Yup...just one week till we kick off the season hosting #2 TCU Horned Frogs at TCF Bank Stadium. #7 belongs to our starting quarterback, Mitch Leidner. The junior has a 10-6 record in 16 career starts and is the unquestioned starter for a Gopher team that many believe will go as far as this quarterback can take them.
Before you head out to the State Fair take a look at these Nugz today...
- Leidner hopes to erase memories of his poor performance at TCU a year ago. How about getting a win over #2 TCU?
- ESPN Blog ranks the Gopher quarterback situation as 7th best in the Big Ten.
- Behind Leidner it appears as though Chris Streveler is getting more and more time at WR, meaning the backup job is coming down to a true freshman or a walk-on redshirt freshman. Going to be pretty interesting if Leidner were to miss any time this season.
- Pioneer Press has a feature on Gopher Athletics planning to break ground on their new facilities in late Fall.
- Bloggin' Scoggins has a couple good posts up on his new Star Tribune blog.
- The biggest remaining local recruit is Tyler Johnson and he is visiting campus today. Could he commit to Jerry Kill and continue the excitement around this year's #Empire class?
