Philip Nelson has regained his spot as the U’s top QB, but Mitch Leidner probably will play some, too.

Makes sense - The formula of the past three games of Leidener settles down the offense and gets them in a rhythm and Nelson comes in and uses his experience to move the rhythm up a notch worked - so lets change it?... Now we can give up a couple series while the offense gets rolling under Nelson, like we did in the couple games before we were winning - if they do go into a rhythm at all... "We need to learn how to close out ballgames"... same shoe applies to not changing what works, Coach, even when you don't understand why it works. Have some faith - that "we" is not just the players.

Coach Kill is so in tune with his players, I trust his judgment. "In Kill we trust"! Go Gophers! Take PSU down on Saturday!

I like that the coaches haven't hesitated to switch up the quarterbacks as needed. I wish they had done that with the Iowa game. I think that could have turned things around. Go Gophers!

Engel & other WR's need to stop catching passes with their body. Thats what those gloves are for? Having said this i am looking forward to seeing the Golden Gophers beat Penn St this saturday.

They can't lose with either of them ~ two very strong players and both are exciting to watch.
