Gophers Undefeated, But Coach Sees Plenty Of Room For Improvement

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have started their season with consecutive wins, but that doesn't mean head coach Jerry Kill is completely happy about his team's performance. He's certainly pleased, of course, but sees plenty of room for improvement.

Kill talked about his team's performance against New Hampshire with the Pioneer Press, noting multiple things that didn't go quite the way he had planned.

"We have a young offensive group," he said Sunday. "Most people are trying to find their timing and execution. We're not clean there. If you're clean, you don't drop a couple shotgun snaps and we have to punt the ball. There's so much precision (needed) on offense."

"I didn't feel like we blocked particularly well in the backfield in this particular game," Kill said. "And I think we missed some cuts in the running game. I think as a running back group, we probably played better in the first game."

Things likely aren't going to get better than a 44-7 victory, but it's nice to see the effort.
