Gophers report card: Kill era reaches new milestone

Notebook: Gophers banged up in backfield

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Donnell Kirkwood knows a thing or two about patience. A bruising power back by trade, he's aware enough to read holes created by Minnesota's stout offensive line before plowing through them, usually delivering a blow or two on his way. But this season, the senior had to exercise a different kind of imperturbability, the kind that comes with getting bumped...
