Live shows galore in the month of September! First, GSU was live with 10 years of Gopher Sports Update hosts live from the State Fair. Since, it’s been more State Fair revisiting with maroon and gold talk from women’s hockey to football. This week, we depart from the State Fair for now, as GSU makes it’s annual appearance at the McNamara Alumni Center for homecoming!
Gopher Sports Update goes beyond the scores and brings listeners unparalleled access, conversations and profiles of Golden Gopher student athletes, coaches, administrators and alumni.
Gopher Sports Update will not go quietly into the fall! One week at a time, GSU is keeping summer alive with chats from the 2015 Minnesota State Fair with some of Dinkytown’s best! This week, it’s the six-time national champion Gopher Women’s Hockey team, represented by coach Brad Frost, and junior stars Lee Stecklein, Dani Cameranesi, Kate Schipper and Paige Haley.
GSU rounds out their collective time at the Minnesota State Fair by celebrating 10 years without a week off. That’s right, GSU turns 10 in 2015, and Matt and Mike welcome legendary hosts Jim DuBois and Ron Miller back to the stage to share some incredible memories and stories from their time hosting the show.
Two great traditions intersect this week as the Minnesota State Fair and Gopher Sports Update come together. Per the usual, GSU breaks down Week 1 of the Big Ten football season with a heavy tilt towards the maroon and gold’s hard fought 23-17 loss to TCU.
Football, soccer, and most importantly on this weekend’s show, volleyball, are just a few of the sports in Dinkytown cranking up the dial this time of year! The fall in Gopher sports is kicking into high gear and this week we go to The Pav to visit with Gopher volleyball junior star Hannah Tapp.
It’s been a busy summer in Gopher Athletics. So busy in fact, that Gopher Sports Update can’t keep up! But, really, what else is new? GSU plays catch up on this week’s show to get maroon and gold faithful ready for the football season, as head coach Jerry Kill discusses the 2015 campaign at Big Ten Media Day.
In a show loaded with cold takes and icy feelings, Matt and Mike shred each other for the first 10 minutes of this week’s episode, then dive face first into the ice with a look back at Gophers selected in the NHL Entry Draft.
A dark week in Dinkytown saw AD Norwood Teague step down from his duties as the head of maroon and gold athletics Friday. Host Matt Nelson takes us through the scandal starting with Norwood’s shocking confession outside of the U’s athletic complex Friday morning, to president Eric Kaler’s tense press conference later that day.
Lou Nanne has seen it all and done it all around the game of hockey, and the University of Minnesota alike. His next, and possibly biggest task, is heading up the $190 million Gopher athletics’ facilities plan, and the former GM and head coach of the Minnesota Northstars is off to a great start. Lou joins this week to give us an update on where the ‘U’ stands in their drive to complete fundraising for the massive undertaking, and he takes us back to some of his favorite memories of the university, including his playing days in a maroon and gold sweater in the early 1960s.
In an interview taped just 24 hours after former Gopher Men’s Basketball Forward Oto Osenieks and teammate Trevor Mbakwe had a harrowing experience on a flight back from Charlotte, Oto joins to detail the events, and to highlight what could very well be a future in journalism.
