Hiring AD Mark Coyle was huge...Minny hasn't had a competent AD in decades...and from what Fleck said today, Coyle was a big reason why he took the job.

As of tonight, six WMU verbals have been offered and flipped to the Gophers.

Yes. Three things that are very disturbing:

-- 21 of 27 called passes. That's Air Raid stuff.

-- Urban not knowing that the offense was so out of whack; and

-- Straying so far away from the game plan in the first half of a competitive game.

Downhill running has been the foundation of this offense for five years. Beginning in 2015, the offense became less of a system and more just a grab bag of plays. The disappearance of counter plays in 2016 is an example of how the offensive system of 2012-2014 was discarded. Tonight was the complete abandonment of anything that looked like a system.

Tracy Claeys will be gone after this season. He's clearly in over his head. New AD didn't hire Claeys. Attendance is bad (Iowa game wasn't a sellout). And the buyout for Claeys is small

Kinnick Stadium is another place where there isn't much room between the field and the stands.

I think you're right.

Who was our first soccer-style kicker? I don't know the answer...was it Tom Klaban?
