No comparison Jerry? Wow...Gopher Football was that low? Who let it get "that low"? Sad state of affairs as can Sid possibly alibi for Maturi? He was a joke.

I'm looking forward to next season. Kill had a bad half-quarter yesterday and made big mistakes this year, but by all rights, the Gophers outplayed a superior team in Texas Tech and should have won. That's encouraging. And Northern Illinois' success this year, with Kill's players, is a startling accomplishment. Starting next season, I hope and expect to see additional progress. Another 2-6 Big Ten season will not do.

This guy is a bigger windbag than brewster! It's just sad how people buy into this nonsense and enable failure. 6 years and $100's of millions and ZERO bowl wins after Mason, screaming jerry is CLEARLY not the answer!!

Progress is going from 2-6 to 2-7 when it matters??

Jerry: Two very large blunders on your part: First, the rash of flagrant penalties on a key first-half drive and your off-the-wall sideline reaction were unacceptable (you even left the guy in the game who accounted for the penalties). Secondly, in the fourth quarter you switched from Nelson to Gray and you had Gray throw two (incomplete) passes. Jerry, were you watching all season? The only explanation I can think of is you felt you 'owed it' to Gray. Jerry, I made the same mistake in T-Ball but I learned from that. Jerry, this is the big-time! The fifty years of Gopher FB futility continues.

We need to find a big time coach, not a trailer park hick.

If I were one of the refs last night, I would have taken that screaming, crying, tantrum-throwing baby over my knee and paddled his ___ right there on national TV!

two and seven is the only thing that matters. Under every scenario this season was a failure, yet Kill says there was improvement? Really?

Was it a "positive" to pay $800,000 to duck national power North Carolina, jerr?
