Stadium (history) News

Minn Post ran a story on the history of Minneapolis's first public football stadium, Parade Stadium. Despite me being old enough, I knew/remember nothing about this stadium.

Gopher's Up to 11 Seed in Bracketology

1

Largely on the basis of the win over Florida State and the stunning revelation that we are not required to lose against zone defenses, the Gophers have actually climbed into the tournament before we reach B1G play...again. Now it is up to R2P2 to live up to the real reason he was brought in: keep it up through the horror show that is the B1G without collapsing down the stretch like Tubby. If he does that, I will admit forever on here that I am an idiot for naysaying his hire. You can throw me in whatever substitutes for an internet pillory these days (I'm guessing the CNN comment boards).

Gophers 37th in Home Field Advantage?

+

"While traditionally elite FBS teams should not fare well in this exercise, the same can be said (and noted in the chart) about teams that are traditionally really bad. Where homefield means most is with the next tier of teams behind the absolute elite - mostly BCS conference teams that can usually compete for conference titles, but who do not have four star recruits filling the two-deep and are not always legitimate BCS Championship contenders. That's when the raw value of homefield matters most; when the talent is strong but not elite and players are more susceptible to the impact of crowd noise, tradition and atmosphere. Personally, as someone who grew up with season tickets to Camp Randall in Madison, Wisconsin, I'm proud of number two - yet I also understand that Wisconsin is not an elite team with an elite recruiting class every season and a team likely to contend for a national championship. Given my explanation, I wonder if Oklahoma fans would feel the same way. "
