Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Although he won't make any predictions, Gopher football coach Jerry Kill says his team is an improved one this fall. But any more than a modest improvement hangs on the arm and efficiency of quarterback Phillip Nelson.

He took the Gopher reigns midseason last year as a true freshman, a daunting task in the Big Ten. This year, everyone expects a much better Nelson.

Jerry Kill- Gophers Head Coach: "Phillip has done a nice job, he does it in a different way, a quiet way but he's had a good camp and the kids have responded well to him. It all starts with that position as we all well know."
