    This looks to be 40 on the nose (-33 to +27) and that looks good enough to me.

I mean look at the half time contest for proof, what percentage of those people throw it over 4 yards? And those are all younger people, there are a lot of old guys around here.
    Uncle Rico, is that you?

    He needs to throw the ball over 20 yard downfield about 1.5 times per game.

    He can do that.

    Despite the ground and pound in the GT game, he aired it out deep 5 times, as far as I can recall. He completed 3 of them...two for TDs to TJ and a 3rd to CAB that should have been a TD, but was call out at the 4 yard line. These were low risk/high reward throws, including the two incompletions. I expect these throws to continue to be in the game plan, as long as the OL proves capable of protecting him, so defenses canít stack the box.

    Great post.

    I think Tanner Morgan is one of those guys who will always be under-appreciated by the more casual football fans ó by that, I mean the type of fan who obsesses a bit over 'The Deep Ball'.

    Morgan is certainly not an impressive physical specimen.

    But I'll be surprised if he isn't at or near the top of the B1G passer efficiency ratings at the end of this season. And I think there's a good chance that he leads this team to a very strong finish in 2019.

    With all due respect any Power 5 QB above 5th string should be able to throw a football 40 yards. Maybe not a frozen rope with the flick of a wrist but an arcing 40 yard "bomb" is not a problem for Tanner. More important can he accurately thread the needle on a 7 yard slant pattern on 3rd and five? That's all I want from Tanner.
    Stupid rebuttal.

    When I said this, I meant the all time leading passer at Minnesota, for career totals. That's actually a fairly difficult challenge, as Weber is the conference's 3rd all time in yardage. I think Morgan can do it if he remains the starter until graduation and stays healthy.

    Yep, the single season record is very attainable this season. That career total is a pretty big number. A lot of things would have to fall in place. As I alluded to earlier, the high interception numbers for Weber and Brees bothers me a lot when I look at the overall numbers. Iíd rather Morgan not break the record if it requires him to throw up for grabs a bunch, like those guys did.

    Stupid rebuttal to what ? I know Studwell55's sense of humor enough that he was being facetious about TM2 being able to throw 40 yards. My point was most yokels posting here think they can roll out of bed and sling a football 40 yards no problem - most can't throwing downhill much less under game conditions and I'll die on a hill defending that position. My other point is that Tanner's arm is "good enough" and that's all we need.

    He was being facetious. I was being facetious. Humor, all around.

    Maybe someone can organize a passing camp.

    I can hit a golf ball 40 yards. I just don't know what direction it will be going.

    Total Yardage Stats can be incredibly misleading. Donít even get me started on AW8.

    TM2ís W-L stats are what matters. So far, pretty good.

    Yes, sir... that's correct.

    The Gophers are gonna run the ball a lot in 2019, folks.

    In any given game, if our passing yards exceed our rushing yards it probably means we're playing from behind on the scoreboard.
