Continued: Hartman: Gophers, Vikings fullbacks boost running game

• Michigan coach Brady Hoke on his team being one of the “least impressive” 4-0 teams ever: “I don’t know. We are not going to apologize for being 4-0. The one thing that gets lost a little bit is the resiliency the kids have shown in the last two games. The defense had to make a stop, the offense had to get a score and they really played together complementing each other.”

• Gophers defensive back Cedric Thompson landed in a story in the Detroit News after making a quote to the Star Tribune this week, saying Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner “kind of panics a lot,” which can lead to turnovers.

• One positive move the Twins could make is that when they add a seventh coach, make it Paul Molitor. He is interested in joining the staff. Molitor ranks with the most popular players ever to wear a Twins uniform and would make the fans happy.

• The Gophers football team continues to bring in outstanding recruits for official visits. The top recruits don’t take official visits unless they are interested in the coach who has visited them and have genuine interest in the school. Watching the Gophers last Saturday were highly touted recruits such as running backs Deron Thompson of Wichita (Kan.) Northwest, Trevon Walters of Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee; cornerback Lamont Simmons from Jacksonville (Fla.) Raines, defensive tackle Gary Moore from Mobile (Ala.) Murphy and wide receiver Kendrick Holland from Winter Haven, Fla.

• The Gophers basketball team is scheduled to appear 16 times on the Big Ten Network this season.

• Fun news for a future Gophers football player: Andrew Stelter, a defensive end from Owatonna, Minn., was recently named homecoming king. “I was just thinking, ‘Did this really happen?’ I just kind of looked down and smiled,” Stelter told the Owatonna People’s Press. Stelter has 2.5 sacks this season and Owatonna is 5-0.

• Adam Weisenburger, a Benilde-St. Margaret’s graduate and a catcher prospect in the Brewers system, is heading to the Arizona Fall League, which starts next week and features the top prospects in baseball.
