Robert Griffin III was on his way to winning the Heisman
This GIF, courtesy of sbnation.com, is too good not to share. That’s Northwestern true freshman running back Solomon Vault on the bench Saturday in West Lafayette, Indiana, trying to quench his thirst. Only problem is, his helmet – err, facemask – kept getting in the way. Hey, at least Vault had his helmet on and was ready to go should his number be called. The coaching staff has to like that. Vault, who has 108 total yards and two rushing touchdowns on the season, did not compile any stats in Northwestern’s 38-14 victory, which put it one win from bowl

Minnesota is one win from playing in the Big Ten championship game. Let me type that again: Minnesota is one win from playing in the Big Ten championship. Those are words I didn’t think I ever would punch out on the keyboard of my company-issued EliteBook 844Op. But the amazing story of Minnesota’s program continues. The latest chapter of this tale was perhaps the best yet. No doubt, maybe years from now, we’ll look back on the Golden Gophers’ 28-24 win at Nebraska on Nov. 22, 2014, as the day Minnesota truly turned the corner in its ascent to becoming
