Anyone know what the longest conversion has been in college/pros? The longest I can remember is in the mid twenties.
Meineke car care bowl thread
Supposedly, according to a few sites, at the collegiate level, the longest ever converted was 3rd and 77 back in the 1930s in a game between Navy and Arkansas. As for the pros, I don't remember how long ago, but I think the Broncos once converted on 3rd and almost 40.
Minnesota is beating themselves.
Wasn't that a horrible call on Minny though? I was away and came back, and I don't have the volume on so I may have missed something, but the replay looked like offsetting extracurriculars.
Well you have to give it to them. Nobody in the stadium could have possibly predicted run in a 3rd and 49 situation.
Still did anybody see Minnesota only being down 7 at the half?
Right now but I was penciling in a Tech touchdown before the half.
Kudos to the Minn D for resisting even if the offense gets it in.
Gotcha. That was probably a smart prediction.
The punt was the cherry on the top of that series
It's bad when your punt doesn't pass the 1st down marker. Of course, in this situation you'd need Will H. to boom one to get it there.
punt did not even get close to the first down marker. awesome

Must be another record. Poor Jerry.
But, what's his record when he's down by 3 at half in a high-scoring game? Methinks a lot of that record is when he was down my multiple touchdowns. Not really on point tonight regardless of what happens in the last minute. Dumb.
I can say with confidence that "now a national research university" will never appear in a B1G ad.
Guns up halol
Apologies if this is too political, but of the 11 airports where TSA confiscated the most guns trying to go through security (I imagine all of them were of the "I forgot it was on me" variety), 5 of them are in Texas. Atlanta had the most fwiw.
In yo FACE, Tay-hass!!! ATL 4EVA.
than the 2 rocket/gernade launchers LA police collected during their gun buyback program? Money quote: “This is not that unusual…`we’ve had them in the past.’”
Maurice Clarett was in town?
A kick return TD, brutal penalty call, and a 4th and 6 have TT up by 7, but the Gophers look to be a match for them so far.
Two fullbacks and a running back. Jerry Kill knows a little something about MANBALL.
HE HAD HIM!
Minnesota's scripts/fonts bother me. Their take on the "M" always makes me think of Mad Magazine and the jersey numbers are all kinds of jacked up.
And I'm still not sure their uniforms will look worse than Michigan's on Tuesday.
But they look like a decent team so far in the second half...GO, GOOPHERS (as long as it's not hockey)!
Personally, I think it's funny that we've laid such a firm claim on the block M that Minnesota won't dare use it.
Loving Minnesotas Man Ball!!
wow that sounded wrong
Texas Tech's team.
Big Tehhhnn! Go Minny!
HUGE defensive stand by Minnesota.
This game is a lot closer than I think many thought would be! I'm not sure what the line is but in the Yahoo Bowl Pick 'Em I'm in more than 90% of people thought Tech would win. So much for the wisdom of crowds if they can pull this out!
Tech by 12.5-13. It was one of the biggest spreads of the season.
Since when has Minnesota known how to play football?
Texas Tech is continuing the Big 12's tradition of not playing defense.
shockingly, i believe they have the most big ten titles behind michigan and osu. but considering they used to be a major player in the conference.....
Replay had been awful this year. How do they overturn that?
That broke the plane.
could be so much fun?
Why do teams try over and over to run between the tackles at the goal line? I get dominating people but the edge is sometimes very open and teams don't really seem too interested in running the outside zone...Just wondering?
Outside run plays take longer to develop. You need to be able to hold your blocks for a longer amount of time than you do for a run right up the gut, and that can be tough against a goal line D.
At this point I think I'm just going to root for Minnesota since I never expected them to even compete. GO BIG TEN!
I don't think Tech is playing anything close to their best football, but Minny is still all over the field. If they play like this next year, they'll win a lot more than 2 Big Ten games.
ALSO: Minnesota has some hot Cheerleaders.
"Keep on cheering through the up skirt shot"?
Minnesota's offense in conference play this year was at the bottom with Sparty. They scored 13 against us, 13 against Iowa, 13 against Northwestern, 13 against Wisconsin, 10 against MSU, 14 against Nebraska and 17 against Illinois.
Their only impressive game was scoring 44 against Purdue. (And I seem to recall folks here getting nervous when they saw how much Minny put up against the boilers.)
Now the Gophers look unstoppable on offense. Who is coaching Tech's D? Gerg?
IT AIN'T INTRAMURALS!!!
