The way I look at it is this: I went to the U and love the Gophers. I never have and never will have any use for the Vikings or their fans. The Vikings provided an avenue for my University to destroy the tradition that every other Big Ten school's students and alumni can share together. It will take another 50 years to make up the time we've lost. The lack of loyalty this encouraged also makes it so a school with 50,000 students that is surrounded by 2 million people can't fill up a very nice, but small, replacement stadium because we have "too many sports options," with the Vikings being the primary distraction. They can't move soon enough.
So you can see why I don't share your opinion on the Vikings stadium.
Simply ridiculous. The Vikings ruined gopher football??? I have heard it all now.
