According to James Cimburek of the Yankton Daily Press, Colton Iverson has asked for and been given a release from his scholarship with the Gophers. Cimburek was notified via e-mail from Iverson’s father. This is a surprising, though hardly shocking development. Iverson struggled much of the season, and lost his spot in the starting line-up […]

With one game left before the Big Ten season starts, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what this team is capable of and what they need to work on. Of course, they’ve been physical inside thanks to the addition of Trevor Mbakwe and overachievement by Mo Walker, have been misers on defense, shot the ball […]

What’s nearly 21 feet tall, 739 pounds, and ready to wreak havoc on the oddly undersized Big Ten? This isn’t a joke in need of a punch line. The Gophers have the best front court in the Big Ten, and it isn’t even that close. I try to avoid positive hyperbole as much as possible. […]

If you haven’t had enough previewing of tomorrow’s first round NCAA tournament game, why not a look at the keys to the game and a prediction? Keys for the Gophers 1. Establish an inside presence. Ralph Sampson will need to be strong with the ball, and Colton Iverson will need to be strong with his […]

The reaction: “We all jumped together,” point guard Devoe Joseph said. “I think we might have damaged the couch in there.” Damaged would be putting it mildly. “We did break the couch,” shooting guard Lawrence Westbrook confirmed. “We were excited to see our name.” “I honestly had no clue,” said Joseph, who made the All-Tournament […]

Pathetic. Embarrassing. Unbelievable. What ever negative word someone wants to use to describe the Gophers effortless, aloof performance against the Michigan Wolverines would probably be deserved. At a time when Minnesota needed to come out firing against a team with nothing to play for, a time that called for nothing more than a solid performance […]

I hope you’ll excuse me for not delving into the finer details of Minnesota’s latest blown lead and missed buzzer beater. If you saw last season’s Michigan game, or this year’s games against Michigan State or at Indiana and Northwestern you know how the story goes. This team is as formulaic as any of the […]

Golden Gophers vs. Penn State Nittany Lions 1:00 pm (CST) at Bryce Jordan Center (University Park, PA) Radio: WCCO 830 AM TV: Big Ten Network For the better part of a month, I’ve been claiming each upcoming game was not a must win. Those games were important, and every conference game ultimately will have some […]

The Gophers move to 3-1 in the Big Ten with an excellent performance against Ohio State who was finally at full strength. There will be a more in-depth review after I re-watch the game and overcome my post exciting game amnesia. Blake Hoffarber has finally, definitively, shut up his critics. After every great game he […]

Golden Gophers vs. Purdue Boilermakers 6:00 pm (CST) at Mackey Arena (West Lafayette Indiana) Radio: WCCO 830 AM TV: ESPN College basketball is the most forgiving of all sports. There is not a set number of teams in each conference that advance to the NCAA tournament. One bad game won’t spoil a season. The season […]

The Gophers now know who they are and where they are, and now they can learn and grow. This weekend’s 76 Classic didn’t turn out the way most people thought or hoped, especially after the win against Butler that is growing less impressive by the day (Butler barely beat UCLA and lost a nail-biter to […]

It was awkward, disjointed, often sloppy, but it was a win. In a game that featured more whistles than an Andrew Bird and Bobby Mcferrin duet, the Gophers beat the Butler Bulldogs by a score of 82-73. This was Minnesota’s second non-conference top ten win in the last two seasons, and this win over Butler […]

North Dakota State is NCAA bound Yes, they are incredibly annoying, but at least it helps the Gophers’ non-conference profile. Gophers doing all right so far in poor economy Now about those ticket prices… 2009 Big Ten Tournament Preview: Minnesota vs. Northwestern Does anyone even give the Gophers a chance? Big Ten Tournament Round 1: […]

As anyone who has participated in a live blog here can tell you, I check my objective blogger persona at the door when the Gophers are in a close game. This is especially the case at The Barn when Wisconsin comes to town. While comparisons to past games and various statistics are still floating around […]
