Don’t trade Brusdar Graterol you idiots.
How about we play in the present for once? Maeda on paper qualifies as our #1 starter.
By anybody’s analysis he is our third best starter and proven with playoff experience.
For a guy who may never stay healthy or is destined for the bullpen. Brusdar is potential.
Maeda helps us this season and he is affordable salary wise giving us some flexibility to add more guys in the future.

Yep, you can't hold 30 players with potential forever. Either they need to be in the majors or you trade a few for guys you can use right now. I like the trade.

I bet he's so woke.
Since you, completely unnecessarily, brought your conservative culture crusade into this — GOOD!

So long as we can’t get him and he doesn’t choose another Big Ten school, then I’m glad he went to one of the most liberal (and also best, period) schools in the country! Just because it pisses you off! Hahahah

I've always thought 2 to 3 defensive tackles a class was a must. I have been wrong before.
I think we have a couple that have been here three seasons now and haven’t contributed on the field. Those are guys you’d like to target as “show me something this spring ball, or else you might want to think about transferring”.

First time going to the 247 site this year and looking at our prospects list. I can't remember us with this high interest or top targets being 4 stars at this stage in the recruiting cycle. Normally we are not part of the conversation with these type of recruits even with an offer, so 247 put the recruit on our page. Not sure if it is new found respect from 247 or if this is a demonstration of the types of conversations Fleck is getting. Either way looks like it could be a fun recruiting year.

I haven't followed our offer lists in the past but it does feel like we are in on a lot of higher level recruits then has been the case traditionally.

The Gophers seem to be getting more amd more higher three star athletes.

Offensive line recruiting is very competitive. There are not very many four star athletes available after most of them are gobled up by the upper tier P5 programs. The Gophers have to develop their own four stars. Ergo, IMO it will be nice to get three OL recruits each year for such an important position.

The Gophers Offense started improving when the O-line play started improving. Getting both Faalele and Dunlap was a major recruiting victory for the Gophers. I don't ever recall the Gophers getting two four star offensive linemen on the same recruiting class before that.

It takes two or three years of development for offensive linemen to be Big Ten ready. The Gophers need to cover loses due to attrition. I'd like to see a minimum of fifteen or sixteen O-linemen on the roster both scholarship players and PWOs.

Missouri offered Eastern last night. According to Burns, Missouri, Wisconsin and Iowa are recruiting him hard right now.

Man I hope we're bringing in good OL guys because even if there was improvement ... I feel like Morgan's absolute fearlessness still made that OL look way better than it was. Anyone else back there and we would have piled up a lot more Ls and we would be saying different things about the OL.

Personally I'm ready for an all OL crooting year.... /s ... /s

Hope he sticks with the home team. Nothing better than being a home town hero. His physical, potential looks awesome.
