    Gophers AD mad that fans left early

    Minnesota Golden Gophers athletic director Joel Maturi was upset with many of the fans who left before the game was over, no doubt to try to beat the traffic. He felt that the home-field advantage and the noise were big in this game. He thought it was unfair to the Gophers to leave early. And it was especially a big advantage when Cal was going toward the student section, where the noise made it very difficult for the visiting quarterback to change the play. -- Star Tribune

    Tell you what win the game and the fans won't leave

    So Gopher football fans are Cyclone basketball fans?

    Minnesota is the Iowa St. equivalent in the Big 10. I remember seeing them play against Michigan where they were able to **** away a 20 point lead in the 4th. But I can guarantee that if ISU had a new stadium like there's and we were playing Cal that place would have stayed packed all game!

    Gopher fans are not used to having a cozy stadium. In the dome no one would notice if the place went from half full to 1/3 full. Now it sticks out when people head toward the gates.

    They actually shut Best down to under 40 yards rushing in the 2nd half. They were in that game until Cal scored the go-ahead touchdown with a little over 3 minutes left in the game.

    Hell I'd stick around to see that just because it is a thing of football beauty.

    And Decker had a sick game too. 2 td catches, over 100 yds receiving and a TD pass - that kind of performance should have kept more fans there.

    Re: Gophers AD mad that fans left early

    I'd be frustrated if my athletic department just built a $275million stadium and there was only a handful of empty seats. However, Brewster has to live up to his promise of bringing the Gophers back to Pasadena.

    Exactly. Those night games at Hilton are a huge pain to get out of. Traffic is always bad and leaving 5 minutes early gets you home soo much faster. Getting around Ames is nearly impossible on a bball gameday.
