The Gophers quarterback didn't dodge blame, saying it would have been his fault had they lost to UNLV.

Well, it's nice to know he's not blaming the wind. Hopefully it was just first game jitters, but that looked like a familiar struggle.

Like everyone else, I want Gray and the Gophers to succeed, but this looks and sounds like last year. What will the excuses be for the first home opener? Bringing practice and potential to the games are totally different, just ask Gardy. Blackburn and Liriano struggled all year. If Gray struggles again, make the change, so Shortell gets time in before the Big 10.

How can he not own up to them? They were as clear as day!

The fact is ... he's not a Freshman, he's a Senior. I agree with tkarlen ..Grey is a receiver, not a QB

#14 Isaac Fruechte, he will be the fastest man on the field this Saturday. New Hampshire is a slow team, get the ball to Fruechte and it will be a big win. If MG doesn't get it done in the first half move on to the next guy.

This kid can't pass. He will never get any better. Earth to Kill-get a QB in there and put Gray at RB where he belongs--sheeesh!

I don't see any indications that Gray is going to be a good passing QB. He's a big strong athletic kid, but his passing leaves a lot to be desired. And he's only been above 56% completion 3 times? That's awful, especially when the bulk of his passes are in the 0-10 yard range. Even then he throws behind the receiver or low, rarely in stride. His medium to long range passes are atrocious. You can't miss wide open WRs for walk in TDs as a senior Big Ten QB. Those are throws a pop warner QB can complete. I've been much more impressed with Shortell as a passer, even when he struggles. Gray would be much better suited as a WR and/or a goal line/wildcat QB. Beating bad teams in triple OT is not an indication of progress and/or maturity. I hope Kill will make the call to Shortell if Gray continues to struggle and we are barely beating non-conference scrubs..
