South Bend, IN – “That was an absolute travesty, the way that game ended.” Coaches aren’t often known to hurl invective, but Gopher coach Bob Motzko felt it was deserved after his Golden Gophers lost in overtime to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Saturday night, ending the Gophers’ season. Motzko was upset at a pair of weak penalties called late in the game. The first, what Motzko described as a “dive” from Notre Dame’s Dylan […]
The Gophers swept the Michigan Wolverines in their BigTen quarter final matchup. Is this team coming together at the right time? It looks like it! Unfortunately, the fans were not there to support them this weekend. There were record low crowds for a Gopher home series. We get heavily into the reason why the U may be in panic mode. We then get into the weekend BigTen semi-final games. You can listen to the […]
Minneapolis, MN – “Home ice advantage is what you want,” said sophomore forward Brannon McManus after Friday’s game. “Especially when you have long games like this one.” Minnesota (17-15-4) found itself down 2-0 21:08 into the game and showing very little life, but dug deep and found a third period spark to tie Michigan (13-15-7) in the final frame and win it 3-2 on McManus’ overtime goal. The Gophers could not have started much worse, […]

Minneapolis, MN – The Gopher Men’s Hockey team had not swept an opponent at home since beating Army December 29th and 30th, 2017. Minnesota’s outgoing senior class made sure that they’d go out on a positive note. Seniors Jack Ramsey and Darian Romanko scored the first two goals for the Gophers, and senior Eric Schierhorn earned the win as Minnesota (16-15-4 Overall, 11-10-3 B1G) swept #12 Arizona State (21-12-1) to earn the team’s first home sweep […]
Minneapolis, MN – Self-pitying Gopher fans (or “fans” like a certain Mr. Reusse) were getting ready to wring their hands and decry the state of the program when highly-touted sun-belters Arizona State came to town to end the regular season. Unfortunately for them (and fortunately for the rest of us) Minnesota didn’t play to that pessimistic script. The Gophers (15-15-4 Overall, 11-10-3 B1G) handed #12 Arizona State (21-11-1 Overall) one of their biggest losses of […]
