    I've Seen Enough

    So you're changing your criteria. You were talking personality before. Now you you want someone who has won at a lower level. We all want that.

    I've Seen Enough

    I have no idea if Saunders can coach or whether he'd be right for the U. But, to me, he is absolutely a PJ Fleck clone with a basketball in his hand. Energetic, charismatic, young ... and talks about culture.

    Sid: U averaged 10,675 fans per game last season in 16 games at Williams Arena. This season, it is averaging 9,888.

    I would argue that football attendance still wasn't great last year. Sure, when you play the two most important home games in 50 years, that helps the numbers. Yes, that's attributable to winning. But I'll wait to see attendance for the Tennessee Tech and BYU games in September and Purdue and...

    Basketball floor

    Agree that it's better in person than TV, but it really looks worse when the Gophers wear white uniforms. The gold uniforms pop against that brighter floor, and it all looks great. Just one of many reasons to wear gold more often. The new floor isn't perfect, but it's better than the old yellow...

    This is a little off topic, but does anyone remember what number Paul Giel wore?

    Spring Game date announced

    If it's a nice, warm day, it can be a lot of fun -- one of the first opportunities to be outside early in the spring. Sit outside, have a beer and tailgate. If you have kids, go down on the field and see the players. But if it's not a nice day, it's not much fun at all. A few years ago it was...

    The Mall of America Bowl

    General Mills tends to promote their cereal brands, rather than the corporate name (much like Kellogg's and the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl). But the Wheaties Cereal Bowl would be perfect. With all the stadiums going up around here lately, I can't believe Wheaties didn't make it in somewhere. The...

    Better to win bowl or go 7-5 and lose bowl?

    This reply makes me feel like I interpreted this question differently. I assume we'd all rather win the Rose Bowl than lose the Rose Bowl, even if that means an extra loss during the season. The question is: did we GET to the Rose Bowl? More wins in the regular season should result in a better...

    Bowl Game Ticket Dispersement

    It seems to me the answer is no. I'm seeing mostly people who have a Gopher Score but not at the top of the list. And, no, I'm not complaining (today) that my 23 years of Gopher basketball season tickets that I gave up don't count toward my score. :cautious:

    Official 2019 Recruiting Updates Thread: Links, Tweets, Videos, Stories, Rumors, etc.

    Uh-oh. Now we have to decide whether we continue to ridicule Brewster for this and do the same to Fleck or stop bringing up Brewster's helicopter as a punch line. Tough call. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk

    Is the Gopher fan base really that old?

    The Zulgad thread alluded to the Gopher fan base being gray, and I just heard him talk about it on the air. I've been hearing this since the 1980s. After having Gopher basketball season tickets for 23 years and football tickets for 10, I have to disagree. Yet, the media continues to throw it out...

    Baylor lawsuit alleges 52 rapes by football players in 4 years

    Haven't seen this posted here yet. "A Baylor University graduate who says she was raped by football players in 2013 sued the university Friday. Her lawsuit includes an allegation that 31 Baylor football players committed 52 acts of rape, including five gang rapes, between 2011 and 2014 -- an...
