What a difference a week makes…

Last week, it was a sad time in the Sugg residence, with everyone losing. This week, the reverse is true – will except for the evil empire known as the Yankees.  The local Minnesota Golden Gophers pulled off a minor upset by downing the Michigan State Spartans – in spite of a record 17 penalties – an embarrassing number of which were personal fouls – Brewster’s gotta talk to those guys about discipline!  And wonder of wonders, the Duke football team surprised by winning their third straight ACC game against UVA.  Sorry about that, Cavalier fans, but that was really a pleasant surprise.  Tarheels next! Wait! What? Aren’t they supposed to play the Heels at the end of the season?  I knew I didn’t like the new ACC lineup….  One more win and the Blue Devils will be bowl eligible!  Who are those guys and where did David Cutcliffe come from.  (Well, I know, but that’s another story….)

Then Sunday the Vikings followed up with a win and season sweep against the arch-rival cheeseheads – I mean Packers.  Ah, basking in the glory…..

To focus more on the Gophers, they won Big Ten offensive AND defensive player of the week, with Adam Weber, the QB from Shoreview MN  throwing for over 400 yards, and Garrett Brown earning several tackles for loss and a forced fumble and recovery.  Wow.  Looks like they rebounded from the beatings by PSU and tOSU – let’s just hope they can keep it up.  Hopefully they will, with the next opponent being Brewster’s alma mater, Illinois.  Woo hoo!  I smell a bowl game in Minnesota’s future.

    And I thought you were sad because I was in Boston on Sunday…
