The University of Minnesota football team and the Goal Line Club celebrated the 2012 season with its annual awards banquet Sunday afternoon at the Hilton Hotel in Minneapolis.
The Gopher football team went back to work on Monday, but without their head coach. The Gophers were left to figure out how they let a home game against one of the worst teams in NCAA Division I football get away from them and drop to 0-2 on the season.
This has been a lingering weakness for the Gophers, who face New Mexico State this Saturday in their home opener. Sacks weren’t kept as official statistic until the 1980s, but since then only four players have finished with more than eight sacks in one season.
