Golden Nugz - 08.03.12

This is the best nugget I have read all summer. Yesterday I mentioned how the Gopher's offseason program was a set of teams put together to develop competition. Phil Miller gives more details of the system and gets Brock Vereen to talk about the player draft.

"First overall was Dave Ramlet, our long snapper," Vereen said of the sophomore walk-on from Appleton, Wis. A surprising pick? Not at all. In addition to being 6-2 and 240 pounds, Ramlet is enrolled in the Carlson School of Business. "He's awesome in school, in the classroom" as well as in the weight room, Vereen said. "There's a lot of strategy to this. For the summer, it's a lot more about academics, and not getting in trouble."

Who would have guessed.
