A little reaction from last Saturday: the end was achieved, which was bowl qualification. While we can choose to think that an opportunity was missed in not giving MarQueis Gray a few series for the sake of experience, that will make Gray's start on Saturday against Herky's Boys all the more stunning.
Hey, Gopher mens' basketball won last night! Check the live blog here. Check the game recap from the Strib here.
A few other Nugz:
(1) This guy has left Clemson's football team. Perhaps Minnesota could pick him up as a transfer. Lord knows he should be able to afford the plane ticket if his picture is anything to go by.
(2) Sorry, more from Wiz of Odds. Check out Pete Carroll getting a little ticked at Jim Harbaugh after Stanford blasted USC last Saturday. Perhaps the Gophers have a chance next year at the Bank?
(3) Yeah, Minnesota womens' volleyball beat down Wisconsin on Sunday, but this is HAWKEYE HATE WEEK, and the Lady Gophers bludgeoned the Hawkettes 3-0, in Iowa City, on Friday. A harbinger, ladies.
(4) Florida HS WR Toby Durham, whose cousin is recent Gophers commit Tyrone Bouie, is considering more visits (possibly behind paywall). His only visit thus far has been to Minnesota. He also has offers from Middle Tennessee, East Carolina, Colorado State, Toledo and UCF (uh, with that offer list, why hasn't he committed here already?). Durham claimed in the linked article that he is looking at academics first, and football second. Mr. Durham currently sports a 2.4 GPA.
