Good bye Mr. McDonald

Posted on February 10th, 2009 – 5:15 PM
By Kent Youngblood

Greetings.

 Another Gophers coach is leaving, but I wouldn’t necessarily put this in the same boat with the departures of Roof and Dunbar.

  I didn’t get to know coach McDonald really well in my first season coaching the team, but I think he did a pretty good job of recruiting in the Florida area, especially with the signing day surprise of Michael Carter. It will be interesting to see who the new hire is. That fellow will have to pick up where McDonald left off recruiting-wise. But I think he will also have to do a good job of growing this crop of wide receivers.

 Last year the Gophers landed a bevy of highly-recruited wideouts. And while Brandon Green made some impact, I think the Gophers would have hoped that this group of receivers — Green, Brodrick Smith, Xzavian Brandon and Da’Jon McKnight — might have done a little more. They will be sophomores this season, joined by junior college transfer Hayo Carpenter and incoming freshmen Bryant Allen and Victor Keise . I think whoever the new coach is will need to help all these players made dramatic on-field improvement. This is a very deep group, with Decker on top of it.

On another note, it has been reported that Florida running back Trabis Ward is interested in signing with the Gophers should his test score be high enough. That may be. But the folks I’ve talked to seem to indicated the Gophers aren’t necessarily looking to add another running back to the 2009 class. I could be wrong. We should find out later this week.

EVER WONDER WHY YET ANOTHER COACH HAS QUIT ON COACH WONDERFUL??? I DON’T BUY THE ‘LEFT FOR A [TREMENDOUS] NEW JOB IN CLEVELAND’ AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU! INTERESTING THE WR COACH LEAVES AFTER THE KILLER SHOT NEW OC IS REALLY JUST A WR COACH? MAYBE THE OLD WR COACH WANTS AS MUCH MONEY AS THE NEW WR COACH???? SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE TITANTIC IS GOING DOWN! COACH WONDERFUL PROBABLY WISHES HE STAYED AROUND UNTIL A BIG LOSS SO HE COULD LEAVE AS A SCAPEGOAT…….

He got a coaching job with the Cleveland Browns. He’s moving up to the NFL. Kent should have said that, but there is a big link about it on gophersports.com

Its good for coach McDonald, it is also good for us in the long run. Another connection in the NFL. That can’t hurt recruiting. Will be interesting who he brings in to recruit Fla. Wide rec are in good shape even if new coach isn’t real schooled with them since Fisch was a rec. coach at Denver. Coaches moving up is not always bad!!!! Except for birdy, loonie,andy etc.

Shame on you Kent for noticing and daring to mention that the “greatest recruiting class of all time” failed to live up to the hype last year. The wide receivers were underwhelming.

By the way Kent, why can’t you tell us how many tickets to the Insight Bowl were sold through the Gophers in both 2006 and 2008? Should not need to be a state secret.

Oh yes, here comes little kenny with his johnson in palm to try to crank this into some keen manuever by coach goofster! Who would want to leave all these 5* WRs? Why only a graduate of Coach goofster’s training school for future NFL coaches! Is Fish back for some remedial work? Spin, spin, spin….the more coaches who quit, the better for recruiting!!!!!!!!!!

PS:

Of course not, but, I had been campaigning for this brewster to ditch that dunbar for a long time. Eventually, this brewster HAD to ditch that dunbar, didn’t he. I was way ahead of the cuve there, wasn’t I? It was SO obvious that dunbar’s offense was entirely the wrong offense from the day he arrived. I hated that dunbar’s offense. It was also by watching the way that this brewster bought into that dunbar’s offense that I realize from day one that this brewster is a “gm/recruiter” wanna be and that he really doesn’t even want to be a coach.

So, it is totally necessary that some people who are NOT total “company line clones” have their say and provide a contrast to the “company line clones” from the booster club, the ad’s office, gi and gh. Things are NOT all “just fine and dandy” over at the Bierman Complex under this brewster. This mturi made a mistake in selecting a totally inexperienced person to replace the former coach. This prexy b IS entirely too old to still be the prexy of the University of Minnesota during these iportant and incredibly difficult times. He needs to retire and the sooner he retires the better. When he goes, this maturi must go. Then, the new AD can decide whether to buy out this brewster or to extend him. It is obvious that this brewster needs to win a LOT of Big Ten games in short order, starting in 2009 or he does not deserve to be extended, nor should he be extended. The good thing that the footall program has going right now is that Mr. Weber is returning with 2 years experience AND the new stadium. That was the one good thing that came of the foolish contract extension of the former coach after his contract had run down to zero…he was there to get the naming rights deal and he was there to help sell the stadium pitch to the legislature. So, prexy b, maturi and Mason did get the new stadium deal done. That was a good thing. Mason was pid millions and millions extra because of the foolish manuvers by prexy b and maturi though. The prexy still hasn’t paid back the General Fund for all those millions he borrowed to pay for his folly as far as I know though. Just another reason why this prexy b needs to retire and the University of Minnesota needs new leadership to navigate the storms and opportunities of the next quarter of a century from an academic point of view as well as all other aspects of management issues and concerns at the U of M. Included in that would be the management of the football program.

