If I had to place a bet on what oxboro would comment on in chaz's column that one would be it. He picks the most obvious and makes the stupidest snide comment anyones seen. Thanks for adding nothing Ox. The worst contributors to PP are 1) Joe Doucheray 2) Chaz Walters 3) Oxboro. This is the first time you ever finished in the top 3 ox, congrats!

If Brewster is looking to find another head coaching job I suspect he will be looking a long time. He is going to have to find another line of work other than football unless he tries to be a salesman. Of course that does not say much since sales people are the lowest form of life in existence today. They say whatever they need to get a sale and can not be trusted. It a salesman tells you one thing always make sure you check with at least two or three sources to verify the information they say and if they are lying call them out and don't let the SOB off the hook.

The Wild and Wolves in St Paul make perfect sense if the Vikes go to downtown Mpls. Spending that kind of cash is unnecessary if a perfectly suitable facility is available and the Excel outperforms Target.
Brewster still out of work...not even a sniff from 1AA....is this a shock to any Gopher football fan?
It is a joke if S-3 even gets a sniff of interest from the NBA, but you can't coach size....
I think this will be the last we ever hear about Gopher football players and academic difficulty as Kill takes the program...that was not a problem at NIU or SIU...you go to class if you play for him.
Peterson and Lumpkin...that was a decent story about adults actually acting as adults...and a decent kid is a result...go figure...

Consider yourself lucky! We finally have one story that we can actually comment on. Granted, it's a story about a silly sporting program that in light of the Middle East turmoil, unemployment, dangerously rising fuel prices, etc. is really pretty facile. But let's thank the good people at the PP for allowing us to comment on at least one story.

1) Glen owning an egg farm producing over 9 million eggs per day? That explains why he has egg on his face from the way he leads his tenderwolves franchise!
2) Brewster hasn't found another football job yet? Wow! Wonder of wonders! Whoda thunk it??:-)

Mauer makes so much from his endorsements, he won't have to touch his baseball income. One paycheck of his and I wouldn't need anymore income for life. Almost time for the milk commercials to start, no wonder milk just went up.

First we lost Herb...and now Gordo will hang it up. It isn't going to be the same, that's for sure. Gordon has been a constant with this franchise since their first World Series and of course, Herb was the voice of this franchise from the mid 60s until a few years back.

Whether you like Gordon and his style or not, there is no denying he has been a big part of this franchise over the past quarter decade.

Twins baseball won't be the same with neither one of these two in the booth.

Shooter you have no clue on this subject, isn't against the law to discuss grades of individual players, unless the the U of M releaseses it. So Shooter is this is speculation? I would be very surprised if anyone with University of Minnesota ties came out an said, we have 16 players are in trouble and not sure they can take part in spring drills. Before the little birdie starts to be like the National Inquire, maybe he should know what he is talking about first instead of just posting something.
