Same with the Vikings. I like the Vikings, despite my upbringing as a Los Angeles Rams fan back in the 70s, but the Vikings are a team that'll tear your heart out and stomp on it, and then charge you for caring. I get enough grief with UCLA football, it's hard to handle the Vikings and Bruins in the same football season.
I think the Gophers could be good, but they really need to make football a priority, and they don't. That, too, is very familiar to me.
