Three Overtimes

Really Gophers? You can't make life eay on yourselves. Instead you have to take the Runnin' Rebels of UNLV into three overtimes before dipensing of them. What does this mean in the grand scheme of your game. Are you going to be good this year or mediocre and best? Is there a bowl bid in your near future or the toilet bowl?

Let's hope you make a better showing against New Hampshire on Saturday September 8th. I suppose it didn't help that you played the game at 10 PM Central and out in the Vegas desert. Who really was able to stay up late on a work night and watch that three overtime game.

On to more important things. I really like the College Football overtime format better than the pro football format. It gives both teams a chance to have the ball in overtime and control their own destiny. In the pros if the first team scores too bad for the loser they should have done better on the coin flip. Put the fate and the game on line in the hands of a coin, just doesn't really make sense to me. I would love to see the pros change their overtime format. I believe they have slightly for playoff games but not the regular season. Go all the way and change that format. I am not sure if the college format is suitable for the pros but something different would be nice.

Congrats Gophers on a win. I hope to see many more of those this year from you.
