Gophers Locker Room Reception

Reception 1
Thanks to Gophers Coach Brewster for allowing the sports marketing folks at the University of Minnesota to turn his team’s locker room into a bar/reception area Monday evening. Coach Brew was even kind enough to stop by to speak with corporate season ticket holders who came to see the new stadium — and his team’s spacious locker room at The Bank.

The Gophers locker room was quite impressive. I think it’s probably the size of a small ice hockey rink. (I’m not kidding.) And the photography that adorns the walls is superb. Actually, the University of Minnesota has always had good sports photography as long as I can remember. If you can’t get inside the Gopher’s locker room, check out the photos in the lobby at the Radisson University on the University’s East Bank or the Applebee’s inside and you’ll see what I mean.

Combined with Williams Arena, Mariucci Arena, the University Acquatic Center and the new TCF Bank Stadium, the University of Minnesota probably has some of the best sports facilities in the country. Of course, the sporting public expects you to win. That’s all!
