    I’m so excited to have tickets to tomorrow’s game at mariucci! Golden gophers vs golden domers! We will see if that 8-1 win over BC was the real deal. If so I don’t see why the maroon and gold won’t be doing a salute on Saturday the following weekend after we grab 4 points from North Dakota

    How on earth are the goofs ranked #1 when they are ranked #6 in the conference and #6 in the PWR? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! This poll is a joke!

    • Goldy
