Gopher vs Syracuse in the Texas Bowl

The Gophers played Syracuse in the the Texas football Bowl this past weekend, but struggled to get that last win.


The game started out a little slow, but three touchdowns in the fourth quarter made the Texas Bowl one of the most exciting games of the weekend. The Golden Gopher football team had more than a few chances to put the game away but just couldn't do it.

However, we want to look on the bright side and think it's great that this is a team that won at least eight games for the first time since 2003. Even with this disappointing loss (that was the sixth straight bowl loss), this was still a successful season with great games and fantastic fans who love their Gophers!

Thanks for another awesome football season, Gopher fans! See you next year, BIGGER and BETTER!

Gopher Football Update

It was another great Saturday afternoon for the Minnesota Gopher football team. The boys are killing it on the field and fans are loving every second of the action.

TCF Bank Stadium was packed with Gopher fans who were loving every second of the Gopher Lions rivalry. David Cobb was a huge asset to the team as he carried 27 times for 139 yards and a had a killer touchdown. Minnesota was able to hold Penn State scoreless over the final 33-plus minutes to grind out a 24-10 victory. This was the fourth win in a row for the Golden Gophers football team. Fans are loving the action since the Gophers haven't had this many victories since going 10-3 in 2003!

What's up next for the Gophers? The Gophers vs. Badger football game.... duh! The Gophers are 8-2. The Badgers, on the other hand are 7-2. With this boarder rivalry and the similar skill level, the game is bound to be a great one. This is the last chance to see the Gopher football team at home this season and this blogger wants to be a part of all the action. 


Can't Touch This!

Gopher Boston College Hockey Weekend

It was another fantastic college hockey weekend as the Gophers played Boston College on Friday and Saturday. Friday nights game was a fun one to watch as the Gophers jumped in front early and took a 2-0 lead less than five monutes into the game. That got the fans attention right away! Friday nights game ended with a tie 3-3.

I was in attendence on the Sunday afternoon game when the Gophers played Boston College again, but this time with better results as the game ended with a 6-1 win. The Gopher hockey team built a 4 goal lead right away in the first period. Forwards Nate Condon and Seth Ambroz led the Gophers with a goal and assist apiece, with Condon going away with the MVP. The Gopher hockey team is stepping up on the ice and playing their game and fans are loving it!

I loved every second of the game and our seats were perfect! We sat in the cornor by the students and our seats were on the glass! We saw all 6 goals on that side of the ice. Take a peek at my picture below. I really would recommend those seats to anyone looking to go to a Gopher hockey game!

Minnesota Gophers football team beats New Mexico State 44-22

The Minnesota Gophers football team appears to be firing on all cylinders to start the 2013 season. The Gophers beat New Mexico State in New Mexico on Saturday 44-21. Many Gopher fans remember when the New Mexico State Aggies upset the Gophers 2 seasons ago - well if the Gophers were playing with a chip on their shoulder, I hope they play that way all season long! It was the second week in a row that the Gophers had a pair of return touchdowns and our Gopher running backs were playing physical, just the way I like em! Hey, Gopher fans - we are UNDEFEATED - Ha! Go Gophers!

Gophers vs UNLV 2013 Season Opener Game Review

TCF Stadium was too crazy for the Gopher UNLV game! Did you make it to the game? The Gophers gave it their all. The season opener went off without a hitch and the Gophers won 51-23. The most memorable moment of the game was when Minnesota used a 98-yard kickoff return and a 51-yard return of a blocked field goal during the third quarter. This helped them get to a 51-23 victory at TCF Bank Stadium. And we couldn't be more thrilled with the win.

However, the statistics tell a much closer story. So let me give them to you. The Rebels outgained Minnesota 419-320 and gained 21 first downs to 17 by the Gophers. However, our Gophers balanced out the differences by racking up 303 yards in returns.

Will the rest of the 2013 season be as competitive? The only way you'll know is if you get to a game! Remember, the UNLV game was a non-conference game. Did you make it to the first game of the season? The best way to be a fan is to get to games.

Gopher Football Season Opener August 2013

Who is getting pumped for tomorrow night?! Although it's a bit odd to have a football game this early in the fall (Summer?), students, alumni and Minnesota Gopher fans are getting ready for the first Gopher football game of the season. Freshman (who will graduate in 2017, how old does that make you feel?!) are all moved in. What better Welcome Week event than to head to the first Gopher game of the season?

We found this hilarious picture on the Gopher's twitter: Would your boss accept this excuse note? If they are a Gopher fan, they should!
