Golden Nugz for 05-19-09

The Big Ten announced their regular season awards.  Gopher second baseman, Derek McCallum was the only Gopher to make first team All-Big Ten.  That is great, but what bothers me is the McCallum was not B10 Player of the Year.  Instead it went to Ohio State catcher Dan Burkhart.  I haven't watched a ton of games this year but I fail to see how a guy who 40 points behind McCallum or how McCallum's double digit RBI lead over anybody was not enough to overcome finishing a 1/2 game out of first place.  Burkhart may be a great catcher who does far more than producing at the plate, I'm guessing it is that coupled with OSU finishing at the champs that won it for him.  I'm disappointed for McCallum, I thought he was a lock to win it.

  • In other news, Pam Borton lost one of her assistants to UCONN.  Marisa Mosely must have been doing something right because she is moving on up to one of the premier programs in all of Women's basketball.
  • The Gopher Hockey schedule is shaping up according to Roman's research.
  • The Barn floor is being replaced!  This should be its own post.  Here is a history of the Barn.  But 1,407 Gopher basketball games have been played on that exact floor.  There have been exactly 2 losing seasons for the men since 1935-36.

I'd like to know what many of your best memories are of the Barn.
