Reusse: Nebraska's 84-13 romp put Gophers football in 30-year slump | Star Tribune

Minnesota’s decision to hire Joe Salem as the replacement for Cal Stoll wasn’t the news of the moment in Big Ten football

It's not that the Minnesota media takes a shot at the Gophers all the time, it's just whenever they bother to write about them. And it wasn't the 84-13 loss that took the toll from the Gophers. The final nail in that coffin was driven in when the Minnesota Vikings came to town.

Minnesota's last Rose Bowl appearance? 1962. Minnesota's last Big Ten Championship? 1967. The Minnesota Vikings first season? 1961.

Coincidence? I think not. This is a Vikings state. Whatever coach comes here has to know that, and it makes an uphill climb even more difficult when media like Reusse pound on the program whenever they can.

EDIT:

I think we need some fireworks this morning. Get the blood pumping for Minnesota. - SCS
