The University of Minnesota Golden Gopher football team expected to have its most experienced group on the team in the secondary.

The Gophers graduated its two starting cornerbacks, but had the best safety tandem in the conference coming back.

Just before spring practices got going senior Kyle Theret was suspended indefinitely. Senior Kim Royston broke his leg a few weeks later. Those two losses left the Gophers with youth and inexperience all over the seconday.

It still is unknown if Theret will be reinstated and Royston will be healthy enough to play in the season opener.

Without those two, the most experienced players in the seconday are sophomore Michael Carter and senior Ryan Collado, both cornerbacks.
