The Minnesota Golden Gophers will visit Rec Hall this Saturday (Wisconsin plays Penn State on Friday night), and we’re hoping lots of Penn Staters come out to cheer the team on. The Gophers are very good, but they’ve have had their ups and downs this season. Early “ups” were the back-to-back sweeps of Texas. An early “down” was the 3-2 loss to Kansas. This past weekend, Minnesota dropped one at home to now-#1 Illinois, but bounced back with a 3-1 win over Northwestern.
In some ways, the Gophers remind us of the Nittany Lions – running hot and cold, a bit unpredictable. We asked ®uffda (a family name?) a Minnesota fan, to talk to us about which team he expects to show up against Penn State – the one that took out Texas twice (say that fast ten times), or the one that started slow against Northwestern, losing the first set 25-12, before rallying to take the match 3-1 – as well as to answer a number of other questions about the Gophers and who will win the match. Here’s a link to his answers: http://www.dignittanyvolleyball.com/2011/09/28/fanalysis-minnesota-vs-penn-state/
