Minnesota Golden Gopher Football 2014 Preview

As I type this the day before kickoff of the Gopher football season. I’m not ready for Fall yet… but being on campus today and taking a walk by helped get me in the mood.

And we have this weeks Brick by Brick, “Chasing Dreams”:

Coach Kill… he’s a good man and a good coach.

So to the question I have been asked more the past few weeks other than, “How is the fishing?” is “Gophers, what do you think?”

And I don’t know.

I think we have a more talented team than last year’s (2013) 8-5 team.

We have a few players on preseason “watch lists”:

We also have a more difficult schedule:

Without getting in the weeds by position I think our defense is better than last year and clearly the secondary is the strength. I don’t think I have ever said that in my Gopher fan life.

While losing Ra'Shede Hageman to graduation leaves really big shoes to fill I think our DL is OK enough. And the LB’s are as good as last year, maybe better.

Offense has a question mark at QB. Maybe not so much with Mitch Leidner as the starter but after him. From all accounts Leidner had a good spring practice and the obvious team leader as fall started.

RB’s and TE’s we have a bunch of guys ready to go. WR’s are young… really young.

My thought… we go 8-4 or 7-5 and win the bowl game this year.

While a lateral in terms of wins, if we can maintain that with this schedule and add in a good recruiting class… for sure Gopher football will turn the corner.
