What a banner day for U of Minnesota sports!

First the football team resoundingly ends their terrific campaign by
being shut out by Iowa 31-0.  Their season ends 1-7 in the Bigger Ten
and 3-9 overall.

Then the men's bball team, coming off of their Final Four appearance,
loses their second straight home game, this to Alabama.  They now
stand at 1-2 on the young season.

Next, the hockey team continued its WCHA ***, losing their 5th
straight to Colorado College.  This includes back-to-back home sweeps.
At 3-7 in league play, they will be lucky to make the tournament.

Even the women got into the act.  The soccer team was crushed 5-1 by
Santa Clara in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Congratulations to the U of M's fine athletic program for so many
resounding successes in one day.

Somewhere, Howard Salwasser is burning in hell.
