Ric Flair weighs in on Minnesota's big win: 'I couldn't be prouder of you'
One particularly memorable alumni shared some love for Minnesota following the big win over Penn State!
Many people know the name Ric Flair. However, not many people may realize that the former professional wrestler is actually an alumnus of Minnesota.
After Saturday’s big win over the No. 4 team in the country, Flair took to Twitter with a message for the Gophers. He said he couldn’t be prouder of the team and warned Penn State and the AP not to doubt the team again.
Of course, someone may want to inform Flair that the AP actually had Minnesota ranked four spots higher than the CFP Committee did. But we’ll let someone else be the one to tell him that.
Here’s Flair’s tweet to the team:
So Proud Of My Alma Mater And All My Friends That Played At @GopherFootball. I Never Played A Down, But I Couldn’t Be Prouder Of You. @PennStateFball And The @AP, Don’t Ever Question The Naitch Again!!! WOOOOO! pic.twitter.com/C4Ljx7ruSq

For the Gophers, they must still be on high alert moving forward. Minnesota must make the trek into Iowa City next weekend, a place where the Hawkeyes are known to upset plenty of teams throughout the years.
