Feeling Minnesota

I was reading the Star Tribune’s write-up this morning about another Gophers loss (0-2-1) and I got to thinking how long before the Gopher faithful want to throw head coach Don Lucia under the bus?  For my amusement, I decided to check out the comments section of that very same article.  Holy cow!  Wow!  It sounds […]
