Win the Big ten tournament? what a joke-even if they win today it will be all over tomorrow-the Gopher BB program is a joke just like the rest of the big time sports at MN. By the way,k Jim Jackson is an annoying jerk .

this joe lunardi guy where did they find him? He was pushing seton hall who gave up 106 to providence, nd Illinois. Which the gophers beat on their home court. The gophs get ripped by the refs. the purdue game at home they give kramer flop calls. il game they were grabbing guys at the end to stop the clock and they called traveling calls or that game isn't close.
They aren't the best but they deserve more respect thana they get.

I think it is perfectly fair to say what Jackson said. This team has floundered all season, despite very good talent. They showed what they could do when they beat a Top 20 team in Butler at a neutral site and handily beat OSU and Wisconsin at the barn only to lose by a gigantic number at OSU.

I believe the Gophers could squeeze in if they got to the Big Ten championship and lost. However, the only way they will deserve to be in the Big Dance is to sweep the three co-champs in the conference tournament.

Every time I stood in the student section this season I would turn to my friends and say the exact same thing- despite whoever we were playing... We can win this... we have the talent and the ability to play with anyone in the country. And at the same time we have the ability to lose to Minnesota-Duluth if we don't focus... I think the gophers have the talent to win the tourney- but no... they won't.
