Treasure any road win, no matter who it's against (unless it's against a non-DI'er like Concordia-St. Paul). A week or two ago Washington opened the season on the road at perennial WCC bottom-feeder Portland & lost. Last night Iowa State hit the road to play a bad Hawaii team & lost. I'm happy the Gophers won their only true road game of the nonconference schedule -- there's no such thing as an ugly road win -- and am hoping they can do the same with their only neutral-site game.
A let-down game. They were probably too pumped to play us, and then couldn't get up for a DII school. It's not that big of a deal for us. If we had lost that game, though, this would look really really ugly.
