What has changed in 30 years?

Trojans coming to town this weekend

This past weekend I went to the Gophers home opener against he fighting Coyotoes of the University of South Dakota.  I was stunned as were the other 50,000 fans when South Dakota moved up and down the field at will against the Gophers.  It reminded me of the Joe Salem era when the 1980 team was 6-5  then it was downhill from there until Lou Holtz came in and made it happen.  The fans were brutal to coach Brewster and I believe this will be his last year.  The coach is always the scapegoat but someone has to take responsibility .  They have great facilities, a new stadium and a crowd that desperatly wants them to win.  What’s missing,  passion, talent, leadership?  I don’t know but something has to change and I think that it starts from the top down.   The Gophers need a big time coach that is experienced and can get the community and students all on board, and then recruit high profile players who are also good people and good students.  I’ll take one marginal player who is going to give it everything over a prima donna  anytime.  30 years the Gophers played USC and I was there experiencing what it was like to play the the #1 team in the country.  This weekend the Gophers play USC at home who is rated #14.  They can show up and play like South Dakota did against the Gophers or they can show up and expect to get beat and then get killed.  This weekend will tell us a lot about the future of this program.

It’s been over 3 weeks since my injury waterskiing and I can report I’m healing very well.   I’m able to ride a bike and do upper body weight lifting.  I should be able to resume near normal activities in a few weeks.

Tomorrow night I’m doing a workshop on a revolutionary breakthrough in understanding Hashimoto’s disease and hypothyroidism.  Find out why you still have thyroid symptoms when your lab tests are normal.  I’ve got room for 3 more.  Call 294-3100 for the class Tuesday 7-8 pm at my clinic.  If you have fatique, are tired or sluggish, have cold feet or hands, require excessive amounts of sleep to function, gain weight easily, are depressed, have thinning hair or hair is falling out, have dry ness of  the skin or scalp, or suffer from mental sluggishness then this class is for you.

Wheels and Winds our local town days is done for another year.  It sure was a busy weekend in Osceola.  As we prepare for a fantastic fall and upcoming weekend what steps are you doing to be healthier each and every day.  Remember there is no better time than right now to eat, move, and thing better.  Keep up the great job taking care of your self.  Mary and myself are here to assist you on your journey to optimal health and well being.