This macturi is 64 years of age. He is the lap-dog of a 67 year old tired and ready for retirement prexy of the University who is watching his time remaining at the University pass him by. This prexy b is officially in “lame-duck” mode. 67 year old presidents may kick back and hang on to their gig for another year…or…at most two years, but he is too long of tooth and he has already stayed too long. The Board of Regents will need to start easing him out the door and heading him off to tend the horses at the ranch.

The University needs to bring in a prexy to lead them for the next decade. prexy b’s time has come and now prexy b’s time has gone. It is time for this lame duck prexy of the University of Minnesota to get out of the way and ease off into his sunset.

With a new prexy, there will be new vision and new energy and new direction at the University of Minnesota. The University of Minnesota cerainly needs new vision, energy and direction. Get out of the way prexy b. It is time for you to go…

The new prexy will bring in a new AD…and the new AD will assess this brewster’s situation. (Note to this brewster: you had best start winning a lot of Big Ten football games…you are NOT getting it done and without a lot of Big Ten wins, you are not running a Big Ten program. Get on the stick and win Big Ten games or just get the heck out of the way…Time waits for no one and this brewster certaily IS a “no one…”

Ah, wren posting again. As always we don’t even need to read it because it’s the same old tired drivel that’s in every other one of his mindless meanderings.

YesiLoveThisTeam, you are correct. There is a lot of optimism from Gopher fans on this board. Brewster is adding increased athleticism which should translate into a more competitve team. I for one am looking forward to the next season and the upgraded competition. Go Gophs!!

keepthisbrewsterhonest: contrast by THE RENEGADE says:

February 11th, 2009 at 10:18 am

bisker, basker, what ever….You are trying to translate 55 t nothing bashings into “…a more competetive…” situation for this brewster. Five losses in succession to close out the 2008 season does NOT give me confidence that the competetive nature has been instilled by this brewster. Just the opposite of competetivness is the way it would appear to many who actually watch the games and want Big Ten wins. And you expect me, or anyone other than your fellow kool-aid drinkers to buy what you are spinning?????????????????????

bisker, basker, what ever….. What is the object of playing Big Ten Football games????????? Why do they keep score????? Why do they have league standings?????

People are watching what is happening. What you try to say does NOT square with what has been happening on Big Ten Game Day Saturdays. Who are you trying to fool bisker, basker, what ever…????? That 55 to nothing score did not lie. It masked nothing. There is NO way to spin it. 55 to nothing is 55 to nothing. I was there. I saw it with my own eyes. Don’t try to tell me that this brewster is trnslating into anything that even resembles “competetive…” The bowl game that followed against Kansas did not confirm that this brewster is translating into anything that even resembles ” competetive.”

You shouldn’t read what I have to say because you spread “spin.” IF this brewster gets bashed by Cal in 2009 nothing good will come from that game. IF he goes to ic and gets bashed again, nothing good will come from that. If he makes his first trip to State College, PA and gets bashed, nothing good will come from that. Getting bashed never helps. So, bisker, basker, what ever…you are not speaking in terms that I would put any stock in. As the Loon has always said: “…wins help…losses hurt…” It was true fifty years ago. It is true today. Only a LOT of Big Ten wins in a short period of time will save this brewster’s gm/recruiting career at the University of Minnesota.

the Loon says:

February 11th, 2009 at 11:14 am

Events over the past five years are heading towards a climax this coming season. TCF will open, Coach Brewster will field the third addition of his team, the Big Ten part of the schedule will not be as easy as it has been, the NC part of the schedule is harder as well.

My opinion is that this confluence of events has the big time potential to be ‘unspinable’. A lot of wins will send one strong message, a lot of losses will send another. People can say 3-5 in the Big Ten will be OK, I would guess that it would grind a lot of fans down. People, fans and non fans, would feel the weight of a three year total of 6-18 in the Big Ten and just say ‘uncle’. Maturi hired the wrong guy.

Time will tell, but it is going to be very hard to sell another season of Big Ten losses. Won’t float.

Just for a change of pace, let’s try to have a rational conversation on this board without all the personal insults.
Here’s how I see the Gopher FB situation: ?????? i.e., too many question marks to make any kind of accurate prediction about what’s going to happen next fall. A few bullet points:
pros: 1. experienced players returning at most positions, incl. QB, WR, RB, DB. 2. Transfers and jucos should help depth at OL, LB and DB.
3. Better OL and RB depth should improve running game.
cons: 1. New OC and DC- takes time to learn new systems. 2.Special teams- have to break in new PK & P. 3. Stronger schedule means team will have to play better to earn(yes, I said it) Big 10 Wins.

