Hard to believe we've lost to a 2nd tier program like Becky 9 straight years. They got the Axe but will never sniff a national title in football, lol!

I wish Coach Kill all the luck in the world. Minnesota football is a mess!

Only in Minnesota is there a postive sounding headline like "despite freshman QB poise, Gophers lose". Really? We are supposed to be happy the new QB had poise while the team got their butts kicked? Go Goofers! Poise points. They lost, but they lost with poise. This program IS turning around.

I thought the defense held the Wisconsin runners in check until just before the end of the first half and then it seemed like we forgot how to tackle and never made the adjustments to counter whatever they did to open up the big holes. Disappointing.

Sure would have been nice if the game had been televised on a channel that most people get. The Big Ten Network didn't even carry a game in this area.

Where were the linebackers? Where is the tackling, go back to basics and teach how to tackle. Stoudemire was the only defensive player that is a high caliber player.
