    Tim Brewster to Minnesota

    Looks like he's going to be a Gopher. Interesting pickup for Minnesota.

    Re: Tim Brewster

    Good pickup for MN. We were touting him before Chizik because of his recruiting skills. That's exactly what that program needs, a good recruiter. Minnesota has to compete with the rest of the Little 11 for their own recruits, especially Wisconsin in recent years.

    Tim Brewster new U of MN coach...

    One of the names rumored for the ISU job, Tim Brewster, was hired as the new Minnesota football coach. He has never been a coordinator or head coach at the college level, but is known as a strong recruiter. I wasn't very hot on him when ISU was looking, but who knows? For my money, I'll take Chizik.

    beat me to it! I love how the MPLS press is saying we know you've never heard of him, but here he is. Well I guess they weren't reading this board during our search, :)

    Re: Tim Brewster to Minnesota

    Minneapolis press wanted Tony Dungy to leave Colts for Gophers and Flip Saunders to leave Detroit for MN. Both would have to take big pay cuts. I'm not sure how this guy will fly with the HIGH expectations. If he does not go to a bowl in his first season, the faithful will be very unhappy. Tough position to be in for a new coach.

    Re: Tim Brewster to Minnesota

    Actually, Brewster was never a candidate for the ISU job inspite of internet speculation.

    Re: Tim Brewster to Minnesota

    It is really scary reading the MN press here and how similar it is to what I read on our boards from our fans. I know we have talked about this many times but the two programs have been very similar lately.

    Re: Tim Brewster to Minnesota

    Does anybody else think that the University of Minnesota could have done better?

    Re: Tim Brewster to Minnesota

    Not with thier current AD, I still cannot get over the 5 year extension in 05-06 then firing the coach a year later with a much larger buy-out needed. He has made some very questionable calls in just the three years I have been living up here.

    no, good pick up for them. I still liked him for us. That being said we did better. JP is the man

    Brewster will bring a lot to the table. Granted he has no head coaching experience but last time I checked either does our guy.

    Thank goodness the cyclones have Pollard as AD and not Joel Maturi.

    Re: Gophers hire Tim Brewster from Broncos

    Good choice by them. It will be interesting to see if he can pull some Texas kids clear up North. Brewters is supposed to be a heck of a recruiter. When they said we might get him I would have been happy with him.

    Re: Gophers hire Tim Brewster from Broncos

    It will be interesting to see what happens with recruits that are committed and the asst. coaches that have stuck around to keep recruiting after Mason was fired.
