Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

My takeaway from Mount Royal here in Mankato last night. Kato looked rusty but MR wasn't the usual overmatched Canadian squad. They were pretty good skaters which kept them in the game. My the end of the 3rd they reverted to the usual Canadian crap that usually always is the undoing to any Canadian ...

Re: GPL software upgrade.... & Other new things

I know, I was just making an observation. Nothing I can do about being colorblind either. Might be fine for other types of it, just not for mine. It maybe explains your confusion of wearing Purple & Gold for the Mavericks and Maroon & Gold for the Gophers.... They look identical for you! :biggrin2:...

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

I wish they would/could keep Sturm and Mayhew up here but I totally get why they are in Iowa. No waivers needed and they deserve to be playing rather than being a player rotated in and out of the line up every game.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

It just seems that Rask is going to continually get a pass since he is a $4M a year player and they aren't going to spend that on a player in the AHL. I don't think there has been a more obvious choice for a buyout for the Wild since the inception of this team. Put me in the preposterous statement t...

Re: College football 2019

Didnt know that about the kid from game day. It sucks that he is being attacked for something 8 years old, buuuut, I do like having cautionary tales to reiterate to my teen and young adult clients about how putting stuff on the internet can come back to haunt. Good on him the take the cash and give...

Re: College football 2019

The fallout of the several stories from the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game in the past two weeks has reached full on $h!t show status. One story is about the Iowa State fan who held up a sign on Gameday asking for money for Busch Light to be sent to his Venmo account. That blew up so big that he ...

Re: College football 2019

There is NO good reason for Iowa to rise in the rankings after they have a bye week. Yes I know, to you chuckleheads :mrgreen: Iowa should never rise in the rankings but I don't think any team should rise in the rankings after a bye week.

How traumatic can Iowa really be? It's a vast majority of cornfields and Pizza Ranches. The only thing that leaves you pining for being back in Iowa is driving through the flat abyss that is Nebraska. Iowa at least has hills.
In some areas there are hills. :)

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

I had no idea until I just did a two minute Google search about Big Buff. My first thought was "how is he worth that?" And then I saw the stats....I had NO idea his stats were that good.

Re: 2019-2020 Wild Season

I don't think any of us can be surprised at the money they gave Jared but the term is what I think most of us are concerned with. But with his style of play he could still be a very effective d-man in 5-6 years that is worth that money. Of course, it's the worry of injury derailing his career that m...

American Assasin: I have not read the books. Can you smash more cliches into a story? JFC, the first part was good, a nice character study, then it spiraled downward into every action movie ever. Meh. Like all of us who are fans of the books said, we hope that Amazon gets a hold of Mitch Rapp and i...

Re: College football 2019

Iowa pulls it off against state. Was hoping they would lose Iowa has had a hard time putting State away recently when playing this game in Ames. Iowa State did their best impression of their 1980's teams by screwing up on that punt that finished off the game. Now Iowa just needs to heal up and then...
