Minnesota GopherThe University of Minnesota Twin Cities is the oldest and largest part of the University of Minnesota school system. Its student body is the second-largest in the United States according to autumn 2005 statistics, with 51,175 students.

The University was originally built in 1851 and was located about a mile upstream of the Mississippi river from where it stands today. The school had to shut down following a financial crisis during the American Civil War, but reopened in 1867. It was upgraded from a preparatory school to a college in 1869.

Today's campus has buildings on both banks of the river, but the East Bank is the main portion of the campus and covers 307 acres. The West Bank of the campus has been growing rapidly, first seeing major development in the 1960s. The West Bank covers 53 acres and is home to many arts buildings and the business school.

Sports teams associated with the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus go by the Golden Gophers moniker. The Gopher mascot is a tradition as old as the state. Minnesota was tabbed the “Gopher State” in 1857 and the University appropriately adopted the animal as its mascot. However, the “Golden” adjective has not always been a part of the Gopher nickname. During the 1930s, the Gophers wore gold jerseys and pants. Legendary KSTP-AM radio announcer Halsey Hall coined the term “Golden Gophers” in reference to the team’s all-gold attire on the field. The term stuck and the University amended their formal moniker to the Golden Gophers. Despite, the golden term, the teams’ colors maroon, gold, and white.

The Gophers are members of the Big Ten Conference and the Western Collegiate Hockey Association in the NCAA. Most of the facilities that the teams use for training and competitive play are located on the East Bank of the Minneapolis campus. There are arenas for male and female basketball (Williams Arena) as well as hockey (Mariucci Arena and Ridder Arena). The Golden Gophers football team plays at the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome, home of the NFL Minnesota Vikings and MLB Minnesota Twins, in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers are a team rich with history and success. The school has held recent national championships in men's hockey (2002 and 2003), women's hockey (2004 and 2005), wrestling (2001, 2002), and men's golf (2002). The University of Minnesota has a long tradition in football winning the National Championship 6 times (1934, 1935, 1936, 1940, 1941, 1960).

The rich history of the Golden Gopher Football program is well known by most college football fans. Winning six national championships and home to many outstanding players, including Bronko Nagurski, the only college football player ever voted to be an All-American at two different positions in the same season, and Bruce Smith, the winner of the 1941 Heisman Trophy. Current coach Glen Mason is working hard to bring another Championship to the Minnesota Golden Gophers Football team.  

The Golden Gopher Men’s Hockey team is enveloped in deep tradition.  Beginning in 1922, the University of Minnesota has long been known as a hockey stronghold. The Gophers have had many great players skating on the University pond including the legendary Herb Brooks, John Mariucci and Neal Broten. The hockey team has several championship titles and will continue to be strong for many years to come. Selling out Mariucci arena to a sea of maroon and gold fans is a regular occurrence for the Men’s Golden Gopher Hockey team.

The Golden Gophers Men’s Basketball team play their games at Williams Arena, which seats 14,000 fans, so fans are constantly clamoring for college basketball tickets at Williams Arena. The Gophers have been to Final Fours, won Big Ten titles, and produced NBA legends like Kevin McHale, Flip Saunders and Bobby Jackson. Despite any controversies surrounding the Gophers basketball team, the most recent being an academic scandal a few years ago, the Gopher Men’s Basketball team is moving forward and doing things the right way. Coach Dan Monson is working toward improving the talent level and keeping the team in the hunt for the Big Ten title and doing some damage in the NCAA Tournament. The Gopher Basketball program has what it takes to put on a great show.

Minnesota is an enormous school in a huge market, so Golden Gophers tickets are extremely hot. Whether you want to see the Football team at the big Dome, the Men’s Basketball team at “The Barn” or the Men’s Hockey team at Mariucci, the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers are sure to impress!
