Hey Kinnick they could always get a job at Iowa . At least they can coach up poor recruits.

I wish Sid had noticed that Morneau has worked hard to change his swing the last two years. As a result he is no longer a scoreboard buster with a smooth long swing and HOF candidate. He is waiting longer for the pitch to get deep and hits the ball with a short swing with as little hand and arm motion as possible before he swings forward. He is hitting more balls towards the shortstop and with less power. Morneau tries to swing more violently to make up for the power he lost with the shorter swing. The short violent swing has resulted in numerous wrist and neck injuries. What a sad state of affairs for what was the twins best hitter for power and average ever. The Twins coaches and Manager and management need to rid the Team of "The Twins Way" before the present minor league phenoms get to Minneapolis.

Justins best years are behind him.he'd rather watch hockey than play baseball. But the money is just too good to retire. Nice guy BUT trade him!

Is Flip Saunders an option to coach Gophers BB?

I was at that game when Spitka chewed out Harbaugh. What a jerk he was and the Vikings came back and won that game thanks to Spitka. I also thought it was Walker Lee Ashley that ran back that interception.

Exactly what has Kill done to be shown the door? In 2 years, he's practically got the football team close to the level of play of Mason. You guys are ridiculous....especially when one of you is called kinnick. We all know where your allegiance lies...and that's because you're scared.

"Hey Kinnick they could always get a job at Iowa . At least they can coach up poor recruits"..Not without a Special-Ed Credential.
