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.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
