Cobb and Wilson's excellent adventure takes them to Manhattan Beach, Calif.

David Cobb and Damien Wilson shared a two-bedroom apartment at Roy Wilkins Hall on University Avenue the past two years while starring for the Gophers. Now, the two cousins have both graduated and have moved on to another two-bedroom apartment -- in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
They went right from the Citrus Bowl to the next chapter, extensive workouts for the NFL Draft. I chatted with their new agent, Jake Presser, today, and he's excited for both of them. Presser works for the Sportstars agency, which is based in New York.
Anyway, it was fun for me for hearing about their latest doings after photographer Renee Jones Schneider and I visited their on-campus apartment back in October for this story.
Randy Johnson has been covering college football in one form or another since the early 1990s. He was the Star Tribune’s main college football editor on the copy desk for nearly two decades before returning to reporting in August 2017 as the beat writer for Gophers football. Randy has covered a Rose Bowl (Joe Paterno’s 1994 Penn State team), and he covered a John Gutekunst-coached Gophers team that missed out on the 1990 Weed-Eater Bowl. Email Randy to talk about the Gophers.
The Badgers are loaded, especially on offense with Heisman Trophy candidate Johnathan Taylor operating behind what might be the nation's best line. Is this the year Wisconsin breaks through to make the College Football Playoff?
