Golden Nuggets 03.05.2009

 

Big win last night.  The best rodent definitely won.  Yes, Gophers are superior to badgers.  Remember Caddy Shack?  By the way, that ends any conversation when people make fun of our mascot.  Fear the Gopher!

Personally, I think the win solidifies the NCAA tournament berth for the Gophers.  Simply put, the Gophers have 8 wins against likely tournament teams (including Cornell and NDSU...the latter who is going to be a TOUGH first round game for some unlucky opponent who hasn't been paying attention).  About the only thing that could derail us at this point is if we lose to Indiana in the B10 tournament.

Okay, here are some links:

Adam Rittenberg believes that Matt Carufel is one of the five transfers into the Big Ten to watch.

Here is an interesting story about revenues and expenses for Big 10 football programs.

The Gophers women's swimming and diving team will be sending a conference high 14 swimmers to the NCAA championships March 19-21.

Not sure if we had reported it earlier, but the women's hockey team has started their playoffs already.  Twin sisters Monique and Jocelyn Lamoureux led the Gophers past the Beavers in the first round.  Their name may sound familiar--brother Jacques leads D-1 hockey in goals at Air Force.

The baseball team couldn't overcome Northern Iowa, dropping a game to the Panthers 4-3 at the Dome.

Speaking of baseball, sophomore baseball pitcher Cullen Sexton was named Big Ten pitcher of the week for his efforts over the weekend getting a win and a save en route to a Gophers DQ Classic title.  By the way, I like these gold baseball uniforms.
