We are officially within a week of game day! This is really exciting stuff. And this... is your Daily Nugz.
Retired Stillwater head football coach George Thole prognosticates on the upcoming Gopher season. I'll say this: I hope he's right.
"In conclusion, SI and Lindy's Sports be damned. I see the Gophers going 7-6 with the Insight Bowl
- Blah, blah, blah Dwight Dasher. Blah, blah, blah Oliver Donnell. Blah, blah, blah Colin Boss. Stolen checks this, gambling debts that... the MTSU QB is still in hot water.
- Hey everyone, Kent Youngblood wrote about the Gophers! Nice. Youngblood has a nice article about 1960 championship Gopher squad.
On Sunday Dave Revsine, of the BTN, tweeted this:
On bus heading to UW - final stop! I leave MN thinking they have the clearest identity they have under Brew - they know who they want to be.
He doesn't say what their identity is, just that he feels like they have one. After seeing this I started to write an entire post on what Revsine was talking about, but I just ended up rambling on and on and I never could come to a conclusion of what their identity is, so I decided to spare you my bumbling.
- Fringe Bowl Team Blog has their fall camp breakdown of the offense.
- Lastly, Adam Rittenberg of ESPN's Big Ten Blog, was on ESPN1500 with Reusse & Mackey on Wednesday (go to August 25th, Hour 2). They talk Big Ten realignment, N'Western players being affectionate with each other, Adam Weber, the possibility that Wisconsin is overrated, and Reusse even says that he can't believe the Gophs are going to be as horrible this season as the national media thinks... which is about as close to a compliment as we can expect Pat to pay the Gophers.
