Rah! Rah! Rah! for Ski-U-Mah

8 posts in this topic

dang those Gophers are skating well so far...

Aside from that first period against U Maine, they have been playing with confidence. Those freshman are even better than I thought they would be. Okposo is a freight train, Barribal is doing better than his replacement Kessel, and Erik Johnson is holding down the fort in the rear. Wheeler, Goligoski and Vannelli have been playing outstanding as well.

Let's see what da bulldogs will bring to the Decc next weekend.... maybe little Lucia will be able to sneak one by Stalock? tongue.gif

I'm as big a Gopher puck rube as they come... I've gotta say these freshman are BIG and FAST! I'm way more impressed than I thought I'd be, now they'ree just going to get my expectations up and thats never any good. As good as Okposo and Barribal have been.. Erik Johnson hasn't really done alot for me yet... I guess the boys will be padding their stats next weekend against the doggies of Duluth. wink.gif

I've also been very impressed with Okposo. That kid was dynamite vs CC! Lucia has really cemented the team as the #1 recruiting school in the nation. That's good to see even if I'm not their #1 fan.

So far I'm surprised that the Goph's have started out so fast. Usually it takes them much longer to get rolling into play-off form. Of course they haven't played anyone yet besides the team they lost to.

I'll be at the DECC on Saturday, but rooting for the 'Dogs. Hoping that Briggs has the type of game that I know he can play tongue.gif

Anyone hear why he was suspended at the beginning of the year?

Where's Okposo been hiding? He was tough. What's happened to CC. They had their tails between their legs.

Duluth better hope their superstar goalie shows up or this will be over very quickly.

Gophers sweep 6-2 and 7-1

Hmm, super-star goalie. smile.gif

Well he does give me bouts of chest pain when he comes out of goal and loses the puck. The guy is nuts. I still think we should've given Ziegelman another chance this year.

Best the Bulldogs can hope for is a split with the way the Gophers are playing.

I'm pretty sure our boy Hauser is wearing a National Championship ring.... he was so solid when it mattered most... and thats how I'll remember him.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
