The U just announced that Nick Bjugstad will be returning to the Gophers for next year!!! This is, of course, SUPER DUPER AWESOME news that has now made me want to dance. Unfortunately, I'm dancing to "Call Me Maybe" because that song will be stuck in my head for weeks. (Can't lie though...I do like that song). Anyhow, this pretty much assures the Gophers of a preseason #1 ranking and it will really cement the high expectations for next year's squad. That is not a bad thing. It's nice to have one Gophers squad where you go into the season with more than hopes, dreams, and prayers.
