Just a couple quick items.
Gopher Baseball will compete in the Regional Championship today. After defeating Cal-State Fullerton on Friday and using extra innings to beat New Mexico on Saturday the Gophers put themselves in the driver's seat to win the Regional. But in game one of the championship game they lost to host, Fullerton 7-2. So a deciding game must be played tonight, loser goes home, winner goes on to the Super Regional.

- Gopher football picked up a 2011 verbal commitment. 6-1 linebacker from Delray Beach, FL. Jephete Matilus chose the Gophers over Illinois, Marshal and Western Kentucky. His close relationship with Donnell Kirkwood played a significant role in his recruitment.
- I don't like the sound of this title but the author asks, will the Gophers be the worst team in the Big Ten?
- Reportedly, Nebraska and Missouri have been given a deadline to either move on with the Big Ten or end their flirtation.
- Former Florida LB recruit, Brendan Beal is transferring to Minnesota. The MLB has suffered a couple significant injuries during his two years at Florida and will have to sit out the 2010 season but will be eligible to play in 2011. Beal was a 2008 4-star prospect and the #3 overall ILB according to Rivals.
- Minnesota also recently picked up a very late 2010 recruit. WR, Cameron Wilson was planning to walk-on at Oklahoma but a late Minnesota scholarship offer enticed him to change his mind. 6-3, 200 lbs and caught 42 passes in his senior season at Rockwell, TX.
