Brandon Smith Leaves Team (maybe)

It appears that Gopher forward Brandon Smith will be leaving the team. Little to no information here.

Smith was very athletic, but raw, coming out of Henry, and pretty much refused to use his athleticism or go to class - to the point where he was suspended for part of last season.

Smith was the kind of recruit who would have been better served heading to a mid-major - which is where he will likely end up. This also frees up an additional scholarship for Tubby, and the way he is recruiting right now, that is a major positive.

In high school soccer news, from the Star Tribune:

Holy Angels boys' soccer coach Scott Eisentrager reports senior goalkeeper Mahshad Moin has committed to the University of Louisville. Moin was first team all-state in 2006 and first team All-Missota Conference in 2006 and 2007.

Just wanted to throw that out there.

The Eisentrager guy must be a hell of a coach...Tubby who?

That coach in an asshole! He's more classless than Belichick.
