Will the Minnesota Basketball continue to improve next year?

Following a downright depressing 2015-16 campaign which featured only two conference wins, Minnesota Basketball fans weren’t expecting a whole lot from last year’s season. Despite the Golden Gophers adding local sensation Amir Coffey, many figured the Gophers would at best be a bubble team come March.

Can Minnesota Football reclaim Paul Bunyan’s Axe this year?

Thirteen years. It has been thirteen years since Minnesota Football has beaten Wisconsin to claim maybe the most unorthodox trophy in college football. Why Gophers and Badgers care so greatly about having an oversized axe is beyond me, but it’s tradition. A tradition that has, frankly, become quite stale in recent years. This rivalry has been so one-sided for so long that it would...

Minnesota at Purdue to Kick at 3:30pm
