Football Lands 3-Star Recruit

I missed this, so perhaps others did as well. Looks like the Gophers landed a 3-star WR from the state of Florida. He has offers from a bevy of MAC schools as well as Purdue, Cincinnati, and Iowa State. Apparently, he decommitted from Cincinnati earlier in the year. The guy isn't big, at 5'10" and 175 lbs. At that size, I wouldn't be surprised if he is converted to CB


Daily Gopher meet-up Southern Cal style

So who else is going to witness the Kill Era in person?  Doesn't that just have a nice ring to it?  The Kill Era?   I propose that we get a bunch of people together in LA reclaim what is rightfully...


What UCF teaches us about South Dakota

Texas to the Big 10?

Portland Pilots Preview

If you were out celebrating Thanksgiving and/or the Gophers triumph over Butler, you probably assumed our next opponent would be UCLA.  That assumption was vanquished by the Portland Pilots in...


12th Big 10 team

Good Story on Dan Monson

Here is a good story on our former basketball coach.  I don't think he gets enough credit for what he did for the program.  He came into virtually a no-win situation and made us a competitive team...



Is this, or is this not the week where we open up the Big 10 at home...against Wisconsin, no less?  I ask because the participation has been more lackluster than any other time this season.  Why...


A Possible Itinerary for In and Out of Towners Alike

My picks are always the best.  I will not argue about any of these places.  There are other good places, but I think these are the best of the lot that are close enough to the U and downtown. I...


All Metrodome Team

First, if this post was already done by someone, I apologize.  I've been rather AWOL lately due to some life changes (all good ones) and haven't had much time to read or post things. Secondly, I...

Gophers and College Basketball RPI

Latest Bracketology

(Bumped to the front page by PJS, because I was going to write the same thing, and now I don't have to!) According to Joe Lunardi over at the world wide leader, the Golden Gophers men's basketball...


Former Gopher Greg White

Former Gopher defensive end who has had a pretty good couple of years in the NFL since finally getting a chance last year has legally changed his name to Stylez G. White.  The name change is a...

One of my friends lives in Louisville, KY.  This past weekend he was taking an airplane tour of the city on one of those really small planes.  While on the runway, he noticed a jet that was parked...

Daily Gopher Live?

So the Gophers football team has an off week.  At least we have the void filled somewhat with a real Gophers hockey game against our redheaded stepchild rival (apologies redheads...

I can already feel a certain Star Tribune writer's spin on the Gophers victory Saturday afternoon. No, the Gophers did not play as well as they could have.  But what would you rather have; a well...


Should Liriano Start Tonight?

The way the rotation is set up, I think I would start Liriano tonight. Think about it like this: Liriano can go tonight on three days rest or against the Royals fully rested.  If he goes fully...
