Gophers Football End Camp, Switch Focus To First Game

With games just a week away, teams are wrapping up fall camps this week. For the Gophers, Friday was the start of preparation for the opener against UNLV with meetings and tape.

With what head coach Jerry Kill described as perhaps is second-youngest team in his career, Thursday's practice was changed to a walk-through to give the Gophers basically two days of rest before Saturday's practice, according to the Star Tribune.

"I felt it was critical. Mentally, we got some work done, but I didn't want to run them," Kill said. "So this allows them to get their legs back, and gives (the coaches) time to make sure we can finalize everything," including the depth chart and game plan. "You sometimes have a tendency to keep pushing, but you can't play with a team that's not going to play fast."
