The Capital Times (Madison): UW's Joe Krabbenhoft comes mighty close to coming off as just a tad too cocky. Aside from that, a typical preview that gushes over Minnesota's pressure defense.
CSTV: Straight forward preview.

Gopher Nation: Tom is having problems being confident in the Gophers.

That game sucked, to say the least.

I wanted soooooo bad for Bucky to play well and win by double digits so that I could descend from the high road with a vengeance. Oh well, 1 out of 2 ain't bad as long as it's 'win by double digits'. That second half was ugly on both ends and somewhat took away from what should have been a big border battle win. Both sides realize that the days of the Badgers totally dominating this series are near the end. Any chance Orlando moves on to bigger and better things? I hear Gillespie might be available soon.

Yes, Alex, it did. And that's why I haven't written a recap yet. I'm not sure I have anything good to say.

LB, don't be so sure. As much as Bo Ryan is highly annoying, it's going to take the Gophers some time to reach the level of consistent excellence the Badgers have maintained.

Remembered the first time I played the game and bought Lineage 2 gold , it is about two years. Since the first day I bought Lineage gold , we should know that the day will come sooner or later. And I will not leave my Lineage money . My friends forever, even though I will leave you one day, I will remember you forever. At that time, I was a naive; I must used money to have Lineage 2 money , as that I would not depend on myself. But I was not regret to buy it. It is just a way bring me to the success.
