So Kaler and Teague get to bask in the glory that they did little or nothing to create. This season belongs totally to the players, not to University higher-ups whose policies over the years has kept the football program in a state of more-or-less permanent emasculation.

As difficult as it was to watch the Gophers beat my Huskers, I was certainly impressed by teamwork, identity, and perseverance of coach Kill's squad. What they may lack in raw talent, they more than make up for in motivation and coaching. Wish them nothing but success in their remaining games.

Unlike your sports page columnist, Mr Souhan, the editorial board acknowledges the success of the Gopher FB program so far this season. Their record is not tainted due to opponents weaknesses, but a testament to the coaches and this year's student-athletes' on field performances. Saturday's game against the Badgers should be a 'humdinger' with future recruiting successes for both programs and the pride of the "Ax" caretaker for 2013-2014 as stakes. GO GOPHERS!

A bigger step would be for this board to call out Souhan directly.
