New coach Ben Johnson has had a terrible start to his term as HC. They went 13-17 last year (4-16 in the Big10), and 7-17 (1-13 Big 10) this year. He was supposed to be a great recruiter, but missed on some key guys for this years team and now his key recruit for next year, Dennis Evans, wants out of his letter of intent. The Ben Johnson era might be over before it began at the U. I was rooting for him, but they are terrible and no help is on the way. They need to bring in a coach that develops players, because you are just not going to get top recruits at the U. At least not until the program gets reestablished. Any real relevance from the Gophers during the Clem era is further and further away.
