What happened to all the Tubby critics? In the closet waiting for a 1st round loss? Great coachiong job by the Tubbster and his staff. Nice effort by the Gophers in the Big Ten tourney. On any given night they can play with any team in the conference.
Good Job

I am sure fatigue had a lot to do with yesterdays game. Not too many teams can play at a high level for 4 days in a row.

I think the Gophers win their first game and have a chance again in the second game. They have to play the way they played against Michigan State & Purdue.

Go Gophers!!

Great finish but the only noise they will make is a big "THUD"

Go Gophers!
I'm not surprised they lost to Ohio state at all, they played at such a high level against Michigan State and Purdue they had to be exhausted Sunday. After getting some rest this week I like their chances in tourney. I think they could win 2 and maybe 3 games.
Nice to see some progress despite some of the set backs this year with idiot players wasting their opportunities and getting suspended.

Im a Gopher fan as much as the next guy but its hard to get behind them when one already knows what the outcome will be.

1 and done. They just dont have the talent to consistently play at a high level.

Just keepin' it real.

I honestly feel that we have a decent chance at the Sweet Sixteen. We can certainly play with Xavier. Combine that with the fact that the first two games are in Milwaukee and we definitely can get there.

Here's a thought-find a way for the top 3 pt shooter in the country to take more than 2 shot a game and score 0 points. Tubby is offensively challenged to say the least. Have you ever heard of ball screen or back picks , back doors double screens off the baseline?-any Jr. High coach could set him up-really pathetic

Check my other post. ZERO points for Hoffarber only getting off two shots!!. This is unexcuseable for a big time program and shows you how inept Tubby is on the offensive end of the floor.Gophers will be one and done with this lame offensive scheme or lack of it!!!

Wow there's a surprise...a team that was 'disrespected' by everyone. Let me guess, no one outside of that locker room believed in you guys. Wait, it's you guys against the world. Or maybe 'we gonna shock the world' right?

Can someone please come up with something new????

Here's a hint for getting respect --play better!!! Play hard every night out and you'll get respect within your league and nationally. Then you won't need to buy t-shirts talking about it.

Hey gophs.Ya got some respect from the selection committee now whadda ya say we make them look like they picked the right team.If you play hard you can beat Xavier.I'm just afraid of which gophers team is going to show.I hope we can get a good bunch of rowdy fans to take the short trip to milwaukee.That would be a big +.
