Minnesota in need of change, and fastWith Michigan State coming to town, Saturday could be a watershed game for the Gophers. Josh KatzensteinOctober 26, 2009Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintOhio State needed a nice win to bounce back. With Minnesota coming to town, the No. 18 Buckeyes had a fun, relaxing Saturday, destroying the Gophers on both sides of the ball. The lone bright spot for the Gophers was undoubtedly true freshman quarterback MarQueis Gray. By the time he took over, Gray was playing a second-team defense; however, the 25-yard run Gray broke in the first quarter against the BuckeyesâÄô starters offered fans a glimpse of exactly what Gray is capable of. Not only did he break what looked like a strong tackle, but he also made the defensive end bite on the fake handoff before running right by him. In limited time against Ohio State, Gray ran for 81 yards on 11 carries and nearly surpassed starter Adam WeberâÄôs total rushing yards gained this season (84 yards âÄî taking into account sacks, he has -35). He also threw one more touchdown than Weber has thrown in the past two weeks âÄî WeberâÄôs thrown zero. Gray can run and pass and opens MinnesotaâÄôs playbook to a world of trickery, as evidenced by his touchdown catch against Cal. With that 7-yard reception, Gray actually ranks third in receiving touchdowns for the Gophers. WeberâÄôs talent is there. He proved it time and time again as both a freshman âÄî despite a 1-11 season âÄî and a sophomore. Through just over two and a half seasons, Weber is already MinnesotaâÄôs second all-time leading passer, just 354 yards away from breaking Bryan CupitoâÄôs career mark. But in 2009, Weber ranks 11th among Big Ten starters in completion percentage, 10th in quarterback rating and seventh in passing yards, despite the Gophers often playing from behind . GrayâÄôs role has been minimal thus far, but his success and WeberâÄôs recent lack thereof continue to give the coaches reasons to consider an expanded part for Gray. On the other side of the ball, the poison for most of 2009 has been stopping the run, but in last SaturdayâÄôs loss to Ohio State, Minnesota showed it is equally susceptible through the air. Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor came into the game after a week of criticism from the media, his high school coach and even top Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey . He responded with more than 340 yards of total offense, including two touchdown passes of more than 50 yards . One of those was a 62-yarder to Posey, who was more than 10 yards past the GophersâÄô secondary and had time to nearly stop his route to haul in the pass before scoring. While the Gophers (4-4 overall, 2-3 Big Ten) are essentially meeting 2009 expectations, something has to give. Minnesota ranks 112th in the FBS in yards per game with an embarrassing 292.8 average . To put that in perspective, Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford alone averaged 337.1 yards per game during his 2008 Heisman run. Two other quarterbacks had more passing yards than Bradford that season. The GophersâÄô sub-300 average is good for 11th in the Big Ten and nearly 50 yards less than any other team. Now, some teams often make up for a lackluster offense with a strong defense. MinnesotaâÄôs defense is 10th in the Big Ten. The 407.5 yards the Gophers allow per game ranks 95th in the FBS . Minnesota wasnâÄôt supposed to beat Ohio State. Everyone expected Joe Paterno to have Penn State ready as well. Yet after two straight losses, people are writing off the season and questioning Minnesota head coach Tim BrewsterâÄôs future with the program. Of the GophersâÄô four losses, Wisconsin was the only game Minnesota could have been either expected to win or thought to have a puncherâÄôs chance. The talks of firing Tim Brewster are only becoming louder, and heâÄôs lucky fans and critics have waited until now. FireBretBielema.com was started after No. 9 Wisconsin lost to Michigan in 2008. The fire-Bielema discussion has been heated for more than a year now. Since taking over as head coach at Wisconsin in 2006, BielemaâÄôs record is 33-13 , including a 12-1 first-year campaign ending with a Capital One Bowl victory. BrewsterâÄôs overall record? 12-21. The Gophers went 1-11 in 2007, his first season at the helm. If Badgers fans have been asking for BielemaâÄôs departure, then BrewsterâÄôs job should have been put in question long ago. The Gophers have the talent to win big games. They also now have the home-field advantage they claimed to need. But with everything going wrong, something has to change. ItâÄôs not my place to say that Brewster should be fired or Weber should be benched, but with Michigan State coming to town, a performance similar to the past two weeks could keep Minnesota falling into mediocrity and eventually into oblivion.
