Continued: Eden Prairie's Mobley gets chance to play vs. Gophers in sixth college season

“I love the game so much, and that’s why I came back for another year because I honestly don’t have a lot of football experience,” Mobley said. “This is really my second full training camp, where I’ve been healthy. Getting a sixth year, it’s crazy. It’s been a journey.”

Maybe if Brewster and the Gophers hadn’t finished 1-11 in 2007, during Mobley’s senior year at Eden Prairie, he would have been more tempted to stay home. Maybe then things would have worked out differently.

“We’ll never know, I guess,” Mobley said. “I love Minnesota. It’s home, it always will be home, and I’ve always had a thought of playing for the Gophers.

“But like I said, from the learning experiences I’ve had, and the people I’ve met, I’d do it all over again.”