OK – your turn. How do you see the + and – for the Gophs?

Nice try short onery norwegian. The regulars on this site don’t know how to have a dialog or a conversation. They prefer to argue and yell the same things over and over. They must think that this makes what they say true. Too bad they don’t realize that all “beliefs” are wrong, some are useful. Some of you seem like you want to crash a plane into a tall building to prove your right. This is not what life is about. Less anger and more conversation would be a good start.

the Loon says:

Who knows, the offensive coordinators may be able to get more out of the same O linemen as were available last year. Certainly, my experience tells me that if a group are not talented enough one year they may very well not be good enough the next year.

So to me it comes down to what did I see last year that would make me think we will be better this year? Bennett will be back, Decker more fit and the rest of the guys will be a bit more knowledgeable about the systems IF the systems do not change very much.

After that one is reduced to believing that a lot of guys who did not play last year are going to have a big impact this year. Again, my experience says to me that a few might, most will not. Press clippings don’t win games. Nor does not being able to play at ND or Wisconsin. What we need to see is those press clippings rich young men play well in real BCS games.

I hope my eyes are spinning in my head after the Cal game regarding all the new impact players we have who are winning games for us. But, that is just a hope at this point.

littlebigboy says:

February 11th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

The main reason there is hope for the OL is that at the ages most played last yr. on most teams they would be on the scout team. Look at the average yr. of most BT linemen, Jr, RSJr Sr. RSsr., not RSfr.Soph and RS soph. Add a big time OL coach and I’m betting the OL will make alot of you eat crow!

Time has been scarce the past few weeks, but I need to drop in occasionally to check on the crazies.

Some conclusions I have drawn:

1.If Looney Toons and/or wren believe even half of what they write, they are serious whack-jobs, and will eventually harm themselves or others.

2. Until Brewster and company have proven that they will not ever be able to do the job, and/or they do something illegal or immoral, they have my support, and should have the support of real Gopher football fans. Schitzos like Looney Toons and wren are NOT fans; somehow or another the ability to post their nonsense in a public forum validates their manhoood for them in some twisted way. So be it.

3. I take umbrage with wren implying that because Maturi is 64 and Bruininks is 67 that they are too old to be effective. I’m approaching that age myself, and truly believe that I’ll still be a productive and competent member of society when I achieve that age. I’m thinking wren is probably pretty close to that age himself. Of course, he IS a blithering idiot, but I don’t believe age has anything to do with it.

4. Until today, most Gopher fans had never heard of Coach McDonald. I agree that him getting a promotion is good for him, and the new offensive coordinator will fill this vacancy with a competent individual. (That’s the way true fans think.)

5. I believe Rescooter still lives in a delusional world thinking middle-aged accountants in Gopher Gear are “hot.”

Texas Gopher says:

Poke–at this stage of the game, that looks overly optimistic. As much I would like to see it, I just don’t think it will happen. Priority one has to be getting this program out of a stage of flux. Stability, continuity, a routine is needed. These past 2 months have been a rollercoaster.

NYC Gopher Fan says:

February 11th, 2009 at 5:46 pm

While the defense improved quite a bit in the second Brewster season, the offense regressed.

In 2009 the offense will be much, much better. This will be primarily due to a greatly improved offensive line. We were forced to play young, inexperienced, and physically immature offensive linemen last year. That is a recipe for disaster in the Big Ten.

All of the guys who played last year as RS freshmen and sophomores will be bigger, stronger, and a year older this fall. They should all be much better and more prepared to play.

Add to that Wills and Carufel and we have the distinct possibility the O line might be our strongest unit.

There are also several big freshman O linemen coming in. They should all be redshirted, which is typical of any bigtime program.

The running back corps should be good and deep this year, especially if Bennett makes a full recovery. However, based on Jay Thomas’ two knee surgeries, we know that guys don’t always come back as good as they were. In any event, with TDLeon, Shady, and Whaley a year stronger and Lipscomb coming in, we will be in better shape than last year regardless of what we get from Bennett.

Weber is bound to be better with another year of maturity and the benefit of a coach who understands the passing game at a high level and can teach Weber how to actually play the position. If Gray is ready to play that is a bonus.

And the receiving corps is going to be the crown jewel of this offense. There is a lot of talent there, lead by America’s best college football player, Eric Decker.

I have never asked for Coach Brewster to be fired. I have said that up to this point he has been a total bust. Our current five game losing streak is not encouraging.

The guy I want fired is the idiot Maturi. Until that is done there is no point in buying out another coach.

