Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill has decided not to implement a no-huddle style offense after utilizing during spring practices and again in fall camps, according to reports from Andy Grader at PioneerPress.com.
“We experimented with it a little,” Kill said. “We’ve been a huddle team; that’s who we are.”
The Gophers open its season against a TCU team, ranked 2nd in the American Press Poll, that runs a deadly no-huddle offensive system. Minnesota offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover says he used the no-huddle style of offense in practice to help the defense.
“That’s been strictly something to help our defense prepare for a very good TCU offense,” Limegrover said.
It will be a very tough task for Kill and the Gopher defense to slow down TCU’s no-huddle attack. TCU gained an average of 533 yards per game, amounting to 46.5 points per game.
Minnesota play host to the TCU Horned Frogs on Thursday Sept. 3 at 8 p.m.
