Don't worry-IU will crush the Gophers as usual! The performance by the Gophers in the first half against NU was truly revolting! Tubby is a tanker!!!

get off tubby homo. We all know this team sucks, but it's our team and we wish them the best. Tubby WILL have the Gophs in the top tier of the big ten after this bunch of underachievers (or maybe over achievers are gone), maybe that is what scares you, Gopher B-ball Nation back on top...but good luck cheese head with your team in the NCAA.

FlaFan yout predictions about the Gophers are much like the weather they are usually wrong.(no offense to meterologists). The Gophers again showed that their defense has improved under Tubby, they never give up and continue to work hard from start to finish. The result was another "W". To pretend to be Gopher fans that say this team sucks shows you are not really a true Gopher fan. They are the 6th seed and deserve to be. Excuses for your negative comments about a group of kids that give it their all are unacepptable.

Why can't a Gopher fan say they suck. So a 'true' fan has to always speak of the locals in positive terms. Hogwash. A fan expects their teams to be competitive and play hard at the very least. I was very disappointed in the the UofM football team this past year. Actually disgusted is a more accurate term. That being said - I think Tubby was done a very good job this year after inheriting a poor team with poor fundementals and making excellent progress on the defensive end of the floor - where games are won. I'm very optimistic about Gopher BB's futures under Tubby.

Now now don't get defensive. The objective is that people respond in a more favorable way using poitive words to describe a person, situation or in this matter a team. It in no way describes whether the team is of high caliber or not. I gauratee you a team will play better with a positive fan base behind them rather than one that says and thinks they suck. People can play games with words. Remember when in school too many years ago to remember it all when "Humpty Dumpty" said "When I choose a word it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less." So choose your words carefully. Go Gophers.

I have not missed one prediction-IU will lay the points tonite-I have already put my money where my mouth is. IU will win --it is a lock! Gophers are pretenders and dont even belong in the mickey mouse NIT. By the way, Gophers didnt cover yesterday, thank you very much!

You are not allowed to say any MN sucks because it isnt nice and you are not a true fan! This, by the way , explains why most MN do suck year after year-no expectations. We fired our last FB coach here at Florida when he went 7-4. They would have named a street after him up there in loser land!

People need to realize that "flaflan" or whatever his name is does not really think Tubby is a bad coach. He has mastered the system and realizes that if he says he sucks at coaching, then there will be a huge response and it gives him something to read about. Because of that I feel like he is too smart to actually believe that Tubby is a bad coach. Smart people look at Tubby's record and realize that he will be in the Hall of Fame someday down the road. Flalala knows that.

monson's players were scared stiff. They won this game purely because of smiths coaching. once tubby gets his players in the gopher basketball team will be fine.

The football team on the other hand is completely different. the Huckster took masons players and tanked the season. He cannot coach. He did nothing to improve that team, just made them worse.

It really is mystifying how ignorant some people are. Get a clue. Tubby has been successful with every team he's been with. Remember what you had last year? Look what Tubby has done with this same group of "players".

You're participating in a open forum, so don't expect anything you read to be well thought out or insightful. Who cares what this person or that person thinks-- it's like the old joke: one out of every four people have some sort of mental instability-- if you have three normal friends, guess what! If you're reading this for anything more than entertainment purposes, you've set the bar WAY, WAY TOO HIGH!

Spoken like a treu elitest!! Talk about arrogance! On the other hand-it is the internet and you will see anything written much to the consternation of the Gopher kool aid drinkers.
