Continued: Reusse: It's up to you, Mr. Chairman, to save Minnesotans further embarrassment

Agreed, Mike. That’s why I gave you a list of eight humiliations for the Gophers over the past 51 days. As for the “eye test,” there are reports that seven Minnesotans suffered temporary blindness watching the telecast of the Gophers’ 53-51 loss at Nebraska.

• You also refuted the long-held notion that importance is placed on a team’s past 10 games:

“We took it out [of the selection criteria] because folks in the media and elsewhere were really fixating on that as an overly weighted determinant ...”

OK, Mike, but can I interest you in the past 14 games as criteria?

If you want to keep perspective over one game, the abomination for the Gophers was the upset of Indiana. There were nine games — yup, nine of 14 — where Tubby’s bricklayers scored 53 points or fewer in regulation.

And I haven’t even mentioned the turnovers.

Mike, we’re begging here.

Show the nation your committee has standards.

Don’t call our name Sunday. We’re busy. We have another failed coach to pay off.


Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
