Minnesota had a tougher year than I expected. But, the Big Ten was a solid conference last year from top to bottom. The top 4 teams all won their bowl games.
Still, I like their coach, his philosophy, the way Minnesota is trying to improve themselves, and the cojones to play outside – the new stadium looks fantanstic. It’ll become a tough place to play – On Campus – filled to the brim, visitors will have tougher time getting tix, making it a better home team experience, and the weather advantage – unless it’s as hot this Fall as it’s been this summer.
