08:16 AM ET 10.05 | If Jerry Kill has one thing down it's speaking from the heart. Kill provided another unvarnished assessment of his program Tuesday in reviewing the Gophers 58-0 thrashing at Michigan and their 1-4 start. ... Kill has heard more criticism from fans the past two weeks because of the team's poor performances, even though the Gophers lack of talent across the board is undeniable. Kill was asked if the past few weeks have presented a harsh reminder of just how far this program has fallen and the monumental rebuilding job he faces. "We're embarrassed," he said. "We let the state of Minnesota I mean, that's not how it's supposed to be done. I told our whole team. I said Bud Grant would be ashamed of us."

I doubt any of these current Gophers have any idea who Bud Grant is. But it is embarrassing how bad this team is and how far the program has fallen. And with Nebraska, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan in their conference Minnesota won't be a factor anytime in the forseeable future if ever. The only hope is to somehow lure a really big name coach with a proven track record. Say what you will about him but they should have gone after Mike Leach.

The cupboards were bare, when Kill got here. 21 players were academically ineligible. At least Kill has been honest. The kids couldn't even read a playbook, for crying out loud. What the hell was Brewster doing, and what was the AD doing?

Might check their golf scores.
