Kill @ Minny
“The only thing they can get me for is running a funeral parlor without a license.”
Meyers........you're a cold bastard! You are calling for the axe on a sick man!
Jerry Kill and Minny have to be talking about disability for this guy? How can they allow a guy to be on the sideline
with such poor health and repeated seizures? Legally this has to be a minefield? I am sure they had planned to let him play out the season, but with the latest setback he HAS to be done at the University of Minnesota?
I can't see how they can move forward with the uncertainty around this health. I am sure he will be "convinced" to step aside for the advancement of the program now that the season is over.
This of course would be different than a firing, nevertheless, the end result is the same. There will be a new coach at UM next football season.

Not health, You dig into the allegations the Star WR made and go from there, With that and his record you can axe the guy and not worry about all the medical stuff
If Lame Sniffin goes what will daddy do for a job?
Looks like Auburn also axed all of the assistants. It wouldn't surprise me if they already have a full staff ready to be announced very soon.
Who ya thinking and what's your gut tell you?
It defies logic.
Kill for one is not a great coach. Not even a very good one yet a program like UMinn with its vast resources and large student body, can't find a more quality head coach?
Of course they can and they'll need to.
It wouldn't surprise me if they consider someone like a Darrell Hazell who's led Kent State to their best outing in 40 years.
Now this would be very......interesting!
I couldn't agree with you more. I would certainly have mixed feelings about this move, but think
that Coach Hazell would be a great candidate!
Danny Hope at Purdue and Timmy Beckman at Illinois. Could these guys
be next on the chopping block?
Time for the conference to improve and/or upgrade. I think Coach Meyer's performance in year one has
served notice that you don't years to turn your squad into a .500 team. With expansion and more cash
for the conference, the time is now to win on the field.
I would like to see Coach Hazell get an opportunity somewhere.
Not a clue. You would think it would be hard to get someone big to just walk into that place. But money does talk.
I like Minneapolis/St. Paul for a variety of reasons not related to the weather. Winters are brutally cold and the summers are horrendously windy. Plus you have to carry coins in your pocket to keep from being carried away by the mosquitoes aka pterodactyls.
Been to the lakes a few times...those skeeters are healthier than the ones in the everglades. I thought I was swatting small birds.
I swear I lost a measurable amount of blood watching 4th of July fireworks one evening up there.
Kill was at N Illinois and had that program on the rise too. Hazell is doing a great job at Kent St. But you can only do so much. Hazell and Kill teaching these kids is wonderful, but it is only as good as the MAC. You can't teach 2nd tier players to be awesome vs B1G competition each and every week. Well unless you have 7 schools in the B1G that are weaker than the MAC. Then yes he might do well.
If I was Minny or Purdue, I would go after a name that can recruit. That's it. A coach who can recruit nationally and has a way of snagging recruits out of southern and western states. Once recruits come in then it can get better in the future.
Coaches at BC, Purdue gone also....
What vast resources are you talking about? Minnesota high schools produce almost zero top shelf players.
You are not kidding. I lived there for a spell and once unknowingly left the door cracked to the mud room WITH the light on at night. Woke up the next day and holy chit! I had unknown insect samples that would excite any reasonable entomologist.
Buyouts are going to cost them millions, that will pinch the recruiting slush fund for a few years.
Did the offensive guru Bollman get canned too?
U of Minn is a big boy in many areas. It has a world class academic rep., large student body and alumni, and generates a ton of revenue through grant dollars and other streams. Big city too. The potential is there and I think that is what he is talking. To be sure their historic prowess in sports has been average at best..
At $78 million per year, Minnesota has the 23rd largest athletic budget of any public college. Its budget is bigger than Florida State, UNC, UCLA, Cal, Missouri, Clemson... It has the third largest enrollment for a single campus (OSU is now #2, Arizona State #1). It is located in the 16th largest metropolitan area in the country. They have a brand new on-campus stadium.
Yes, the talent isn't great but it doesn't help when your best HS players are going to OOS schools. Of Minnesota's five best 2013 players, they are going to Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Iowa, Boston College (maybe not now), and undecided. They have to keep their best players home.
25 recruits a year. That's all it takes. Manage attrition to keep 85 on the roster. Sign 7 out of Minnesota's best 10, get 7 from Ohio, 2 from Wisconsin, 2 from California, 2 from Florida, 5 from Texas and you're at 25. And hit the Midwest JCs hard...they only have two years of eligibility and the Twin Cities offer bountiful employment opportunities.
There you have it. By the numbers. U of Minn is not a run of the mill institution. Bugs, cold and wind aside, it always been a mystery to me why they can't get it going in sports.
