From USA Today:
Two days later, neither Wisconsin coach Brett Bielema or Minnesota coach Tim Brewster were backing down from their harsh words following Bielema's decision to go for two points with the Badgers up 41-16 and 6:39 left in the fourth quarter.
The attempt failed, but that didn't satisfy Brewster, who chastized his counterpart at the end of game. Bielema defended his decision Saturday, citing "the card" that says go for two when up by 25.
Speaking at his weekly press conference on Monday, Bielema made it clear his perspective remained the same: "I answered on Saturday the same way I answer it today, the same way I'll answer it a year from now."
That didn't sit well with Brewster, who had not calmed down in the 48 hours after the loss.
"I thought it was a very poor decision by a head football coach and he'll have to live with that," Brewster said. "It was wrong. Everybody in here knows it and everybody in college football knows it. It was wrong."
The disappointing thing about this spat is when the teams meet again, one coach may not be there. The Gophers are at 1-5 and Brewster's job security is shaky at best.
Are we still talking about this? Like I turned on sports radio today to take a break from all of the political discussion I normally am locked into and apparently Minnesota coach Tim Brewster still has his panties in a bunch over Bielema going for 2 in the 4th quarter when he was up by 25? Whaaaaaaaaa Wisconsin went for 2, Whaaaaaaa Bret Bielema's a meanie, Whaaaaaaaaa I can never get past level 6 in Tetris. Typical Minnesota. I mean have some pride for once! Here's a thought, how about not getting down by 25 to begin with! Then you won't have to worry about Bielema going to a 'coach's card' that he must have developed while played Madden on 'rookie.' Like to me the only disappointing thing here is the way Bielema copped out and blamed the call on a coach's card. Here's how the sequence should have gone:
Reporter: Why did you decide to go for 2 in the 4th when you already had the game under control?
Bielema: Because I couldn't go for 3.
Boom. Done. I mean these two school's are blood rivals for crying out loud! And losing to Wisconsin is the least of Tim Brewster's problems. I think if I was a Big Ten coach losing to South Dakota State at home I'd have bigger priorities than whining about how the Badgers threw mud in my eye. In fact maybe just start by introducing yourself. Like I didn't even know who Tim Brewster was until this article and he's apparently been coaching the Gophers for five years. Not a good sign when you're a major college coach and this is your google image search:
So if I'm Tim Brewster I'd be concentrating on how to save my job and less worried about the future Rose Bowl champion kicking me when I'm down. See what I did there?
PS: Brewster's Millions is comedic genius and anyone whos says otherwise is a liar and a terrorist.
