I originally wrote this last Thanksgiving. My fiance thought I should resurrect it for today. She is in charge of the sweet potatoes today, which includes, of course, marshmallow distribution. Needless to say, this is a small sacrifice to make, infinitely smaller than giving up marshmallows on the sweet potatoes. Luckily, everything that I wrote [...]

This article is part one of our season review. Beginning with individual players and ultimately covering the progress of the team as a whole and the best and worst games of the year, we will dissect the season in just enough detail to provide that basketball fix that can never quite be satisfied during the [...]

Get rid of your expectations and enjoy the ride. Trying to figure out how the Gophers will play on any given night will just give you a headache, and any Gopher fan will want to be pain and distraction free from what will surely be the most exciting last three Big Ten games that the [...]

So, you may have heard about a little kid that sang the national anthem before the St. Cloud State game. It was bound to show up on youtube, and it finally has. This kid and his voice on the eve of an historic election couldn’t have been more serendipitous. This should also give you at [...]

Wednesday night’s Gopher win over the South Dakota State Jackrabbits was dreadful for everyone, and somehow more dreadful than last season’s “victory” over the Jackrabbits. The Gophers were looking back on a string of impressive wins, or looking ahead to finals, Louisville, Christmas break, and maybe summer vacation. Clearly, neither team wanted to be there, [...]

As the nation pauses for a day to remember all that we have, we as Minnesotans, students, alumni, and Gopher fans also have plenty to be thankful for. However, instead of pointing out the obvious (except one exception), I’d like to draw your attention to unsung, rarely noticed people, places, and things that make attending [...]

Everything that Travis Busch needs, Kevin Payton has. Everything that Kevin Payton needs, Travis Busch has. And for this reason, instead of the Gophers having two solid contributors, they have two players that just can’t seem to fit in. Kevin Payton has received more grief than any player on the current roster. He has been [...]

You aren’t seeing things. I did just write that Dan Coleman and Kevin Peyton played key roles in the Gophers surprisingly lopsided 89-56 victory over the Bison. While both players had their best games of the season, it is admittedly a stretch to say either decided the game. In fact, it is a stretch to [...]
