Wilson retiring as Gophers cross-country coach; replacement named as Sarah Hesser

The University of Minnesota announced that Gary Wilson is retiring as the Gophers women’s cross country coach at the end of this 2012-13 season.
He will be replaced by Sarah Hesser, who is a a former Gophers runner and a current volunteer assistant on Wilson’s staff.
The Gophers have seen Wilson built his team into a national power during his 28 years as head coach. Minnesota had a streak of five consecutive top-12 NCAA finishes from 2005-09 and has qualified for the national meet each of the past seven years.
Wilson was previously the head coach of the women’s track team for 21 years; he has been an assistant on that staff since 2007.
As for the new girl, Hesser was a two-time cross country captain, senior track captain, and three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.

Good luck to both coaches!

Gopher Football 4-0

On Saturday night the Gophers beat Syracuse 17-10. Gophers looked strong in front of home crowd. And you don't want to miss MarQueis Gray and the entire Gopher team rock TCF Bank Stadium

It truly is a great time to be a gopher fan.

Minnesota Golden Gopher New Basketball Uniforms

The Minnesota Golden Gophers saw their football team debut new uniforms for the 2012 season, and it looks like the men's basketball team will also be getting new uniforms. 

Marcus Fuller of The Pioneer Press had a post talking about the new uniforms, though we weren't supposed to see them for awhile yet. But, as is often the case these days, a player happened to send out a tweet with an early picture.
This wweet, from sophomore Joe Coleman, has been deleted (as is also often the case these days) since then, but like all things on the Internet, full deletion is never likely. That is a pro AND a con of the internet. 
This U of M basketball player then followed it up with a tweet that read "Dang guess I can't do that." Haha Joe, you silly boy.


The new jerseys from Nike are using a mesh design that the company refers to as their "Aerographics design," which allows an almost-subtle image on the jerseys. In this case, it's the likeness of Williams Arena, the "M" and the year the University was established, "1851." Lookin' GOOD!

Do you think the Gophers have the budget for this change?

Minnesota Golden Gophers Football Season 2012

Gophers 44, New Hampshire 7

Surprised, Gopher fans? I know I am! After a horrible football season last year, it was great to see a win on the board.

MarQueis Gray, an easy gopher favorite, threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more by halftime, and Minnesota finally was able to enjoy an easy victory over an FCS-level opponent by beating New Hampshire 44-7 TODAY, which, coincidently, was the most points in a game by the Gophers in five years.

Any ideas why the change this year? Leave me a comment on my Minnesota Gopher Blog with your thoughts.

Great jobs, boys! Let's see you keep this action up!
