    Gopher Hole

    The Gophers lose to North Dakota State to day 27-21. The big gun for NDS was
    a running back that ran for 266 yards and a TD . NDS pilled up over 550 yards
    of offense. The Gophers are now 1-7 under a new coach, I think they are worse
    by far than we are.

    Well, we certainly have plenty in common with them.

    -Loss to a 1AA
    -1-7 record
    -Conference doormat
    -new head coach

    If both teams played, it'd be a helluva game.

    Hasn't Minny practically laid flat in their games? That is, not even really been competetive?

    Lest you offend them and they haunt you with the ghost of Lawrence Welk, I think they prefer to be called NDSU...

    Seems like all the TV revenue sharing money hasn't done much for the Gophers...

    Their new stadium should help recruiting a lot. I can't believe its only going to seat 51,000 though. They have a couple million in the metro alone and are the only BCS team in the state. Should be able to fill 100K in my opinion.

    Is NDSU the team we play next year?

    NDSU in two years...

    Maybe NDSU will be the 12th team in the Big Ten... They've beat the Gophers in FB (should have beat them last year too) and Whisky in MBB...

    I don't get how it can be a two-tiered horseshoe and only seat 51K. The decks must be pretty shallow.

    The Fargo metropolitan area has more like 200,000 people than one million. My son is going to college there.

    Oops, sorry now that the drawing developed I see that you were referring to the University of Minnesota and not NDSU

    unless we can start playing NDSU will put up a fight against us, they are ranked 2nd i think in div. 1 aa behind UNI, SDSU is decent this year, around 500 but just started div. 1 ball this year

    Regardless, doesn't MN have like 45k Students? Their alumni base has to be huge as well. That just has to be a terrible fanbase.

    I'm a Minnesota native and let me tell you, they do have terrible fan base. That is a pro town all the way. They'll support whoever is winning, whether it be the Twins, Vikings (or even Gopher WBB team - you wouldn't have believed all the Gopher WBB fans that materialized, the disappeered, a few years ago). Then when the star fades, they move on to the next winner.
