Gophers vs. Hawkeyes 2014




The hottest selling Gopher ticket currently is the game in which Gophers take on the Iowa Hawkeyes and battle for the Floyd of Rosedale.

This should come as no surprise to Gopher fans, because as many can attest to -- this is one of the fiercest rivalries in all of College Football.

Also the trophy is awesome.

If you’re having trouble finding tickets for the game on November 8th, I know of this place here that can help you out.

Meet Head Coach Jerry Kill


Jerry Kill is the 31st University of Minnesota football head coach. Entering his fourth season at the helm this year, the former Northern Illinois head coach has a career record of 144-91.

At first beginning his coaching career at Football programs below NCAA Division I rankings, Kill found himself coaching Division I ball for the first time when he coached the Northern Illinois Huskies. Still only a MAC school, now the head coach for the Gophers who are in the Big 10, Kill finally has found himself in a BCS Conference.  

Kill became the head coach of the Gophers on December 7th 2010. Ahead of him was a program that, following the tumultuous Tim Brewster era, needed rebuilding. Following a first season of growing pains, Kill has coached the Gophers to two consecutive bowl game appearances. And last year, his third with the team, he coached the team to an 8 win season – the team’s first 8 win season in over a decade.  

With the steady improvement Kill has brought to the program under his tenure, spirits are high for the up coming season.

Former Gopher Glen Perkins Selected to Second Straight All-Star Game


The former Gopher  and current Twins pitcher was selected to his second consecutive All-Star game this year, and while I'm sure he is thrilled about the achievement, something tells me Mr. Perkins is more excited about this year's game (especially over last years) since it is being played in his home state of Minnesota.

Perkins is the seventh Golden Gopher to make an MLB All-Star Game, and is only the third Gopher to make more than one appearance.

While at the U, Perkins was a two time All-American.
