Tim Brewster is not yet showing up on the popular Coaches Hot Seat website, but after a couple embarrassing losses to good teams it now appears to be open season on Tim Brewster. The problem is less about losing to Penn State and Ohio State, is it also not so much about the 4-4 record. The problem resides in the fact that this team is more talented and deeper than any we have seen in a while but there really are few signs of progress, if any. I am a patient person and I think it is too early to make any decisions on Brewster (I'm not calling for his head). But despite his recruiting classes and improved overall talent within the program, he needs to start showing more on the field of play. Regardless of what it does to recruiting or not, a contract extension should not be discussed at this point (imo).
- The other great debate that will rage on throughout the season is who should be taking the snaps at QB. Not surprisingly Brewster quickly declared Weber as his starter. Gray played very well in Columbus and Weber played well enough to earn a demotion but he'll be starting at home against Michigan State.
- The Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the Gopher offense was derailed when Decker went down with an ankle sprain. That is kind of them but the offense was off the tracks long before that.

- Gopher hockey didn't fare much better. A series sweet at the hands of Denver puts their record at 0-3-1.
- If you thought Gopher Football had problems on offense, Gopher hockey has been shutout three times in four games.

rough weekend to be a Gopher fan huh?
