The Rose Bowl missed out on their last chance to take Iowa in 2002. I have a hard time believing they pass them up again this time.
That said: vs. Notre Dame in the Fiesta? Would love to see that.

Exactly. Beat Ohio state. Go to Phoenix/Atlanta. A great season is still possible if we win the games in front of us.

Then what is the other side of the coin? How is that a two-sided solution? What is to be done other than "getting your shit together"? I don't follow the reasoning behind your yes answer.

if it has to be a huge effort on both sides, doesn't that mean doing things now to alleviate poverty and create the conditions for black advancement? Saying come back once you've met some sort of worthiness standard doesn't sound like a two sided solution to me.

You do bring up concerning statistics, but are they cultural issues? It seems to me that all three of the issues you brought up have more to do with lack of resources as opposed to any sort of cultural pattern.

So what you're saying is that the road to African American equality is to continue to work within the system that created the current situation and ignore mistreatment?

Yeah but in regards to the PATCO strike, a replacement plan was already in place. What kind of replacement plan is in place for 3/4 of the entire roster?

Can we put a sticky on the board regarding how tv start times are determined? It seems this question is eternally asked.

But have been on the green line for the Vikings. It will be packed, but I've never had to wait for the next train due to crowds. They also run about every 10 minutes, and will keep running until about 1am.
I plan to bargate not on campus, but either somewhere downtown (Jackson's Hole is official Michigan bar and is near the Hennepin Ave. Green line stop) or on Hennepin on the east side of the river (New Bohemia is as close to a tailgate as you can get in a bar - huge TVs, 30+ taps, and 15 different varieties of brats, in addition to other bar food).
As an alternative tailgate experience, I'd recommend doing some of the breweries in northeast minneapolis. You can walk between them, and they all have food trucks parked on site for food. Once you're ready to head towards TCF, an uber wouldn't be more than $10.

If you trust your defense, isn't that the reason to punt?

If you were there for the Michigan game, it was an 11am kick. It was also cold and relatively windy.

Temple vs. ND is in the ABC timeslot now. Which makes sense: Temple is in the top 25 for the first time in forever, and ABC nearly always puts ND on when it can.
As a MN resident and childless adult, I'm happy: standing outside at 10pm in late october is not and ideal situation around these parts.

BWW will be swamped as it always is. The dinkytown bars as well because its also holloween. Surly is walking/1 stop on the green line distance, but at any point on a saturday, will be relatively crowded.
As for the best microbrewery, I take Dangerous Man or Indeed any day over Surly.

The away ticket section at TCF is in the lower 200s. I got my tickets through the M ticket office in section 202.
That said, the stadium doesn't have a bad seat in the house and MN fans are not of the offensive type.
As for tailgating, your best bet is to get a parking pass from eBay or some other source. The St. Paul campus can be reached using the campus connector, but isn't that close to the stadium and is likely going to take some time to get to post game.

You are on the money. If you had told me preseason that we'd play state tough and lose by 4, I would have accepted it as progress.

Kick times beyond the first three weeks of the season and most B1G night games are usually decided around noon et the Monday 12 days before that Saturday's games. ABC/ESPN gets a certain number of 6 day holds per season (I believe 2) where they defer TV decisions to 6 days before kickoff.
Point being, we'll know either Monday or the following Sunday around noon.

I went in 2011 and sat in the north end zone. After every Matt McGloin touchdown the whole thing rocked back and forth. It was flat out terrifying.

I've had a samsung 47" LCD HDTV for the past few years and loved it. It's not heavy on the features, but the picture quality is great, and I've had no problems. It was about $750 in 2011 so I would assume its likely much less than that now.
But if I was buying today, I'd reach for a Samsung LED, as the contrast on those is excellent

It's gonna be a pleasant experience sitting on those bleachers in 25 degrees.

I'd heard these were to be worn for brooklyn games (New York Yankee Pinstripes), but Adidas didn't have them ready in time.
No link, just word I hear.
