Minnesota Gophers football quarterback Tanner Morgan and running back Mohamed Ibrahim spoke to the media, via Zoom, Tuesday afternoon, ahead of the Gophers matchup against the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday.


Morgan discussed quarterback coach and offensive coordinator Mike Sanford Jr., his relationship with Sanford Jr., if he feels it was beneficial to him and the team to have more off-season meetings, if he feels he has a sixth sense with his receiving core, where he feels he has improved the most over the off-season, if the offense feels more pressure this year, the role tight ends play in the offense, and what it means to him to be playing for the Little Brown Jug.

Ibrahim talked about what he sees from Morgan going into the season, how he would describe Sanford, how he reacted to College GameDay coming to Minnesota for the Michigan game, what he learned from running backs Rodney Smith and Shannon Brooks, and how much it helps him to the have the majority of the offensive line back from last year's team. 

The Gophers face Michigan on KSTP at 6:30 pm on Saturday.
