Joy in Mudville

“Bring it over here. I want to finally see what that thing looks like.”

Glen Mason, football coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 10/07/05, in reference to the Little Brown Jug after Minnesota beat the Michigan Wolverines 23-20. Minnesota, despite its historically strong program (including six national championships, thank you), last beat Michigan in 1986. Mason became coach of the Gophers (currently ranked 22nd) in 1996.

Go Gophers.
