    This is a great idea, especially to use as a special event for alumni with no potentially no FBS games for a while.

    I am with you I would rather not drive 8 hours...But if it helps the program...OK

    When you play football, you gotta like the taste of blood, And 50 percent of the time, it's your blood.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    Another plus is if they're able to sell out Target Field that would probably catch the attention of the folks at US Bank stadium... and lead to potential opportunities down the road...

    On a somewhat related note I can't imagine this would make anyone at the Gopher athletic department overly giddy.

    Yes. It would have to count as an away game IMO.

    They have to have an opponent in mind. I wonder who it is.

    Meh--taxing the pure and local fanbase too much IMO. Don't like the idea at all. All you people who bitch about teammaker members need to realize that most of us don't have unlimited $$ to donate AND spend a shit ton on traveling to watch the team. Maybe I'm an outlier, but this does nothing for me other than I'll miss a game that I could and would otherwise attend.

    Target Field? Boooooo! For the sole reason of losing mojo rubbing off on our Bison.

    Target Field? Meh. Great for baseball but meh for football. Why not TCF or the Vikings Stadium?
    And it can't be against Delaware State or some schmuck team. Gotta give season ticket holders dibs too

    This is a great idea and needs to happen. Larsen is trying to capitalize on the momentum and I love that. The "giving up a home game" claim doesn't hold water. This will nearly sellout with Twin Cities alumni alone. Get a high caliber FCS opponent with name recognition like Sam Houston, Montana, etc. and this event will be a huge success.
