Mr Craig, writing stories about green bushers is lame for a Minnesota newspaper. You are obviously either a closet packer fan or born in cheeseville. Real Vikings fan are pulling for the miners to thump the bushers, Seattle to embarrass them again or Atlanta to payback the seat kicking from earlier this year. Either way they will lose. And if by some miracle they make it past the NFC, the Pats will destroy them in a national showing just like Bama waxed NotreDame. That green bush defense will never make it.

Um, the "Green Bushers" play this weekend, the "Purple" does not. Maybe that's why he's writing about them.

Packers get so much favoritism it's sick. Only the replacement REFs didn't bend to the hype

Wisstinks judgement is clouded again. I don't see the Vikes playing this weekend at all. In fact, how long has it been since the Vikes won a Super Bowl or the Gophers won a Rose Bowl? Can't Remember. Nice article Mr. Craig. Go Pack!

Wisstinks also forgets that the Packers are the third most popular sports franchise in this market behind the Vikings and Twins, and there's room to move up! Saturday night's winner will likely represent the NFC in the SB this year. Go Pack Go!

Vikings 1: Wisc. has never one a national title in football. If the Gopher titles your talking about are from other sports, that's a different discussion. Wisc. football was an inept program until about 15 years ago. But comparing Gopher Football success to Badger Football success is not even an argument.

Rms316 - you're right, the Gophers have had more success than the badgers. 7 natl titles in 120 years vs 0 titles in 120 years. Rose Bowls appearances aren't national titles...nice try though, lol!

How many Minnesota Viking articles are there over in Green Bay? I've grown reeeeally tired of our local newspaper writing about our rivals.
