Continued: Hartman: Dayton still expects stadium to be built

The Vikings owners had to show a solid financial statement to be allowed to buy the Vikings. Once they show that they have $477 million available, which is their share of the cost of building the stadium, you would think that the legal problems they are facing in New Jersey would have no effect on starting construction of the stadium.

High on Hageman

“There is no question that Ra’Shede Hageman is a phenomenon when it comes to his size, strength and speed,” Gophers football coach Jerry Kill said when asked how he looks at his defensive tackle.

“We need to have him have a great year,” Kill continued. “But I think he is also surrounded with some pretty great football players. Sometimes we forget Cameron Botticelli and Roland Johnson and Thieren Cockran and Michael Amaefula, those kids. T.C. is 6-6 and about 255-260 now.

“I think our whole defensive line has improved. Part of that has been because of Ra’Shede’s hard work and his attitude. He has had a great, great summer and a great camp. So we look forward to continuing to watch his progress, because if he does what he needs to do and plays well, he’s one class away from graduating and it’s a good story. There’s no question about that.”

Jottings

Apple Valley standout Tyus Jones was named one of four MVPs for the Under Armour Elite 24 basketball game held in New York City on Saturday.

• One of the late additions to the UNLV football roster this year is Jerry Rice Jr., the son of the Hall of Fame wide receiver. Rice Jr. played at UCLA last season, catching seven passes for 52 yards, but transferred to UNLV two weeks ago and he will be eligible to play against the Gophers. His father told the Las Vegas Sun that “at UCLA he got some chances, and whenever he got on the football field, he showed what he can do. I feel like he can help this team.”

Eric Decker played his first major minutes of the preseason for the Broncos on Saturday night and didn’t disappoint, leading the team with 66 yards on six catches.

• Former Viking Randy Moss has been getting great reviews for his work as an analyst for Fox Sports 1, but Moss told Sports Illustrated writer Richard Deitsch that he doesn’t want to be considered a member of the sports media.

“I don’t like that term. I just like being called part of FOX Football Daily and our Sunday show. I am not part of the media. That’s not my label, and I don’t want it to start now. I love the game of football, and this is just a new way for me to be part of the game.”
