Gopher Basketball Season Review 2013

Gopher Basketball fans, as I was searching around for some news for you, I realized there was no Gopher Basketball season reviews! So I checked the stats and gathered some up for you. Gophers, we had a great season with you. Thank you for all your attendance and support of the Gopher basketball games. Overall, the Gophers went 21-13, which I say, not too shabby! It was so great that the Gophers went 8-10 for Conference games. At home, they went 15-2, which made it for a crazy season for us at the Williams Arena. And as for away games, the Gophers went 3-8. And for games at a neutral location, the Gophers went 3-3. We had fun watching the Big Ten Tournament, where the Gophers lost to Illinois in a close game (51-49) and the NCAA Tournament where they won to UCLA (83-63) but then lost to Florida (78-64). Next season will sure be different and we can't wait to share the experience with you!

Go Gophers!

Here it is, Gopher football fans. Here are the details about the Gopher Football Spring Game 2013. The U of M football team will play its annual spring game at TCF Bank Stadium for the FIRST TIME this April 24th. That's coming up, fans!

TCF Stadium Address

Gopher football season is coming up, and we know you'll need to get to the stadium! TCF Stadium can be found at 2009 University Avenue Southeast Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455.

The 50,805 seat on-campus "horseshoe" style stadium is designed to support future expansion to seat up to 80,000 people, and it cost $303.3 million to build. Kind of pricey, but thank you TCF Bank for the generous  contribution!

Gophers Hire New Basketball Coach!

Read on, Gopher fans, if you want exciting Gopher Basketball news! Minnesota has reached an agreement with Florida International's Richard Pitino to be the Gophers' new coach. The school introduced Pitino at a news conference on Friday, and was greeted with a great response, I mean obviously. Richard Pitino is the son of NCAA coaching legend Rick Pitino.

Richard Pitino was with his father's team, the Louisville Cardinals, Sunday in Indianapolis and then went to see Kevin Ware with his father Monday in an Indianapolis hospital. Remember the guy who broke his leg?  We thought that was a nice gesture. He has the experience, but how will he do with our beloved Gophers? I personally can't wait to see how the season goes!

Yeah, I've heard people think he's attractive too!

Thank you, Senior Seth Helgeson

Seth Helgeson has had a great career in the MN Golden Gophers men's hockey team. He's from faribault, Minnesota and attended Faribault High School. He is 6'4'' and weighs 215 lbs. His birthday is October 8th. Thoughout the years as a Gopher, we noticed that Seth never put up a lot of points, but he made strong, crisp outlet passes and did a good job of getting the puck through traffic and towards the net. His style is not flashy, but it’s proven to be very effective so far him at the collegiate level. He also led the team in penalties and penalty minutes (oops) with 31 penalties and 70 penalty minutes his junior season.

We love that Seth Helgeson brought a different and unique set of skills to the table than many of the other defenseman in the system. We wish him the best of luck as he will turn pro for the 2013-14 season.

Gopher Roster will sure be Different Next Season

The Gophers roster is sure to look different next year including the fact that several seniors are graduating. Thank you for all your efforts Andre Ingram, Julian Welch, Rodney Williams, and Trevor Mbakwe. It was all of their final game as Golden Gophers.  Andre Ingram grabbed his 100th career rebound and point this season at Purdue and vs Penn State. Julian Welch scored his 600th career point vs. North Florida this season. Rodney Williams played his 100th career game last March. Trevor Mbakwe finished 10th on the Gophers' All-Time Rebounding Average list with a career average of 9.5 rpg.

Thank you to all the Gopher seniors for a great season!
