Editorial: Passing of Bob McNamara is sad news for Gophers fans
At times, it is hard to believe what Bob McNamara accomplished in his lifetime.
He had very humble beginnings in a house full of boys being raised by a single mother.
He somehow went from that to become a standout football star here and then, later, stardom at the University of Minnesota on the gridiron for the Gophers. Injuries plagued him at the professional level of football, unfortunately.
