Minnesota names 2009 captains
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
Head coach Tim Brewster announced the Golden Gophers captains on his Twitter page.
Weber and Decker will serve as captains for the offense, while the defensive captains are linebackers Lee Campbell and Simoni Lawrence, and tackles Eric Small and Garrett Brown. Weber, who last year became the first sophomore captain in team history, will hold the title again, as will Decker.
No major surprises on the list, though Gophers fans must be glad to see Decker's name. There had been some rumors the star wideout might pursue a pro baseball career, but it appears he will finish his college football career.
