Big Ten team preview...Minnesota

Sign in to follow this  


I really like Adam Weber as a quarterback, he's got some tools and could be an NFL prospect. He's got a nice arm, and is pretty accurate. Minnesota has improved their roster so much over the past two years, they should be in the 2nd tier, with bowl eligibility an expectation, not just a goal. They've got a nice sprinkling of NFL caliber talent, with WR Eric Decker (who runs really good routes), DE Willie Van Der Steeg, LB Deon Hightower, and RB's Duane Bennett and Deleon Eskridge. The Gophers have the 6th toughest schedule in the nation, and they definitely have the toughest in conference schedule. Tim Brewster is a terrific coach, and this team is on the rise. Prediction- 8-4

I don't see eight wins. I'll give you Syracuse and Air Force. Cal has the edge, I have to give it to them. A win at Northwestern, Wisconsin is a push. Win vs Purdue on homecoming. After losses to PSU and OSU, I say they go 2-2 over the last four at best. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that they can split State and Illinois, and they lose on the road at Iowa. South Dakota State is a bye week.

That gives them six wins, maybe seven with Wisconsin. Good enough for a bowl game.
