    Nice addition to the Gopher women’s golf team

    Great to see! In the past, too many good in-state golfers have left the state.

    Tough Recruiting right now

    At the risk of throwing a curve into the discussion, I grew up a scrawny white kid in a very white NW suburb of Minneapolis in the late 60's-early 70's. I was certainly nothing to fear. That said, before I started to drive, my uncle, who was a Minneapolis detective, gave me some excellent...

    To recap, the following 7 Gophers have put their name in the Transfer Portal

    And if Pitino coaches and recruits the same way he did at Minnesota, he we achieve the overall same results that got him fired here.

    New Transfer Commit: Luke Loewe from W&M

    Since much of playing successful defense is attitude and effort, I'll take him and his three point numbers. Improving/changing the team's attitude is a big part of what needs to happen as well, and both commits seem fit that bill as well.

    Next Gopher Head Coach

    My daughter went to Baylor and while it is definitely a Christian school (Baptist affiliation) it is definitely not hyper-religious. For some students yes, for many, no.

    Unfortunately, Coach Pitino's overall record is not nearly good enough in my opinion. Marginal incremental improvement is the reality over his tenure. A higher standard of performance must and should be expected. As well, no excuses either as all programs deal with transfers, injuries, etc. In...

    U cuts men's tennis, gymnastics and track and field

    One example of skill level difference is the U.S. Women's World Champion soccer team lost to a Boy's U15 team from Texas 5-2. Another is the U.S. Women's hockey team losing 1-0 to Warroad H.S (with no checking) a several years ago. Sorry, but the physical skill level is not close.

    Men's Track, Men's Tennis, and Men's Gymnastics Apparently being cut

    Will the demise of Men's track and field essentially cause the elimination of men's cross country because most cross country runners do track as well? If so, would they then need to eliminate a woman's sport to meet Title IX requirements? Just wondering...

    Wake Forest to display emblems, ‘Black Lives Matter’ on helmets this season

    For the sake of this argument, black lives matter. On a national level Black Lives Matter as an organization strongly shows a Marxist/Communist bent. Read enough of their positions on their national/international website and that will be evident to you; providing you've read Marx and Lenin. In...

    Iowa to discontinue four sports programs

    This may mean the loss of men's gymnastics as a Big Ten sport as I believe they were close to the minimum number of participating teams to be a sanctioned, if that's the right word, sport.

    Iowa to discontinue four sports programs

    That is many more men's scholarships lost than women's scholarships. We're they not Title IX compliant?

    Notre Dame and North Carolina COVID Outbreaks - When Does ACC Cancel Season

    Thanks for your comments. I said unlikely to be developed and I hold to that position. I hope we do develop a highly effective vaccine, and yes the world scientific community is working diligently to create one. Unfortunately, I don't expect a miracle type of "cure" anytime soon. I believe that...
