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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
