The big guy might be better suited as a blocking tight end. :-)

Where's my man Mad Max Shortell? He will be the #2 QB just by showing up on campus. Relax, people. Our QB of the future is coming.

Moses Alipate seems like a good kid but he really hurt his chances for game action at any position this fall by reporting for spring practice overweight. Jerry Kill announced at his first press conference as Gophers head coach that the program has a clean slate, no player has a lock on a starting job, all players were expected to participate in conditioning workouts during the off season, and he was eager to see which players have the desire and discipline to play football for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers when spring practice kicked off.

Did Alipate think that Kill was kidding?

Anyone know where Brewster ended up? I suppose he is working for some top 10 program because of his recruiting skills.

You can never have enough good athletes. Hope he's good enough to break in at a different position.

Wisco Beef - What is lacking in your life?
You seem to find enjoyment in stating stupid, negative comments about the U. Everyone gets it here you are a badger fan. Grow up, try keeping with the topic of the stories as well. I don't believe you even bother reading most of them.You just type your rubbish daily it seems.

roll: individual who posts items for a reaction only. when it involves sports, usually a bald, chubby 35-40 year old male in his parent's basement in Wisconsin. He even aknowledges his obesity problem with his posting name of "Wisco Beef". A real lard a s s. probably has made love to at least one live cow and one dead deer and one hogger (u of W coed)ten years ago as a rule, intoxicated on beer most of the time. no job, lives off welfare and parents generosity. not much of a personality, when not watching cartoons is generally on his computer on websites posting inane comments that are largely non-sensical (I know, big words but you can look them up!).

Other folks please feel free to add to this description/definition.

Brewster never pressured Alipate about losing weight, because Alipate's strong arm and pocket presence fit the coach's revamped offense. Unlike Brewster's old spread offense, the quarterback now would be under center instead of running out of the shotgun

The only thing the Huckster cared about was growing that rose bowl turf he had in his office. Delusional is the only word to describe the Huckster.

If he slims down, he can keep the nickname, as in "Jared" from the Subway commercials.
