PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Come on and rep the BIG!!
Just a little too physical for TT so far...let's see if they can keep it up
Defense fairly optional so far
Class of 2010.
I have no respect for TT watching the way they conduct themselves.

#52 for Minnesota needs to be taken out of the game.
B1G RUSHING ATTACK COMING AT YOU.
I think Jerry Kill is going to kill his players if they keep making stupid pentalties.
We support you Minnesota! Lets go, and take #52 out. He's blowing the game with his hot head!
Insert witty remark
2 straight 3 and outs. Lets hope the gophers can get the ball rolling and score another TD. If all Big 12 defenses are like this and their respectively B1G foe is playing inspired, Big Ten may go 3-0 vs. Big XII teams.
B12 defenses are rivaling P12 defenses as far as inability to respond to being punched in the mouth.
Big 12 Defenses will always be bad...
Never seen this happen before
TT player punches a MN player and get a 15 yard penalty
Then its revealed no TD and brings the ball out to the 15.5 yard line and access the penalty and not the .5 mark
False Start, hits the FG
Try FG again and blocked...
I think I'm the only one who cares about this game any more, sigh!
Helluva game for Goldy. I hope they pull it off!
All week long, Meyer preached to his team that he wouldn't pity Buffalo (4--8 in 2012). "I didn't schedule this game," he insisted. "I'm not going to feel bad for them."
That's a BS call his elbow was down?? Whatever! Go Gophers punch it in!
Because they wouldn't let me go for 3!

Why punch it in when you can throw it in. Nelson hasn't been punting in air in passes all game and doing things that hard way. So far its been working for the Gophers. Fingers cross they score here and put this game away. I haven't seen their defense play this good since they stomped Purdue.
The worst part of this game is that I realize that I've been mispronouncing Doege the whole season.
This would be pretty huge for the BIG as a conference if Minnesota won this game tonight. IMO it would already be a successful bowl season for the BIG being that every BIG team is an underdog in EVERY single game. If the Gophers win tonight, I think the BIG has a good shot at winning 4 games this bowl season. with MSU,Badgers,and NW getting W's
Minnesota's hanging in. Gotta give them credit so far, I didn't think they'd have a chance.
Holy shit what an awful pass...does Minny even lift?
TTU is 4-5 in the B12 and Minny is 2-6 lolz
Minny finds a way to lose looks like
Minnesota pulls a Minnesota
This is damn depressing. Outside of Ohio State I root from for Minnesota and Northwestern so #@$@ing hard. This is truly not fair and Minnesota deserved to win... DAMN!
Unreal. One if the worst displays of execution I've ever seen. What a shame.
"Have you earned your buckeye today?"
I'm sorry if I sound like I'm on my soap box here...
It's disgusting to me that a team like Texas Tech can call themselves "winners" after tonight. Minnesota gave that game to the Red Raiders.
Not to mention, this is a Minnesota team laying the floormat of the Big Ten vs. a middle-tier TTU squad. In a home game in Texas. I hate that the B1G is always scheduled in unfavorable bowls in hostile environments and when they don't exceed expectations, the media goes wild about how slow and bad we are.

Rutgers and Minnesota repping the big ten. I have feeling the rest won't be that close. Of course nw will take it to overtime and lose.
Rutgers would have only been repping the B1G had they won. They lost so they are considered Big East. Besides that is the conference they played in this season.
I have to say Minnesota acquitted itself pretty well, considering their opponent had home state advantage, and that the Gophers may have been the least qualified bowl team I have ever seen.
But to the rest of the country, it's just another B1G loss, sad to say.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
Acquitted on the charge of playing good football.
Minnesota being ....well Minnesota
I don't understand...I literally wanted to break my TV after that game. Why does the B1G do this every year? We get close or have the lead, and always blow it. And all we get is losses. Up seven with under two minutes left and you lose in regulation. Unbelievable.
It will be looked at as a loss no matter how close it was or if Minny should have won. They didn't and that is the end of that. The B1G doesn't disappoint. Started watching last 5 minutes and first thought was how Minny was going to lose this one. Funny how that was the first and the correct thought as it never seems to fail. And many B1G teams can be subbed in place of the particular one playing at he time. So very sad but true. Must get changed. Somehow.
Minnesota played two bowls down (how does a team with 2 B1G wins make a bowl game anyway?) against a TxT team with wins against TCU and WVU and almost wins it were it not for atrocious play-calling in the final minutes. Typical Big Ten... Why do I even bother rooting for our conference carpets anyway?
Because somehow people have made it so the play of the conference carpets reflects on us.
Just think, Minnesota was playing two spots higher than they should have been. If us and PSU would be playing this bowl season then Minny would be in a much easier bowl game.
All of these games are practically home games. Im not blaming that for the losses but why cant we have bowls in domes atleast like Minnesota, Indianapolis, or Detroit? Why do we have to travel so far to every bowl game?
Indy yes, Detroit Maybe but Minnesota no. A lot of it has to do with what is around the city and visiting the twin cities, I can tell you everything is a ride on the Light rail away from you wehre as other cities have things next to their stadium.
