Re: Gopher Football 2020 Season

If the Gophers are going to continue turning the corner, this looks like another favorable schedule from which they should be able to take the division. The game at uw would likely be the decider again.

Good to hear they'll finally get (at least some of) the big contract for the Whioux off the books. And adding a Gopher fan favorite is nice, too.

Laine would be great, but look at that center lineup. That's brutal. The Dumba trade HAS to be for a center, as mentioned.

If the USHL season starts somehow in November, I think he should play games there while the NCAA season is figured out, and enroll during Xmas break if needed.

Get all the guys in the pipeline as many games as possible.

Re: MLB News

People bitching about swinging on a 3-0 with the bases loaded sound as stupid as people that say don't run up the score in a college hockey or football game.
