Gophers attend Tinsley Funeral today 14 Apr 12

(Minneapolis, MN) — It will be a long and emotional weekend for the University of Minnesota football team. After last night’s practice at TCF Bank Stadium, the players will board a charter flight early this morning en route to Jacksonville, Florida to attend the funeral of former teammate Gary Tinsley. The 22-year-old Tinsley passed away a week ago yesterday in his on-campus dorm room. No cause of death has been determined, although foul play has been ruled out.
