Golden Nugz 11.21.11

It is that time of year when every weekend is rather busy for Gopher sports. Hockey, Football and Basketball all played this weekend. Gopher football is one game from finishing their season. I don't know that we'll get a review of the Northwestern loss posted this week considering basketball has four games this week, football hosts Illinois on Saturday and of course Thanksgiving on Thursday.

A quick Gopher Football recruiting update. Who would have thought that the Iowa State and Baylor upsets over the weekend would have a direct impact on the Gophers?

  • Clifford Stokes is a JUCO corner that we are heavily recruiting. Iowa State is also recruiting the fast corner and he was taking his official visit on Friday night. Yeah, he witnessed the upset of Oklahoma State. He hasn't committed yet but that experience would be hard to turn down.
  • Martez Shabazz is also a JUCO defensive back we are recruiting. He took an unofficial visit to Baylor on Saturday. He got to witness the upset of Oklahoma and followed the game with an official offer from the Bears.

Neither has committed anywhere yet but I'm not feeling as confident as I was a few days ago.

But I can give you links...
