Favorite Gopher football player

Favorite Gopher football player 


Who is your favorite player who has played for the Gophers since you became a fan? Why?

Who is your favorite current player? why?

My favorite Gopher is Tyrone Carter.  I thought he was a great player and he also went on to have a nice NFL career.  I also like the fact that he was a DB who won the Thorpe award on a team that was not generally renowned for defense.

My favorite current player is Cedric Thompson.  I like the whole story of how he grew up and I like the way he plays the game.

Greg Eslinger but there are really way to many to come up with.  but Greg was one of those guys that just dominated when we had guys like MBIII and Larry running all types of yards against even the best of the best.  he led the up front guys without much recognition

Currently?  i am having a hard time picking just one that stands out above the rest.  I would like to take an offensive scoring position player but all of ours are too young to really be totally fanatic over.  defensively i think we have a great bunch of brown baggers.  guys that together will be solid but no real flashy guys.

put me on a spot i would say Max williams on offense and Travis on Defense

I'd have to go with Tyrone Carter probably because when I started following the team he was the little guy making plays on D.  Though Barber and Maroney would be a close 2 and 3.  

Current I would have to say Maxx Williams just because he was the first commitment that I broke.  Also the fact that he has the makings to be a stud TE.
Shhh..... My Common Sense is Tingling.

#1 - Karon Riley - Sack master and one of the Gophers best DL in recent memory (including Hageman IMHO).  He never really made it in the NFL, but I am basing my decision on his days as a Gopher!

#2 - Asad Abdul-Khaliq - good QB who led us to a 10-3 record in 2003.

Maroney/Barber is of course an easy selection ... as is Darrell Thompson.

My favorite current Gopher is Gaelin Elmore even though he has not played a snap yet.  I just like his Gopher enthusiasm and how he helps the Gophers recruit!

Eslinger was fun to watch. And coach Mason had a terrific line of running backs Maroney, Barber, and a couple of guys whose names I forgot. I look for Kill to reinvigorate the RB at Minnesota.

I like this thread but maybe we should go with favorite at each position.  its hard to put a OL against a RB or a WR or LB etc...

Should we start with QB

Ricky Foggie was one of my favorites as to this day my wife and I say it is pretty Ricky out when it is Foggie outside!  but besides the name he was as fluid as anyone and was extremely fun to watch.

Foggie is great, but I would go with Khaliq too.

Would have to say Khaliq as well, but Cupito would be a close 2nd for me.

Its a tough choice between Hamner, MBIII and Maroney, but I think I have to go with Maroney.

RB is the toughest position for me to decide.  I like Marion Barber, DT, MBIII, and Maroney a lot.  All great running backs at different times.  The MBIII and Maroney tandem was truly something special and I think I have to go with Maroney because it seemed like it was possible he could take it to the house every time he touched the ball.

How about the TE

Spaeth is mine but I have to admit I usually take the first one that I think about.
