Sid, I think we're all pleased the Gophers won their opener, but there are valid reasons to critique the performance, and even Kill acknowledges them. I for one am pleased to see fans who still care enough to weigh in on a middling performance. Regarding Ponder, it looks like Spielman is laying the groundwork for extending CP's audition to a fourth year by alluding to Eli Manning's career. The big difference, of course, is that Manning was a #1 draft pick, and Ponder was a projected 2nd rounder who was drafted far, far ahead of where he should have been.

Gophers have poor running game, lower level college receivers and cheat on defense which allows opposing running backs long runs if they can just get past the line of scrimmage.

After listening to Kill on the radio, I have concerns. I always thought he told it like it is but he was making excuses, minimizing the mistakes the team made, and saying that he needs another recruiting year in order to be more competitive. I thought hard work made you competitive. Not sure I like the new Kill. As an example he did not think the pass defense was that bad as they try not to give up the big play. Hey Jerry, when the opposing QB can hit 70% of his passes against you, your pass defense has problems.

Was at the game.... Spent most of the game shaking my head... Looked like subpar coaching and subpar talent... Look for plenty of empty seats once the real season begins... This quality of entertainment didn't need a new stadium... Maybe we should move down to division 2....
