If it took a temper tantrum by coachy brew-brew to "hearten" these losers, they need to find another means of financing their education.

Iowa is ranked in the top 20. Really? Iowa? Who wants to go to school in Iowa? If Iowa can be a top 20 football team, the U of M certainly can. It all comes down to coaching.

So Brew-snooze was mad at the two point conversion attempt by Wisconsin, well then don’t let them do it, stop them from running up the score and stop them from winning. Once the game is over its too late, take your loss and be a man!

There are two games each year which can win the fans over...one is Wisconsin, the other Iowa. Win those two games, and go 2-10...we'd still be in their corner.

The fans are still reeling from that 55-0 drubbing that Iowa put on them in the final game at the "Metrodump".

Honestly, Minnesota should have a clause with all coaches at the U...win at least one game/year against either Iowa or Wisconsin, or you're fired!

Agree about Iowa, who in their right mind would want to live there? That being said, some people do stop over to play some ball, then leave ASAP.

Brilliant. THAT attitude should make every decent coach in America sprint to Minnesota to take that job. Way to shoot for the stars. I'm sure the Rose Bowl would look past your horrible record if you beat cheeseheads and cornjerkers. NOW I see why you stink.

This is just another distraction from the reality we face. We are now 6-20 in Big Ten play since Tim Brewster took over as coach. In our last four seasons under Coach Mason we were 15-17 in Big Ten play. He was fired as "not being good enough".

We should not be distracted by two point conversions, hand shakes, tough talk or anything else besides the fact that after four years we may very well not win even two Big Ten games this year. Zero is a real possibility. Beat Iowa? Beat Wisconsin?!?! We may not beat anyone in the Big Ten for the second time under this AD and this coach.

The players are "heartened" by their coach yelling at the UW coach for picking on his team. This get's more embarrassing by the week.

I don't get it. How hard is it to stay focused playing football no matter what the outcome. These kids are a few of the luckiest SOB's alive and they are worying about staying focused. Good luck with life if that is the case.

Brewster? They could have plucked a junior high coach out of Minnesota that could have replicated Brewster's record. He's a recruiter not a head coach.

College rankings and bowl bids are based in large part on score differential. Brewster would have done the same thing if the Gophers were winning, which is something that won't happen. Instead of complaining after the game. field a competitive team.

Time for a change as all talk no walk. The team has shown no progress over his tenure and he has not shown the ability to coach, pure and simple. We need a coach who has a track record and not just a big talker.

...shiet...they couldn't beat South Freakin Dakota...CFU did...NDSU did...as did Cal Poly...he has run out of border ststes...he should look north to Canada for a game...maybe the U of Manitoba, Simon Fraser, or McGill....they are destined for an o-fer this year and Brewster is still whining about the conversion attempt....jeezus, fire the jamoke already..."I 've got calls from other coaches...wah!" how about coaching winning football or even respectable football...how did this dipstick get a Div1A job with no...I mean NO RELEVENT EXPERIENCE???? That is the question that needs to be answered...Mason was 10 times the Head Coach this refuge from Colorado HS football is. What the hell happened, they couldn't get the local HS coaches to apply?

Whats this "I got your back" crap. I display anger every weekend while watching pathetic coaching and team play. I am sure there are a lot of Gopher fans out there that have my back in regards to this. Now the Winston Churchill speeches are coming out of Bierman. I wonder if Brewster has Cosgrove's back on the goal line play in the 1st half. The ball is on the 3 yard line and the D-back is lined up 8 yards off the line of Scrimmage. Three yard slant and a TD. Or how about WI second touchdown scored by Clay on a run that basically no one touched him. Watch that play and see if everyone gave 100% effort. Who had who's back covered on that one. Or how about the wide receivers body language after the QB throws the ball five feet over their head or into the ground. Just play football. If you get your butt kicked, file it away and move on to the next game and work your tail off so it does not happen again. And finally Marcus you are 100% right about Grey playing QB. If they want to pound the rock they might as well do it with a QB that can run. I also feel that the change would give a big boast to the offense.

Broderick Binns and Karl Klug, two all Big 10 caliber performers from MN - who chose to play for IOWA. More young student athletes will be coming across the border to play for IOWA - not the UM. Why? Because all you do is complain and put blame on your university, it's administrators, AD, coaching staff and players. Why would ANY young athlete from Minnesota want to play for a once proud university and football program that shows no support or class for it's alma mater or athletic teams. Keep whining - you're making great strides in staying a cellar dweller.

What happened to sealing the borders?...why not start with the student athletes that have decided to cross that line. Who wants to stay where negativity is the norm?... and you expectations of winning 2 games a year?... wow, don't set your expectations so high for the program.

The Rose Bowl...what are you talking about? The Gophers haven't been to the Rose Bowl in 48 years. If a Gopher coach isn't willing to get the program on par with it's border rivals, then why would we want them coaching in Minnesota. The college, the facilities, and the city are all better drawing cards than Iowa City and Madison...no excuse for not taking the challenge to build a program that can compete with these two programs.

The Rose Bowl....you've got to be kidding! We're not asking to jump past Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Nebraska, and Michigan State....just get the program to the level of Wisconsin and Iowa...do that, and they'll be 8-4, or 9-3...playing in a decent bowl game.

I beg your pardon? We should accept what Brewster has "achieved"? Iowa wouldn't, why should we? Nobody, nobody could recruit well with a team that plays like this after four years with a coach. We are only, once again, digging the hole deeper for the next guy to try get us out. You want us to continue to support this coach so you can get a free win every year. You wanted and got Mason fired. Enough is enough with Brewster ball.

Great, earn respect but still lose. Maybe he should be a little more angry over how his team has stunk up the Big Ten and Division 1 football this season.
