Continued: Patrick Reusse: Reality does the twist in hands of some local losers

Brewster went 1-2 and wanted the Gophers fan base, aka Dinkytown, to celebrate the overtime victory over Miami (Ohio) as a grand achievement.

The Gophers opened the Big Ten at home by losing by the exact betting lines -- 14 to Purdue, 23 to Ohio State -- and Brewster thumped his chest as if they were upset victories. On Saturday, he inspired his team to a 40-20 loss to Indiana. A year earlier, 16 of his starters were involved in a 63-26 embarrassment of the Hoosiers.

Five weeks ago, it was suggested here that Brewster "shut up and coach." We now know for sure that he's incapable of the former, and after a half-dozen games, it's not too early to have serious doubts about the latter.

Patrick Reusse can be heard weekdays on AM-1500 KSTP at 6:45 and 7:45 a.m. and 4:40 p.m. • preusse@startribune.com
