Are the Gophers Finally for Real?

13 posts in this topic

Hanging an overtime thriller with Michigan State then handing the L to 15th ranked Purdue in a big time OT win.

 

Do you think the Gophers have a chance at a National top 25 ranking this year?

Hope so.  I wont believe it until they make the Final Four though.  It would be nice to see after all the turmoil the last few years at the U.

They look the part.  No situation has look to big for these guys.  It is still really early in the big 10 season.  Time will tell.

Wow, they take care of Northwestern in their house and 15th ranked Purdue in theri house. Losing only to Michigan State by 1 point. The only more surprising team in the Big Ten would be Nebraska having beaten Indiana and Maryland. Currently leading Iowa in OT.

Not sure how this team seems to have turn things around?  They seem to just know how to fight and win.  I am sure tbey will take their lumps this year, but i think this team will end up high in the big ten.

Wow, now they beat Ohio State handily.

 

The Gophers are tied for 1st place in the Big Ten. Looking good.

Do you have any idea how the Gophers are beating these usually tough teams...and almost taking it from Michigan State as well?

So far, they are playing solid defense, and not taking many, fast, out of offense shots.

Thier depth seems nice as well, we dont lose a whole lot during substitutions.  Somehow we seem to have become a well rounded team!

We will see how the youth holds up over the course.

Mason, Lynch, and Coffey are fun players to watch, and each bring something different to the table.

Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.

They just need to learn how to win those kind of games. They could have easily won it.

Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
