August 28, 2014 — 11:25am
As the Gophers get ready to open their season tonight against Eastern Illinois (6 p.m., Big Ten Network), here's a blog post to get you up to speed. I'll be hosting a live chat at noon, so stop by there with your questions.
Meantime, here are some links to get you up to speed:
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.
Panagos joined Georgia Tech's staff on Jan. 3 after two years at Temple but will be reunited with Gophers defensive coordinator Joe Rossi, with whom he coached at Rutgers. Panagos also spent four years as a Vikings assistant.
