Philip Nelson’s father wore Badgers red, but rumblings of change across the border made picking the Gophers a no-brainer.

Nelson would have been riding the pine at Wisconsin. He made the right choice.

Glad that Nelson didn't get to frustrated and jump ship after being benched. Heck this is only his second year. Funny to read that the stability of the coach played an important part in his decision to attend here. I'm hoping Kill's situation stabilizes or Coach Claeys gets a shot as permanent head coach. Heck, Claeys has just as many wins in the BG1 as Kills as a head coach.

It's great sensing a resurgence in my life time... Thought it was a lost cause, now I'm beginning to believe.. What a great feeling... Just want respectability, although I would accept a miracle...

"Nelson is better than Stave"... Umm no, he would be 4th QB at Wisconsin. Phillips, Houston, and Stave would all be starting over him.
