    Written by

    If you really love something, you let it go and hope it returns.

    Is that how the Green Bay Packers are approaching Randall Cobb's impending free agency?

    The deadline is fast approaching for the Packers to do something with Cobb.

    It appears, however, that the five-year veteran, who finished fourth in the league in touchdown receptions (12) – one behind teammate Jordy Nelson – and 11th in the league in receiving yards (1,287), will hit the open market in free agency.

    ROCHESTER, Minn. – Rushford-Peterson High School’s boys basketball team is headed back to its second home – the state tournament.

    For the fourth season in a row and fifth time in six seasons, R-P is headed to the Class A state tourney after a 57-46 win over Goodhue at the Mayo Civic Center.

    Warriors exact revenge, head to state semifinals

    MINNEAPOLIS – Jason Burg never dunked before. Not in a varsity game, anyway.

    The 6-foot-4 senior picked as good a time as any. On the Williams Arena floor. At State. When his team needed it most. And against the team that ruined their state-title hopes last year.
