    Looking back and a little foward: Whalen years

    I thought that I would take a stab at a look at the Whalen coaching years and all the things that have worked against Whalen and the Gophers. Admittedly, some are on Whalen, but much of it was outside her control. Great talent makes a coach look much better, and lesser talent probably more...

It looks like it began in November 2015 and Iggy was earliest to start a thread. Some time before...

    Home Attendance Watch

    The other interesting part of the Whalen hire will be impact on attendance. For reference: Non-Conference for 2016-17 was 21,292 with average of 2,662 per game. Conference was 30,072, average 3,759. Non-Conference 2017-18 was 18,169, average of 2,5956 (one less game) and Conference at...
