Posted by: Michael Rand under Gopher quarterbacks Updated: August 14, 2012 - 5:37 PM

Gophers sophomore QB Max Shortell was available in a group setting after Gophers football practice Tuesday, and he had some interesting things to say about what a difference there is between his first fall camp as a freshman and this go-round as a sophomore. Shortell, who seems to have a good handle on the back-up job behind senior MarQueis Gray, said, "My arm at this time last year was pretty much dead."

Here is a link to a video with other comments from Shortell.
