Hartman: Gophers have more, better running backs

Not having enough healthy backs limited the U offense a year ago; now there's competition for playing time.

What? So the Wolves traded down giving up Roy for Foye, didn't get $1 million for doing so, but made the trade because Ray had bad knee's? Seems stupid to me... Why not just draft the guy you want in the first place, the NBA draft is such a circus operation...

I am looking forward to Gophers Football this year. They have some nice new classic looking uniforms and their roster looks much improved. Kill sure seems to know what he is doing in every way. 6 wins is definately possible this yr and from there hopefully the staff can recruit more blue chips.

I wish the lads well and hope that they can improve on last season and certainly improve over the wasted Brewster years. On the other hand, they will have to show us long suffering fans of such improvement beginning on August 30 in Sin City. If they struggle once again in non-conference play, it will be just another wait until next year deal once again. Saying all of the right things and then delivering on them are two very different things.

YOUR COMMENTS ON ROY AND THE RANSOM GAINED IN THE LIRIANO TRADE ARE MUCH APPRECIATED. YOU ARE STILL SHARPER THAN PEOPLE GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR.