I post my opinions and observations here because I wish to do so. I expect the U to ignore in all ways other than to want my money. In that sense, and only in that sense, do they “care” what I think.

And, to top it off it looks like he has some great experiance putting on events and might be able to work with the caterer to get it right next year at the recruiting social.

Since all the “experts” on this site don’t feel obligated to have “facts” that have any bearing to the truth, how do we know if Bisker82 is right about Trabis Ward? In reading the postings on this site by wrenloonbudrecruitingandy it is obvious that they are extremely biased and they are rarely factual. They certainly do know how rant and rave and so the same things over. It is too bad that they seem to have the need to do this.

We will see how many Big Ten wins this brewster has at the end of the 2009 season won’t we interested observer. That is really the ONLY way to rank the combination of how good a recruiting class is and how well the gm/recruiter can coach.

In the end, interested observer, the ONLY things that matter would be:

1. Running a completely honest program.

2. Graduating ever increasing numbers of football players.

3. The number of Big Ten wins that are achieved. (Here is a hint interedsed observer: just in order to have as many Big Ten wins in the first three seasons that the former coach who was fired had, this brewster will need to win 5 Big Ten games in 2009. That would give him a total of 8 Big Ten wins in 3 years. On second thought, I guess that he had better win MORE than 5 Big Ten games in 2009. He certainly did dig himself quite a hole in his first two seasons didn’t he?

The only thing that is clear is that you don’t like Brewster and that you feel he should not be the coach of the Gophers. Whether he should or should not be the coach of the Gophers is a fair question. The problem is that only time will probably answer this question. What we do know is that he is human and therefore is not perfect and has his flaws. He can to the job with no head coach experience. Most people would say he needs to improve in this area and would expect him to do so with experience. Most people would also say that he has raised the level of talent that Minnesota is recruiting now. Whether this is true or not, only time will tell us the answer. So why don’t you just wait and give it a rest. Saying the same thing over and over again doesn’t make it right nor does it shed any new light on what ever you are trying to say. It might help if you just lighten up a little in you hatred and obsession of Brewster. I think a lot of people would appreciate it.

I want and expect Big Ten wins. I will comment about what I have seen and I will comment about what I will see in 2009. In the third season there is NO more time for learning on the darn job. By the third year, this brewster will either have it or he never will have it. Big Ten wins vs. Big Ten losses will tell the tale. Based upon the first two years, things do not look good.

Big Al: if it is really you…which is the most unhealthy situation? Pretending that all is well and taking things up and ignoring the truth of what is happening, OR, seeing what you see, stating the facts of what you see and stating tht you do not like what you see if you don’t like it?

I am witnessing an athletic director who needs to step down from his position as SOON as the 2009 football season has ended. He can parade around the new stadium a few times and then he can go away. He will get a great golden parachute that prexy b guaranteed him las year when he gave him a big pay raise and extended a contract that had plenty of time remaining for three more years. Prexy b also needs to be replaced by a prexy who will lead the University through the next five to ten years. The economy will be much different during the next decade and it will be at best a very difficult economic period of time. prexy b can NOT put new policy in place because he will NOT be there to be held accountable. He is 67 years of age. I wish him a long, happy retirement. But, we need a prexy who will be in place to deal with the policies that he/she will put into place and will need to be held accountable for. prexy b, at age 67 is entirely too old to be leading the University of Minnesta into this unknown, uncharted territory that the years 2009 through 2025 will take the University. The Federal Governement has charted a course somewhere between inaction, incorrect actions, too little action, too much action and the inevitable hyper-inflation that massive deficit spending produces and the geo-political messes that inflatng out of this “newest and greatest depression era…” will bring…that the University of Minnesota, the state of Minnesota, the Nation and the world will now face. prexy b may be a nice guy, but he has run out of “future…” as a leader of the University of Minnesota.

Other than wanting new leadership at the University of Minnesota, I want the three following things specifically from the football program.

1. Ever increasing numbers of football players graduating.

2. A completely clean and honest football program.

3. I want the football program to achieve an acceptable numberof Big Ten wins.

The former coach was fired for not winning enough Big Ten games. Or, was it for some other reason Big Al, if that is who you really are???

prexy b and maturi let Mason’s contract run down to nothing. You were in Nashville. You recall the way people were upset about that. Right????? Then, the foolish prexy b and maturi EXTENDED Mason’s contract. Mason helped them get the stadium. Then, they fired him and they had to borrow millions and millions of dollars that would NOT have had to be spent. What gross fiscal lack of responsibility on the part of prexy b and maturi. They lost ANY and ALL support I may have ever had for them with their reckless and careless spending of millions and millions of dollars.

