Minnesota Gophers on NIT bubble

For the past month and a half, the Gophers played like a basketball team that clearly didn't belong in the NCAA tournament. Full Story

Mbakwe is more likely to flee for the NBA - I cannot imagine anyone taking Sampson III. While I know that sometimes a run in the NIT helps build momentum for next season, the Gophers are doing so poorly that I don't think fans can bear to watch this anymore. Todays game against Northwestern was hard to watch mostly. This team has nose-dived and the NIT would just be more of the same.

A run in the NIT???? They can't make a shot over 10 feet...free throws are out of range.

They should do us all a favor and decline any postseason offer! Show some class...they've already proved they aren't very good.
gophers are gross

are you kidding me? at this point does ANYONE really want to even watch this truly team of chokers and underachievers? NIT? yet again, how disgusting. Time for Tubby to take the A train out of town and start over....AGAIN......clearly his plan hasn't worked.

that bubble burst yhe moment they started Big 10 play. Other teams didnt even have to come out to the 3pt line to defend because they knew the goofs weren't going to attemp a shot.
