After Horror of 55-0 Loss to Iowa, Gophers Abandon Metrodome Altogether

Gophers dont dig the Dome anymore

Gophers don't dig the Dome anymore

 

Last November, the University of Minnesota’s Metrodome farewell was a full-fledged disaster. Iowa savaged the Gophers, 55-0.

Minnesota was still scheduled to play its 2009 spring game in the Dome before it moved into its new on-campus stadium this fall. But Gophers Coach Tim Brewster has reportedly said he will never step foot in the Dome again after the horrific Dome-ination his team endured in its finale there.

So on April 25, Minnesota will conclude its spring practice season in St. Paul with a free spring game at the University of St. Thomas.

Now, it’s possible Brewster simply wanted his team to get used to the notion of playing outdoors in Minnesota. But I like the version I heard this morning at the Big Ten men’s basketball tournament in Indianapolis a lot better. Which is, no more Dome for Brewster.

But it’ll still be there, Coach. You can’t miss it anytime you drive past downtown Minneapolis on the freeway. Don’t close your eyes when you’re driving past it. It’s simply not safe.

  1. Slow news day in Iowa… Hopefully, Cedar Rapids floods again this year. The memories of last year’s flooding in Cedar Rapids — You can’t help but remember the flooding and remember the smell of it anytime you drive past downtown Cedar Rapids on the freeway. Don’t close your eyes when you’re driving past it. It’s simply not safe.

  2. I can’t wait until all the issues with this ill-conceived, new, mini-stadium known as [T]iny [C]ramped [F]acade come to the forefront!!!!

    55-0…..live it…love it…..learn it!!!!

  3. ‘Hopefully CR floods again…’?
    Wow! That’s harsh.
    Your petty, base, contemptible and irrelevant post show nothing more than your mean spirited twisted soul is beyond redemption. Shame on you for wish a catastrophe on anyone. Do you also kick dogs and push old people down? Probably.
    If you don’t like Iowa leave. If you don’t live here, don’t visit. And by all means crawl back into what ever hole you crawled out of.

  4. GoldTeam thinks Brewster is a savior…he is going to be very disappointed just his homer buddies Max, Mona, Sid, and Rosen.

  5. Almost as disappointed as punky has been watching his $2 million home become a $1 million home! Whata hiiiiiiigh roller! lol
