A.J. Barker quits Jerry Kill's Gopher team and fans take sides

The University of MInnesota's leading receiver quit the team Sunday shortly before publishing a 4,000 word blog post leveling charges of harsh treatment and manipulation by Head Football Coach Jerry Kill.


  1. Folks took sides, even before comment from the university.

  2. Even Vikings punter Chris Kluwe joined the Barker bandwagon.

  3. Some people started seeing W's. Red ones.

  4. But there were detractors, too.

  5. Lots thought his letter sounded like the work act of a self-entitled kid who 'probably got ribbons for participation his whole life.'
  6. And some folks just seemed overwhelmed with the situation.

  7. Sorry, Brett. Nope.
