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.

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.

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
