More Gopher practice notes and the big news is that MarQueise Gray was practicing exclusively with the wide receivers yesterday. I'm not implying he is done as a QB, he will certainly see some time as a receiver this year and yesterday he was given time to work on those skills.

Sophomore MarQueis Gray practiced with the receivers Monday, a move that does not change Gray's status as the team's No. 2 quarterback behind senior Adam Weber.

"It's no secret that [Gray is] going to play wide receiver for us this season,'' coach Tim Brewster said. "We know that he's one of our best football players, so we're going to utilize one of our best football players, whether or not it's at the quarterback position or the receiver position.''

Personally I am excited to see him get some reps at receiver. This kid will make some plays as he showed at times last year (Northwestern game and Iowa State before the fumble). It's no secret that I don't think he should be our QB this year but I do want to see the ball in his hands and he needs to be utilized.
