Football

Joe Christensen at the Star Tribune has a quick run down of the match ups.

Marcus Fuller does so for the Pioneer Press.

Fuller profiles Jon Hoese. The former Minnesota full back lost his father four years ago while the Gophers were preparing to play MTSU under Brewster.

Christensen profiles the Gophers' defensive backs, focusing on Kill and his staff's ability to find unheralded recruits that contribute at the next level. He makes a big oversight in not including Antonio Thompson, who was recruited by all named, unnamed, and horses with no names out of high school.

Reusse uses his considerable medical acumen to write that Kill looks healthy.

Nate Sandell argues that fans need to keep perspective on the offense.

Tyler Mason profiles Moose, focusing on his ascent to being the definite starter. He also throws in a great responsibility line that I'm reasonably confident is a bet a la Super Trooper's Meow scene.
