Minnesota ended 50 years of frustration. Ohio State's may just be beginning. "It's almost unbelievable," Minnesota Coach Glen Mason said after his Golden Gophers beat No. 6-ranked Ohio State, 29-17, on Saturday. "After the game they said, 'Coach you're on top of the Big Ten.' I don't know if we can handle that. I mean, we are what we are." Minnesota's last win in Columbus was in 1949, with Ohio State winning the last 15 times the Gophers came to Ohio Stadium.

In fourteen hundred ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue He didn't get here first--that's wrong-- But left a weekend three days long. Those last two lines I made up. The first two I remember from school days, along with the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria and a painting of Christopher Columbus in puffy sleeves and tights.
