This season has obviously been disappointing, but it pales in comparison to the tumultuous 2006-2007 season. No one expected the Gophers to have a good season, making the NIT would have been an accomplishment. But no one predicted that fans would completely give up on the program, Dan Monson would be fired before the Big [...]

The Gophers will enter Big Ten play with an 11-1 record, and will likely enter Big Ten play as the second highest ranked Big Ten team after beating South Dakota State on Christmas Eve Eve. It is obviously a little late for the traditional write-up, thanks to the hectic nature of the holiday season. Instead, [...]

I’ll say it as bluntly as possible: The Gophers are lucky that they’re playing the easiest part of their schedule now while Al Nolen is on the shelf rather than three weeks from now. Before this season there was a debate raging over whether Devoe Joseph or Al Nolen should handle the starting point guard [...]

Time to exhale. After a whirlwind opening to the 2010-11 season, the Gophers (#15 in the AP Poll!) have a couple days off before resuming their non-conference schedule against North Dakota State, which provides us an opportunity to sit back and analyze exactly what we have in the current squad. While it wasn’t crazy to [...]

It is with profound sadness that I write that there will be no game review for Minnesota’s monumental win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. There may one be in a few days, but as of now I have not seen the game. In a surreal turn of events, I found myself in the front [...]

Minnesota appeared to have no answer against the quick-hitting Siena Saints offense through much of the first half, but was able to turn the tables down the stretch to take home a thrilling 76-69 victory to improve to 2-0. Stymied by basket after basket from Siena’s Clarence Jackson, who scored a game high 29 points, [...]
