MADISON, WIS. -- It's great to be back at Camp Randall Stadium. This is my second time here covering the Gophers for the Star Tribune. But I came here a few times as a spectator. And I was here as the beat writer for the Minnesota Daily in 1994.
Hard as it is to believe, that was the last time the Gophers won here. We had a good laugh this week, when Mike Hendrickson, the current beat writer for The Daily, found this picture of the coverage from the 1994 win. How about that photo of Chris Darkins by Dilip Vishwanat! And Justin Conzemius was always the go-to guy for postgame quotes.
Jim Wacker, those jerseys with the huge M's on the shoulders -- good stuff.
Great football weather here today. Partly cloudy with temps in the upper 40s. I walked along Regent Street, passing by all the tailgate lots. Badgers fans were giving Gophers fans good natured jabs.
I'm back in the same press box -- here's the view. My last trip here, 2014, I was able to confirm that the press box does indeed sway during "Jump Around."
Anyway, check back here for any pregame developments.
