Nice little bit of marketing from Jerry Kill


James Franklin grabbed headlines a couple weeks ago for offering over Twitter to call one fan's boss in hopes of getting him off work in time to make it to Vanderbilt Stadium for the 'Dores opener with Ole Miss on Thursday.

Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill is going one step further. He's gone ahead and provided a note to get every single Gophers fan out of the office in advance of Thursday night's opener against UNLV.

The Golden Gophers kick off at 6 p.m. local time at TCF Bank Stadium. The game will be televised on BTN.
