The Minnesota Golden Gophers have dug to the bottom of their bag of tricks and found a pretty clever way to distract field goal kickers. The “Dramatic Gopher” YouTube video was quite the asset to the team this past Saturday. Yep, this one.
The school put the gopher video on the big screen when Wisconsin was kicking field goal attempts, and it actually worked. Jack Russell, the kicker for the Badgers, shanked a 36-yard field goal (he made his second, however). Minnesota also plans to use the video moving forward.
