So Long, Mase

A quick post just to beat Superrookie to the punch...

The University of Minnesota just announced that head football coach Glen Mason has been relieved of his duties. In turn, the university has been relieved of several million dollars by buying out the remaining three years of Mason's contract.

As a long-time Gophers football season ticket holder, I have to say that I am glad to see Mason go. If mediocrity was the goal, Mason excelled. But I'm not a fan of mediocrity.

Here's a short list of the people I'd like to see fill Mason's position (listed in alphabetical order):
--Art Briles, head coach at the University of Houston
--Terry Hoeppner, head coach at Indiana University
--Gary Pinkel, head coach at the University of Missouri
--Frank Solich, head coach at Ohio University (and formerly head coach at Nebraska)
