Why Not Not Minnesota?

24

My head is starting to spin... So Ted Glover writes this great piece about his experience watching USC beat Minnesota, and he simply asked, "No one expects an Ohio State level, but it’s a legitimate question to ask that if Iowa and Wisconsin can consistently compete at the top of the Big Ten, why not Minnesota?" Reader/commenter Albino Tornado sits down and explains exactly "Why Not Minnesota," in his artfully-titled piece. And now, the SBNation Minnesota Gopher Nation (odd fact: The blog is not named after the Minnesota sports program, but after the fact that all of the staff are currently employed as Go-Fors in their current jobs. You didn't actually think that there were six Gopher fans who can form complete sentences, did you?) has drafted a fantastic rebuttal called Why Not Not Minnesota? Or as my 6th Grade Grammar teacher would have called it, "Why Minnesota?" Go there and read it, it's a great (and accurate) perspective on expectations for 8 of the 12 teams in the conference. What do they all agree upon? That Tim Brewster must go. And as a Hawkeye fan, I find that very upsetting.
