    Yes, it was cold but that didnít stop drunk guys from standing shirtless to watch the game. Those aluminum seats were brutal, since most people stood, even people with blankets or other forms of insulation had to stand.

    This is the only menís game Iíve witnessed since boycotting the menís game and their outrageous season ticket scheme since 2010. I said back then it will be a cold day in hell before I go to another of their games. It was.
    This might be the first time you have ever read this on here. You are correct! They were extra large tickets with the women's game listed on the left and the men's game on the right. I still have them. I thought we had gotten two sets of tickets with our two season ticket packages. Normally when the women play an early game and the men later we would give the men's tickets away. Last year was the first year in 30 years that I or previously my brother did not purchase the men's season tickets for some of the reasons you wrote, but mostly because my wife and I are old and we enjoy the women's games more than the men's.

    Gophers release their regular season schedule. After an exhibition game against the Minnesota Whitecaps they'll host Colgate on September 27th & 28th in what should be a very competitive and entertaining series.

    Olivia sounds great; I look forward to seeing her play.

    Just one quick piece of advice from a neutral observer: She may want to reconsider her "Favorite Animal" Choice.

    Here I thought she was going to say "Badger". At least she didn't say gopher, that would have been embarrassing. No one's favorite animal is a gopher, unless the gopher is one's dinner.

    Actually, the UM mascot is a 13-lined ground squirrel, so enjoying a gopher or two with fava beans and a fine chianti is no insult to a Minnesota fan.

    people in other areas of the country are probably surprised gophers are on your dinner table

    Hmmm, seems like Goldie has an identity crisis then. Squirrels have a lot more meat on them than gophers.

    Shirley you don't know Watt are you talking about. I think some of the next 6 years have a high probability of being crowless, though crow is also tasty with the 11 seasonings and spices. I'll take 3 out of the next 6 and be very happy.

    Hopefully Badgers don't turn it into the WCH.. EH! I heard Canadian Chicken tastes a bit more transferred during the shipping process.

    I bet you will, but eating 3 and letting your family fight over the remaining 3, isn't that kind of gluttonous??

    Supposedly, whoever created Goldy used a chipmunk instead of a gopher as a model. Personally, I'm okay with that, as gophers aren't much to look at.

    We will expect Tim to refer to the Gophers in the future as marmots, not rodents.

    "Minnesota led the Big Ten for the fourth-straight year with Academic All-Americans and once again finished as one of the most decorated schools in the nation. The Gophers finished third nationally in Academic All-Americans."

    (Congrats to Nicole Schammel for helping to make this possible!)
