per STrib:

The pandemic isn't keeping newsmagazine shows from making the trip to Minneapolis.

North High School and its football coach Charles Adams III will be featured on the 27th season premiere of "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel," airing 9 p.m. Tuesday on HBO.

"60 Minutes" recently aired segments examining cuts to the University of Minnesota's gymnastics program and the role St. Paul's "In the Dark" podcast played in the Curtis Flowers case.

In the new edition of "Real Sports," correspondent Jon Frankel looks at how Adams and fellow Minneapolis police officers built trust with the teenagers in the wake of George Floyd's murder.


Go Gophers!!

The athletes have always been there. Now they have a coaching staff that can convince the kids to stay home and develop there skills. Great job.

Doing this same thing in hoops to.

it kind of shows if you get strong leadership in places you can do it anywhere.

how do we get strong leadership in more places?
Would be good for the gophers if the city schools all produced athletes like north does.
Probably lose a lot of kids that could be scholarship types due to lack of structure in some of their local programs.

You can’t tell me Henry, St. Paul central, etc don’t have athletes good enough to play big time college ball. But many of those programs are just not put together enough to get those athletes participating.

easier Said than done but would be awesome if every city school could make progress
