University of Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill said Tuesday that quarterback Max Shortell is leaving the team and has decided to transfer.
Teams usually get honored after big wins in conference play, and the Gopher football team is no exception after its dominating 44-28 win over Purdue on Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium.
Freshman Philip Nelson threw three touchdown passes in the first half of his second college start for Minnesota, and the Gophers breezed to their first Big Ten victory of the season by beating Purdue 44-28 on Saturday afternoon.
The Philip Nelson era has begun earlier than Minnesota expected. The Gophers not only made the move to the freshman from Mankato to keep a healthy quarterback behind center, but they’re getting a head start on next season and beyond.
Minnesota freshman quarterback Philip Nelson has made his college debut at Wisconsin.
Another year has given MarQueis Gray and the Gophers more confidence about their quarterback situation.
It was National Signing Day for high school football recruits around the nation, and at the University of Minnesota, it was a relatively enjoyable day for head coach Jerry Kill.
Philip Nelson would prefer not to be the featured attraction. When asked about his greatest strength, he simply describes himself as a team player. But he’s going to have to get used to the attention.
