    Gopher softball 2023

    They did get ground down last year… that’s a great description for it. They did look completely exhausted week after week. Honestly, I am a “tough schedule” supporting person. For no other reason than that it is better for fan entertainment - which is what I think sports is, at very bottom...

    Gopher softball 2023

    My spirits are improved. It appears as though she was a very good player prior to her Freshman year at Duke. Now she will get the chance to play and play a lot.

    Gopher softball 2023

    Why is it that I believe Groenewagen and Fiser were not quite the same? It seems to me that Fiser was on a lot of college programs’ radar while Groenewagen was a true diamond in the rough that everyone missed except Minnesota. Is that true? As for Leavitt, I don’t know her personality backstory...

    Gopher softball 2023

    They will try Cox at catcher and Strelow at 2nd is my best guess. This Kinch loss really hurts.

    Uh, Eva Hudson has FOY locked up, doesn’t she?

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    3rd or 4th in the Big Ten; that’s a good team. Shaffmaster gets lots of wins for the program - just as I have long said. I don’t care even a little bit about national championship talk; but I do care that this program under Hugh has always put up lots of wins, given fans lots to cheer for, and...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    This is so completely true. I don’t understand why more Gopher volleyball fans don’t grasp this reality. A Gopher volleyball fan has better perspective of what is realistic and possible if they accept that history of why McCutchen is here and how lucky we are for that. That being said, I hope...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    There we go with the “national titles” thing again … as if that is a measure of a well-run Gopher volleyball program. Yeesh!

    STrib: McCutcheion's New Book May Give Insight into Job Change

    This post is right. The goal should be to win the maximum number of games possible without academic cheaters or rapists.

    Volleyball Recruiting - 2023

    The Sarah Wilhite years, especially her upper-classman years, were peak-Gopher volleyball fan years for me. I very much enjoyed watching her and her team play.

    All of those make sense.

    As a reminder, there are 344 ncaa volleyball teams. I wager that if you look at the last quarter century, the Gophers are in the top ten, maybe top 5, of all those ncaa teams in total wins. The Gopher volleyball program WINS, is a WINNING, program, and wins way disproportionately to what we...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    Is there uncertainty? McCutchen took what he determined to be a better job for him and his family - at our own University no less! We can’t really whine about that can we?

    Put an Anna Smrek and a Dana Rettke simultaneously on the Gophers roster and we will win a national title too. Winning national titles is heavily about luck. It is just a bad measure when evaluating who is a good volleyball program and who is a good volleyball coach.

    I trust your view of the matter. I think she is one helluva athlete though.

    Good selection committee position for a seven-loss team, for whatever it is worth. I like it. Go Gophers!

    This seems obviously true to me as well.

    It seems so obvious to me that the Gophers just need to get a really great, world-renowned volleyball coach who is normally way out of our league but will in fact take our job because they have a spouse who is having a baby and the spouse’s family is from Minnesota and can provide child care...
