I don't know about you all, but I'm still enjoying the news from today. I'm really not sure I could come up with a better bowl setup for the Gophers. The Missouri Tigers will not be a pushover, but I'm of the opinion that Minnesota matches up better with them than other options. The fact that they get to play this match-up in the best bowl available to Minnesota is simply a bonus.
Groundbreaking #TAKES there, I know. But I'm not capable of extremely deep analysis right now. I'm content to share my off the cuff thoughts and then turn it over to Big Ten Coach of the Year Jerry Kill. Here's the video of his press availability earlier today:
Earth shattering responses? Naw, that's not Coach Kill's style. But he's quick to acknowledge the importance of the game.
Kill: "I get enough emails from fans that ‘Hey, we need to get to Florida.' We got to Florida. Now we’ve certainly got to do our part."— Marcus R. Fuller (@GophersNow) December 8, 2014
I'm looking forward to this one and I think Coach Kill is too! Happy bowl selection day everyone!
