Gopher Gridders to Return to Tempe

The Gopher football team learned its bowl fate Sunday evening, and it will be a return visit to the Insight Bowl in Tempe, AZ. This year's opponent is 6-6 Iowa State, and the game will take place on New Year's Eve at 5pm.

The Gophers will be making their third trip to the Insight Bowl in the past four seasons, and the venue has not been kind to them. Minny lost to Texas Tech in the 2006 edition after blowing a huge first half lead, leading to the dismissal of coach Glen Mason one day later. Last season, the Gophers lost to Kansas in Tim Brewster's first bowl appearance.

Here's my favorite comment thus far, courtesy of the Star Tribune's readers:
"The gophers don't deserve to go. A 6/6 season earns an F. The U is a Public University and WE should not spend the money it costs to travel the team. They will lose money."
We'll have a preview as the game approaches. For now, relax and start thinking about some "Insight Memories" in the making.
