I said to myself "watch them blow this lead". They harnessed their inner Northwestern.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

It was a classic case of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  Horrible.

Don't forget to include Rutger's late collapse on an honorary basis when evaluating the B1G.
The trek to 0-8 has begun!

Greeaat! A few bowl wins in this conference is what we really needed to get some of the talking heads & writers to stop taking a never ending dump on how bad the B1G is, which in turn helps OSUs perceived strength in the near future..Thanks Minnesota! Just a friendly reminder that you guys suck! Enjoy your sucking!

I fell asleep with 1.50 left in the game, Minn up by a touchdown.  WTF.

I didn't expect the Goofers to win. I don't expect any Big Ten team to win a bowl game.

I figured Minnesota would get blown out by Texas Tech, so getting to blow a late lead is better than what I expected, I guess?  lol

Everybody sucks but us. All good.

It enragens me that a 6-6 Minnesota team with only 2 in-conference wins goes up against a middle-of-the-pack Texas Tech team with the pelts of TCU and WVU in a TTU home game and needs a last-minute miracle to steal victory away Goldie.
The Gophers were outmatched the entire time and may have even hung on if not for questionable last-minute play-calling. I would have preferred a blowout to not get my hopes up. This is why I should stop rooting for the Big Ten outside of OSU.

I gave up on cheering for the rest of the Big Ten a long time ago. If OSU's playing, I figure they're all rooting against the Buckeyes. 
The sucky thing is that if the conference is weak, OSU's viewed as weak because of them.

Well, that's my dilemma. I despise the rest of the conference and the fact that they hate us so much. That said, the B1G being weak hurts our national perception (both with the voters and computers) and makes it harder to get to the national championship.

Who the hell cares? We don't care about Minnesota all year and we're suddenly expected to care now? As if Minnesota losing to Texas Tech means anything to Ohio State? At all? Nonsense. It was a meaningless game. No one will ever care or remember that Minnesota lost to Texas Tech.
