Daily Nugz - Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Who am I, and why am I here?

Onwards Geauxfurs fans. Only 17 days (math?) until the first home football game, I don't have my season tickets in hand yet, and I live 5 miles from campus. Anyone else still waiting?

I will give any TDG reader one of my tickets to the South Dakota game on 9/11 if they can take a picture with Joel Maturi while getting a legitimate, verifiable answer to the question: "January 2007. Charlie Strong. WHY DIDN'T YOU?" Submit it to the site.

(2) There was a Volleyball 101 event last night at the U for the lady Gophs. Check out the "live blawg" of the event here.

(3) Speaking of Volleyball, they will be holding their 2009 Final Four Celebration on the 28th, when they take on Marquette at 7pm at the Sports Pavilion. Go out and support your non-revenue Gopher stars.
