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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
