The Sound of Victory: Songs Gopher Hockey & Others Blast In Their Winning Locker Rooms

+

Hat tip to Nate Wells (@gopherstate) for calling my attention to this fun article from USCHO that looks at the decision making, psychology, and tradition of selecting a "victory song" for post-game locker room celebrations. Both the women's and men's Gopher hockey teams are featured and I can guarantee you won't guess the Pride on Ice victory song.

Nice writeup from The Daily. A sample:

"Gophers head coach John Anderson has always believed that the leader of a team has to be the team itself. That was on display this past summer, as members of the baseball team took the initiative to change the team’s offseason lifting routine."

S&C, it's not just for football.

Hey Gophers, I thought this may be of interest to some, because it can easily be done to replicate for the Gophers season (will just take some time). But it's a great tool to use in many different ways as a coach or a stats guy. It's not on the Level of our man Matt's Models, but it's something I did in my coaching life and what I was messing with throughout this year. So I put a blog post together and thought you guys might find it interesting on its merits (wrong team I know, more gopher homer takes :))

As a member of different college SBN sites, I try to pass along information that I think each fanbase would appreciate when I get the chance. This is a timely and good read on some of the details coming into play for NSD. the numbers game as it pertains to schollys is a pretty interesting topic by itself and this talks to that a little bit.
