    Gopher Tailgating Gear

    One of my pet peeves when I had season tickets was how difficult it was to find Gopher-branded tailgate items/supplies. Was at Sam's Club in Maple Grove yesterday and was pretty impressed with the amount of Gopher stuff they had on display. Big U of M canopy, heavy-duty Gopher camp chairs...

    How did Gonzaga do it?

    So, I've been giving this some thought after Ben Johnson was hired. There have been the typical responses about it not mattering because nobody can win here anyway. Which brought me to Spokane as a shining example that anyone can basically win anywhere, given they have the right coaching staff...

    Gophers a 10 seed, will play #7 Louisville in Des Moines!

    Pretty decent draw for location. Should be a nice Gopher crowd.

    It's Whalen!

    Possibility of Oregon State Postponement?

    It's still a few days away, but apparently the air quality is so bad in Oregon right now due to wildfires that both Oregon and Oregon State are looking at alternatives: https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/minnesota-nebraska-games-could-change-hazardous-oregon-air-quality "Oregon and Oregon State...

    Colton Beebe

    When he signed, there was talk as to whether he'd be a DE or TE. The previous staff made him a fullback and that ended up working quite well. Is there any reason not to move him to DE? There's no depth there at all and this stupid spread offense has removed his primary position. Remember...

    2017 Night Games

    We're right around the time where ESPN and the BIG start announcing night games for the 2017 season (came out on May 9th last year), so I assume we'll hear about this any day now. I'd guess the most likely candidates for home night games would be Nebraska or MSU, road possibilities for Michigan...

    A ray of hope for the future

    Yeah, it sucks being a 5 seed and losing to a 12, but there's not much you can do about it. I am going to happily grasp at straws and look at the last two Big Ten teams that dropped their first round game to 12 seeds. Both teams finished 4th in the conference. Purdue was a 5 seed last year...

    Is Duke McGhee a dirty player?

    That's Barreiro's assertion, going so far as to say making him sit for one game isn't nearly enough. I can see his point. A couple of hits that essentially knocked the other team's best WR out of the game sure don't look good. In watching yesterday's play back several times, it's most...

    Gophers as favorites

    Maybe this says more about the program than anything else. Going back to 2009, the Gophers have been favored by more than a field goal only 4 times in conference games. In 2009, they were 7 point favorites at home vs. Illinois. They lost by 3. 2014, 4 point favorites at Illinois, lost by 3...

    ESPN's John Saunders dead at 61

    Yeah, yeah. Technically off topic, but he was a staple on ESPN's college football coverage for some time. I always enjoyed his style.

    Jerry Kill in Excelsior on Father's Day

    This isn't my church or an attempt to turn this into some sort of religious discussion, but this showed up on my Facebook wall, so I thought I'd share if anyone is in the West Metro on Sunday. Jerry Kill will be at Westwood Community Church in Excelsior on Sunday. I'm not sure if he's speaking...

    2015 College Football Preview magazines

    I know lots of folks hate them, but the preview issues are starting to hit the shelves. First one out is Athlon. They have the Gophers 3rd in the West, a game behind Wiscy and even with Nebraska at 8-4 (5-3). The projected bowl matchup is UCLA in San Francisco.
