Gophers running back Shannon Brooks is a cool dude.
The junior from Georgia spent some time with the One Hunnit Podcastfollowing Tuesday's practice.
Things that stood out:
- Brooks is stacked. Dude is all muscle.
- He said they'll have a third helmet this year, a white one.
- He's 100% bought in to Coach Fleck's "Row the Boat" philosophy.
- Brooks doesn't care that USA Today predicted a 4-8 season for the Gophers.
- He's never heard "Body Like A Back Road" by Sam Hunt.
- He played high school football against Georgia star running back Nick Chubb.
- Brooks refuses to go storm chasing with Joe.
Brooks on USA Today's prediction:
"That's the thing that he taught us coming in. A lot of people are going to say different things, a lot of outsiders are going to say a lot of things. But most important, is the team keeps focused on keeps their head on their shoulders - don't worry about outside factors. Just worry about what we're doing as a team to get better so we can grow together as one unit."
