Wilson said he has eight camera angles at his disposal, and “If we have all eight, we’ll show all eight.”

Previously, “If it was controversial, we’d hold off,” he said.

Wilson said he’d still be careful not to draw attention to a call that went the Gophers’ way, especially right after a play, when the officials could still review it.

“As long as we know it’s not going to hurt the Gophers, we’ll show it,” he said.

Starter decisions

Jon Christenson got the start at center and Marek Lenkiewicz at left tackle, leaving the Olson brothers — Tommy and Ed — on the second unit.

Peter Mortell emerged from a four-man battle as the starting punter, and averaged 36 yards on his two first-half punts.

Chris Hawthorne handled the kicking duties and sent his first two kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks, but missed a first-half extra point.

Etc.

Hendrick Ekpe, a freshman defensive end, made his presence felt immediately with a pair of tackles. Freshmen wide receivers Donovahn Jones and Drew Wolitarsky made appearances, though neither caught a pass.

• Redshirt freshman wide receiver Jamel Harbison didn’t suit up, and Kill hinted he’d been late for a team meeting, saying players need to be accountable.
