    Payne is an example of just a real good football player. he gets open, he catches the ball, and that is that. it's not all about looking pretty or outrunning a stopwatch. the guy is just a heck of a player!

    If he can keep this up he will be a lock for an NFL practice squad.Edited by: Triad

    Just made a YAC for Minnesota's biggest play of the game, to set up the tying TD vs. Penn State.

    He had 94 yards receiving today.Another solid game!It just sucks that the stupid field goal kicker missed the extra point that cost them the game.Minnesota is now 2-4 and that really is too bad.They are a fun team to watch with their receivers and tightend.Hopefully they can still turn it around but today was a heartbreaker.

    Two receivers enter record books

    By Tyler Rushmeyer

    At the conclusion of Saturday's game, nearly all thoughts were directed at
    a kicker, a point after attempt and an official.

    But lost in the stunning defeat was a Gophers' passing attack that put
    together its best game of the season - and, in the process, helped two
    Minnesota receivers climb higher in the record books.

    Senior quarterback Bryan Cupito finished 25-of-36 for 347 yards and two
    touchdowns, efficiently spreading the ball out to six different receivers.

    Senior tight end Matt Spaeth led the way, hauling in six receptions for 99
    yards and a touchdown.

    With his 30-yard touchdown reception on Minnesota's opening
    possession, Spaeth became the 19th player in Gophers history to hit the
    1,000-yard career receiving mark.

    Three quarters later, he nabbed in his 84th career reception, passing Ben
    Utecht (2000-2003) for the most career receptions by a tight end.

    Cupito said Spaeth's spot in the record books is well-deserved.

    "I just expected it," Cupito said of Spaeth. "He's a great tight end and he'll
    definitely be playing on Sundays next year. I don't know if there are any
    more records he can break."

    Senior wide receiver Logan Payne caught six passes for the fifth
    consecutive week, finishing with 94 receiving yards.

    Payne became the 20th player in Minnesota history to collect 1,000 yards
    receiving with his early-second quarter 15-yard reception.

    "I think (Payne) is playing as good as any football player in this league,"
    coach Glen Mason said. "He's a senior, a product of the program, a guy
    that has worked real hard for us."

    Payne wasn't exactly excited by the record.

    "I don't know about the stats. I don't care about the stats," he said. "All I
    know is we're 0-3 in the Big Ten."

    it will be interesting to see how Logan's NFL chances play out... it seems that the NFL is much more likely to give a chance to a solid, if unspectacular, white receiver like Logan who, although worthy to play in the league, doesn't have the stereo-type shattering athleticism to challenge the black-loving paradigm that rules the League.

    explosive threats like Tim Dwight, Troy Bergeron, Ethan Kilmer, Jeremy Bloom, etc. often get pigeonholed as White Special Teams Demons, or endure short stints as kick returners before rapidly being forced into obscurity...
