at the barn with under 6:25 to go. If this holds, it makes our win look even better. On ESPN2

Oh brother.  If Minny holds on and wins this might the first time one of these "hey guys...something awesome is about to happen" threads actually turned out ok.  Seems like they ALWAYS end badly for some reason.

I've been hesitant to give Minny too much credit (maybe it's their punchable coach) but they may just be legit.

BTW, what exactly is the purpose of the raised floor?  Is it for sightlines?

Ohio is dropping like a rock. Also what does it say about us compared to MSU if they went to OT against these two teams and we beat Minnesota in regulation without McGary and Robinson iii?

My god. Even when looking into the eyes of defeat, Aaron Craft continues to just amaze me. He just competes. I've never seen someone take an inbounds pass like that and dribble the ball with such determination.

Remember this gentleman: when we are all old, telling our children and grandchildren of days past, we can proudly say "we lived in the era of Aaron Craft."

I loved his comment so much that I upvoted your comment about loving his comment.

Reminds me of a story. My dad and I were talking during one of 1st UM games and when Jordan Morgan's name was announced for whatever play, my dad, a sparty, started going on about how this was Morgan's 17th year/been there forever sort of rant. So apparently, someone out there thinks the same about Morgan.

It's definitely a compliment.

You and me both, buddy.

If I have a firstborn boy, I'll name him Aaron Craft. If it's a girl, I'll name her Erin Kraft. Any additional child I bring into this earth shall bear the name of Aaron Craft's greatest of traits, beginning with "Grit," "Hustle," "Determination," "Defense," and my youngest, "Handcheck."

But to be fair - Novak really deserved that reputation.  Dude was a 6'4" PF who had to work his ass off not to get pushed around in the post every night.  And honestly, Craft deserves it too - he's a pest defensively.

Now to be sure, there are plenty of white guys who automatically get labeled "gym rats" or "coach's dreams" with no justification, but these two legitimately fulfill the stereotype.

This was expected IMO they were not looking very good winning in ridiculous fashion but to b fair the gophers r legit that win at Minnesota is looking better and better
