Oh geez – I missed last week on my Gophers blog, but I didn’t have any breaking news that I felt the need to express. Sorry loyal Gopher blog readers!
I miss Gopher Football! The only recent Gopher Football news that I deem remotely important is that the Big Ten Conference has announced kickoff times for a few of the 2009 Gopher Football games including:
Minnesota’s home opener against Air Force Falcons on September 12 will kick off at 6 p.m. – I don’t love late start times for college football – it just feels wrong, but on opening day I am guessing they are going to squeeze in all kinds of pre-game activities to keep fans at the new stadium from dawn to dusk.
Golden Gophers’ Homecoming contest against Purdue will begin at 11 a.m. on October 10th.
The Gophers Halloween game on October 31st against Michigan State is set to begin at 7 p.m. – what?!?!? Why would they plan a late game on Halloween? They better have some great trick or treating at TCF Bank Stadium! How will I convince my kids to go to or even watch a football game on TV as opposed to collecting candy on one of their favorite nights of the year??!?
