Funds for intramural athletics

The University of Minnesota administration doesn’t have any funds to appropriate money toward the $190 million needed to upgrade the varsity athletic facilities, but the school did find $59.6 million to upgrade the University Recreation and Wellness Center to a 114,000-square foot facility that will be opening next month.

In other news at the university, according to Owatonna High School coach Jeff Williams, defensive lineman Andrew Stelter, who recently committed to the Gophers, was offered a full ride by Duke, and also financial aid by Harvard and Yale.

“He excels in the classroom, which allowed him to chose among some very fine schools,” Williams said.

From a football standpoint, Williams reported that Stelter is a physical player who is difficult to block and very quick and fast for a player his size.


• Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor is in the process of negotiating a lease with the owners of the Block E complex across from Target Center to build a headquarters for the basketball team, one that would include a practice facility and office space that is lacking at the arena.

• Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was asked if this is as healthy as he seen defensive end Brian Robison, who played banged up last year. “It really is,” Frazier said. “He is moving around extremely well. I like his enthusiasm and passion, he practices the same way he plays. To see him healthy as he is without any hamstring injuries or a nagging shoulder, it’s good. We hope to maintain that through training camp.”

• Last year, Vikings center John Sullivan pledged $150,000 to make a new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital playground possible. To support his effort, linebacker Chad Greenway donated $25,000 through his “Lead the Way” Foundation, while the Vikings, through the Children’s Fund, contributed $25,000 for the $200,000 project.

• While Percy Harvin got most of the attention out of Seattle last week, former Vikings receiver Sidney Rice returned to the Seahawks after going to Switzerland to undergo a nonsurgical treatment on his injured knee.

• Former Gophers forward Trevor Mbakwe has signed with Acea Virtus in Italy for the upcoming basketball season. The team plays in Serie-A, the top league in the country. Also on the team is former Wisconsin standout and Benilde-St. Margaret’s product Jordan Taylor.

• Glen Perkins gave up a run for the third time in four games Friday night, when Houston took a 3-2 ninth-inning lead at Target Field. But the Twins came back to win, as they did the other two times Perkins gave up a run.
