    Ski-U-Mah Lot question

    I noticed prior to the SDSU game that there was some construction-related equipment on the empty piece of land just east (or southeast) of the Ski-U-Mah Lot. Saturday it appeared that there was some type of site preparation work underway and a construction fence was set up on the east end of...

    Getting to know Central Michigan University

    Central Michigan University is located in Mt. Pleasant, MI. It appears to be located just about in the dead center of Michigan's lower peninsula, go figure. For the geographically challenged, the lower peninsula is the part that looks like a mitten, not Wisconsin's comb-over. The Chippewas...

    David Cobb activated

    David Cobb has been activated by the Titans and may make his NFL debut this weekend. He has been practicing for a few weeks, so there is some hope that he'll get carries right away. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000577710/article/titans-activate-rookie-david-cobb-waive-whitehurst

    Iowa Tickets

    It appears that the U has sold out its allotment for Iowa. Good news, except that I need four tickets. Anybody with extras hoping to see them go to Gopher fans?

    Preview of new gameday experience at TCF?

    I attended the Guinness International Champions Cup yesterday at TCF Bank Stadium. Seating area appeared to be a little over half full, with announced attendance of over 34,000. The sun was pretty intense for a large part of the first game and there were many people in the concourse taking...

    Berkley Edwards

    Anyone heard how Berkley Edwards is doing? I realize that he’s likely to redshirt, but I’m wondering if anyone knows if he’s fully recovered, practicing at 100%, running with the scout team, etc.?

    Is traffic congestion a real problem at TCF Bank Stadium?

    Part of the media conversation about attendance issues at TCF Bank Stadium has focused on traffic related complaints, e.g.“It’s gridlock,” “Traffic is a nightmare,” “It takes forever to get there,” etc. I have heard this or seen it from multiple media outlets, but I have never had a...

    SIAP, but I didn't recall seeing a destination here for Brent Singleton. He'll have two years remaining at Norfolk State, per the article below. Best of luck to him. http://hamptonroads.com/2012/01/nsu-football-spartans-bolster-defense-four-transfers

    According to today’s Star Tribune, the Vikings estimate that, if they are to play at TCF Bank Stadium, there will be $11M in required improvements to bring the Bank up to “National Football League standards,” plus another $19M in parking improvements. Other than the heating coils, anyone know...

    How will you (initially) evaluate the new hire?

    Whether this hire ultimately proves to be a good one or a bad one will be determined over a period of years, but like the media and most fans, I will form an initial assessment once the new guy is announced. Too often, teams seem to try to address the shortcomings of the last coach by hiring...

    Embracing the history of the program

    Whoever the next coach is, and whether he takes over five weeks from now or five years from now, I hope that he is as committed as Tim Brewster seems to be to learning and preaching the history of the program. I have been attending games regularly and following the program closely for 25 years...

    Scheduling Conflict

    Did this happen the way I remember it? 1) The Gophers need to or decide to schedule their first game of the 2010 season on the road so as not to conflict with the State Fair. 2) The best alternative they can find is a game at Middle Tennessee State. 3) The game is set for Thursday...
