Having just returned, I thought I'd share some thoughts about the Minnesota away game experience though it sounds like our next trip there is several years off.
First, on the positive side, Minnesota has a relatively new stadium with a brick facade and arched portals giving it a quasi-traditional feel. The fans and stadium staff exude "Minnesota nice" (the ticket taker even said "go blue" while scanning my ticket). Michigan travelled well, and you could tell that the Michigan sidelines and D heard us cheering them on during the last Gopher drive.
On the downside, the Gopher PA announcer made me really appreciate the Michigan experience. He was an over-the-top homer without any compensating humor or charm reminding me of an infomertial host on speed. He also, oddly, kept calling Drake Johnson what sounded like "Tony Johnson" (I see below he was saying "20 Johnson" -- my bad not his). Michigan's announcers are -- I've been told -- instructed to avoid histrionics & extreme partisanship but the Minnesota guy missed that memo. Also, the piped-in music was oppressively loud and relentless at least in the corner where one of the Michigan sections was. They kept playing music at high volume after Jake or Wilton got to the line, which I imagine would have impacted to some extent either's ability to change the play if the music was nearly as ear-splitting on the field as it was in the stands (I understand noise is part of the home-field advantage but it should be crowd noise).
Anyway, it is a trip worth taking (the twin cities are great) and it was fun to see us bring back the jug.
