If you give up 500 yards you've normally earned an F. But with this motley crew running around, even mustering the stops they did was almost miraculous. I went with a "C" for effort.

Went with a B due to improvement-related grade inflation.

Grading on the curve is necessary from time to time...at least for this edition of the Golden Gophers...in the covid alternative timeline.

Stats aren't pretty ... BUT

  • I feel like I'm seeing more 1:1 tackles.
  • Way more guys in position to make a play and not wiffing.
  • Some guys actually making plays and getting help from the second guy on the scene and such.
  • Way less 'nobody home / missed assignment' type plays.

Hopefully the stats follow eventually as it seems like they're playing a bit better.

Agree. I went with a B.
