Marcus Jones isn't physically imposing, but his skills as a kick returner and receiver gives the Gophers a much-needed weapon.

Jones might be the first of a number of very young, talented players that Killo & Co. lure to the "Land of 10,000 Losses!" Let's give Kill some time to put his own players in place. A supportive overall university environment would also be helpful. I'm not sure this has ever been the case at The University of Minnesnobba!

Nice to read about a hard worker on the field and in the class room. Kill needs to get more student athletes like Jones to turn this thing around. Gray wants to get Jones the ball, if only Gray could pass.

Seems like a good kid but shows the state of the program when the coaches are championing a guy who has played in six games and has 8 catches, some at garbage time. The kick-off return was the 9th kick-off of the game for Purdue. Really doubt the Purdue guys where as focused as they were earlier in the game.
