But then I always feel that way at the start of the season, even when way less optimistic.

Funny. That was my thought this morning. I know it's non-conference, but the game can't start soon enough.

I'm excited for Gopher football but trying to avoid channeling any echoes of Tim Brewster going into 2019.

Some have characterized me as being at a 3.6 roentgen (not great, not terrible) but in reality this is because they only measure to that level. My level of excitement is much, much higher than that. People just won't admit it.

4. I think it gets hot right before kickoff and the back to warm...an excited warm, but warm. Moves to Hot if Gophs are 3-0 starting the conference games. Very Hot if 5-0 for Nebby. Nuclear Hot if 8-0 for PSU.

Brewster was a failure, but I'll always enjoy getting my chili hot

Agree! Brewster made it okay to dream big. To want championships. I loved all of the great things Mason did, but the know your role routine started to bother me toward the end. I felt that the program could do better.

With that said, my chili is very hot. I am looking forward to it getting Chernobyl hot!

I suspect Brewster's reputation has generally recovered slightly because:

1. Time.

2. Hasn't had anything bad to say about the U or anyone at it since he left.....

I'd take him back as a TE coach / crooter in a heartbeat.

The only thing dampening my enthusiasm for the opener is the fact that it is a late one, with a work day looming the next morning... Let's just say, I will be unable to enjoy it in my usual "all out" fashion...

I typically make the Gopher opener on Thursday night part of a 5 day weekend. I take Thurs Fri off and Mon is Labor Day. Go early, hit a bar or two mid afternoon, then to tailgate lot, then to game, then home to absorb all the other game results and relive the Gopher victory well into the weee hours. Followed by a Friday where I get up when I feel like it and then head to the cabin for a long weekend of both lake and college football viewing on TV. It has become a fun annual tradition for me. Glad the Gopher opener has moved to Thurs nights but if my memory serves me we have a traditional Saturday or two coming up for openers in upcoming seasons.

+1 for the reference. Need to keep water flowing to the core.


According to Brew, if you want some you gotta bring some. I’m bringing a whole lot of chili on Thursday.

Ditto on the long weekend. Half day workday Thursday for me. I'll take in the Fair Sat or Sunday as part of the long weekend.
