gophers rivarly

26 posts in this topic

I have a question for all you Gopher fans. It seems that Minnesota is the biggest draw on the road. They have big rivaries with just about every WCHA team. What series do you look forward to every year?

North Dakota by far for me.

Then Wisconsin and Michigan (I still get sick when I see that Mike Legg goal).

After that I would say the other Minnesota D1 schools depending on who has the hot team that year.

I still remember watching that goal on tv. I think the refs should have called travelling on that one. I don't know if it's the best goal in college hockey, but it's definitely up there as one of the craziest. Amazing.

North Dakota is the top rival by far. (All started after being at the Holy Cross game.....I don't wanna talk about it)

Wisconsin is next.

Then probably all three of the Minnesota teams in the WCHA.

St. Cloud State.

(I live here, but it is a huge rivalry here because the schools are so close to each other. A LOT of gopher fans show up here and the crowds get pretty rowdy.)

North Dakota first as their roster is usually Minnesota kids and Canadians. Wisconsin second and everybody else just wants to be there rival.

No Dak, the population doubles when the gophers come to town. Then the huskies and Wisconsin.

You wanna talk "Easy Dealings"...refuting your logic, now that's "Easy Dealings"! Overall record between the 2 programs?

Hmmm?

Where is Beltrami county again?

Just for fun I did an internet search for Beltrami County and this picture came up. Apparently this is entertainment at its finest in Beltrami County. Hey Red Lake, how excited would you "Beltramis" get if we gave you an old tire to push around? grin

Hey now wait a minute...in defense of where Red resides(I can't believe I just typed that)I was once a resident of beautiful Beltrami County and would move back there if things worked out like that! It is an absolutely fantastic place to be if you are into the outdoors! So Red, I stand corrected from earlier thoughts, I bet that's something you and I can both agree on? Even though that picture is funny as heck!

Hey now. This is a beautiful place. Take nothing away from pushing a tire around. There are plenty of people around here who do that. Quite a few "brush apes" who live in trailor houses with jacked up 4x4 under the lean-to.

I love the photo. I hope that isn't anyone I know. That would suck.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
