    Re: Minnesota Gophers Football

    When the Vikings hired Brewster, I said, "Why would any recruit want to come to Minnesota to play for him?" Most people did not know his name or know his past, and it made little difference in a failing program to hire a small name head coach with no track record.

    It is so sad, because when the Little Brown Jug, Paul Bunyan's Axe, and Floyd of Rosedale were created as traveling trophies, the Gophers were one of the most feared team in college football. They were perennial Big 10 Champions, Rose Bowl bound, and even National Champions. The Gophers fight song was well know around the United States because of national radio broadcasts.

    Now Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa make Minnesota look like a second tier team, and North Dakota and South Dakota schools prove that the Gophers are even worse than that.
