The Minnesota Kicks soccer team was an unexpected huge success in the opening season of 1976. There were so many fans at the opener that owner Jack Crocker decided to open the gates and let them all in so that the game could eventually start. Merrick, Coker, West and Bick were players, Goodwin was the coach, and former Gopher tight end Kramer was the general manager.
