Heartbreak city in Big Ten country once again resides in Minneapolis.
The Gophers forced several turnovers but were not able to find a way to win the game against Northwestern. The running game pushed the Cats up and down the field, and Adam Weber did all he could to keep the Gophers in it.
What we learned about the Gophers is, no matter what the talent level is in Minnesota, they cannot win with Tim Brewster at the helm. If you watched the game against the Cats, you had to question the play calling on the last drive.
Simply put, there is talent here, but the coaching staff cannot get the most out of it. They need to get MarQueis Gray the ball more. If he played anywhere else in the nation they would find ways to get him the ball.
The Gophers are headed towards a new direction, and for the sake of the overall power of the conference I hope they get a Tony Dungy to replace Brewster.
Up next is a trip to Madison for the Paul Bunyan Ax. A Gopher loss and Brewster may be counting his millions in the unemployment line.
