    Bateman opting out of 2020 Football Season

    Hell yeah, Rashod! Set yourself up financially, you served this program tremendously! You are clearly ready for the NFL, and we were lucky to have you here.

    Seth Davis on Pitino at MN: "before the fans run him out of the job, perhaps they should consider whom the school might find who would do any better."

    The article is also absolutely horrible... "The larger question for fans is whether he can get that program to the point where they will stop trying to fire him every time his team loses a game." Who the hell is trying to get him fired after every loss? A few people, maybe, but this fan base as...

    Seth Davis on Pitino at MN: "before the fans run him out of the job, perhaps they should consider whom the school might find who would do any better."

    This is such a cliche, simple and old argument of "who would do better"....I hate it. Its not the fans job to know what future candidates would do better, but fans can absolutely criticize results and want change if expectations aren't meant. Sure, the ones crying in the first 2-3 years can...

    Steve Marik: "A lot of people don’t like PJ Fleck. I’m not one of those people. I respect the heck out of Fleck."

    He's polarizing, that's for sure. I think the vast majority in Minnesota have went from a split decision on PJ, to rowing the boat. Like all polarizing people, a lot of people don't like him, but also a lot do. I just don't know how people could dislike him...passionate, enthusiastic...

    Former Nebraska QB, Noah Vedral, transfers to Rutgers

    That Rutgers vs Gophers game might have been the worst QB play I've ever seen...and I've seen Chris Streveler play a full game at QB and complete only one pass.

    Edgerton two-sport standout Ben Wileman excited to join Minnesota football team

    I picture PJ talking to these walk on types and showing them the cool videos of him giving former walk ons scholarships and using that as a motivational tool to give the player something to work for. You can go to Drake....or...you can walk on here, play in the Big Ten, and hopefully get a...

    Got a D1 recruit to walk on from Badger-town. Very nice.

    Jerry Kill: “I’ve been known as a fix-it guy. We’ll see if I still have that title or get fired. I’m like anybody else.”

    He inherited a 3-9 team, and by my count went 29-29...or do non-conference wins not matter?

    Jerry Kill: “I’ve been known as a fix-it guy. We’ll see if I still have that title or get fired. I’m like anybody else.”

    Jerry Kill deserves so much more credit than he gets around here. Some of that is his own doing, not really with the results on the field, but his mouth after leaving the program. I'm extremely happy that we ultimately landed PJ, but also grateful what Kill did here. Without the health concerns...

    P.J. Fleck believes Tanner Morgan could be a high NFL Draft pick

    He'll have had to really work on his physical abilities to go in the first two days. The NFL is also transitioning to more of dual threat QB, and I don't think Tanner has that extra ability (especially at the NFL level) beyond throwing. I don't mean this to take anything away from him. He's the...

    Minnesota Gophers - 2020 NFL Draft

    Gophers being represented well in the draft. PJ has done tremendous things for this program, but the turn around started with Kill/Claeys. This was their last recruiting class.

    Analysis: Four-star Illinois QB/WR Sam Jackson commits to the Gophers

    I saw someone in the Steven Ortiz thread mention that they have their eye on Sam Jackson (nice call!) after someone mentioned that Ortiz could maybe help recruit his 7v7 teammates Phil Riley and Junior Alexander.... Did Ortiz and Jackson play on the same 7v7 team?

    STrib profile: Antoine Winfield Jr. could become first Gophers football player drafted in first round since 2006

    Winfield Jr is such a stud, and we aren't used to that here. I don't know about first round, but he's gonna represent the U so well in the NFL.

    Can/will Seth Green take the next step in his evolution?

    me too. PJ is still coaching a team that fully isn't his. He has done a great job with some of the holdovers from the previous regime. It was great coaching for his team to come up with a role for a player like Seth that was too talented to ignore, but I'm guessing that role would never be on...

    Can/will Seth Green take the next step in his evolution?

    They'll get him on the field no doubt with the wildcat, just might be even more diminished this next year than it was last. He'll no doubt still have at least a small handful of game changing plays there. Just wondering if he'll step up elsewhere. The coaching staff was very creative in the role...
