Photo: Minnesota Unveils New Bronze Statue Of Goldy The Gopher

Goldy the Gopher is University of Minnesota’s beloved mascot. To recognize him, the university has given Goldy his own likeness in bronze on campus.

In celebration of homecoming week, Minnesota unveiled a six-foot bronze statue of Goldy today that will be displayed at the student union. Goldy is a big fan of the statue, and I think most people will have a positive reaction as well. 

It seems like a nice way to kick off homecoming week —  the Golden Gophers take on the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday.
