Just wanted to take a second to address all those doom and gloom Gopher fans who always assume we have literally the worst team and coach in the league. Is Brewster a good coach? No. And I think that's been proven by now. But is he the worst coach out there? I think this is where we need to stop for a sec and put everything into perspective. Jump with me as I remind you that mediocrity does not mean we suck.
Brewster is definitely in the hotseat, I think we can all agree on that. But as you can see in the list linked, there are far worse things than going .500 in a really good conference like the Big10. And for being so new to coaching, he's actually holding up quite well when compared to much more experienced coaches with legitimate credibility.
In the end, I do wish for a better coach. But the reality of sports tells us some teams have to lose in order for the other half to win. Though it might not feel like it, the average winning percentage of every team in the nation is .500. So Brewster isn't horrible, just average. And I think that's about the only thing we can expect at a tradition-starved sports school like Minnesota.
