How about them Gophers

10 posts in this topic

6-1, great turn around.

There defence by far has them a way better team this year. Wille Van was defencive player of the week. Great to see a local kid from Silver Lake get that.

I hope they keep playing well, and get that awesome bowl this year.

Makes you think last year was a fluke in terms of how bad you were. But having been a long time Gopher fan I know the instant I have a glimmer of hope for them, they'll find a way to blow it.

I'm starting to believe Brewster is the real deal. I like how he has this team playing and believing in themselves. Bottom line is that we're much improved from last year and that's all that matters. Go Gophs!

I think I was much more optimistic than most people by thinking this team was cabable of winning their non-conference games and one Big Ten game for a total of five wins. But what they've done so far this year is down right amazing.

One thing I like with Brewster is that he gets involved during the game. He's talking to the players, he's working with them as they come off the field, he's firing them up, etc. I think that portion of coaching is still pretty important at the college level, and you see most of the good college coaches doing it. Mason never talked to his players during the game.

I'm pretty excited to see the improvements this year. It will be real interesting to see who Brewster brings in with the 2009 recruiting class especially with the big improvements this year and the new stadium about ready to open.

talking to a IOwa State fan,,, (the Gophers and ISU have been virtually mirror images the last 7-8 years) he was asking how the Gophers are recruiting for the new outdoor field. Good question. I know most of the games in MN during the Big Ten schedule are nothing to worry about weatherwise, but not being in a dome for the last weeks of OCt and the games of NOV has to be different,,, wonder how this works for getting those southern kids. It works at OSU and other northern Big 10 teams, but MN can be and usually is different weatherwise come late season in the Big 10. Anybody know if this is even a valid topic???

Good question. Wisconsin and Michigan can get almost as cold in November, but haven't had issues recruiting. So I would say the November weather shouldn't be that much of an issue. Brewster was able to pull in some Texas kids for '08 despite the open air stadium. I think his main lure has been a fair opportunity to play immediately as a freshman.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
