The Gophers football season and opening game at the TCF Bank Stadium is only a month away and the buzz around the Golden Gophers roster and play-book continue to grow. This week the buzz surrounds none other than the Golden-Boy himself Eric Decker. The small-town Minnesota native who has awed Gopher fans since he stepped on to the field for the first time 3 years ago has been placed on the watch-list for the Biletnikoff Award.
The Biletnikoff is given yearly to the Best Receiver in the nation, although it can be given to any receiver that catches the ball through forward play, it has only been given to wide receivers since its start in 1994. The past two years the award has gone to Michael Crabtree from Texas Tech.
Critics are saying that this season, Eric Decker has a very good shot at winning... I certainly hope so, he has worked so hard and seems to do it so modestly. Good Luck Eric!
