Row the damn boat

If Minnesota could get their fanbase to care, I think they could take off quicker.  Get some more donor money flowing in, and build some investment in the program.  Minnesotans just don't give a shit about the Gophers.  It's always puzzled me.  If they could regularly draw crowds, I think it would help the recruiting as it's a beautiful campus with a beautiful stadium located (nearly) downtown in a big city.

That is probably among the oddest of surlyisms? Given the odd place it came from.

Minnesota high school football sucks so it's not like they can just lock down the state and have the talent they need.  That means they have to convince some southerners to come up there and that's a tough sell.

They could mine the Rust Belt.  Plenty of football talent there that's used to cold weather.

That's the biggest reason Campbell has been able to be competent at ISU.  Rather than try and convince kids from Texas to come north, he's convinced kids from Ohio and Michigan to come west.  Hell, in some regards Iowa and Minnesota (at least Minneapolis) have better weather than those places, because we don't get lake effect snow and all the gloom/cloudiness.

Minneapolis, despite 3 months of cold, is a really nice city with a lot to offer.  Minnesota could be a lot better than they are despite their location and lack of local talent.

You also probably think 50 degrees is cold.

It's a humid 50. People get frostbite in that weather, it's no laughing matter sir.

Nope.  You guys seem to not realize that not only do we get the joy of subzero days in the winter, we get 100 degree days in the summer too.  We just don't get them for weeks on end, or north of 105.

My scale is this:

90+ = hot

80-90 = warm

65-80 = perfect

50-65 = mild

32-50 = chilly

10-32 = cold

Anything below 10 = cold as fuck

By your definition, Minneapolis gets 3 months of cold as fuck and another 1-2 of cold.  Source- I live in this ice encrusted place.

Cold is bad. Snow is worse. But the worst of all the ensuing mud that comes when it all melts.

And mosquitos. I hate mosquitos.

Go to the weather section.  There are 3 months (December-February) where the average daily high is below 40 degrees.  By my definition of "cold", I was right on the money.  Your definition likely differs.

I'm using lows, you're using highs.  I think that explains our disagreement.  I use highs when bitching about heat, lows when bitching about cold.

Makes sense.

Yeah, I use highs because that occurs in the hours when one would generally be outside.  

If you use the high to low swing, Minneapolis has seen a 150 degree swing in recorded temp.  That's nuts.

That's precisely my scale as well - we just rarely get "hot" or "cold" here, and never "cold as fuck."

It has been known to rain at times, however....

Wife one is hot.
Wife two looks a bad year away from full on meth head.

Second seriously looks like a chick he “rescued” from the church’s meth recovery group, which he probably taught.

I think it will all come down to how much Demry Croft can develop as a passer. We all know he can run and scramble, but the offense was a little one-dimensional when the passing game was shut down. Can the Gopher offense get a little more of a play action or even a waggle passing game developed in camp? I know they brought in some hot new kid but my money is on Croft holding it down at least to start the new season.

My scale is a bit simpler than this:

115 or more: (It's hot, and I won't be outside unless performing work duties or saving a family member from the wrath of Kahn)...

114 to 35: (It's just weather, so i just deal with it by either layering up, or stripping down & scaring all of the community cats & dogs)...

34 or less: (it's cold, and I won't be outside unless performing work duties or saving a family member from the wrath of Kahn)...

But it would be cool to see Minnesota return to levels of play never seen during the duration of my lifetime, was surprised to learn the Gophers have gridiron national championships...

Honestly, I can't remember a year like this one where there is no clear cut favorite to win the B1G West Division. Its basically a toss up between six teams that could win the trip to Indianapolis and maybe sneak into the big bowl or the playoff.

Wisky is the favorite in the west until Nebraska or Minny show me something.  Or until Ferenz dies.

They are never well attended but this year it was bumped up from Saturday to a Thursday night last minute due to weather, which made it even worse than usual.

All while being the only D1 (let alone P5) school in their state and being located within a Top 15 largest metro area.

There aren't many schools whose stadium is smaller than their student body, but they make that list.

Wtf is "ski-u-mah"


Gibberish. Some dude in the late 1800s thought ski-yoo was an Indian victory cry. It’s not. Then they added the mah so it’d rhyme with “rah” and they could use it in rallies and cheerleading.

So basically gibberish. Hullabaloo and what not.

I am counting two former Boat Rower recruits in the draft so far,

 

Chukwuma Okorofor turned down offers from lower tier Power 5 schools to stay close to home at Western, now he is going to the Steelers

 

 

Then Darius Phillips is going to Cincinnati.
