Hmmm. Typical 'fans' here jumping off this bandwagon. Tubby (btw wtf is with that name?) has been busy throwing his playas under the bus. And, you losers can't figure out why MN does not attract quality athletes...

Just another day in loserville...

This is probably over optimistic. The Gophers would have to win both remaining regualr season games - quite possible. Then they would have to go to at least teh semi's of the conference tournament to be on the bubble. The lack of PG depth quickly made ruin of what potentially would have been an exciting season.

I have an idea. I am going to watch the game tonight so I can enjoy our guys trying to win the game. If we win the game I will be happy because we won the game, if we lose the game I will be sad because we lost the game. I will leave those of you who have a different agenda to do whatever you will do.

Go Gophers!!

$2 million a year for this??Tubby needs to give back his salary. He has been robbing us for four years! What a bust!

If they win their last two regular season games, they should make the NIT. If they lose those two, plus the play-in game for the Big 10 playoff, they'll be done for the year.

Things didn't work out this year, so what!

Minnesota still needs to keep Tubby...he'll get them back on track.

Fire Tubby. He let this team fall apart. Sure, some of the fault is with the players....but if that is how we are going to judge then why have coaches at all?

Now our hopes turn to making it to the NIT semi's in Madison Square. Perhaps a consolation prize.