This brewster has not shown me Big Ten wins. I see a program in total chaos. I personally blame maturi for hiring a totally inexperienced coach when he was heading into a close to 300 million dollar stadium invstment. I don’t like this brewster’s style. I don’t like his results and I view him as a “gm/recruiter”…NOT a football coach.

I worry about your health Al, if that is who you really are. Or, are you sending me a code-word warning of some kind????? Is there a “hit squad” of boosters out there or a “dirty tricks squad of goons from GOPHERHOLE or GOPHER ILLUSTRATED after me????? ; 0 ) (That is a joke on my part…but, if something happens to me, go to those places to start the investigation!!!!!) wink, wink…

None of them read or take anything I have to say seriously, yet all of them are here trying their best to do what ever it is they do on gopher hole. Oh yes, they like to control points of view…they want one to speak for all…they want to present a united front as they watch this brewster get smashed by other Big Ten foes.

I want Big Ten wins. That is a threat to the gopher hole people?

Well boys and girls…dudes and dudettes, which ever the case may be: things must be pretty boring over on gopher hole.

You know, if this brewster would win some more Big Ten gaes, I might not be so skeptical of everything your company line states. But, it just doesn’t add up when I don’t see Big Ten wins in numbers that would lead me to believe that anything is ever going to happen undr e gm/recruiting leadership of this brewster.

You have got to climb into the real world gopherhole crew! Big Ten wins vs Big Ten losses is what this whole thing is about. Don’t try to tell me it will take four or five years. NOBODY has four or five years to waste any longer. IF this brewster can’t come up with at least five ig Ten wins in 2009, he is NEVER going to get it done.

maturi does need to go. prexy b doesn’t have enough future left as a working prexy to lead the University of Minnessota into the uncertainty of the economic future of the University, the state, the country and the world. prexy b’s time has come and is now going…New ledership is needed, and it is needed NOW!

And in the end…this brewster will have his butt kicked out of Minnesota unless he starts winning a LOT of Big Ten games, and even though he will get a 4th season, unless he wins huge numbers of Big Ten games starting in 2009, he doesn’t stand a chance to survive past that 4th season.

Even though Bayfield now wants to sign him up for life, put him on perpetual tenure and wants this brewster to be the last coach at the U of M during the next 25 years, it just isn’t going to happen. I guess Bayfield thinks that it just wouldn’t be fair to put any expectations on this brewster.

So, by all means, beg macturi to extend this brewster’s contract until at LEAST 2015 so that he can have more of those 55-0 beatings at the hands of this newly extended iowa coach. Bayfield wants to be fair. He appears to think that Big Ten wins don’t matter.

Keep this brewster forever! Gopher Football booster clubs, gopher illustrate and gopher hole types DESERVER lifetime brewster all the time for as long as this brewster lives!

That’s what they want so GIVE them what they want! Give this brewster an opended, yearly pay raise guaranteed LIFETIME contract NOW! Keep this brewster as the gm/recruiter forever! Make him stay for as long as he lives. That is the “company line” right now. Even Bayfield is kow-towing to this brewster and is spouting the “company line…” (Now that is not a pretty sight…)

As for me, I say 24 more games and the dude will be pushed out the door and all the booseters and all the gi/gh types will all be shouting that they never were convinced that this brewser was the right guy… ; 0 )

Whee do you little conformists come off saying that Big Ten Win talk is “…the same drivel day after day?????” There are ONLY three things that matte: graduating ever increasing numbers of players, running a clean, honest program AND winning a lot mor Big en games than this brewster has managed to do so far.

It is fact of life time for you little control freaks from gopherhole. If this bewster doesn’t win a hell of a lot of Big Ten football games in short order he will be history.

You people can’t change the subject and you can’t keep real Golden Gopher Fans from wanting a LOT of Big Ten Football WINS. Recruiting means NOTHING without the WINS. However, recruiting CAN signify potential danger and risk…and can present problems if too many players transfer out, leave the program or don’t academically survive. Certain recruiting patterns can be red flag patterns . Beware danger signals. ALWAYS do the right thing! And WIN Big Ten games. You always need to win Big Ten football games. You can NEVER win too many Big ten Football games…but…you certainly can win too few Big Ten football games.

________________
GH: What would you say to your critics? Would you take websites like firecosgrove.com almost as a form of flattery, because you are so well-known?

KC: When I was at Wisconsin, working for Barry (Alvarez) we never even knew that stuff existed. I never saw anything negative; the only thing I ever saw was positive. Then I went to Nebraska, and I started looking at the negative stuff, and that was probably the worst thing I ever did. It was the worst thing our team ever did, because our players started reading it. They were not only beating up me, but the players, and that’s a bad thing when that happens. That’s their team, they’re beating up the kids, and that’s not right. As a coach, I can take it. Everybody has their opinions, and god bless them, but I’m moving on, and I’m excited to be a Minnesota Gopher right now.

