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?

In order.

NoDak....

St. Cloud ST.

Wisconsin.

And both Michigan and Michigan State!

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.

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.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
