Where are Lloyd's minions going?

BY SCOTT BELL

Scot Loeffler obviously likes a challenge. But really? This much of a challenge?
If he thought turning a lanky, awkward John Navarre into a first-team All Big Ten performer was a tough task (it was, and he did), then he might not realize what he's in for next.
