    Minnesota State University - Mankato?
    Minnesota State Mankato?
    Mankato Normal School?


    Ahh fu** it.

    Second State Normal School from here on out.
    As long as they keep dominating the league, any of those suffice

    This is correct. IIRC, he is a yuuuge Trump guy.

    Maybe because at the time Coach was on, there was no apparent connection? The "Minnesota State Screaming Eagles" were a Division I football program. They went off the air while Mankato was still Mankato State, and were (and still are) Division II in football. (I guess there had been a move to convert MSU to Minnesota State back some time in the 60's, but that was long before I had ever even heard of Mankato, much less lived here.)

    It was a good show, though. Jerry Van Dyke as Luther was great. And I'm so old that I remember when Shelley Fabares (who played coach's wife) was the eldest daughter on the Donna Reed Show.

    Gotta embrace what we got. Some years ago a poster said BG's away uni's looked like Tootie Roll wrappers, and it was true. I do prefer them to the current browns. Edit: Imagine this reply is to aparch and is worded differently.

    Wait, sorry, it was indoor plumbing that came into town that year. TV showed up in 1992.

    If Mankato is the cow town, is Bemidji the beaver town or the ox town?

    Also, how has there not been a reference to "Land Cows" yet, or did that forum bit die when the NCHC started?

    so as a long time (35 year old) Minnesota state, Mankato state, Minnesota University at Mankato, STD's at Mankato state and purple cow state fan I sit here wondering about what the (coach) jokes are about. I remember the show but I did not really watch it at all. Can someone please help gap this generational divide for us young purple cow calves ?

    That is true, except the old timers never forget something like that. (aka my Mankato State alumni dad who brings it up every time I tell him Tech is playing Minnesota State.)

    Coach is still going strong on the "ME TV" type stations. It was on last night while I was channel surfing.
