Going through a box of Gopher stuff, I came across the Auburn game edition of the Strib, in which Simon is praised: "made a strong case for himself" as new OC..."did a masterful job of keeping Auburn's defense off-balance"..."Gophers established ideal balance" in running and passing..."Matt Simon called a tremendous game, Fleck said"..."Simon received universal praise from coaches, players and also Auburn's side"..."Their coaches had a super game plan," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. They executed it."

The Gophers ran up 494 yards against the 10th ranked Tigers, holding them to 232; had 23 first downs to 13; TOP 37:35 to 22:25; Tyler Johnson had 12 catches for 204 yards and 2 TDs, Morgan 19 of 29 for 278 yards; Mo carried 20 times for 140 yards.

Simon had a month to plan and it was one game against a non-conference opponent. We'll see what Fleck does once early signing day has passed.

Simon also might not want to be an OC, we don't know.
