WOW!!! What an amazing game.  What an effort by this team to never give up.  What a great season and what a way to open the new Alerus Center with a National Championship!

Yes, congrats to the Football team.  I only caught the touchdown at the end of the third quarter and then the entire fourth quarter.  Talk about exciting.  I wanted to beat some of the receivers silly for dropping many of those passes, but the team came through in the end.  Great year.

Yeah, some of those dropped passes throughout the game scared me (not to mention the punts and field goal attempts).  I suppose the wet weather had something to do with it, but we came through in the end.

That 4th down play on the final TD drive was nerve-racking (not to mention the last 10 secs of defense).

GVS's kick off return to the Sioux's 30 yardline with 18 seconds left was pretty scary.  Thank gawd for that holding penalty or we would have probably at least seen overtime.

What an exciting game.  Both teams played well, and yet gave the other team chances to win.  Fortunately the Lakers were killed by penalties, and made the more egregious mistakes.

Coach Lennon is a class act, from what I see of him.  Met him once at a golf tournament.  Didn't even know who he was and he talked with me like a regular Joe.  So is Roger Thomas.  They both deserve this victory, as well as the guys, IMHO.

Just wanted to extend my congrats to the team on their win this last weekend.  Will this spill over to the hockey to give them a boost??

Did anybody tape the game?  I thought I had but wound up with 3 1/2 hours of static because my VCR wasn't set to the right "band" of channels. If someone hasa tape, could they copy it for meor lend it to me for same?  I live in Grand Forks.   Happy to pay for the service.

Professor Riendeau???

Seriously, out of all of this talented group of seniors, I believe that Riendeau will be the toughest to replace.  One of the best cover guys the Sioux have had.

YaneA,

I taped both the semifinal and championship games.  You can certainly borrow my tape if you like and record them.  I haven't gotten a chance to watch them yet, but it sounds like ESPN missed the first part of the championship game due to a basketball game.  Let me know if you want to borrow the tape.

Thanks.  I will take you up on the offer.  I'm going on a long vavation starting tomorrow but you can leave the tape with my assistant,

Eileen and she'll copy it for me.  Drop it by my office--room 106, O'Kelly.  Thanks so much.
