08:18 AM ET 01.19 | My, how things have changed for Philip Nelson, who as one of the nation's top high school quarterbacks, is a Wisconsin fan. [The] teenager says today, Wisconsin "was pretty tempting." And Minnesota? "No shot," Nelson said with a smile. "I ruled them out right away." Which is why Nelson, one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in Minnesota high school history, seems almost amused to find himself walking the Minneapolis campus now as an early enrollee attending classes and settling in to college life only a few blocks from TCF Bank Stadium. Nelson, ranked by longtime recruiting expert Tom Lemming as the fourth-best senior QB in the nation, is the signature member of Jerry Kill's 2012 recruiting class.

Perhaps he was reflecting back on something he had said earlier. Or he's high...

They left a huge chunk out of this story, like HOW did he end up at Minnesota, considering the rest of the facts.

Maybe the intern clicked "post" and it wouldn't post and after 4 or 5 times, he accidentally deleted some of it while trying to get it to post.

Crap. Just saw Rick Perry is dropping out of the POUS race. The rest of you guys could have done us Texans a favor by getting his butt out of Austin and to Washington! Then everything would truly have been Texas fault!

Since Washington is out of the question, maybe he will go with his Aggies to one of the states in the SEC! Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, etc...any of you guys want him? We'll pay his moving expenses!

Mine used to say "ignorance is in the majority" so you can probably tell they stomped around the same area!
