A bowl game, pirate fest, and a music fest each happening over the course of a few months.I had to look up what the bleep Gasperilla means. A Pirate Fest? Sounds fun.

The bowl used to be played at the trop. It’s very sad for me that it no longer is.
Those double-features were great sports memories growing up. I’m in St. Pete now too, but I’ve only gone to one Rays vs Twins games at the trop since moving down here. It was a bit nostalgic for me watching the Twins play in a sterile dome.I wish it was still at the Trop too. I live in St Pete and it would bring back so many memories of my time at the U...walking to the Dome from my home and sitting inside a baseball stadium to watch the Gophers. Could probably get front row goal line seats just like old times.
If only the Rays were still playing in December, we could go really retro and do a 90s-style double-feature with the Gophers and a scrappy MLB club that punches above its weight only to crap out every year against the Yankees.
Also Gasparilla Bowl is playing it way too mainstream for the

Gasperilla is Tampa Bay's version of Mardi Gras except with pirate ships. Pretty much just a good excuse to get hammered!I had to look up what the bleep Gasperilla means. A Pirate Fest? Sounds fun.
Has anyone in the history of college football media ever picked the Gophers to be better than the prior year? When they at least went to a bowl that season?
Can yah get a sassparilla at the Gasparilla?Not a lot of faith in the Gophers from Boomer. Gasparilla isn't even an affiliated bowl with the Big Ten so I think he's got us 5th in the Big Ten West ahead of only Illinois and Northwestern and the last pick of all Big Ten bowl eligible teams. https://collegefootballnews.com/bow...es-affiliations-for-each-conference-2023-2024
I was thinking the same thing. I think I will have one as we speak.Can yah get a sassparilla at the Gasparilla?
I think you are onto something with the "it"Clearly, Big Game Boomer (whoever the hell she, she or it may be) has/have never heard of the Greek Rifle.
But they are obviously quite familiar with miracle workers like Matt Rhule and Luke Fickell.
In 2020 a bunch of people did. But then we shit the bedAnd has anyone in national college football media ever predicted us to be better than Nebraska?

Yeah, I saw the tie-in thing as well...it is the Way too early pick so I guess we can give them a pass.Way-Too-Uninformed Bowl Projections. Gaspirilla Bowl (at least it's in Tampa) shows 10 different conference affiliations on its website. The Big Ten is not one of them. So, kind of a weird pick.
My feeling is that we've done the Guaranteed Rate, Pinstripe and Quick Lane bowls recently. Time for us to climb the ladder a rung: This year we get Las Vegas or Reliaquest Bowl. Of course, if we get our ears boxed early by Nebraska (opener) and UNC (game 3), my confidence will be eroded.
Why’s that?2020 was COVID. Describing the season that the Gopher football team and staff cobbled together that year as "shitting the bed" is beyond absurd. And your use of "we" is laughable.
