As polls go, this isn't even close.
Readers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune were asked if it was time for Minnesota to make a coaching change. A whopping 87.2% said it was, with 67.4% of the respondents saying Tim Brewster should be fired now instead of at the end of the season.
It makes you wonder about the other 12.8%.
Yes, the natives are restless in the Twin Cities. A 41-38 loss to Division I-AA South Dakota will do that.
Count university president Bob Bruininks among the disappointed. "I don't feel very good; I feel pretty low about this game, and I think everybody else does," he said.
This isn't the first time Brewster has experienced an embarrassing loss. He's actually accomplished at it. In 2007, his Golden Gophers lost to Bowling Green and Division I-AA North Dakota State. But it was his first season as coach and the locals gave him a pass.
Now with a $288.5 million TCF Bank Stadium in its second season of operation, more is expected of the team.
"It's not just the [South Dakota loss], but the condition of the whole program, all things considered," former Minnesota All-American Bob Stein said. "The condition of the football program is shameful."
Not everybody is saying nasty things about the coach. Star Tribune columnist Jim Souhan writes of Brewster: "He is a wonderful recruiter in one respect. Nobody has done more to attract good football players to North and South Dakota."
Sid Hartman, the longtime columnist and cheerleader for local teams, went on a search for answers. He came up with this: Minnesota's football budget is last in the Big Ten.
OK, but what about the $288.5 million spent on the stadium?
Up next is USC, and the Star Tribune decided to conduct another poll to see how readers felt about Minnesota's chances. As you can see, there's not a lot of faith in the hometown team.
