Minnesota Golden Gophers football: Predicting the 2014 schedule

If there was a bigger surprise in the Big Ten during the 2013 football season than what took place in Minneapolis, you’d be hard pressed to convince me otherwise. Minnesota started off hot, winning all four of its non-conference games. However, it appeared like a bit of fool’s gold as they also lost the first two games of the Big Ten season to Iowa and Michigan respectively....

Gophers kicker Santoso is 'Big Man' with big leg

MINNEAPOLIS -- When Ryan Santoso stood on the sidelines as a freshman last year, he could have been mistaken for an offensive lineman or a tight end. The Pace, Fla., native stood 6-foot-5 and weighed in at 260 pounds -- not exactly what you'd expect from a kicker. The guy head coach Jerry Kill affectionately calls "Big Man" isn't quite so big anymore. Thanks to...

Gophers RB Edwards works to be pass-catching threat

As the rest of his teammates filed into the locker room after practice, Gophers running back Berkley Edwards remained on the field. His work wasn't done yet. Thwack. The spiraling ball, fired from a passing machine, hit him in the hands. A coach loaded another football. Thwack. Again, Edwards made the catch, paying close attention to how the ball hit him in the gloves. Thwack...

Team-first Cobb has worked hard to become Gophers' top RB

MINNEAPOLIS -- After rushing for 1,202 yards as a junior last season, Gophers running back David Cobb is expected to once again bear the brunt of the carries for Minnesota's rushing attack this season. With that in mind, Cobb was asked after a recent fall practice if he had set any individual goals for himself for 2014. Without hesitation, he gave a simple answer. "Twelve...

Gophers offensive linemen focus on being more versatile

MINNEAPOLIS -- Former Gophers offensive lineman Ed Olson roamed the sidelines at Minnesota's practice Sunday, barely recognizable. Olson, who was listed at 309 pounds as a senior last year, has dropped about 90 pounds since his playing days ended. His hair is also a bit longer now than it was during his playing days, but the trimmed-down Olson was a testament to just how big...

Sophomores take on leadership role in Gophers' young receiver corps

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota wide receiver Drew Wolitarsky is only a sophomore, but he feels like an upperclassman. With such a young wide receiver corps, Wolitarsky and fellow sophomore Donovahn Jones are already among the elder statesmen, especially when it comes to playing experience. The duo saw plenty of action immediately, as Wolitarsky played in all 13 games and made four starts...

Notebook: Gophers' secondary looks stellar so far

MINNEAPOLIS -- Gophers cornerback Eric Murray left the TCF Bank Stadium turf fuming after Nebraska wideout Kenny Bell sped past him and caught a 42-yard pass that set up the Huskers at Minnesota's 2-yard line last season. After Nebraska went up 6-0 a play later, Murray found defensive coordinator on Tracy Claeys on the sideline and pled with him. His message: That won't happen...
