I am most upset that I missed seeing MarQueis Gray in action. He is going to be a fine Gopher football player.
I really really really really want to go to opening day at TCF Bank Stadium – Gophers vs. Air Force is going to be amazing - - Any one have any ticket hints?
Oh yeah – I think they are announcing the Gopher football captain for next year today – I am betting it will be Adam Weber again – he’s a good leader.

The weather for Saturday doesn’t look too promising – 70% chance of rain. I wonder what the rain-out plan will be. This is a free event and Gopher fans normally flock to the event.
During the maroon and gold scrimmage, the pep band, cheerleaders and Goldy Gopher will be present to rile up the crowd. Free mini footballs will be given away and there will be a 30-minute player autograph session following the game.
Can someone get me some autographs, please????? I would like Eric Decker, Adam Weber or just about anybody would be fine!
I can’t go –boo hoo! So if any readers out there want to be super helpful, an autograph would be nice as would a couple of pictures from the event (Cortney, are you reading this?!?!)
OMG - I read this stat about the Gopher Football team today:
The Gophers haven't finished higher than fourth place in the conference since 1986, when they tied for third. In the past 12 seasons — 10 under Mason — the Gophers are 72-74 in conference games.

There is plenty going on in the world of Gopher Sports – i.e. Gopher Baseball, Gopher Gymnastics and ??? But I really only care about Football, Hockey and Basketball so my gopher sports sphere is pretty quiet today. If you care about those other Gopher sports, you will have to find a different website to fill you in.
Gopher Gal is getting geared up for the Gopher Spring Game on Saturday Arpil 25th at St Thomas. GOOO GOPHERS!
Have a website you want to recommend ? COMMENT ME!

Kevin Payton and Travis Busch will not be with the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers next season. Both are juniors for the basketball team, but are academically seniors and will graduate in the spring.
Busch told the media that he was leaving because he wouldn't be offered a University of Minnesota scholarship next school year. I am sure it’s just a numbers game, but I have to say I will miss Travis Busch. I hope Tubby is doing the right thing – I gotta have faith that he is, but time will tell!

So far, I think the defense is coming on strong, but the offense will need some extra work (no surprise there) . . . but I am just getting that from the Gopher web site - oh wait, maybe they don’t allow the press at the spring practices (I think I read that somewhere once) – that would explain the lack of coverage.
SAVE THE DATE: Gopher Spring Game APRIL 25th outside at St Thomas University…be there! It’s free and it’s a great time to celebrate the maroon and gold. I hope they have Gopher gear for sale!

Stop all the hating Gopher fans and embrace Royce White – you will be glad you did.
Royce White of Hopkins was named Minnesota's 2009 Mr. Basketball. Royce White, the 6-foot-8 Hopkins forward will play at the University of Minnesota next year.
