So there is very little being blogged here lately and I apologize for that. It is the dog-days of blogging. Basketball is over, spring football is over (not like we did much to cover that anyway), recruiting is quiet and we have a few months before anything starts happening with football. So with that said I want to know what you want to hear about.
We try to give opinions on Gopher topics. We give previews and reviews from our perspective, we analyze the state of the various Gopher programs as we see it and for some reason you read what we write (and we thank you for that :)). But I want to know what you want to see on the blog over the next several weeks. Do you want to start seeing football previews in May? Positional previews? Opponent previews? Recruiting roundups or predictions? Something non-Gopher related? Basketball or Hockey stuff? Baseball stuff? You tell us and either we'll try to write something or better yet go ahead and write something yourself. Put something in the FanPosts and if it is remotely well thought out or researched and we'll bump it to the front page.
Now a few Nuggets.
- The Viking's stadium bill is finally going to a vote. Be sure to check out Daily Norseman for all things Viking's stadium related, including this plea to contact your representatives. I really enjoy politics but I often find that I really hate politicians.
- Gopher Football has announced a couple start times. We will kick off the season at UNLV at 10:00 PM CST! Yes, get ready for a late night of Gopher football. On the bright side, if you wanted to head out to Vegas for the game you could leave Thursday morning and get there in plenty of time for the game. The game at Iowa will kick off at 11:00 AM and Northwestern (homecoming) will also be at 11:00 AM.
Gophers offered Ohio running back, Chris Davis. We offered him quite a while ago, which is significant because Davis is coming off an ACL tear and we were the only major program to show some confidence in the kid at the time. Davis was at one point a highly sought after RB, this is the kind of kid I think we need to land.
- SB Minnesota picked up on a sweet quote from Jerry Kill at an event at Richfield High School.
- Don Lucia supports changing the helmet styles in college hockey and we still don't know what Nick Bjugstad will do next year.
- Maybe Bjugstad can make a Twitter announcement like this when he finally decides. Too funny.
