Where the hell is Mark Parrish nowadays? Never should have bought him out.
He's in Tampa and I've met his mother and father quite a few times since they are very active in the hospital community. I also met them in 2006 at the Winter Games when I met most of the team. Good people and you could tell Lemaire just had it in for the man after hearing them talk about how he went from his poster child to doghouse shortly after his daughter was born. I would like to have him back because, well, it puts the $1M he's getting in salary from us to good use.

Haha oh the rivalry. It's always fun, though sometimes it goes too far. Im hoping for the dream finale, Finland-Sweden. High risk- high reward.

If a FAQ is ever made about the forum, that has to be the number one question. Fel96 has it right - instead of the [url] tag, you need the [yt] tag and only put in the stuff after "v=".

Put this in the stating the obvious category...

But, oh my gawd is this Minnesota Gopher football team terrible. You know your offense is bad when your best receiver is the back up QB... Who should probably be the starting QB anyway.

They do - I saw them play St. Thomas a couple years back but I think got kicked out of the MIAC for being so bad. But Minnesota could always play Virginia after their own upset asskicking today.

What size battery does it take to beat Tim Brewster's team? Answer: I-AA


Congratulations, Coach. In four years, you have managed to guide the Gophers to the three worst losses in school history: 55-0 to Iowa, 27-21 to 1-AA North Dakota State, and now Saturday's 41-38 loss to 1-AA South Dakota. Memo to Joel Maturi: enough is enough. Nothing can happen the rest of this season to make-up for another loss to a middle-tier FCS team. Remember the Jeremy Foley theory: what should be done eventually should happen immediately. Nobody wants their work criticized, especially in public. But the nice monetary buyout Brewster would receive offsets that problem.

Most of Brewster's coaches are capable of finding work elsewhere. Defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove? Not so much. It is obvious now why he was a coaching free-agent for an entire season. It is also obvious now why Nebraska ran him out of town. Where was the press-coverage on the pivotal 3rd-and-4 at the end of the game? It was very clear that South Dakota was either calling for a slant pass or a quarterback keeper. Brewster went hard at the defense in his postgame interview on the Big Ten Network. While correct, let's not forget that he let Eric Ellestad, who couldn't make a 40-yard field goal all of last year, and missed two against Middle Tennessee State, try a 48-yard field goal. Predictably, the kick wasn't even close. The reason Brewster had only one timeout late was because they wasted one on offense. What was the 4th-and-2 pitch-back play call? Why not try an onside kick at the end? Realistically, what were the chances that the defense could force a three-and-out? Although, what were the chances that Ellestad would have executed the kick?

...

Off-the-field incidents? They can be sort-of excused. Recruiting violations? The same. But a loss to South Dakota is inexcusable.

Sadly that doesn't even include the fact that Brewster doesn't have a signature win and is 0-for trophy games. He's a good recruiter but a horrible coach. And because of that Brewster needs to be canned and fast.
