Jerrysota is the theme for this year's student season ticket t-shirt. It's a pretty good looking shirt. I have to say, I miss getting one of these with student season tickets.

3

Seemingly the only national or regional scribes to identify the obvious (i.e. we can run the ball and play a little defense), SI.com's Big Ten preview is fair in its assessment of where Minnesota stands in Year 4 of the Kill Era: "Kill's crew has opportunities to escape from obscurity.

From 1500ESPN's Nate Sandell, Coach Sawvel thinks the junior CB is even more of a destroyer than a year ago, adding that "an opposing coach told him last season they stayed away from Murray's side of field bc 'the completion % wasn't worth the battle.'"
