Now showing on BTN

In case you like a good trip down memory lane, BTN is showing the NU-Minnesota game shootout from 2007, which finished in a 49-48, 2OT thriller of a victory for the 'Cats. At the time, I was a high schooler in Minnesota with a moderate interest in Northwestern for school and a passion for all things Golden Gophers. This was one of the final straws for me and Tim Brewster, a relationship that would be broken dissolved nuked to hell after the Gophers lost to D I-AA North Dakota State the following week (with an embarrassed me in attendance). 

Regardless, this game was an absolute thriller for me; at the time, I stood by Brewster's decision to go for 2 in overtime. These days, hindsight being 20-20, GO FIGHT TRY Brewster's decision just makes me chuckle. But in a series which for me includes watching Victory Right on the couch with my Gophers diehard father, being at the 2004 curbstomping of NU, and deciding after the '08 Northwestern victory at the Dome that I could stand being an NU fan, this game too holds special memories. 

Go 'Cats, we beat the Gophers!
