Looks to me that everyone is starting to get on a role and playing together again!

What you all think of the team this year?

So far so good. I agree that Kangas is a big key and needs to stay healthy. Luckily our defensemen haven't been trying to take his head off with their sticks like the Mankato guys... grin

They are playing well and Kangas definitely needs to stay healthy.

It was good to see them play well against another ranked team(UNH) last weekend. They have some tough weekends coming though. After this coming weekend against Mich Tech then they have Denver, Michigan and Michigan State and then CC. Should be some really exciting hockey!!

Go Gophs!!!

They played well tonight against Colorado!

Your all right, if Kangas stays healthy, there going to be a team that is going to be tough to beat!

I'm not picking them apart, I was stating the facts. Did you see the game yesterday? If you did there is no possible way you can say the Gophers played up to their ability. How about 2 weeks ago at the tourney. We got housed by Michigan, and then tied to a Mich State team that got beat by the badgers the night before. And the Badgers don't beat anybody like that. Evidentially the rest of the nation doesn't feel like the Gophers are deserving of #2, they got dropped to 4th.

It's going to be an interesting stretch here with Carman and Barriball returning from knee injuries and Schroeder, Hoeffel and Fairchild going off to the world juniors. Time to see who's going to rise to the top.

The Gopher's need to pick the intensity up a bit. They looked awfully sluggish yesterday and I was very disappointed in the way they played.

Kinda hard to play great hockey two nights against a good colorado college team....

who cares about ratings, they just got to keep winning games and take a game at a time, a series at a time instead of where theyre ranked.

Any team can beat any team, its not like Gophers are unbeatable...hey Holy Cross beat the Gophers in opening round of NCAA's two years ago, hard to believe but upsets happens and it was unforunate it was Gophers.

Gophs are and will be the most dominant team this year

They will be if they show up every game. This team seems to get lazy and reckless every now and then. If they play up to their ability they should be the team to beat. You know every team out there is pumped when they play us.

Just great! Another one of those nights when they show the game tape delayed so they can put the Timberwimps on. mad They'd be better off putting the T-p(oops) on tape delayed! grin

The Gophers have peaked in December once again. They have started to show some chinks in the armor, with some suspect games lately. I am not so sold on this team. A great November and a great December does not equal national championship. It doesn't even get you a McNaughton trophy.

I respect this gopher team but I am not ready to annoint them champs just yet. shocked

You guys know North Dakota is the best team ever! crazy I mean who could argue that? Right Redlake? I can't believe they are actually ranked 23rd! I mean two tight wins against a powerhouse Bemidji team last week... they ought to be a top three team right? be careful dissing the Sioux of Hakstol will flip you the bird!! laugh

At last check, the talent laden rodent team has a gigantic 4 point lead over the downtrodden Sioux. Hang on to your pin laden vest. You're really cooking now. wink

That Bemidji team would give the gophers fits if the chokers had the ba!!s to play them. You cake eaters can't pull on your maroon and gold turtle necks hard enough. I really hope you goofers go down this weekend. My fingers are crossed and hopefully Hack has his fingers in check also!

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
