Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster believes that his squad could be 5-1 and sitting near the top of the Big Ten right now. The coach has remained positive about his Golden Gophers squad despite the current five game losing streak that has included dropping games to Northern Illinois and South Dakota. In fact Minnesota's only win was a 24-17 squeaker against Middle Tennessee. Brewster has been sitting on a flaming hot seat since the beginning of the season, and now it looks like his time at Minnesota could be closing quickly.
Yahoo! Sports' Tom Dienhnart reported Friday that Brewster may be coaching for his job against Purdue on Saturday.
Granted, Minnesota's AD could have been having routine discussions with Brewster's representatives, but chances are that this threat could be very real. Brewster's firing has been a done deal in the opinion of many, and this just puts a final date on it.
