Ratings Explained:
110 - 101 = Franchise Player. One of the best players to come along in years, if not decades. Odds of having a player in this category every year is slim. This prospect has "canít miss" talent.

100 - 98 = Five-star prospect. One of the top 30 players in the nation. This player has excellent pro-potential and should emerge as one of the best in the country before the end of his career.

97 - 90 = Four-star prospect. One of the top 300 players in the nation. This prospect will be an impact-player for his college team. He is an All-American candidate who displays pro-potential.

89 - 80 = Three-star prospect. One of the top 10% players in the nation. This player will develop into a reliable starter for his college team and is among the best players in his region of the country.

79 - below = Two-star prospect. This player makes up the bulk of Division I rosters. He may have little pro-potential, but is likely to become a role player for his respective school.

This team is getting better and better each snap. Huge win for the program. Maintaining a winning formula after beating Nebraska. This program has turned the corner and it's ready to compete in the B1G.

Ski-U-Mah!! Applause

Another big win for the gophers. Playing some very solid football.

One of the most underrated defenses in the conference and finally finding an offense that really works for us. Getting the job done on both sides of the ball.

Good game you guys.
Man to man, you just whipped us today. What your coaching staff has done with the team this year is fantastic and I'm rooting hard for you guys the rest of the way.
Best of luck, Gophers.
PS-Thanks for breaking that awful trophy after the game Laughing

Strong possibility Gophers make it inside the Top 25 after the bye week, if not tomorrow. Notre Dame and Texas Tech losses really helped today. Dancing


S/O from Brewster:

@TimBrewster
I am so genuinely happy for Gopher team and fans!! Nobody deserves a winner more!! #WhipWisconsin!!

The best thing about this season is that we are built to sustain the success. We lose key contributors in Hageman, Vereen, and Engel but this team is winning with a lot of underclassmen.

They should have a good finish to the 2014 class, but the 2015 class is what I'm most excited about. Our current success is already impacting our 2015 class as we've got significant interest from four 4* offensive lineman. Minnesota will have a full class, they will be able to sign about 25 guys. With the foundation already set, adding 25 guys with this coaching staff is going to be monumental in the progression of this program. Ski-U-Mah!!

Am I the only one that thinks that Eric Murray is quickly becoming our best CB. We had him lined up on Robinson all game and he shut him down (as far as shutting Robinson down goes). This kid is quickly becoming a stud.

One thing that I would like the staff to do is to hit the JUCO's for a DB. Lots of questions, unless they think Boddy-Calhoun comes back at full strength. If that is the case we have BBC, Murray and Wells, which isn't too bad, in fact it could be great, I just question if BBC will be full strength by next year.

I guess we have Myrick who could be a player, but I think we have to get a corner in this class

Minnesota needs at least 2 corners in this cycle. Personally, I hope Ced Thompson is moved to a rotational role and Wells is moved back to Safety. Wells was on his way to being an All Conference safety but hasn't looked the best at CB.

As for Murray, the kid is a stud. I'm simply amazed at how this staff finds talent. Looking at Wells' and Murray's high school tape, there isn't anything special about them. Michael Carter was good for us last year but I believe Murray will be one of the best CBs to ever come through.

We are recruiting multiple 2* or 3* RBs from down south. I wonder if Kill wants to bring in as many athletic guys as he can, even if they prefer offense, with the intention of switching them to DB. Just gotta get the best athletes you can perhaps?

Has to be. Our Top 3 backs are all back next season plus the addition of Berk Edwards. Add a Jeff Jones and one other back and you're set. We're the favorites for Gregory Howell and Deron Thompson, and J'Vonte Herrod is basically commited. All three will be at the Wisconsin game. Both Howell and Herrod have size to move to Safety or Linebacker.