Docherty has running in her bloodSenior Laura Docherty has improved steadily in her Gophers career.Daily File Photo, Nicola LosikSophomore Laura Docherty runs in the Oz Memorial Friday Sept. 9 at the Les Bolstad golf course in St. Paul. Betsy HelfandNovember 13, 2013Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn between races at the men’s and women’s Big Ten championships, Bev and Jim Docherty swapped out their black and yellow Iowa Hawkeyes gear for maroon and gold Gophers gear. The Dochertys were in West Lafayette, Ind., to cheer on their two youngest children — Kevin, a freshman runner for Iowa, and Laura, a senior for Minnesota.Laura Docherty finished third overall for the Gophers and helped guide her team to a third-place finish overall.“It was awesome watching her finish third,” Kevin Docherty said. “Seeing how far she’s come and what she’s been able to do, it’s been great to see.”Gophers head coach Sarah Hopkins said Docherty didn’t start out as an elite-level recruit, but she’s worked her way to the top through steady improvement every year.A running familyBoth of Docherty’s parents and her older sister ran for Iowa, a tradition her younger brother has joined. Her older brother ran for Loyola University in Chicago.Docherty joined her first track team in junior high and began running cross country in high school.“[My parents] never really suggested it. They just kind of let us all find it on our own,” she said. “All of us played multiple sports and just enjoyed running the most.”She said the sport didn’t require coordination, which was key for her.Docherty found success in running and said she and her siblings bonded over the sport.When it came to a college decision, Docherty first visited her parents’ alma mater. She said after her visit to Iowa, she thought that was where she would end up.But once she visited Minnesota, she found she couldn’t say no to then-head coach Gary Wilson.“He’s too much of a lovable guy,” Docherty said. “My dad was friends with him — it just felt like a natural fit.”Wilson convinced Docherty that she didn’t want to go to Iowa, she said.“He said, ‘Well, you don’t want to go to a junior college. So you should probably come here,’” Docherty said. “He always called Iowa a junior college.”Bev Docherty said her daughter also liked the large size of Minnesota’s team.Though choosing the Gophers meant going to a rival school, Docherty said it was a good fit for her.“I think I made the right choice,” she said. “They don’t seem to hate me for it.” Actually, it’s quite the opposite.Her parents are ardent fans, and Docherty said she likes having them around for support.And she’s not the only one.“My teammates all like having them there, too, because my mom always whispers little cheers to people,” Docherty said. “They call her the ‘Gopher Whisperer.’”While she still talks to her parents about running because of their deep understanding of the sport, she can’t run alongside them like she used to.“Now, they’re a little too slow,” she said.Gophers careerDocherty redshirted both her freshman cross country and track and field seasons, as most runners do at Minnesota.Since then, she’s steadily worked her way up the ranks — something she credits to her patience and health.“She had a really solid year last year, and that was sort of a tipping point,” Hopkins said. “But you could see signs as a sophomore and even as a freshman that she was going in that direction.”Docherty finished sixth among Minnesota runners at the Big Ten championships her sophomore year, and she said that’s when she “finally developed the confidence to go along with everything else.”She established herself as one of the team’s top runners last season and hasn’t looked back since.Hopkins said Docherty is very “emotionally level-headed,” which helps her to not get too worked up about a good or bad result.Docherty’s teammate and roommate Kelli Budd said Docherty is really confident, which helps her manage things when everything isn’t perfect.“Even at times when a race hasn’t gone as well … she’s still kept her eye on what she really wants at the end of the season,” Budd said.Though Docherty has placed first or second in nearly all of the Gophers’ races this season, there were some where she didn’t quite see the results she wanted.Still, Docherty has been building toward a strong finish.“To finally have it all feel like it’s coming together [at the] Big Tens and toward [the NCAAs] feels really good and reminds me to keep trusting in the program,” she said.

4. YOU’RE SPREADING AWARENESS OF ADOPTION AND RESCUE SERVICES It is more likely that you will find a mutt in a shelter than a purebred dog (which is, of course, a travesty). By adopting a mutt at a shelter, you’re doing more than just giving a beautiful dog a good home, you’re helping others see that mutts are just as deserving of love and attention as any purebred dog. 5. LESS MONEY GOING TO PUPPY MILLS Friends of Fido, unite! Monday, Dec. 2 is National Mutt Day. The fact is, mixed breed dogs are just as wonderful as purebred dogs and in some cases actually beat out those with better pedigrees. 3. MUTTS ARE MORE AFFORDABLE It’s just a fact that purebred dogs tend to cost a lot more to purchase and to own than mutts do. Adopting a mixed breed dog is almost always more cost-effective in the short run and the long run and the tummy rubs are just as welcome! The holiday experts at National Today are here to help people celebrate the mighty mutts in their lives who are so often (and sadly) overlooked in favor of their purebred brethren. No two mutts are exactly the same. Their mixed breeding means that the pupper you are celebrating is really one-of-a-kind. Add to that the unique personality your mutt is likely to already display and you’ve got a life-long furry friend who is unlike anyone else’s. 1. MUTTS TEND TO BE HEALTHIER THAN PUREBRED DOGS Yes, it is true. Thanks to a little thing called genetic diversity, mixed breed pups tend to have longer and healthier lives. Having a larger gene pool from which to pull from means they are more likely to have stronger immune systems and are naturally selected for survival. Long live the mutts! NATIONAL TODAY News: To learn more about National Mutt Day, check out National Today online or follow them on Facebook. Monday, Dec. 2 is National Mutt Day. Courtesy photo Puppy mills have contributed heavily to the weakening of purebred genetic lines. This disgusting practice of overbreeding purebred dogs for monetary gain is widespread but the more people who adopt mutts, the less money going to these unsavory practices. Here are a few reasons to celebrate mutts: 2. THEY ARE UNIQUE

Armitt stepped down after just a year as chief executive.In a letter to stakeholders Peter Houlsden, permanent secretary of the DCLG, said they would be discussing what new role Armitt can now play.‘Joe Montgomery will, as director general, for Regions and Communities, take direct responsibility for the Thames Gateway Executive and coordinate the work of government departments and agencies in the Gateway’‘Following the successful launch of the Thames Gateway Delivery Plan a fortnight ago, we are now discussing Judith’s Armitt’s next move. Judith has made a tremendous contribution to the progress we have seen in the Gateway.’The letter said Montgomery, who was an executive director for regeneration at Lewisham council before joining the government, will keep his seat in the Communities and Local government board while he takes up this role.Armitt stepped down two weeks after receiving criticism at the Thames Gateway Forum from the likes of Chelsfield Partners co-founder Sir Stuart Lipton, Lend Lease Europe chief executive Nigel Hugill and Jones Lang LaSalle’s head of professional services Andrew Gould. The property experts attacked the government for producing plans instead of acting on the Thames Gateway.
