Somebody has to tell the MN D-backs that when a receiver has the ball in his hands out away from his body, that ripping one entire arm off the ball works in removing the ball - and your hands are usually inside the receiver's arms, giving you about a ten to one strength advantage on his arm stopping opening vs your rolling or pulling it open with your back muscles. And he will either drop the ball or break his other arm coming down... MN let them have at least two of the early TDs trying to punch the ball out on the air instead of using the DB's advantage. Just sayin'

It seemed like every 50/50 play and every 50/50 call went Michigan's way. Frustrating to watch. I remember Myron Metcalf saying, when he covered the Gophers' basketball team, that the strangest thing he saw during his years here, was that Minnesota teams never get calls, even at home. In anything.

"Stoudermire returned three kickoffs for a total of 71 yards, giving him 3,359 kick-return yards for his career. That leaves him 158 yards shy of the NCAA record of 3,517 yards, set by Tyron Carrier of Houston last year." The Gophers keep giving up scores and they keep kicking off to your team. Not such a great record to own.

The officiating was iffy at best in this game, but it was not the reason we lost. That play Stoudemire was talking about was a bad one, though; it was an incompletion. However, a good team can overcome most bad officiating, and the Gophers could not do that in this game. A bit more variation in run play-calling would have been far more helpful, along with some shorter passes to build confidence and move the ball, rather than the home-run throws that Nelson and the receivers were never on the same page for. Take the lessons from this game, both coaches and players, and move one to beat the Illini and become bowl-eligible. Keep improving, Gophers!
