    2022 Minnesota Bowl Projection Tracker

    If we remain undefeated through the Penn State game, we'll be 7-0. Only then will Palm likely elevate us to the Reliaquest (formerly Outback) Bowl or, if he has a sudden burst of generosity, maybe the Citrus Bowl. Of all the major prognosticators, Palm seems the most wedded to the notion that...

    2022 Minnesota Bowl Projection Tracker

    I would agree with you. However, if we have two losses with one of them being in the championship game, we'd have a pretty fair shot at the Orange Bowl which would be a nice consolation.

    Mark Coyle is headed to Chicago after Saturday’s game to meet with fellow Big Ten ADs to determine football schedules for the 2023 season.

    Well, I hope they do since I wasn't looking forward to OSU, Michigan, and Michigan State as our crossover teams along with UNC away in a season where we will have an inexperienced QB leading the team. I believe Athan has the tools but mental confidence, poise, and judgement usually take a...

    Tanner Morgan has never looked like this.

    There's a sports cliche you've probably heard before: "the game has slowed down" for him. Some insights about that phenomena: Physiologically, this phenomenon exists. The game appears slower due to the amount of information being processed by the brain at an enhanced rate. It’s speculated by...

    Tanner Morgan has never looked like this.

    I hope not. I like it this way better.

    Tanner Morgan has never looked like this.

    I said that we "may not" have two NFL wide receivers. I didn't say that we would not. I suspect that Johnson and Bateman were already being discussed by NFL scouts by this time in 2019. They already had started a full year together in 2018. I certainly don't think Bateman was drafted in the...

    Tanner Morgan has never looked like this.

    Although he had multiple great games in 2019, Tanner is a more complete player now. As you've you said, he's reading the defense better and targeting more receivers. You would expect that with additional experience and maturity. He's also doing more with his legs in key spots now. We may not...

    What grade would you give Tanner Morgan in the Big Ten opener?

    Better than 2019. As good as he was that year, he is more focused, confident, and composed this season. He is also making plays with his feet so far this season. That's something he didn't do very often in 2019.

    Gophs #1 in nation 3rd down conversion; #3 in fewest penalties per game

    I thought they were a bit at first (especially with the Brockington call) but then they evened them out.

    Who is your Gophers MVP in the ass whopping of MSU?

    If I had to single out someone I would say Tanner but whenever your offense has a great game, the QB has an MVP advantage because he is involved in every play. He's been great but I don't want to pick him in every good offensive game we have.

    Who is your Gophers MVP in the ass whopping of MSU?

    Who was complaining (at least among Gopher fans)? Now, he still might not have the respect he deserves against opposing team fans, but isn't that usually the case (unless you're an Ohio State QB)?

    Who is your Gophers MVP in the ass whopping of MSU?

    I think he was joking - or at least I hope he was.

    Where will Minnesota be ranked?

    I liked when they faced the camera and yelled at the poll voters - "You better rank this team! This is a very good football team!"

    Where will Minnesota be ranked?

    It's only 4 games into the season but right now I think this team is better than the 2019 team. I say that for the following reasons: 1) The defense is better on this team. The Gophers were a Top 10 defense last season and this year the defense has continued on that path. The defense was...

    Where will Minnesota be ranked?

    If CBS sports ranks us #24, then I expect we'll be higher than that on the AP poll. Of the major sports services, they seem to me to be the least charitable towards us.
