"I think one of the reasons that I came to Minnesota was the strong support of all their programs, and I appreciate that and I think the emphasis for us going forward will be to continue to make sure we’re supporting them all so that they can achieve success both in the classroom, on the field and obviously socially as we help them prepare for life after, life after Minnesota,”
– Beth Goetz, interim athletics director at the University of Minnesota
