The Tracy Claeys era can officially begin as he looks to lead the Golden Gophers to prominence in the Big Ten. Jay Johnson takes over an offense that was horrific in the conference last year, scoring only 22.5 points per game.
The offensive line should be very impressive with a couple of junior college transfers. Defensively, they should be just fine as they return much of their secondary that 11th in the country in pass defense.
Prediction: 8-4 (5-4), Outback Bowl
