    If Brewster had won here, the Rose Bowl Turf would be a sacred relic.

    Five darn good reasons to stay home.Ē

    Meatsauce has mentioned it on air multiple times.

    I donít get why people care if he runs on between quarters. He canít be the only coach who does that, or is he?
    OK. I knew what you were referring to. I was referring to the notion that the media Ďwantsí us to lose. That is far different than finding something PJ says or does annoying, etc.

    Re: the local sports media...

    Someone on Gopher Hole (can't remember who it was) a few years back made a very astute observation regarding our local sports media: most of them don't know the names of more than 3 or four players on the Gopher roster. Most of them couldn't tell you, if asked, who the Gophers are playing next week.

    When it comes to Gopher football, there's really no point in worrying about what the local sports media thinks — especially most of the radio people. They are entertainers. They have a job to do: performing their schtick. Their schtick doesn't really involve the Gopher football program.

    Hahahaha SOOO true! I left Minnesota long ago and when I watch games with Minnesotans (ie. my family), it drives me crazy how negative they are. Tanner goes 22 for 23 passing and they say...too bad he missed that one. OMG

    As someone prone to occasional sprints through the office I'll never understand why he's constantly ripped for the quarter sprint.

    How dare that man get oxygen to his brain, boost energy, and burn off excess adrenaline in a high stress enviornment!

    Because it is different and Minnesotans get uncomfortable with different.

    Don't hear it so much anymore but I remember when people were complaining about the defense raising the fist on 4th down.

    Gopher football hasn't been on the radar of the local "sports" personalities in this town as anything more then an easy whipping boy for years. They would toss in a shot at Gopher football, deserved or not because the program wasn't relevant so it was an easy thing to do.

    Start winning consistently and that will all change, won't happen over night, and will take time to cut into the Vikings hold on things but you can already see more positive Gopher coverage in the local media. And it will only improve if we keep taking care of business on the field and stay out of trouble off the field.

    Reusse is just trolling again. It's what he does now.

    Yes, he's taking a shot at Fleck; but if you read his tweet carefully you'll see that he's poking fun at Minnesota sports fans and their apathy toward Gopher football as well.

    Reuse dozes off to sleep every night dreaming of the days he could move his legs fast enough to even be considered a trot. A slight grin comes across his face as he dreams of coming out of the tunnel hand in hand with PJ leading an undefeated Gopher football team on to the gridiron.

    Reusse has a schtick, he doubles down on it every day of his life. Nobody could be that joyless!

    If PJ continues to win I bet that, gasp, he’s going to attract more believers and followers.

    Anyone that has lived elsewhere can tell you it isn’t that Minnesotans are negative, it’s that they are BS sniffers that believe results before promises. Regarding positivity: every time PJ and Co does well people come on here to savage the state, the fans, and “show me” fans.

    What I would caution some of you against is constant chastising of anyone and everyone in your personal sphere or online that wasn’t 100% on board from day 1. Then you will create a person hoping for him to fail. And if he stumbles they will be waiting to repay you. Be kind, be fair.

    Bingo, thanks. The apathy he points out is getting out of the barcalounger and actually attending games. There's a fair amount of Fleckters out here who resemble what he's poking fun at...

    I would like to think we are quickly approaching the point where the in fighting in the fanbase about the coach can go away and monikers like Fleckster will become a thing of the past around here.
