This "game" is a farce...a joke! Admit this and stop pretending like it's some huge deal because it's not unless you are a hillbilly from winona or alexandra.

Airfare and hotel should be closer to $600, not $1,200 Creative Charter charges. Several planes would be filled if you offer a 2nd level plan.

No Surprise. Jerry Kill brings no excitement to Gopher football.

I was at the 2008 Insight Bowl and can tell you there were at least 10k Gopher fans there. Just because they didn't buy tickets from the U of M doesn't mean fans won't show up.

houston in december ain't paradise. seeing a 6-6 team play there isn't worth the trip. it's on TV. it's good for the program to simply be on national tv and have extra practice time.

All Big Ten teams are having a hard time selling tickets. Even the Rose Bowl is a tough sell.
