the Vikings that are bad :wink:

Best to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than open it and remove all doubt.

Weber? He was maybe the best QB in history of our program. If we had that kind of offensive talent now we could in the running for a big ten title.

I'm sure they have no trouble identifying good QBs, it's just really, really difficult to convince them to go to the U of M. There aren't very many and we aren't a very prominent program.

What? Are you his mom?
He was a terrible QB. I Can't believe you think he was the best in the history of Minnesota football.

Yikes - I don't know who you think was much better? Cupito? Asad Abdul-Kaliq?

Well when you put it that way... but Weber wasn't the best. Cory Sauter was pretty good. Abdul Kaliq was ok.

Went to the Game today. Was in the Bathroom for the big run but otherwise it was a ton of fun. Can't Remember the last time I had any level of confidence about the Maroon and Gold!

No doubt!

Man, hopefully Kill keeps this up, and one of these years we can get a top Qb recruit, and put it all together! :thumbsup:

Someone hacked Demi's account again...

I like the direction of the team, and i will eat crow because I wanted Kill gone because of his health problems. But he seems to have that, and the team, under control.

Well, they blew it against a bad Illinois team. Must have been looking ahead?
