Jug-heads: Gophers loss among worst ever

All of a sudden, that close loss to USC seems like complete science fiction. Michigan 58, Minnesota 0. Gophers fans? Marooned again.
Publish date:

You wouldn't think there would be much to say about a 58-0 loss to Michigan. After all, the Gophers really didn't do much. Except give up a bunch of points at an historic rate.

So, yeah, we guess there is plenty to cover in this Wolverine debacle -- a real-life movie much worse than "X-Men 3."

Here's the quick rundown:

- Sid Hartman blames it all on former Minnesota Coach Tim Brewster.

-Chip Scoggins says this Gopher D is simply the worst.

-Did we mention it was the worst Gophers loss in Big 10 history?

-Here's a look at that season-by-season, game-by-game history since 1882. Enjoy.

-Michigan reporters? Too polite to rip the lowly Gophers. Too busy gushing over the great Denard Robinson.

-Roughest headline? 'Impotent Gophers...', by the Pioneer Press.

-Weird PiPress coincidence? Headline which said Max Shortell 'fires blanks' -- yikes.

Your turn. Any last words for Minnesota's latest meltdown? Let us know, right now....
