  1. By my reckoning, if Gophers win 2 of next three (with one game against very bad Northwestern). They are in the Rose Bowl. I’m assuming they lose to OSU in B1G Championship.

    Also Guided by Voices playing a 100! song NYE set in L.A. So when Gophs get to Rose Bowl I’m going g to both. #winning.

    1. That's assuming Ohio St. beats Penn St. If Penn St. beats Ohio St. and goes to the B1G championship game and beats the Gophers, PSU might not get into the playoffs and could leave the Gophers out of the Rose Bowl. Also, the Gophers could lose the next 2 games and still win the division as long as they beat Wisconsin. Obviously, the Gophers should steamroll Northwestern, and I'm not sure the Rose Bowl is obligated to take the loser of the championship game if the winner goes to the playoffs. If the Gophers have 2 losses (and especially 3) and Ohio St. has only 1 loss, it's not hard to see them selecting Ohio St. over the Gophers.

  2. Yesterday's second victory: the jalapeño was exhausted after spending that many hours outdoors on his feet and cheering (apparently they hardly sat down at all), so he was asleep by 8:45 pm. I have mixed feelings about his enjoyment of football, but I can't help but appreciate anything that wears the kid out!

    1. Actually a pretty good story. He is one of us! (from Duluth) Went to DII Augustana in Sioux Falls. Went undrafted, spent a year on the practice squad transitioned from RB to FB and has been solid.