To the company line pushers: I am critical about coaches. You punks recall that I always state put losses squarely on the head and shoulders of this brewster. I have called for the head of that dunbar and this maturi. I think it is time for this prexy b to head off into retirement.

I’ll officially put this cosgrove on notice: Win Big Ten football games or move on along.

Cosgrove: you would agree that if you don’t win a lot of Big Ten football games, you are NOT doing your job and deserve to be gone…right????? You have got to DO IT, not just make excuses and try to fault the fans who realize that a program that doesn’t get Big Ten wins is not functioning.

Cosgrove now moves into the spotlight and under scrutiny for the 2009 season…along with this brewster, the new secretary of rush, the new offensive coordinator and, of couse this maturi and this prexy b.

It is my firm belief that the administration is at the top of the list of responsibility IF the Gophers don’t win a LOT of Big Ten games. (five Big Ten wins would ONLY get this brewster to the number of Big Ten games the former, and fired coach got during his first three seasons. That has become the standard because he was extended, then bought out and fired by this presxy b and this maturi at the expense of millions and millions of dollars that were borrowed from the General Fund of the University of Minnesota. This prexy b should have been fired for that lack of fiscal restrint. He should have had the money firmly in his hands from what ever sleezy booster source it was supposedly going to come from rather than to borrow money from the General Fund. Raising tuition again prexy b????? Just to pay for your fiscal errors??????

keepthisbrewsterhonest: contrast by THE RENEGADE says:

February 16th, 2009 at 9:13 am

The way I see it goldohfour: This brewster will go 3-1 in ooc games and 2-6 in in Big Ten play in 2009. I would celebrate if he could go 3-5 in Big Ten play, but, even that would ONLY give him a 6-18 Big Ten record at the end of three years.

He will certainly get a 4th season, because this maturi is still in lace. However, with a 5-7 record or less in 2009, there will be more and more people who realize the guy just can’t ooach.

I’ starting to think that it would be really very comical IF this maturi would somehow sneak in a five year extension for this brewster. You brewster apologists really DO deserve that.

I just don’t think this brewster has a clue about coaching. He wants to be a gm/recuriter. He wants to bring in new coordinators to do the coaching and to come up with the systems that they will run. He then likes to fire those coordinators to take the heat off himself. It doesn’t work though. More and more of his coaches are bailing out on him before he has the chance to fire them. He is not a good person to work with/for, quite obviously.

So, goldohfour, I thik at the very best this brewster would be 6-6 in 2009 and I suspect 5-7 will be closer to the mark. It could be 4-8 at the worst.

Now, quit telling lies about the 2008 season. This brewster was NOT 9-4 in 2008. He was 1-11 in 2007 though, you did tell the truth about that. I guess that you sometimes are half truthful goldohfour…I suppose I can’t expect any more than that coming from you.

Note to those hijacking my moniker: I will continue to post my thoughts. You may try to steal my moniker, but, my thoughts and contrasts about this brewster will continue. This brewster MUST start winning significant numbers of Big Ten Football games. He needs Big Ten wins.

You pathetic brewster apologists from gh/gi/boosterclubs can try to control opinions, but you will ALWAYS fail. Besides that, if this brewster’s Big Ten losses continue to mount, you will look more and more foolish.

You ust don’t seem to understand that the real barometer of the health of the Gopher Football Program is measured in terms of Big Ten wins vs. Big Ten losses. No hyped up talk about recruiting fantasy star rankings or excuses or attempts to control public opinion will mean ANYTHING if there are too few Big Ten wins and too many Big Ten losses. You people really are not very good at what you do.

Wren,

About the 9-4 record, Bud even mentioned that it does no good to bring up the past. When Loon was wrong about a Mason record, and I corrected it, he told me that what was in the past should stay in the past. He said, I need to focus on the here and now!

I’m sorry that I was wrong about last year’s record, but you just need to focus on the here and now. That’s not coming from me, that’s Bud speaking! I DISAGREE with Bud.

Wren, maybe you should take Bud’s advice INSTEAD of mine and focus on the present. It does no good to bring up ANY record from the past. Just ask BUD!
You and Loon need to take Bud’s advice!

gregory58 says:

Again, anything 7 wins and above is a step forward, anything below 6 wins watch out. It’s all on the O line development and D improvment. Don’t worry about Weber, he was under seige the last half of the year and beat up, hence his drop in passing. The O line was horrible, maybe the worst I’ve seen the last 4 games.

Whats really goging to happen? Don’t know, too many moving parts right now. See you in the spring.

It all goes to show how people have a tendency to blow UP the facts to their point of view. I have never seen someone UNDER blow the facts to their point of view. This also includes the Brewsterites. The Masonites are not the only ones guilty of this.

