Unfortunately, due to a myriad of circumstance including furniture, bad weather, shoveling out parked cars, and an office holiday party involving a fake Santa Claus with an Irish accent asking people to sit on his lap while making jokes, I don’t have time to preview what should be a fun game against NDSU. Thankfully, the other Gopher bloggers are up to the challenge. I’ll be back with a review and hopefully a few North Dakota jokes.

While I never liked Dan Monson when he coached the Gophers, his decision to schedule in state teams for exhibition games and smaller border schools in November and December was wonderful. Its great to have what may be the beginning of a few new rivalries.
