We grew up in Big 9 country where every conference game was a test with maybe exception of Albert Lea. Same with Gophers and B1G. The defense will hold up enough and Carolinas defense is terrible.A childhood (Rochester kids) buddy and I are staying with a 3rd Rochester guy who lives walking distance from the stadium. No specifics yet but I am sure that we will be on Franklin Street and drinking both Friday and Sat nights. The more I read about UNC the more uneasy about the game I become. Everyone knows that their QB is supposed to be some hot stuff, so our defense will be in for a nasty test. I'm glad that this is not the 1st game of the season. Go Gophers!
