    Highwater Mark For Metro Football Playes in the Big Ten?

    Six metro players made 1st, 2nd or 3rd-team all Big Ten. Certainly the highest number that I can recall. Have there been other years with such strong metro representation? Minneapolis North - Tyler Johnson (1st Team/2nd Team) Park Center - Amani Hooker (1st Team) Eden Prairie - Carter...

    The Conference Schedule This Year Was Not Easier Than 1999 or 2003

    1999, 2003, 2014 and 2016 are the last 4 times the Gophers have won 5 conference games in a season. For those that think this year isn't a substantial accomplishment because the Gophers had an easy conference schedule, the same could be said of 1999 and 2003. There is scant difference between...

    More on BT Championship Turnarounds

    The other thread on turnarounds was interesting, so I took the idea back to 1960. For coaches who started in the Big Ten since 1960, i.e. the last 50 years, if they were ever going to win a Big Ten championship, it usually happened by year 4, though there are 2 YR 5s, and 1 Yr 6. If Brew...

    Gopher FB Versus Iowa BB

    Iowa BB, with an experienced HC is what the bottom looks like. Gopher FB, with the recruiting-driven TB, is what a poised-to-improve program looks like (even if I have my doubts about TB). The near total lack of talent on the Iowa BB team stands in stark contrast to the young talent on the...
