Gophers defense preparing for 'tremendous challenge' of facing Ohio State offense | FOX Sports

"Before that, though, Claeys and his defense will have their hands full trying to slow down an Ohio State offense that is seemingly unstoppable. Since losing 35-21 in their second game of the season, the Buckeyes have scored 49 or more points in six of their last seven contests. By comparison, Minnesota has topped the 49-point mark just six times over the last 10 seasons."  -Tyler Mason

Q: Who will the family members root for?
Rick: Well, Joanne [his wife, Richard's mother]... will sit behind [Richard's] bench, Michael [another son] will sit behind mine and Chris [another son] will go to the highest bidder.
Richard: So many people make a big deal about where Mike and Chris are sitting. I think they care more about who they're going to celebrate with after the game. That's more important to them.

Q: By now, you both know each other so well. What's the difference maker?
Rick: He knows we're going to try to do some different things. We have never played a Triangle and Two [defense], he will not be ready. But we have to play it. Their backcourt is something that must be stopped and I'm going to try it for the first time in my coaching career.

Q: Do you believe him?
Richard: No, I do not.
