2020 Football Season

Recommended Posts

Morning paper: MN Gopher athletics could see $75 M hit from Coronavirus. The U’s athletic spending was $129M 2018 to 2019 season.  Best case scenario would be -$10M, moderate loss -$30M, and severe would be -$75M. 
Don’t know how this compares to UND.... scary times....

For anyone who subscribes to ESPN + .....  This is a good watch.  Nick Saban breaks down Burrow vs Clemson, but think about the defenders as you watch.  Offense knows the play, QB knows pre-snap read and coverage or hot route.  Defense is reacting to what everyone else already knows..

It is nice but it would be nice to see more names especially when you see schools like Augie and Duluth with more. 

Grambling with 6.  NDSU with 4.  Sure glad we avoid Grambling this year.

Just saw that Blubaugh is in the transfer portal.

Damn I wish he would stay.  I imagine he would lose playing time with Holm and CJ starting.

Dang.  He is a really solid CB.  Wishful thinking he decides to stay but wish him well.  He brings a lot of toughness to that position.

We're talking about Blubaugh, right?

Thats a bummer, but a position that we are pretty deep at I believe. A lot of young talent, and more coming in too.

Asking a lot out of a young kid playing man coverage all the time in our defense.  He’s tackled pretty well since he’s been a Tfr and has made some plays in his time here.  We were getting to a good spot with CB depth.

You've gotta be confusing him with another player.

You and I watched two different players last year.

We can agree to disagree.  It’s all good.  

I think he’s a better player than what he showed last year.  I’d argue we didnt have a single corner last year that was consistently impressive all season.  They all had their moments.  I’m no DC but we out our CBs on an island a lot.  When you don’t get home, you are getting beat.  I appreciate what he did in his time here.  Stepped in and played decent as a TFr when he wasn’t ready.  It was a huge improvement over the CB play of 5 years ago.

Jeremy Jenkins is also looking to transfer.

I recall the first time I saw him get off the bus with the team before a game. He's a giant. I only knew it was him as he went to a family member and he had a Jenkins shirt.

Great frame. I was hoping he’d put the rest of it together.

I agree with you, I'd much have him stay on the roster this year.  He did get thrown in as a true frosh before he was ready, has made a lot of improvement since then.  Sometimes I think he loses focus a little bit however.  From going from a starter to a backup your senior year, that wouldn't be fun for any player.  I hope he stays, but I can kind of see why he might want to leave.  Grass often looks greener on the other side. I think he should finish out his college career as a Fighting Hawk though.   Fortunately we do have some nice young talent and depth now at this position.

Did I read he had "2 years to play 1" would that make sense to another DI team? Might be a better fit for a high level DII team?
