[quote name='Twins Twerp'][quote name='Brock Beauchamp'][quote name='biggentleben'][quote name='SpiritofVodkaDave']Making Gopher shirts seems like a good way to bankrupt the business, does anyone actually care about that teams crappy football/basketball team?
Now if you did hockey you could be onto something...[/QUOTE]
Hockey is huge, but many years the basketball merchandise is nip and tuck for the biggest sellers at Gold Country. Football isn't tremendously popular, but then again, going more retro and bringing out some of the history of the program would make for cool shirts. Something like "My favorite college football team is the last team to win 3 consecutive national championships, and my grandpa was 12 when it happened!"[/QUOTE]
I don't know enough about college sports and the Gophers to even think of ideas for those shirts.
To be honest, I kinda hate college sports. I like March Madness and I'd probably get into college hockey if the opportunity arose but I will never be a diehard fan of either.[/QUOTE]
Who cares what you think about college sports...if you run an ice cream business and don't like chocolate, you still carry it.
College sports sell merchandise, especially a university with 53,000 students located in the middle of a city with a population of 3,317,308[/QUOTE]
Yeah, that's exactly what I said. You did read the first sentence of my post, right? There were only three sentences in total so I can't see how you would have missed it.
