“[The first game of the year at home against] UNLV will be, and we’re not sure about New Mexico State on the road yet,” he said.

Right now the word from a good source is there is no chance of the New Mexico game being televised.

However, Teague added: “All of that will be coming out here really soon as the Big Ten starts shuffling and assigning TV assignments. We’ll see. I have a feeling it probably will [be televised] and we hope so.”


• Gophers football coach Jerry Kill spent most of Wednesday being interviewed at the ESPN studios at Bristol, Conn.

• ESPN NFL reporter Mel Kiper Jr. released his top 25 players under 25 and, while no Vikings made the list, tight end Kyle Rudolph and left tackle Matt Kalil were mentioned among 10 players who barely missed the cut. For Rudolph, he wrote: “His TD total [nine] surpassed those of Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates and Vernon Davis and was tied for second among tight ends.” On Kalil, Kiper wrote: “[He] was actually best as a pass protector. He started all 16 games at left tackle and allowed only two sacks.”

• Former Twin Francisco Liriano is 11 innings short of qualifying for the leaders in National League pitching statistics. Even though he didn’t make his first start until May 11, Liriano is already fifth in the league in victories with 11, only two behind leader Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals. His 2.16 ERA would rank fourth in the NL.

• Tom Windle and Chris Anderson, the two Minnesota natives who were drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers, continue to pitch great for the Great Lakes Loons in Midland, Mich., in the Class A Midwest League.

Windle, the former Gopher from Maple Grove, is 3-0 with a 1.55 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 29 innings pitched, with only eight walks. Anderson, the Lino Lakes native, is 2-0 with a 1.67 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 27 innings pitched, with 14 walks.

• Incoming Gophers freshman golfer Jose Mendez from San Jose, Costa Rica, won his second junior tournament of the summer last week at the Bob Jones Junior Championships in Yorba Linda, Calif., shooting a 7-under 206 and winning by four strokes. Mendez won the Callaway Junior World Golf Championships the week before.


Sid Hartman can be heard weekdays on 830-AM at 6:40, 7:40 and 8:40 a.m. and on Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