I think I’ve been pretty objective about Mase and Brewster and will continue to do so. Years 3 and 4 are the years that Brewster needs to be judged on instead of 1 and 2. It’s up to Brewster on how he does but this year will give us a very fair sampling to where the program is headed! I hope it goes in the right direction. Time will only tell!

This brewster needs 6 Big Ten wins in 2009 to have a successful season. He will not get 5 Big Ten wins. That means that he will have an unsuccessful season in 2009. At a minimum, he should average 3 Big Ten wins per season. For EVERY 3 year period he does his gming/recruiting thing at the U of M he should have at LEAST 9 Big Ten wins…or 3 Big Ten wins each year he gets paid from the Unviersity of Minnesota (unless, of course, he is bought out by this macturi…then he can have 0 Big Ten wins per year for the number of years that are bought out… ; 0 )

The 3 years of service will be completed at the end of the 2009 season and will include what he did in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He won ZERO Big Ten games in 2007, 3 Big Ten games in 2008 and therefore, he will NEED 6 Big Ten wins in 2009 just to achieve that miserable 3 Big Ten win per season average. Actually, winning only 3 Big Ten games a season for an extended period of time should get his tail run out of Bierman on a rail. Even the pathetic former coach who was fired for not winning enough Big Ten games averaged OVER 3 Big Ten wins per season. At the current time, the pathetically inexperienced brewster is averaging 1.5 Big Ten wins per season. Talk about failing to achieve! This brewster takes the cake.

Will this brewster beat Cal, OSU and PSU in 2009????? Hate those hawgseyes, but, will this brewster win at iowa????? Will he figure out a way to beat the pathetic wisky coach????? Will the young coach at NU continue to own this brewster????? Purdue was pathetic last season and should continue to be pathetic again in 2009. Illinois has to settle for that zook who can NOT coach. How about MSU…they will continue to be the best team in the state of Michigan in 2009. Will the Air Force be too much for this brewster…shouldn’t, but, you never know. Will the Cues new coach take this brewster to school or will this brewster win a game he ought to win???? SDSU comes to town late and there is no way this brewster can lose to them, is there?????

5 wins…7 losses is the way it looks.

Any less than 6 Big Ten wins and this brewster will be averaging LESS than 3 Big Ten wins a season. That is NOT an improvement. That is a disgrace! Get rid of this maturi now. This brewster fiasco is a direct result of macturi failing to bring in an experienced, well-respected head football coach when he fired and bought out the last football coach that the University of Minnesota employed. This brewster is NOT a coach…he fancies himself as a gm/recuriter. gm/recuriters just don’t get it done in the Big Ten Conference…

IF macturi doesn’t get this brewster extended for five more years in honor of you brewster apologists during the 2009 season, in a way it will be a shame. You brewster apologists deserve a less than 3 Big Ten win per season guy in charge for a LONG time. Long time die-hard fans like me certainly don’t deserve a less than 3 Big Ten win per year head guy…but…fools like this macturi would never really care about fans who have been around for half a century or longer. That’s ok though because this 50 year plus fan doesn’t think much of this macturi either! ; 0 )

I look at it this way. If Brewster can average 5 Big Ten wins or more these next two seasons then I know we are on the right track. Averaging 5 wins or more means we are contending for a Big Ten title. Mase did that twice in ten years. IF Brewster does that then I know we are on the right track.

I do enjoy watching elementary girls basketball in Winona where I get the girls autographs. Don’t tell that to my recruiting personality or I will harm those lovely girls. I just love watching those games and collecting those autographs. Maybe someday, I’ll make a trip to the Twin Cities to watch coach Brewster and the Gophers but I’m scared of the big city with people of different races. It is so much easier to laugh at them from my computer because I’m a scared little boy. Brewster is a positive person and I don’t like it. Ever since Timmy Johnson beat me up in 1st grade for being “different” I have had no stomach for this business. All I did was walk home and he beat me up for nothing. Why? What did I ever do? My mother Daisy was always away with different men at her “job” so I never got the support I needed from home. It’s just easier lashing out at others anonumously from my bedroom. Mom did leave me this trailor though, which is a bonus. I hope to pay my internet bill this week with my welfare money. I get 1/4th of Wayne’s check.

Big Ten wins vs. Big Ten losses will tell the story. No scum-bag brewster apologists writing sleeze and attempting to slander a Gopher fan of over half a century will either silence that fan or change the facts.

If this brewster continues to fail to win Big Ten football games at the alarming rate he has displayed, NO sleeze attacks on posters will ever have any impact on the fact that this brewster is getting his brains beaten in by any and ever half decent Big Ten football team that he prepares his team to play. This is all about 55 to ZIP with the team quitting and his coaches quitting and even this brewster quitting in. THAT showed the world all about this brewser. He was so humiliated by an opposing coach that night and the foolist gm/recruiter doesn’t even realize just how far his face was shoved into that toilet bowl called the dome that evening. Who in their right mind could EVER respect anything this brewster says, does or thinks after that 55 to NOTHING thrashing?????

