Worried about losing three straight conference games, the Gophers put in backup quarterback Demry Croft late in the second quarter against No. 21 Michigan State.
Croft found his rhythm in the fourth quarter and connected on three touchdown passes, but that wasn't enough for a victory in the rain on Saturday night.
On Wednesday Oct. 11, we celebrated the International Day of the Girl. On this day, I began to think about the lives of women and girls in other countries. There are an estimated 17.8 million women worldwide living with HIV, which constitutes 51 percent of all people living with HIV. Girls between the ages of 15-24 are disproportionately impacted by this horrendous disease.
For this weekly column, the Minnesota Daily interviews somebody knowledgeable on the Gophers next opponent: Michigan State. This week, we interviewed the State News’ senior football beat reporter Souichi Terada. This is his fifth semester at the State News, and his first year covering Michigan State football.
Minnesota is winless in the Big Ten this season, and they might stay that way for another week.
After two consecutive conference games, two consecutive losses to Big Ten teams and two consecutive games where quarterback Conor Rhoda threw an interception in the last minute of play, Minnesota looks to break from the trends that have followed the team recently.
Authorities believe the same group of four male suspects are involved in both incidents.
The words “dangerous feeling” were used by assistant coach Justin Smith to describe Gophers junior Peter Jones’ attitude.
Jones added another top-10 to his resume this year at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational at Meadow Club in Fairfax, California, which was his second top-10 finish in as many tournaments. Jones shot seven under, which was eight shots off the lead and five off of the top five. The Gophers finished 11th as a team in a field that had five teams in the Golfweek’s top 50.
Trailing 11-4 in the third set, Minnesota’s hope for a match sweep seemed bleak.
Instead, the Gophers went on a 10-3 run to tie the set at 14, eventually winning the set by a final score of 25-23, earning the sweep.
"I don't think the plan was to force them into mistakes," said head coach Hugh McCutcheon. "I think it was just about our athletes making good choices at the right time.
As temperatures and (quite probably) academic grades plummet, the perfect fall latte is a must-have when cozying up to study.
This week, A&E scoured the streets from West Bank to Southeast Como in search of a latte with rich flavors and reminiscent of autumns past. A latte so bold you actually stand a chance of working on the homework you brought along to the cafe, a latte unlike any other: here are campus’s finest.
The next Friday the 13th won’t fall in October for another six years, so take advantage of the variety of options held on the (second) creepiest day of the year.
Most events are in high-demand, so reserve tickets and make plans ahead of time in case of sold-out shows and long lines. Events across the Twin Cities metro area range from amped-up haunted houses to cheap tattoos — which will you choose?
One University of Minnesota doctoral student stood out at a national flu forecasting competition this summer.
Each year the U.S. Centers for Disease Control holds an influenza forecasting competition where researchers seek to predict the virus’s severity as well as the onset of flu season. University public health Ph.D. student Yang Liu, who placed fourth, said her statistical model stood out because it used environmental data, which influences public health.
Edie Overturf is an assistant printmaking professor at the University of Minnesota, and one of five recipients of the Jerome Fellowship for emerging artists in 2016 — that's from a pool of 229 applicants.
The Gophers came into this season with questions at quarterback, and after five games, the position is Conor Rhoda's — for now.
While he has 54 completions per his 97 attempts, he has also thrown four interceptions in five games.
For midfielder Molly Fiedler, it's not about putting the ball in the net herself, it's about helping other players succeed.
Fiedler has played 59 games over the course of her Minnesota career. Her first career goal came on Oct. 1 when Minnesota defeated Maryland 3-1. She has 15 career assists, including five this season.
Freshman outside hitter Jasmyn Martin didn’t always know that she wanted to play volleyball at the college level. In her sophomore year of high school, she faced a choice between basketball and volleyball as her sport of choice.
“I had to make that big decision, and I thought if I stop playing, I’m going to regret it,” she said.
For the Gophers, that decision paid off. Martin has added to the young core of the Minnesota volleyball program, providing both offense with her 93 kills that rank fifth on the team, and defense with 24 digs and 21 blocks.
Gophers offensive lineman Jared Weyler returns this week from a foot injury, but the Gophers injured list is still long and full of starters.
To make up for these injuries, head coach P.J. Fleck has had to pull redshirts. Two freshman cornerbacks now wearing redshirts could lose them in the Michigan State game this Saturday. Freshman Rey Estes is listed second-string cornerback behind junior Antonio Shenault, and freshman Justus Harris is listed behind sophomore Coney Durr — who is recovering from a torn ACL.
The Dinkytown Business Alliance is struggling to bring new businesses into the fold.
DBA has brought Dinkytown’s business owners together for the last 69 years, with a mission to “strengthen the business climate of the Dinkytown commercial area.” But the organization has seen declining interest from local businesses, with some disagreeing with the way it’s run.
Here is what the past few days have taught me. The same conservatives who mock progressives as “snowflakes” cannot handle criticism, and their immediate reaction is not discussion and debate, but physical confrontation steeped in toxic masculinity. The University administration showed us last year that it is less interested in defending students from hate crimes by protecting bigots’ platforms of speech. But the campus community steps up.
Walking on Huron Boulevard in Stadium Village reminds me of my middle school days, when I use to foolishly traverse suburban highways by foot. There is no parking lane that insulates you from traffic like many other Minneapolis streets, so cars zoom by an arm from the edge of the sidewalk. The empty grass field with the University of Minnesota sign sits inconspicuously empty, leaving you unsure if it’s supposed to be a park or just something the University hasn’t got around to yet.
The University of Minnesota was granted a patent for a fast-acting cyanide antidote last month, a development over a decade in the making.
While other cyanide antidotes already exist, the antidote developed by University researchers is more effective than others on the market, in part because it’s administered by injection. Researchers hope the antidote will save the lives of people exposed to hydrogen cyanide, including firefighters, industrial workers and terrorist attack victims.
The Gophers are about start another campaign in the Big Ten, and for the first time since 2015-16, they have a new leadership core.
That group of four players is led by junior Tyler Sheehy, picked as captain last spring, who is embracing the title and is ready to learn as the Gophers head into conference hockey on Friday.
