Despite entering a challenging Big Ten schedule with a 1-3 record, there is still a chance that the Gophers can recover and save Tim Brewster's job. A likely chance? I wouldn't go that far. Welcome to the second edition of the Hot Seat Magic Number. By the way, I'm counting the number of wins Brewster will need to keep his job, and not the number of losses to lose it.
If the team could recover to have a 6-6 record, such improvement would require a 5-3 Big Ten record. I'll go as far as to say that a 5-7 record, with 4 wins against the right teams, could also save his job.
