  1. I just happen to work with this young man on his College recruitment video while he was in High School. All I can say is he is a great kid with a solid head and well grounded young man. Good Luck Nick!

  2. The university of Minnesota is renowned for their football. Year after year they are ranked number one in both the AP polls and the coaches poll. This can only increase the likelihood of the Vikings Offseason super bowl win, for this, the 57th year in a row.

    (but one would think maybe they’d spend the money on an offensive line that wasn’t so offensive)

  3. Well, employing a person to professionally hold players accountable during practices is sensible.
    Having a team captain, or leader, completely melt down, dismiss their teammates, & publicly put them on blast describing a “piss poor” effort ruins the team concept.

    Well if I can take a page out of the packer fan history book. The Minnesota Gophers have won 7 National Championships while the mighty Wisconsin badgers have won zero. Sounds kinda dumb doesn’t it?

  5. Nope. You should celebrate that heritage. This guy had nothing to do with those, though. Just like the Vikings, he has no idea what winning a championship takes.

    Actually it sounds accurate. I don’t know why recounting actual facts would be considered dumb. Is it because it doesn’t work with the narrative you would like to push?
