Good riddance, Metrodome

The University of Minnesota got smart, buckled down, and decided to move football back outdoors and on campus starting in 2009. Good for them. Even though the stadium is expected to seat under 50,000, and in all likelihood will be named "TCF Bank Stadium," Minnesota students will finally have an authentic football Saturday to look forward to.

In remembrance of the days at the old HHH Metrodome, Mike Lucas of the Capital Times submits this piece. Interestingly, the 2008 game -- the last to be played between the Golden Gophers and the Badgers at the Metrodome -- will be the rubber game of the series; since the teams started playing there, each has 6 wins over the other.
