Thanks to their strong performance in the Bahamas and a few foibles by previously ranked teams, the Golden Gophers will enter their Big Ten-ACC challenge game against Florida State Seminoles ranked 21st in the Associate Press poll. While the ranking will not help the team win any games, and will certainly decrease the odds that any opponents will overlook them, the recognition is good for the players and program, and just might get a few extra fans to trek out to The Barn on a cold winter night.

The exact game time is still up in the air, but the ACC-Big Ten Challenge TV schedule is out. You should be able to watch too. The barriers to seeing the Gophers have continued to fall this offseason. At about this time last year we learned that the Big Ten Network would be available by […]

So much for a big game in The Barn. At first glance this should be winnable for the Gophers. Miami will be without face-slapper extraordinaire Jack McClinton, and Miami basketball fans are notorious for arriving late or not at all. The game will be on Wednesday, December 2nd and will be the first match-up between the […]

Obviously some time has passed since the Gophers won on Tuesday against the Virginia Cavaliers. Just as obvious is the fact that I haven’t yet written anything until now. My apologies. The game ended very late, and I decided to be selfish and sleep before writing anything. I was planning to write last night, but […]

Virginia finished a disappointing season with a 17-16 overall record. Like most years, they started out hot, rising to a #23 ranking in the first month of the season, until their inevitable implosion. As part of the Big Ten-ACC Challenge, the Gophers will have a chance to start the implosion, as Ralph Sampson III takes […]

The Gophers face Florida State tomorrow night in the ACC-Big 1o Challenge, in what will be a key game for two possible bubble teams. While many will focus on Big 10 losing streak in these challenges, and apologists for both sides will defend their conference to the death, I am just happy that this marks […]
