This has nothing to do with the Wolves, but today's Sid column about the Gopher football program is one for the ages. Watch and learn as Sid takes a view of the wreckage after the Brew Crew goes down (hard) to a D1-AA nobody:

According to, Ohio State is the Big Ten leader with a budget of $32.3 million. Iowa is second at $26.90 million, followed by Wisconsin ($22.71), Penn State ($19.13), Michigan ($18.03), Michigan State ($15.86), Northwestern ($15.71), Purdue ($12.66), Indiana ($11.84), Illinois ($10.49) and then the Gophers at $9.25 million.

And it's no coincidence the lowest-spending teams in the conference are typically the second-division teams, while the big spenders generally finish at or near the top.


Of course! They don't spend enough.  Maybe Sid was simply trying to write a column as embarrassing as a loss to South Dakota.
