The Minnesota Gophers are starting to feel that respect we’ve all been looking for… except for Joey Galloway, who helps host the ESPN CFB Playoff Rankings release party every Tuesday, and believes the Gophers are UNDERRATED at their new #8 position in the College Football Playoff Rankings that were just released for this week, about 10 minutes ago.

This is another awesome moment for the Minnesota Gophers. It is crazy to think that one more victory could legitimately have us knocking on the door of the top-4… Even I am starting to be surprised at where this team is. And I’ve been leading the Fleck Rowers since the beginning. But, that’s where we are. And, who are we to doubt PJ Fleck, at this point? We haven’t won in Iowa for 20 years and that’s the exact type of negative statistic the Gopher Football team has been getting off of our back all year long.

As I’ve written and said many times over the last month, these rankings and polls will take care of themselves as long as we keep winning. It sure is getting fun to wait for their release though, isn’t it…
