Ladies and gentlemen, your graduating Golden Gophers!

Th group above is a large group, a group that has seen a great deal of change during their time in Dinkytown. Some were every-down players and lettermen every year. Others played only sporadically, not at all, or lost out to younger players. Some were recruited and given scholarships out of high school while others walked on and paid their way through college. A few will get a shot to play on Sundays. Most came to play for Tim Brewster, only a few were recruited by Jerry Kill, but they have all played a role in rebuilding the team brick by brick into a team with respectability. They faced challenges on the field, in the classroom, and in a few cases at home. Despite that they played on. Thank you Gophers. Ski-U-Mah!
