Gophers need a new defensive coordinator

5 posts in this topic

Everett Withers left for an assistant job in North Carolina, despite being one of the game's highest paid assistant coaches. The U's director of football operations Randy Taylor also has left.

The Speculation is that Nebraska's former defensive coordinator, that got fired by Osborne so fast his head spun, is expected to be offered the job. I sure as heck hope that isn't true. Brewster better find someone that can coach now that he has some athletes coming in. That Nebraska defense was putrid, not unlike the Gophers this past year.

Ha! I hadn't heard that Kevin Cosgrove might come to MN. If I were a die-hard Gopher fan, my lip would be starting to quiver and I'd be looking for a place to quietly sob to myself.

Nebraska's defense was a strong unit up until Cosgrove took over the DC spot. Check into Wisconsin's history, too. You won't like Cosgrove. Defenses look good both before and after he is there, but not during.

Granted, Nebraska plays in the Big 12, which is a tougher conference than the Big 10. But there is no excuse for allowing that many points, that many yards, that many losses.

Man, if that's true... I'm really sorry, Gopher fans. Really sorry.

Ted Roof is the new defensive coordinator for the Gophers. He came from Duke which has an illustrious history, just not in football.

Did some reading about this guy though, and he may be alright. More recently he was the head coach of Duke where he didn't progress things all that well. Prior to that though, he seems to have been a pretty decent defensive coordinator. He used to coach the Ramblin Reck of Georgia Tech where he was nominated as the nation's top assistant coach. As I recall those Georgia Tech teams had some pretty good defenses. I'm kind of a Homer though, so time will tell.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
