    Gophers defensive coordinator Joe Rossi agrees to one-year extension with a raise

    Personally, I'd like to see him tied down for longer than 2022. Continuity has not been a staple of our coaches under PJ.

    It is a TV sweeps period. My guess is they are sensationalizing something ordinary.

    Will the Gophers have a 2022 NFL Draft bonanza?

    I think how well the team does is the key to having a chance for more than, maybe three guys. Two guys you can say “will” get drafted: Mo and Daniel? Right? The other guys kinda gotta have real nice seasons. Ya? No?

    Which current Gopher is their best player?

    Never seen Loewe play but he is intriguing. This will be a lot easier once we have at least seen them play a game or preferably 3. Hopefully, we find a way to utilize Fox's unique talents which could blend with Gach and Ihnen defensively in the right system. Long, quick, instinctive...get...

    Which current Gopher is their best player?

    Gach looked like a shell of himself to start the season compared to what he is capable of. They he regressed and disappeared about 96% of the time he played. He has the ability....like the above poster said...he's really good uptempo offensively and in an active opportunistic defense. He's...

    Which current Gopher is their best player?

    Being Jordan has a net worth of $1.6 billion, I think your guess is safe.

    Ben Johnson Q&A Instagram Live

    Ya, or Matt's for their Jucy Lucy or 5-8 Club for their Juicy Lucy All three spots have that greasy tavern feel....and are excellent if you are in the right mood. And, I don't even live in the Twin Cities....come on Ben.

    Ben Johnson Q&A Instagram Live

    How did he get the job without a vision of how he wants to play if he was a head coach? Many successful head coaches have notebooks crammed with their vision from their journey to the position. Granted it changes as you learn what you didn’t know you didn’t know. But you’re on fire to implement...

    Transfers from last years team...

    Coaching basketball is not as easy as it appears. I agree with your analysis but NBA lottery picks are tough to entice to attend Minnesota. The result is any “stars” are often going to have warts. Much preferable to guys whose best quality is that they play nice with others.

    Transfers from last years team...

    You can run some set plays for buckets, you can back pick some lob dunks but if you don't have a guy who can score on his own it's really hard to beat teams with more talent...which the opponents all have. Play Virginia defense....we still gotta score more than the other guy. Plus, you get...

    The website has four guys on the roster: Now 5, added Sutherlin. Gach Ihnen Loewen Battle And then word is we have: Thompson Fox Willis That’s 8 guys...anybody else? And are the last 3 maybes or why aren’t they included?

    So, arguably, there are less than 100 viable, good egg, excellent basketball candidates in the portal, according to their rankings from high school.

    Brandon Johnson enters the Transfer Portal

    I saw Johnson as one of our more solid all around players. I don't see that as an easy replacement. What has me puzzled is that he has been here for a month or so with BJ and made the decision to look elsewhere. Yet when Pitino was still in play Brandon was anxious to return as a Gopher.

    Ben Johnson takes assistant job at SJSU w/Tim Miles

    Pretty crazy stuff. I missed the Tim Miles hire...thanks for putting that on my radar. The Tim Miles, Richard Pitino friendship rivalry continues in the Mountain West.

    Jim Dutcher: I’m pulling for Ben. I hope he’s able to get it turned around. It’s going to take two, three years to get this thing turned around."

    The results have been mediocre. But, they tallied in bizarre ways to get there. I don’t view the program as mediocre such that it would require a miracle worker. It just needs a coach who proves over time he is not mediocre at his craft.

    [Post Game] Spring Game Reactions

    Yes, on 19 and 29 attempts....not a huge sample size. Padded by a long run for each. I don’t believe they can consistently get first downs which is our philosophy. That’s my worry.
