Continued: Reusse: Prep basketball, college football made 1960 wonderful

Anyone under that threshold could have heard of the Gophers’ upset of Iowa that fall and have checked the details, but there’s no way to appreciate it without having seen the manner in which Minnesotans greeted one another in the happy days that followed.

The Roman numerals IV, VIII, IX and XI insist that Minnesota has gone 0-for-4 in Super Bowls.

I dispute this. Gophers-Hawkeyes on Nov. 5, 1960, was the Super Bowl for Baby Boomers, and we won.

Minnesota might not have been big league in 1960, but Richie Olson’s Dutchmen and Murray Warmath’s Gophers had us living large.

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. • preusse@startribune.com
