Last night, Jup, Hammy, and myself record the first-ever GPL Podcast, which you can download here
as an MP3. It should also be available via iTunes later this week.
This should be a weekly bit once the season gets up and running, and though of course the focus will be on the Maroon and Gold, we'll touch on other WCHA and NCAA headlines of the week as well, so -- in theory -- it should be a decent listen for all college hockey fans, or at least that's the goal.
On this week's show, which was about an hour long, we recapped the offseason from a Gopher point-of-view, hitting on the changes to the coaching staff, some early departures, and the changes to radio broadcast team and station. Then we talked big-picture and looked at the forthcoming changes in college hockey with the Big Ten and NCHC. We then got back to the Gophers and gave our thoughts on the 2011-12 version of the team that hopes to return to the NCAA Tournament. Finally, we gave our predictions for the WCHA this year, going from first to last in the league and then predicting Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year players.
This is for sure a work in progress since none of us are "radio experts" so to speak, but hopefully we get better as the season moves along.
