WCCO has a story on how the U of M Marching Band is dedicating the 2014 season to a member who was recently killed while riding his motorcycle by a distracted driver on August 14th, just two weeks ago. Redwood Falls Gazette article (http://www.redwoodfallsgazette.com/article/20140820/News/140829875) gives more detail.

Official 2014 Gopher Soccer Intro Video

Now I see why the Gophers played the University of North Dakota in an exhibition game; it was so they could shoot an intro video! Too bad ELR Stadium doesn't have a video score board. Maybe next year, the Sports Pavilion got theirs this year. Nice Video.

Free Admission!

1

I've never been to a Gopher Soccer game before but plan to go to a few this year. When? This Friday, FRIday, FRIDAY!!!!! Why, because the season kicks off with free admission on Friday, 08/15/2014 at 7:00 pm when the Gopher's take on the redacted from North Dakota. FYI - I'm working on a fanpost primer for both Volleyball & Soccer. As I wrote in a fanshot, the first Gopher Soccer game of the season in tomorrow (Friday) night at 7:00 pm. Admission is free to this game but most games are $5 ($4 for senior, child or student). The games take place near the Saint Paul campus at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium (1745 Cleveland Ave N, St Paul, MN 55108)
