Gary Tinsley Jersey Patch

Already debuting new football uniforms for the 2012 season, the Minnesota Gophers also will introduce a pair of new patches to their jerseys. Like the rest of the Big Ten, the Gophers will don the rectangular "B1G" logo patch on their jerseys. Above the conference-wide patch, they will honor late former teammate Gary Tinsley with a black circular patch that reads: "GT 51". @GopherGridiron tweeted a picture of the patches, and you can see them in this post.
