Minnesota Football: Mitch Leidner's Rushing Prowess Could Pay Off

Rather than dwell on the struggles of the passing game (there will be plenty of time for that) I'm taking a moment this Friday to appreciate the joys of Mitch's running game.

IT'S ALL A NOWRTHUN CONSPIRACUHHHHH AGEENST US PAAAWWWWLLLLLLL. Kill all but says Delany and Alvarez are in collusion to gerrymander the B1G into CFB Playoff. We'll see if the benevolent overlords tell Jerry to pipe down by saddling Minnesota with Ohio State/Penn State/Michigan State/Michigan on the schedule in perpetuity.
