The Daily Gopher Fix 8.26.08

Not good news yesterday for the future of Tim Brewster's football program. MarQueis Gray is out, at least for now, as we noted in the post below.

Speculation, heartache and anger run rampant on the boards among those who bleed maroon. Patrick Reusse, on the other hand, is likely quite pleased.

A thread on Rivals' pay-to-play board suggests Gray is back home in Indiana. That would qualify as unverified veracity by MGO standards. Myron Medcalf of the Star Tribune updated his story early this morning indicating that the NCAA Clearinghouse issue centers around Gray's ACT test score.

While I agree with one of the commenters below that we shouldn't get overly anxious about this, this is one of those annoying distractions the week before the season starts. Gray was to be the dual-threat quarterback of the future, and after Ohio State's Terrelle Pryor, there wasn't a better get at the quarterback position in the Big Ten. Brewster's class takes a serious hit if Gray doesn't find himself back in Minnesota pads soon.

But .... there's other stuff to take your mind off the future of the program, well, not being the future of the program at the moment.
