2015 Gopher Football Spring Game – What YOU Need to Know

New, 6 comments

This Saturday will be a fun filled day culminating with the 2015 Gopher Football Spring Game. It’s free but well worth your time. But before that is the 2015 Goldy's Run.

I will first go over Goldy's Run and then cover the Spring Game and other related activities. It's supposed to be a gorgeous day with The Weather Channel predicting a high of 68 F and no chance of rain.

Also, if you are going to be down on campus, stop into Stub and 'Herbs and hear our own MV along with other Gopher Football bloggers/media members talking about the Gophers in conjunction with the Goal Line Club

Please note that Gopherhole.com will be having their 4th Annual GopherHole Spring Game Tailgate for The Leukemia Lymphoma Society. It starts at noon in the Maroon lot (plus parking if you park there) and costs $25/person or $5/kids if you prepay by the end of today. Find out more here.

My Thoughts

If you can make it, I suggest you make the effort. I've actually really enjoyed the Alumni game the last two years. They do a funny play-by-play over the speakers and interview some of the alumni. Come on out and spend some time cheering on the Gophers, getting your last fix of football before summer, and get to know you fellow Gopher fans. It's fun for the whole family.
