We have had some terrible Monday's in recent weeks as Gopher fans. But this one isn't all that terrible, mostly because of the way Gopher Football went out and dominated the Illini on Saturday. It also helps that my fantasy football teams won yesterday too but that is another story.
The story of today is going to be the status of Trevor Mbakwe's knee. J.B. Bauer posted on GopherHole that Tubby said "it ain't good."
MRI today and as soon as we know anything we'll get it up on TDG with some opinion on the results.
- Kim Royston earned co-Defensive Player of the Week honors for his 13 tackles and one sack on Saturday.
- Gopher fans know we finished with a solid win, from Illinois' perspective it was a total flop.
- We moved up in the ESPN B1G Blog power rankings. 10th place after what we endured in the middle stretch of the season is higher than I thought we'd finish.
- It is Black Monday for college football coaches. Illinois fired Ron Zook, Kansas fired
KendalTurner Gill (after 2 years) and Arizona State fired Dennis Erickson. More to come I'm sure.
- Usually I feel like I'm the first to start looking ahead to next season, but Doogie beat me to it. He goes position by position looking at Gopher Football 2012.
- Gopher Hockey went 0-1-1vs. Michigan State this weekend losing on Friday and managing a tie on Saturday.
