Reaction to the Minnesota Golden Gophers Fan Fest Scrimmage

Joseph Gunther@@JosephEGuntherContributor IAugust 24, 2010

The University of Minnesota Golden Gopher football team held a scrimmage that was open to the public Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium.

It was a rather uneventful scrimmage, but the Gophers accomplished its top priority.

"I am pleased with the scrimmage," Gopher head coach Tim Brewster said. "Our No. 1 goal is to be healthy and no one got nicked up."

The Gophers entered the scrimmage without some of its projected starters and top reserves due to previous "nicks."

Senior Kim Royston (leg), juniors Brandon Kirksey (ankle), Ryan Winn (back) and Tiree Eure (toe), sophomore Spencer Reeves (hamstring) and freshmen Lamonte Edwards (ankle) and Devon Wright (ankle) did not play.

Despite the lengthy list of the hurt players that were held out of action Saturday, Brewster believed all but Royston would be ready to go this week in preparation of the season-opener against Middle Tennessee State on Sept. 2.
