Minnesota Football: Another major recruit leaves Minnesota

It could have been nothing but smiles and joy for Jerry Kill and Gopher fans last week, but unfortunately, the week wasn’t quite that sweet. The Gophers landed a 4-star receiver out of Virginia, Melvin Holland Jr., which came as a surprise to many. It would have been icing on top of the cake for Kill if in-state recruit, Frank Ragnow, from Chanhassen would have signed his letter...

Gophers QB Philip Nelson struggles passing, but runs for 2 TDs

MINNEAPOLIS -- This is Philip Nelson's team. The Gophers made that clear all fall leading up to Thursday's opener against UNLV.
