The University has announced that eight former Gopher greats will be inducted into the M Club Hall of Fame. Three names that most of you will recognize...Rob Quinlan (Baseball 1996-99), Ben Hamilton (Football 1997-2000) and Mike Crowley (Hockey 1994-97). And the rest are Mike Hebert (Volleyball coach 1996-2010), Joe Pollack (Baseball 1963-65), Garth Lappin (Wrestling 1947-49), Urban Odson (Football 1939-41) and John Whitaker (Wrestling 1935-37).

Not very many Nugz for you today but a couple of these are pretty good. Quality over quantity today.
- Tyler Mason of FSN North points out that we are lacking a pass rush.
- I'm not sure what is more amazing. The fact that coach Claeys is admitting that some of the Gophers took New Mexico State too lightly or that anyone on this Gopher roster has any reason to take any team in Division 1 football lightly.
- Very interesting article on Glen Mason making his first trip to TCF Bank Stadium this weekend and his relationship with the Kill staff.
- Gopher Volleyball is 5-2 on this young season and they recently won the UNI Tournament.
- Ryan James has a very thorough rundown of Gopher hoops recruiting targets ($$).
