07:42 AM ET 01.28 | Jerry Kill and Minnesota won't have the option of former Gophers quarterback Philip Nelson going forward -- while the options now seem to play to some degree in his favor. [Nelson] enjoyed his official visit to Rutgers but also is considering Kansas State, his father Pat Nelson said in an e-mail. Pat Nelson wrote: "Visit [to Rutgers] went very well. Philip very impressed. Kansas State now interested and talking with them." Philip Nelson announced he was transferring from the Gophers two weeks ago. He'll be able to sit out a year, under NCAA transfer rules, and still have two years of eligibility remaining because he has yet to use his redshirt. This would be true even if he picks Rutgers because the Scarlet Knights don't enter the Big Ten until July 1.

My hopes are that Minnie doesn't miss a beat sans Nelson, and that wherever he lands, Nelson gets a useful degree.

The kid has talent but makes a lot of errant throws. Put him with a good QB coach and he has a chance to excel.

Kill has a red face must tip a few boubons?

Losing to Indiana would make you red, too.

That would not be KC State.
