Golden Nugz 05-16-14 - Friday Nugz Heading into the Weekend

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The weekend is here and it is almost going to be nice out, I guess we should just be thankful that it won't be snowing.  A few Nugz to get you through the Friday workday.

I will lead with Bill Connlly's preview of the the 2014 Gopher Football team.  This is just great stuff from one of SB Nation's best writers.

In Kill's second season, Minnesota went from bad to mediocre.

In his third, the Gophers went from mediocre to solid.

And with exciting youth and a seasoned line on offense, along with one of the conference's better pass rushers and secondaries on defense, they could be poised for a third straight year of measurable improvement. What does that mean for the win-loss record? Not sure.

There are a lot of advanced stats and a mention of the golden years of Gopher QBs, aka the Adam Weber glory days.  If you read only one link from today's Nugz, this is the one to read.

Have a good weekend.
