I'll bet the 220 residents of Rembrandt, Ia are sure proud of being one of the egg-laying capitals of the US. Maybe that explains why Glen Taylor's Wolves manage to have rotten egg's all over this franchise every year.

Sounds like Brewster recruited a bunch of stupid kids that can't play football.

There has to be a few good athletes who can play football who aren't dumber than a rock and/or have the maturity to appreciate that they are being given a free education in exchange for playing football. Not rocket science here!

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.

i remember seeing sean lumpkin play high school football. i thought he was hell of an athlete then and i guessed he would eventually be an NFL star at running back. i was wrong about the position but he sure was a stud player.

Do you still "hang out" down in Loring Park after the bars close and recruit "players?"
