Interesting Recruiting Minutia

As a member of different college SBN sites, I try to pass along information that I think each fanbase would appreciate when I get the chance. This is a timely and good read on some of the details coming into play for NSD. the numbers game as it pertains to schollys is a pretty interesting topic by itself and this talks to that a little bit.

Gopher's Up to 11 Seed in Bracketology

Largely on the basis of the win over Florida State and the stunning revelation that we are not required to lose against zone defenses, the Gophers have actually climbed into the tournament before we reach B1G play...again.

If he does that, I will admit forever on here that I am an idiot for naysaying his hire. You can throw me in whatever substitutes for an internet pillory these days (I'm guessing the CNN comment boards).
