    Minnesota Fans

    Whalen, while having no coaching experience, she is a home run hire. Needs a good staff, has a very high basketball IQ, will be a great recruiter, should be able to lock up the borders. Most are very happy with the hire. Certainly an icon in Minnesota and women's basketball.

    Shepard Transferring

    Good points. She was definately one of the main ones involved with Yori being gone. It appeared she worked even less this past year getting in shape than under Yori.

    O.T. The passing of an icon

    Hadn't heard about Chuck Barris. The Gong Show was one of the funniest shows on TV, maybe ever.

    Northwestern BB and Minnesota BB Doing More with Less

    Hate is maybe a little strong. Fans were certainly split on Pitino just like they are with Miles. As a Gopher fan I don't think it is correct to say everyone HATED him.

    Gavitt Games 2016

    Minnesota played well in beating St Johns last night 92-86. Freshman Amir Coffey scored 30. The games end up tied again 4-4.

    Is Crean in a bit of trouble?

    The booing got pretty loud last night when Iowa was kicking their ass at home in Assembly.

    Molinari named assistant coach

    Not sure why you wouldn't. We are most likely getting an assistant coach who: -Has been a Division 1 head basketball coach for 19 years -Has won a conference title at all three of his stops - Northern Illinois, Bradley, and Western Illinois -Has NCAA tourney experience as both a HC (two appearances) and as an assistant (six appearances and one F4 with Depaul) -Has served as a NBA Scout for the Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat -Is good friends with our Head basketball coach and is said to be on the same wave length in terms of philosophies -Is widely respected in the game, do some research and you will see positive quotes from some of the best coaches in the game regarding Molinari -Has deep recruiting ties to the B1G conference, specifically in talent rich Chicago area -Regarded as one of the best defensive minds in the college game. Anybody who doesn't think this would be an amazing hire needs to get their head examined. There are very few programs in the country that have a guy with this pedigree on their bench not as the head coach, but as an assistant. Add to this that the last time he was an assistant in the B1G he was ranked by some publications as the best assistant in the conference. Coach Mo would be a great get for the Huskers. Still very well thought of around the Gopher program from when he was an assistant and fill in head coach. Great defensive coach, A ton of experience and a great guy.

    2013 Iowa vs Minnesota/Illinois

    For Minnesota, it was strength of schedule and wins over top 50 and top 100 rpi teams. They were ranked as high as 8th in the polls at one point, only loss in the non conference was to Duke, beat Memphis, Stanford and Florida state. Then they folded down the stretch as they did many a time with Tubby as their coach. Also beat #1 Indiana in conference.

    Comments From Opposing Fans

    Most of the conversations I had and read on Gopher sites were that there was much concern about playing in Lincoln. Hollins hurt and the Huskers record at home would suggest nothing else. Now I think most Gopher fans thought there was still a chance, but 9 turnovers from Mathieu and poor free throw shooting and some spotty defense along with the Huskers shooting and playing very well put an end to that chance

    Game Day Essentials: Game #19 vs Minnesota

    Last time out: Lost at Purdue ????? Beat Wisconsin at home, no big deal, good luck with the game.
  11. Petteway has to be in consideration for that award. Another name to throw into the conversation is Dre Matthieu from Minnesota. Doing a great job at running the point for the Gophers.
  12. Hammons did play well today, but he has been very inconsistent this year, takes games off at times.

    Historic Game of the week 95-96 @Minnesota

    Lot of talent on both of those teams. At least 6 guys from both teams got to play in the NBA.

    B1G Disparity

    Good points. I would bet that hockey at Michigan comes close to breaking even, may even make money. I know hockey at Minnesota and Wisconsin make some money.