That was the end of the damn dome and the beginning of the end of this brewster. FIFTY FIVE to NOTHING was dedicated to all you sleezy, brewster apologists who write the sleeze and trash and slander and sickness that you wrote.

So: go to hell, who ever wrote that trash. You can’t save this brewster from himself. ONLY Big Ten wins and a lot of them can save him now. He will have to find a way to buy,steal,cheat and get awfully lucky to win significant numbers of Big Ten games now. He has unleashed you brwster apologists and brewster apologists will stoop to any and all depths of sickness, sleeze and sociopathic behaviors.

I see Wren, sitting alone in his tiny cabin in the woods, wearing his hooded sweatshirt and dark glasses, hunched over his keyboard as he pounds out another diatribe against the evils of western civilization and the spread offense.

In the end, what will get him fired/bought out/ discarded will be his inability to win Big Ten Football Games. His recruiting will be proved to be over-hyped IF he can not coach them up enough to win a hell of a lot of Big Ten football games in a hell of a hurry. He has already totally wasted two full seasons letting that incompetent dunbar dictate some totally inappropriate spreadsy-coasty offense that they never had the players to run. And, do you know what? They NEVER would have had the players to run that mess of an offense. Weber is STILL getting medical attention from all the needless hits he had to take because this brewster couldn’t come up with any running attack other than Weber.

He should never let his players quit on him again. He should never let his coaches quit on him again. And, he certainly should NEVER quit like he did in that game. His head was swirled so deeply in that toilet bowl of a dome by that ferentz character that this brewster should have walked out of that dome, never turned around and just kept walking back to texas…or denver…or any where a LONG ways away from the University of Minnesota football program. Minnesota needs a coach…not just a gm/recriter wanna be.

I’m still predicting 10 wins in 09 but we should win at least win 8 games. Even if we win 10 it does not gaurantee a BCS game. If we go 9-3 and then win a bowl game that’s ten wins, but 9-3 would not get us into a BCS bowl game. I focus on wins not which bowl we go to. I said we could do better and be a BCS team, but the day you and Bud jumped all over me it was 8 wins in 08 and 10 wins in 09. I was one away in 08, and time will tell about 09. I still have the right to change this prediction anytime before opening day kickoff.

keepthisbrewsterhonest: contrast by THE RENEGADE says:

February 17th, 2009 at 8:45 am

You are just all over the board and then you spin until you get so dizzy that you blow lunch all over your shoes. 10 wins in 09 unless they win six…or…”…they MIGHT…go…ALL THE WAY…or…maybe they will need a new coach…” The goldohfour “fearless” prediction puts the season in the 11-1 to 1-11 range and he covers every single possibility and combination of wins and losses. The he says: “…I still have the right to change this prediction anytime…”

Here’s some advice: just pick a number and go with it if you want to do this crap. Nobody is asking you to do it and the bottom line is that you are still a weak-kneed brewster apologist and you just throw out a lot of numbers and possibilities and you basically do not take any kind of a stand.

The bottom line i that this brewstr will win five games in 2009. There will be 2 Big Ten wins…but…at the VERY best he will win 3 Big Ten games….but…he might only win one Big Ten game or zero Big Ten games if it all goes to pot for him. He should win 3 ooc games…but it could be two ooc games…so overall, he most likely will win 5 games overall, but it could be as many as 6 games or it could be four or three wins unless it is two wins or one win. And, I still have the right to change this prediction anytime…

There, that is a typical goldohfour prediction from the perspective that no matter what he does, it will NOT be enough for this brewster. So, not wanting to be like a wishy-washy goldohfour type of prognosticator, I will stick with a 5-7 predication for the 2009 seasons and let it all ride on that prediction. I won’t change my prediction at any time and I will COUNT the number of Big Ten wins vs. the number of Big Ten losses. That is my barometer of the third year…the total sum of the body of work that brewster has put together in 3 years of time.

It’s NOT looking good for this brewster. He is sitting at 3-13 after two years. The clock isticking and he has his program in total flux, chaos with the coaching staff and in complete transition offensively and defensively heading into his third season. The total number of Big Ten wins vs. Big Ten losses for the 2009 season will give us further indication of where this brewster is headed…and when he is headed there… ; 0 )

I have a confession to make. I post under all kinds of false monikers on this site. I hijack other people’s monikers. I am trying to keep the heat off Coach Brewster. I realize that he is failing, but, I am going to defend him to the bitter end. I will defend him by slandering innocent people. I will do anything and everything I can do to anyone who does not agree with me and does not agree with our officially approved company line. I am gophermania@hotmail.com.
