The Wolves have media day Monday and then are off to Mankato to work.

Gardenhire coming back

Terry Ryan, Twins general manager, made it clear Sunday that a decision on the status of manager Ron Gardenhire will be made as early as Monday.

I could be wrong, but I believe Gardenhire will come back for at least one more year and then eventually move to some other position with the club.

Gardenhire said on television Sunday that he wants to come back.

If there is a change, rest assured former Twins star Paul Molitor will be the manager.

Sticking with Nelson

Gophers coach Jerry Kill watched film from Saturday’s 23-7 loss to Iowa and said it confirmed what he saw the day before, that the Hawkeyes dominated the line of scrimmage.

“Not the whole group, but it just wasn’t a great team effort,” Kill said. “It’s not the kids, you feel bad for them, they want to win, they were excited about playing. We just didn’t execute the way Iowa did. Just the discipline things you’ve got to do to win a game. It’s hard to win a game when the other team runs the ball very well and we don’t run it. That’s not a winning formula.”

Asked about playing Philip Nelson over Mitch Leidner at quarterback, Kill said: “The reason was that [Nelson] is our starting quarterback, Sid. He got hurt in the Western Illinois game and Mitch came in and did a good job. And Philip practiced all week and took reps along with Mitch. And we went back to our starting quarterback, and the game didn’t dictate to where we could work Mitch in.”

 

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. • shartman@startribune.com
