Brent's Big Blog's Blog on the Big Ten Network lists what he feels are the top 5 Minnesota stories from the 2008-09 year.  Some interesting ideas, but I'm curious what you all think?  His list is pretty good and you can find it here, but this would be my top 5 Gopher stories of 2008-09.

  1. The basketball team returning to NCAA Tournament and beating Louisville along the way
  2. The baseball team reversing their worst season in decades, missing a Big Ten Championship by a 1/2 game and finishing 2nd in their NCAA Tournament Regional.
  3. The football team finishing with a five game losing streak after a 7-1 finish.
  4. Hassan Mead dominating the Big Ten in any long distance race.  Leading a strong Men's track team to the Indoor and Outdoor Big Ten titles.
  5. MarQuies Gray!  His inability to get admitted followed by his spring game splash.

Please give us your top 5 Gopher stories of the year.
