Gopher Women Basketball

The Gophers are off to a good start in the preseason, I have been to both games and alot of people are saying they might actually be better than last year with McCarville.

Anyone else on here check out the team and have any thoughts on them?

Well yesterday afternoon they took out #9 ranked Stanford 84-77. With Natasha Williams getting the tournament MVP.

I was surprised to see they beat Stanford without Broback. I hope they're that good, I love watching them, so do my girls.

The way it looks it will be a different score leader almost every night. Seems like they are getting 5-7 players in double digits everynight. And I am not going out on the limb saying they have the best bench in the nation.

Well the 10 ranked Gophers lost in a blowout at New Mexico today. Hopefully they can bounce back and keep up the decent play.

What is going on with the program? They are leaving the program like rats leaving a sinking ship.

Yeah, it's a bummer so far with Davis, Lacey, Broback and now Podominick gone. Went to several of the games at the Barn the past few years and nothing was evident. Will have to check with one of my inside sources. My question is tho, has Brenda Freese become the U's female equivalent of Lou Hoax? wink.gif

I did read somewhere that Borden has one of the top ten recruiting classes coming in. The thought was that two maybe three of them would be immediate starters. Do you suppose someone saw the handwriting on the wall?

Could be. Lots of speculation at this point. Seems a little odd that the only people who are talking so far are the parents of the kids that are leaving. After the pummeling they gave Michigan at the Barn during Shannon Schoenrock Day, this team suddenly became a group of underachievers. They got throttled in games they should've been competitive in and barely beat teams they should've trounced. Was it a team leadership problem? Was it Borton's "abrasivenes"? Was it complacent play? About all my "sources" would say so far is there were a bunch of PO'ed women and from a guys standpoint, I know how much fun that is for all concerned. One is bad enough. smirk.gif

I have an inside scoop on what is up, and I will just leave it as a bunch of not so happy players lol.

Sounds like things will hopefully be looking up and the few players that didn't get much playing time last year will be able to show what they can do.

The girls who did leave had some pretty good reasons to leave in their own cases. Liz is an olypic talent in shot put. And some left to just get alittle more playing time. Hard when you have 16 players on a basketball team. I have 8 on a rec team and it is tough having everyone happy with the minutes.

Looks like all the turmoil surrounding the team in the spring didn't turn out to be a big deal after all. The girls are off to a great start at 6-2. Could just as well be 8-0 for that matter with two fairly close losses. You have to commend Kelly Roysland for finishing what she started and providing senior leadership for the underclassmen... Go Gophs!!!!

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.        
    • smurfy
      got mine done........for the cabin.....ready for summer festivities!!!!!!   there was still frost in the ground...........but good gawd are the lakes low!!!!!
    • CigarGuy

    • SkunkedAgain
      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay 
    • SkunkedAgain
      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
