SID'S JOTTINGS

• Jared Allen talking about Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch: "[Wilson is] obviously loose in the pocket and creating passing lanes for himself, and I think the best thing they do is run the football. Marshawn Lynch, I think the last few games he's had over 100 [yards] and he's a good running back. We just have to sound up our fundamentals and get after the quarterback when we have a chance." The Vikings defensive end added: "It's going to be a fun game. It's another NFC opponent. I mean, you looked at the game and you thought it wouldn't be that bad and all of a sudden it's pretty tough. They are playing good ball right now, they lost a tough one last week, that team will be battling."

Adrian Peterson leads the NFL in rushing yards with 775 while Lynch is second with 757; those two stars might decide Sunday's game. Are they similar? Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who held that role with the Vikings from 2006 to 2010, said: "Probably just as far as being relentless. I think both these guys are angry [runners] and are real determined to get extra yards."

Jordan Hinojosa, a 6-2, 285-pound defensive tackle from Miami who was one of the Gophers' top recruits a year ago but had academic problems, is playing this fall for Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College and will be in school at Minnesota in January.

The word in Los Angeles is that the Angels won't re-sign outfielder Torii Hunter, who said earlier this year he would consider returning to the Twins, but it's unlikely to happen with the Twins outfield pretty much set for now.

Gophers baseball pitching coach Todd Oakes has made a complete recovery from acute leukemia after getting a bone marrow transplant. A benefit for Oakes will be held next Saturday at Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Club in Jordan.
