Coaches Poll Week 13: Minnesota Gophers Enter Rankings At #22

A big time win means a return to more Top 25 rankings!

I have a lot to say about this weekend. I'm trying to keep my thoughts in order and set aside the excitement running through my veins, but then the Coaches Poll ranks Minnesota at #22 and I'm reminded of just how big a win this was for the Gophers and I go back to full "WOO HOO GOPHERS WIN!" in my brain. And you know what? I like that.

The Coaches Poll has been fond of Minnesota several times this year, but this is the first time it's truly felt like Minnesota went and took a place in the rankings. The win over Nebraska is hard to overlook and downplay, and I suspect the AP will agree with this ranking when they release their list in a few hours. Obviously we can expect the CFB Playoff committee to join in the fun on Tuesday, as they've already kept Minnesota ranked for 2 weeks in a row despite a loss.

It may be HATE WEEK already, but I'm going to bask in the glow of this win and all of it's joyfulness for one more afternoon. Join me friends!
