This might be the only weekend that the Gophers and Vikings win. Gophers won, Vikings won, Wisconsin lost, Iowa lost (again), Packers didn't win and Gopher Hockey swept. Good weekend for Minnesota sports for a change.
I don't want to look ahead or really think about other sports, today I just want to enjoy that we beat Iowa (again) on Saturday.
- We are moving on up in the Big Ten power rankings.
- Chip Scoggins writes about the fun that ensued at TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday.
- Vikings link...I am a huge believer that 3rd down conversions are an incredibly important stat. Christian Ponder on 3rd down passing situations has been incredible. This doesn't mean he is guaranteed to be the greatest quarterback in the history of football, but it leads me to believe that he can be pretty darn good.
- MN Daily has some quick notes from the win over Iowa.
- Doogie claims Kill and staff "widely outcoached Iowa" in the win on Saturday.
- I've heard the most popular Halloween costume in Iowa is an empty trophy case.
- Gopher Hockey swept Alaska-Anchorage over the weekend and they currently sit alone in 1st place of the WCHA standings.
