Gopher Hockey players

I see that I didn’t list my favorite Gopher Hockey Players like I did for Gopher Basketball so I thought I better give the shout out to my two favorite Gopher Hockey players as well. #1 Alex Kangas, of course. Besides , I always have a soft spot for goalies (all my love, Rich). #2 Mike Hoeffel, that boy can shoot.

Gopher Hockey WCHA Tournament

Some of the best college hockey ever was at the WCHA tournament including the Gopher vs Minnesota State Mankato Mavericks series that led up to the tournament. I was at the edge of my seat watching all the close games and the overtime was enough to leave Gopher Gal sleep deprived. If you weren’t a gopher hockey fan before, you should be now because that was as intense as I have seen the Gophers.

Gopher Basketball season ends at 20 wins

The Gopher mens basketball team had a solid season considering the previous year statistics that haunted them throughout the year. The Gophers had an 11 win turnaround and ended the season 20-14. The 11 game improvement was the biggest in University of Minnesota history. Some of Gopher Gals favorite gopher mens basketball players: Blake Hoffarber and Al Nolen.

Next year should be just as exciting with a few returning faces and then Tubby Smiths new recruits. Word on the street is that the Gopher basketball roster will be one of the tallest in the Big Ten.

Gopher Gal, Where are you?

I can’t believe it has been so long since I have posted in my Gopher Blog. I am sure the 10 readers (max) that I had before have given up on me, but I haven’t given up on myself. I still have a real passion for the University of Minnesota and the Golden Gophers and I will try to make a pact to post more often about my beloved Gophers. There is always a lot going on with Gopher Athletics, whether it is Gopher Basketball, Gopher Football or Gopher Hockey, there is always a lot to talk about! Go gophers!
