Gophers Punter Peter Mortell Has Warning For Adrian Peterson

The next couple years will be weird ones for the Vikings, having to share TCF Bank Stadium with the Gophers football team while they wait for their new downtown facility to be constructed.

Locker room logistics will be particularly interesting, with superstars like Adrian Peterson being forced to share a space with mere college players.

Perhaps sensing the turf war to come, one Gopher has elected to get out ahead of things, firing a warning shot straight at Peterson. Gophers punter Peter Mortell tweeted:

Now Adrian knows, he better not be a slob or the Gophers punter will get after him.

Trust me, you don’t want to tick off a punter. Just ask Mike Priefer. Those guys can make your life miserable.

Adrian doesn’t strike me as the messy type, but who knows. He could be more of an Oscar Madison than a Felix Unger. Mortell is definitely an Unger.

This could get ugly before it’s over.
