Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter told the Pioneer Press on Saturday that he favors the Twins among teams with which he is considering signing and that he could make a decision in a week or so.

"(Twins general manager) Terry Ryan and I have talked several times, and there’s definitely a common interest there, for sure," Hunter said from South Bend, Ind., where he was to watch son Torii Jr., a freshman wide receiver for Notre Dame, play against Louisville.

Hunter, 39, was raised in the Twins organization and spent 11 of his 18 major league seasons in Minnesota. Last season, Hunter, a five time all star and nine time Gold Glove winner, hit .286 with 17 home runs and 83 runs batted in for the Detroit Tigers.

Hunter would add class, character and heart to the Twins, who have lost at least 92 games in each of the past four seasons. But that’s not why Hunter is considering a return to Minnesota.

"I would come over to win," he said. "All that stuff everybody talks about, titleist ap2 714, ‘a great guy in the clubhouse,’ that’s extra that’s not No. 1. The No. 1 thing is look at my numbers. They’re still the same, one of the most consistent hitters in baseball over my career.

"But sometimes I guess my character and clubhouse presence and just that fire that I have, I think, overshadows a lot. The Twins are intriguing to Hunter because that’s where he began his career, and he’s a big fan of new Twins manager Paul Molitor, who he said helped him immeasurably as a player, teammate and bench coach.

"There are so many reasons," Hunter said. "You talk about the love from the fans and the love I have for the fans and the organization, growing up there. I came there as a young boy and came out a man. I always hold true to Minnesota Twins values I was taught."

As a Twins reliever for 11 seasons, Eddie Guardado pitched with his heart as much as his left arm. He’ll try to instill that passion as the Twins’ new bullpen coach.

"It’s not your ability, it’s your mind set," Guardado, 44, told the Pioneer Press on Saturday.

Guardado, who lives in Orange County, Calif., led the American League with 45 saves in 2002, when he was an all star closer. He had 41 saves in 2003, when he repeated as an all star. He appeared in a league leading 83 games in 1996.

"I’ve always felt ability will take you so far, but your heart and your mind will take you even farther," Guardado said. "That’s for everybody. Your talent will put you at a certain point, titleist 915 d2, but how you will be successful for a long time is your mind and heart."

The last time the Gophers football team won at Nebraska, until Saturday’s 28 24 stunning victory, was in 1960, 26 14, in front of 38,000 Cornhuskers fans in the season opener. Minnesota junior fullback Judge Dickson was 20 years old for the team that went on to a national championship.

"You know, taylormade r15 driver, I get happy every time Minnesota beats Nebraska," a jubilant Dickson, 74, said after watching Saturday’s victory at home on Sanibel Island, titleist ap2 714, Fla.

Of that 1960 victory in Lincoln, Dickson said: "That was the game when (defensive lineman) Bobby Bell and (halfback cornerback) Bill Munsey started as sophomores. Both played a tremendous game. Bill shut down the corners, and Bobby was terrific on the line."

Dickson, who retired as an IBM executive, loves the weekly improvement of the Gophers under coach Jerry Kill.

"Just terrific to see the turnaround of the spirit and the way the players have banded together," Dickson said. "They’re doing it the right way they’re doing it in the way we did it."

The Gophers’ next football opponent, Wisconsin in Madison on Saturday, leads the nation in defense, having allowed an average of just 259.3 yards after Saturday’s game at Iowa.

Behind running back Melvin Gordon, who averages 191.7 yards a game and rushed for 200 in Wisconsin’s 26 24 victory, the Badgers rank No. 2 in the country on offense.

It was on Nov. 24, 1962, the National Football Foundation reminds us, with the Big Ten championship on the line for Wisconsin, that the No. 3 Badgers defeated No. 5 Minnesota 14 9 in Madison to go to the Rose Bowl and play for the national title, a loss to Southern California. Wisconsin finished No. 2 in the nation with an 8 2 record, the Gophers No. 10 at 6 2 1.

Aaron Rodgers’ legs might be what separates the Green Bay Packers quarterback from NFL icons Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, making him perhaps the best in the game.

The Vikings face Rodgers on Sunday afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium.

"Everybody talks about Manning and Brady," eight year Vikings pass rusher Brian Robison said. "Manning and Brady obviously are two of the best to ever have played the game no doubt about it.

"But the thing with Rodgers is that different element, as far as being able to make plays with his legs. A lot of the plays that (Manning and Brady) may not be able to make, ping g25 driver, he can make. That’s the one thing that makes him possibly better than those guys."
