:shock: That Defense! 2 fumbles, 2 INTs

:appl: Really got to hand it to Jerry Kill and his staff. Future looks bright.

Jerry Kill and his staff did a great job at Northern Illinois. I suspect he'll do likewise in Minnesota.

Yeah we stunk it up a bit. But we are getting better. I just hope that we can get two more wins.

The Gophers will not go to a Bowl Game. They are done, just like with Brewster.

Quote:
Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague graduated from the University of North Carolina, so he is well aware of his alma mater's reputation as a basketball school.

Apparently, Teague and Jerry Kill operate under the assumption that the Tar Heels suddenly are a football powerhouse, too.

The Gophers backed out of their home-and-home series with North Carolina in 2013-14 in favor of trying to find a lesser opponent. The kicker is even more of a doozy: The Gophers paid North Carolina $800,000 to cancel the series. That's right, an athletic department that struggles to make budget every year is forking over $800,000 to avoid playing North Carolina.
That would be comical if it weren't so pathetic.

We're not talking about canceling a game against Alabama. Or Southern California. Or even South Carolina.


I am done with Gopher football until Jerry Kill is fired. What a tool. He must have hit his head on the floor too many times during his seizures or something because he has completely lost it. What an embarrassment to the BigTen Conference. You would never see Wisconsin, Ohio State, or even Northwestern pull this kind of stunt.

3 out of our 4 non-conference games this year were against BCS conference schools (and we went 3-0 in those games). For the next 4 years, we play at least 2 BCS schools a year. With this backout, the Gophers play none, with those 2 dates open, so at best they could play 1 each the next 2 years. The next time they'll face a non-conference BCS team is 2017-18 with a home-and-home with Oregon State.

Pathetic.

If they don't back out of that one too. It is an embarrassment to the Big Ten.

It's pathetic. It's odd too, since when Kill was at NIU they played opponents that were "out of their league". Maybe that philosophy was a holdover from the previous era, where coach Joe Novak built NIU from a sad football program into a very competitive, Bowl-worthy team. Novak used games against high-profile opponents to help raise the profile of his program. Kill did a good job as his successor but news like this makes me glad he's gone, especially since current coach Dave Doeren has done what Kill couldn't: win Bowls game and a MAC Championship. :)

This news certainly changes the way I view Jerry Kill.

Gophers are sad. Glen Mason had a 32-48 Big Ten record in ten seasons. Teague & Kill are stating they need to climb a mountain to get to where Mason was. I am not sure whether to laugh or cry. Go Gophers!

Jerry Kill had another seizure suring the game yesterday.
I think this is becoming a distraction to the team. Clearly her is in over his head and he can't handle the pressure. They need to get rid of him at the end of the season. I wish him good health, but heariung about a seizure after every loss is getting old.

Well, I have to congratulate the Gophers on having a better season than Iowa. I have never seen a more pathetic season from Iowa in my entire life. :(
