Reigning Big Ten Coach of the Year Jerry Kill took a squad with low expectations last year to an 8-4 record and looks to do even more this year despite some big offensive losses. TE Maxx Williams and RB David Cobb are the biggest. The playmakers led an offense of over 28 points per game, which is almost sure to decline as the unit figures out who’s next up. Quarterback Mitch Leidner returns under a new no-huddle offensive strategy that looks to take the pressure off the new linemen. It’s a risky strategy but one that could work with precise route running and timing. The defense is a strength behind All-Big Ten cornerbacks Eric Murray and Briean Boddy-Calhoun and an improving defensive line. The group is adept at forcing turnovers but could use more pressure on the quarterback. Still, the offense is the question here, and they’ll be put to the test immediately with a primetime home game against TCU in Week 1. The Minnesota Golden Gophers operate under head coach Jerry Kill at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. They are historically one of the better college football programs but didn’t do much between the 60s and 2000s. Since 1999, however, they’ve made 12 bowl appearances and have fielded some more competitive teams but have won more than eight games just once. Last season they lost the Citrus Bowl to #16 Missouri. In recent years they’ve sent Brock Vereen, Eric Decker, Matt Spaeth, Marion Barber, Ben Hamilton, and Spurgeon Wynn to the NFL for a grand total of 240 all-time. Defensive end Carl Eller, a dominant Hall of Fame Viking in the 1960s and 70s, is their greatest former player. In TCF Bank the Golden Gophers finally have a great permanent home after years in the Metrodome, and they’ve got a massive student body behind them. As one of the historic Big Ten teams, Minnesota has long shared rivalries with Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and has recently revived one with Nebraska’s move to the Big Ten in 2011. 2015 home opponents include TCU, Kent State, Ohio, Nebraska, Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin.
