Great Takes Less Filling - Ep 5.03: Happy Scott Frost Day

In summary, FIRST HALF = GOOD and SECOND HALF = UGLY. But all in all, still a very enjoyable win. We break down what we liked and didn't like from Minnesota's 30-23 victory over Nebraska, while taking plenty of time to laugh at Scott Frost's expense. Being 1-3 against P.J. Fleck couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit


Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.09: CHAIR WEEK IS HERE!

It's a breaking news Pahd. Curtis Dunlap Jr. heads into the transfer portal and Trey Potts is out for the year. We react to both before turning our focus towards Nebraska and THE CHAIR. Here's the part of the Pahd where we remind you to head over to and donate to the Chair-ity and support the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital! Moving on to hockey, we discuss the difficulties with defense for the men and whether splitting with UMD is acceptable for the...


Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.08: BYE WEEK HOT TAKES

It's a bye week, which means we finish off our Purdue thoughts before quickly turning our attention to Urban Meyer, what else made us laugh, and UStreet's terrible betting abilities. With Nebraska on the horizon, we remind you to please donate to support the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital and the Broken Chair Trophey. Finally, we close with a nuclear HOT TAKE for Gophers Women's Hockey. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit


Great Takes Less Filling - Ep 5.02: Sloppy wins still count, even over Purdue

Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.07: WHAT WAS THAT?

WHAT. THE. HELL. WAS. THAT. Oh you know we're ranting. The worst loss of the PJ Fleck era is not passing us by without the venting of frustrations and the sharing of thoughts.

Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.06: From Colorado to Cupcake #2

Well it's official. The Gophers seem to be at least an ok/good football team. The weeks to come (ok, not this week but the B1G schedule) will determine if they can be closer to great or not. We spend this week's Pahd reflecting on a fantastic road trip to Colorado, and laughing at those teams less fortunate than Minnesota. We also celebrate volleyball, cross country, and the return of FIVE GOAL CULVERS before taking a look at what should be an overmatched opponent in Bowling Green this...


Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.05: Time for a mile high matchup

Great Takes Less Filling - Ep 5.01: A familiar non-con feeling

Do you love watching a team run into a 9 man box? Then today's Gophers game against Miami was your jam. If you're more like us, you probably need to vent some frustrations while acknowledging that a win is a win. Also, UStreet is now 2-0 on his betting predictions. So that's something to celebrate.

Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.04: Shrugging off the OSU loss

Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 5.01: Welcome back to the Pahd!

The fifth season of the Ski-U-Pahdcast is here! This week we're breathing easier knowing Chris Autman-Bell isn't seriously injured. We're also excited because everyone on the defense is better (fall camp is a hell of a drug). And we're throwing some major side eye at the Minneapolis Parks Board for rolling out what feels like a poorly planned tailgating scheme. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Ski-U-Pahdcast - Ep 4.39: Sweet retro apparel & Fair Food

This is a big episode. An episode where GoAUpher unintentionally goes vegan. An episode where we learn head coach Ben Johnson is a single starter away from having the ultimate Stan Lee Lineup. But perhaps most importantly, this episode includes a truly historic moment that you can witness with your ears. A actually legitimate and good brand asked to partner with us. #BOOM The good news? That brand is Homefield Apparel and they're launching a line of retro Minnesota gear this Saturday, 7/10....
