Marcus Fuller of the Pioneer Press has a feature article on Gopher football player and future Gopher basketball player Bryant Allen.  Watching Allen, he appears to be extremely sure-handed.  I'd be surprised to see him ever drop a kick return, and I look forward to seeing what he can do on the basketball team:

"I've been talking to both coaches," he said. "They said when I'm doing football, then I'm with football. If we make it to a bowl game, then during that week we get a rest I would get to go to basketball and watch. That way I won't get behind on the basketball side."

Fuller also has additional articles about Adam Weber's running game and his status as a starter, and another article about the challenges the Gopher offense faces with Purdue's offense:

Purdue ranks 34th nationally and third in the Big Ten in total offense (411.8 yards a game). Senior quarterback Joey Elliott leads the conference in passing yards per game (255.2) and sophomore tailback Ralph Bolden is second in rushing yards per game (108.2).

Adam Rittenberg of ESPN's Big Ten Blog discusses Minnesota's challenge to bounce back from the Wisconsin game:

"We have enough upperclassmen and leadership to be able to put that in the past and prepare for Purdue," Decker said. "This is a big game for us and all of us feel like this is a must-win."

Sportwriters at The Rivalry Esq. both predict a 7 point victory for Minnesota.

Notre Dame fans are excitedabout Seantrel Henderson's scheduled visit next week, despite the fact that he is visiting a team that once again is hosting USC.
