Minnesota was already feeling down in the dumps after losing to Wisconsin on Saturday for the 11th straight time.

Leave it to a rival to rub salt in the wound.

Very well done by Bucky Badger here -- he spotted an opportunity to razz a hated opponent with Goldy Gopher's Twitter Q&A and immediately leaped on it.

Unfortunately, Goldy Gopher never responded to Bucky, which is extremely disappointing. Yeah, Wisconsin won, but surely there's something Goldy could've countered with. After all, that's what rivalries are all about -- insulting your counterpart even when there may not be a basis for it.

Goldy did, however, respond to another mascot who was attempting to troll.

It's got to be enjoyable for Minnesota fans that their mascot is able to have fun with stuff like this. Only thing they'd enjoy more? Actually beating Wisconsin for the first time since 2003.
