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.

    • The buck in the picture is from private land not far from Duluth.  Not much ag land in the area.  The propertyI'm hunting has a lot of apple trees and thats what he's after in this picture.  Not a lot of oaks/acorns from what I can see, not sure what all the other properties have for food.  This is my first year hunting this land so my scouting hasn't been super extensive yet.
    • It wll depend some on farmland buck or northwoods brush eating buck. 1.5 easy, 2.5 fairly easy, 3.5 and older a much tougher buck to age. Used to send our jaws to Madelia,MN for aging and or we were lucky at the old Gene's Standard gas station in New York Mills MN as in the 80's and early 90's there was a guy from the DNR there aging them for us, the drawback was if you wanted to headmount they seemed to cut up the cheek to check the teeth or tooth that like a ring on a tree told him the age. I'd guess 4.5 year old in the picture but does mild winters and genetics play a part, I'd think so.
    • I thought perhaps the scans might have revealed that the tumor was inoperable before the surgery.   Apparently that was not the case.  It sure is a tough way to go.   You have my sympathy.   Watching her sister was very hard on my wife.  It was bad for me, but much harder for her.   The sister had two college age kids at the time as well.   New locations for the cancer kept showing up, in her case all in the bones.  
    • I'll have to look into those.  So far I've just used LED lanterns, but I end up bringing them home and leaving them. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.  I'm just poking around looking for ideas on my own build.  rl_sd built a nice one!  Where do you find formed aluminum like that?  All I've seen available are the flat sheets.
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I used a mix of 14 and 16 gauge 1x1 on my last house.  I used 14 gauge in the corners and V as well as the studs holding up the bunks.  That probably wasn't necessary. I wouldn't mind using 2x1, but doesn't that cover up the entire outer tube on the frame?  What supports your plywood floor around the edges? I know exactly what you mean with the galvanizing being worth it.  We build park equipment and always recommend galvanizing over any other finish for the durability.
    • They make so many small LED lights these days you can get a brighter light that runs on 2 or 4 AA batteries and last a whole season. That's what made the biggest difference for me. I agree you need a coming and going light and another for by the bed.  
    • Hi Del, she did so many PET, MRI, CAT and other tests.  When they got in the surgeon said that the tumor was peanut shaped from lower thru the mid and starting to get into the upper lobe.  At that point no other cancer was seen on tests.  It was after the treatments that it had spread throughout and we figured that it was in her brain at the time she went to hospice house.  It is a tough cancer and painful.  Thanks for your thoughts.  Jeff
    • Last I talked with Tebben they weren't galvanizing frames.  That may have changed in the last few months. Regardless of manufacturer, galvanizing is a substantial up-charge, but worth it ($600-1,000).  No coating any manufacturer is currently doing last more than a couple years.  Paint, powder coating, and bed liner are all going to end up rusty in a very short time.    Don't use 14 gauge for your studs.  Use 16 or less, if you can find it.  1x1 is probably fine, but I've not seen it used.  You'll get a lot more strength from something rectangular shaped, but added strength may not be necessary.  1x1 will already be stronger than any wood stud.     Edit to add: I know nothing about the manufacturer page you cited, but their prices are in line with all the other hydraulic frame manufacturers.  
    • I always thought it would be nice to have the interior lights 12 volt, just so you don't have to fire up a generator every time you walk in to flick on the lights. That's the mistake I made in my backwoods cabin was running everything in a way that I had to start the generator just to see at night!
    • How do you guys estimate the age of bucks you see in the field?  Anything special you look for as a clear giveaway?  Young bucks normally aren't too tough but once they get to 3 1/2 it can be a little tougher. Here is the big guy from my trail cam this year.  We can use it for discussion purposes.  I've got a guess on age but lets here what you guys think for age and what is the giveaway for you.  Also you can't see both sides of the rack in this picture but he's fairly symmetrical however he's missing a point on the other side making him a 9.  I do have other pictures of him but not digital ones.
