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.

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.
