I suspect it is like a visiting team coming to the Metodome, only the team is made up of college kids. Whatever happens I believe I have seen improvement in basic skills since Kill has become the coach.

If the Gophers are content with being bowl eligible by beating 4 pre-conference patsies and two of the most dysfunctional teams in the Big 10, then get prepared to get stomped on by Nebraska and Michigan State. Keep the Nebraska outcome close and beat Michigan State and they'll prove they truly are a bowl quality team.

I've been there. Gopher fans will love it. Go early. Downtown Lincoln is great. People will be really friendly and want to talk. Tell them about the gopher n.c. They'll start talking about devaney in the early 60's. Tell them you hate Wisconsin, but love Barry Alvarez . The fans will stay till the bitter end, and applaud the gopher team on the way out off the field. Win or lose. No kidding. Then after, you can dissect the game with them at a local bar or eatery. Get a steak at Misty's. Or go to old haymarket for cool establishments. Fun roadtrip!

I spent some time in Omaha. True, not much else going on in the area, but the people are very decent. I still keep in touch with my former neighbors. We spent many mornings sharing coffee and chat together.
