I am glad that all of my talk about Gopher football has spawned others to start thinking about next season – I know it’s a long way off, but I just can’t help it – I love Gopher football and hockey and basketball – in that order. Even though the Gopher Basketball team is on fire right now and one of the best teams we have had since the Clem Haskins era (remember we aren’t allowed to talk or count those games) – I still prefer football.
I predicted a 7 win Gopher Football Season in 2009. Blogger H*Dizzle said:
ps i thnk we'll be better than seven wins. we will have decker back.and weber if he doesnt get beat out by marquies gray..omg we have depth at QB!
I agree we have depth at QB, but with only ONE RECEIVER (plus, I heard a vicious rumor that Eric Decker may not even play next year because he doesn’t want to ruin his baseball career with another injury – he is amazing at baseball, too.) and a poor running game, I don’t see the Gopher offense putting that many points on the board and the Gopher defense is still going to be mediocre – we need bigger guys. I hope Brewster can convince one or two big players to sign for defense or even transfer from a junior college.
