Minnesota Football- Top 5's

New, 50 comments

So with GN's mandate to move on and never speak again of the Game That Shall Not Be Named (or GTSNBN if you will- and I will), let's shake things up with something I like to call Top 5's. Original title? No. Original idea? Probably not, but hey, it's Wednesday so I figured why not?

So here then are the Top 5...
