Joe Christensen covered Major League Baseball for 15 years, including three seasons at the Baltimore Sun and eight at the Star Tribune, before switching to the college football beat. He’s a Faribault, Minn., native who graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1996. He covered Jim Wacker’s Gophers for the Minnesota Daily and also wrote about USC, UCLA and the Rose Bowl for the Riverside Press-Enterprise before getting this chance to cover football again.

Gophers offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover filled in for head coach Jerry Kill this morning during his weekly radio appearance with Sid Hartman and Dave Mona on WCCO 830-AM.
Limegrover said he spoke with Kill's wife, Rebecca, this morning, and she said the coach had a good night and is doing well. Kill, who has epilepsy, had a seizure on the sideline at halftime of Saturday's 29-12 victory over Western Illinois.
"I can't say for sure, but I'm guessing at some point this afternoon, he'll be back in the office," Limegrover said.
