Former Minnesota Twin Killebrew entering hospice care

My all-time sports hero since I started following sports in 1968... he is a real example of what a person and a man should be. I salute you for being a hero to me and am praying and wishing you and your family peace and serenity. God be with you and may we meet in Heaven.  (May 13, 2011 | post #18)

Minnesota Gophers coach Tubby Smith bringing in two recruits

The Gophers had a similar situation a few years ago with Kris Humphries lighting it up with rebounds and points but no PG and not much of other cast members. They may have been worse than in their record but it sure feels the same this year, especially with the losses of players they've had. With no Nolan and no Hoff next year, the Gophers will need a true and talented PG and hopefully Mbakwe back ... if not they will need help and that spells another sub 9 win BT season.  (Mar 5, 2011 | post #9)

Tubby Smith skeptical of Gophers' NCAA chances after loss

The Gophers are playing "not to lose" (an ancient saying but true). Tubby has his young (and older) players on pins and needles and fear abounds in their minds versus a go get them attitude with a clear sense of nothing to lose (like PSU, MSU and Mich have shown). Once a team blinks the other team pounces. Tubby has not instilled that in these guys and they play with doubt and fear.  (Feb 27, 2011 | post #21)

This is yet another case of home refereeing ... it was so obvious and yet no calls, none on the blatant grabbing, pushing and hacking of Hoff.  (Jan 29, 2011 | post #1)

Michigan State 71, Gophers 62: Minnesota folds, gets outs...

Brewster was obvious .... now Tubby is rising to the occasion of questionable traits and he will be in a very HOT SEAT if they lose to Indiana and go less than 9-9 in the BT this season. This team is showing NO SIGN of IMPROVEMENT in the progressive span of 4 years with Tubby.  (Dec 31, 2010 | post #4)

Gophers fan accused of assaulting 2 Badgers fans

And how many academic and world contributors has the UofW produced in the past 100 years? The UofMn is far above the UofW academically and overall. You are known as a "party school."  (Dec 30, 2010 | post #29)

Dayton on stadium: 'We need to get this done'

PRIORITIES, my friends, PRIORITIES. The state budgets are stressed liked never before and we are headed to dire problems within the next 10 months.  (Dec 21, 2010 | post #130)

Vikings 'have concerns' about playing in Metrodome next year

If you have heard about "shock policy" or "shock economics" or "shock ..." - well, this is one more example of how we are all manipulated. Yet another shock to propel people to build a stadium. Shame, shame, shame. Wake up Americans! ! ! ! !  (Dec 17, 2010 | post #161)

Tubby Smith lands talented Tennessee guard

Nice but ... you still need a highly talented PG every two years to make the other big guys and the team contend for a final four... otherwise, this team will copy the Twins in being good but not good enough. PG's are the glue and play maker of all great teams.  (Oct 30, 2010 | post #4)

Tim Brewster says he's still on the job as Minnesota Goph...

Weber was not only in a confusing system that Brewster created, he was and is NOT a Div I QB ... very inconsistent (as noted by TV commentator), and never ever good in the clutch.  (Oct 17, 2010 | post #94)
