Gophers Beat Illini Second Time Around

The Gophers men's basketball team made a statement in the final minutes of the Minnesota-Illinois basketball game - they are not the same team that they were in the Big Ten opener. The message was heard loud and clear by Illinois.

The Gophers showed their might by tying the score on a last-second three-point play and finishing off Illinois in overtime to grab their fourth victory in five games. The Gophers won 77-72 at Williams Arena.

Austin Hollins, with the Gophers down by three, drove to the basket, hitting the layup. The big error by Illinois came as Meyers Leonard fouled Hollins, who they hit the free throw to send the game into overtime.

Gophers Break Friday Night Curse

The Minnesota Gophers broke their Friday night losing streak with a win over St. Cloud State. The win will hopefully break the 'Friday night curse' forever.

The victory expanded Minnesota's lead over the Bulldogs, who tied 4-4 with Michigan Tech, in the WCHA race to three points.

The No. 3 rated Gophers came into this home-and-home series with the Huskies 1-5 on Fridays against their past six WCHA opponents.

Mark Alt is a Hottie

Checking out the roster of the University of Minnesota Gophers hockey team, I stumbled upon Mark Alt. Let me tell you, he is McYummy. At 6'3" and just over 200lbs, he is my ideal . Plus... a hometown boy! I like loyalty in a man.

Check out Mark Alt at the next Gopher hockey game!

New Gopher Football Uniforms

No matter how the Gophers football team performs next year, at least they will look good doing it. The Gophers football team will be unveiling their snazzy, newly-designed Nike gear at an event at TCF Bank Stadium in mid-Janary.

The Gophers have released a photo of their helmets, but not the uniforms. The new helmets feature a textured maroon finish, the Gophers' traditional block M helmet decal, black facemasks, black chinstraps, a block M above the facemask, each player's uniform number on the back of the helmet and the traditional Minnesota cheer "Ski-U-Mah" on the back of the helmet.
