The Daily Gopher Fix 9.3.08

Swift_medium One of Tim Brewster's obvious challenges is to keep Minnesota-bred talent home. One overlooked former Minnesota recruit is being heralded as one of Nebraska's most successful wide receivers ever.

 As Corn Nation reports, Nate Swift grabbed five balls for 121 yards and two scores this past weekend against Western Michigan to put him fourth in Nebraska history in receptions (108), fourth in touchdowns (14) and tied with Irving Fryar for second in 100 yard games with five. A Hutchinson High School grad, Swift wasn't heavily recuruited.

He'd look awfully nice now lining up alongside Eric Decker.
