Thoughts

  • It’s a solid list and I’m hard pressed to disagree strongly with any choice on there. I’m not saying there aren’t differing options available, just that on first glance it feels good.
  • Gopher Nation would like all of you to admit that Adam Weber is the best and that he was always right about this.

What would your Gophers All Century Team look like?

  • Would you make any big changes to what ESPN came up with?
  • Who do you think got snubbed?
  • Who shouldn’t have been added to the list?
