According to the University, Work on the contract will begin immediately, with Mortenson joining the University and its architectural team as they work to complete preconstruction work. Mortenson's preconstruction duties include providing expertise on cost, schedule, construction site logistics and best approach to phasing the construction of the four new buildings.

Minnesota Gophers Basketball: Recruiting Class Moves Into National Top 20

Well, it's still early, and the Gophers still have two scholarships left for the 2015 class, so we'll see how they end up, but isn't it exciting to think of Richard Pitino having four years to mold a top-20 recruiting class? The article also notes that the class is only good for fifth in the Big Ten, but I'm pretty sure we'll take the fifth best recruiting class in the conference any day. I'm not picky!

Golden Nugz - 8/22/14

Happy Friday everyone. One week from today, we'll be trying to recover after the Gophers' first victory of the year!
