They're honoring the 1960 National Championship team today. It's been 50 years since Lucas, Hondo, Siegfried and crew absolutely torched the field on the way to the school's first and only title.

The stars and the Mark Titus of the '60 team1 -- a little known guy by the name of Robert Montgomery Knight -- stopped by practice on Saturday to give the team some pointers before proceeding to starstruckify The Villain at a banquet.

If the mere presence of this team today doesn't translate into a complete destruction of the Gophers, something is wrong.

  • 1 From a pure playing time perspective only. We're quite sure Knight didn't have a blog. Or an ultra-moist jump shot.
