Gopher Football Outlook

National Champs.net does an early college football preview – check out their take on the Gophers…don’t want to read the article? Here are the top points:

“Brewster would be well advised to stick around in Minneapolis for this third season, especially with 19 starters back in the fold.”

“Closing the season the way Minnesota did should not put a major damper on things to come. They are still taking small steps, and the next ones may be good enough for a possible nine-win season.”

I agree that a nine win season could be possible next year, but we have to see major, MAJOR improvements in the running game (our key running backs will be one year older, but is that major major?) and better defense. I am actually going to predict another 7 win season – we play a lot of tough Big 10 road games next year (Penn State, Ohio State, Iowa – we can’t even beat these teams at home)!

Brewster's done a good job at moving this team in the right direction. I don't think he's going to go anywhere after quite possibly setting them up for one of their best seasons in a long time.

he scheduled USC for future showdowns...im kinda scared but if we keep improving...maturi needs to give that guy a raisse

Cortney said...
