PHERSY: So Feldy, we got what we've been asking for. Tim Brewster finally is out as the Gophers head football coach. I wrote in the Faceoff print edition over a month ago that I wouldn't attend another Gophers game as long as Brewster was head coach. Of course, that came minutes after I walked out of TCF Bank Stadium the day the Gophers lost to USD.
So, Brewster's dead to us. And we can celebrate.
But instead of celebrating, it's time to find the right candidate to take over this program. We have an amazing stadium and a very dedicated fan base. The athletic budget isn't as bad as people say it is and the talent pool here in Minnesota is in the same boat ... no, we're not Texas or Florida, but there is enough talent here to compete.
Anyway, Joel Maturi is searching for a new coach, immediately. Of course, that's the big problem ... I'm not certain Maturi is capable of handling this task. He likely should have been fired the day Brewster was let go.
But it appears Maturi will have a big hand in this. So Feldy, we better give the guy help. There is no shortage of names out there right now. Scott Linehan, Marc Trestman, Lesie Frazier and Darrell Bevell are a few of the names out there now.
Who are you taking Feldy??? Give me a name and back it up. I'm pretty sure you'd be a better AD than Maturi, so you better prove me right.
