Gopher Football Pre-Season Honors

According to the Goal Line Club as I type this there are 3 days, 23 hours, 25 minutes, 5 seconds, and an undeterminable amount of milliseconds until the Gopher football season kicks off. For those of us non-math majors the Gophers play Thursday evening against the University of Tulsa starting at 9:15 pm CDT. The game will be shown on ESPN2.

ESPN.com has the Gophers picked for 7th place tie in the Big Ten this year. The Gophers do have a tough schedule. They lose Illinois and Northwestern and get Ohio State and Purdue.

But as I posted before, I start every season believing we will win the Big Ten title.
