Even with one of the sparsest crowds of the season, the Gophers had several notable moments in their 75-59 victory over South Dakota State. With both Andre and Austin Hollins on the verge of eclipsing 1,000 points for their careers and Rick Pitino in the stands donning Minnesota colors, the Gophers outmuscled a Nate Wolters-less […]

Life after Nate Wolters has not been easy for South Dakota. This was completely expected. The Jackrabbits had only been a Division I program for 5 years when Wolters jointed the team, barely a Division I recruit himself. By the end of his college career, Wolters was headed to the NBA, and the Jackrabbits were an NCAA tournament team. Players like Wolters don’t come around often, and he might prove to be irreplaceable.

Hey, the first (and likely only) Kendal Shell headline that will ever occur! It wasn’t the highlight of the game, but in a relatively boring, Wolters-less victory over the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, Mr. End-of-the-Bench scored a career high four points in garbage time as the Gophers destroyed SDSU 88-64 and continued to outpace their […]

And now, the target is firmly affixed to the Golden Gophers back. When the top 25 poll results were announced this afternoon, the Gophers were ranked #14 by the AP and #21 by the coaches. Any talk of being a sleeper team or underrated or under the radar evaporated immediately. Now the hard work of justifying and keeping the ranking begins.

It wasn’t the prettiest of victories, especially considering the opponent, but when the scoreboard read 0:00 one of the only things that mattered was the Gophers sitting with a higher score than their opponent. It was an uneasy, squeamish first half for the Gophers, who couldn’t seem to find their shots, much less the […]

The Golden Gophers play their second game of the season against their not exactly rivals from South Dakota State University. It has been several years since the Gophers started playing the state schools that hug the western border of Minnesota, and the novelty has worn off. Playing regional low-majors is a phenomenon that will never […]

An exercise in futility can best be described as predicting the future based on incomplete information about 18-22 year olds, who of course always act rationally, make wise decisions, and perform to expectations. Feel free to leave your picks in the comments if you so desire, so five months from now I can at the […]

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, […]

Wednesday night’s Gopher win over the South Dakota State Jackrabbits was dreadful for everyone, and somehow more dreadful than last season’s “victory” over the Jackrabbits. The Gophers were looking back on a string of impressive wins, or looking ahead to finals, Louisville, Christmas break, and maybe summer vacation. Clearly, neither team wanted to be there, […]

I had originally hoped to include several Watership Down references in this column. This novel of course tells the story of a dystopian rabbit society overcome by infighting and a totalitarian government. Note to all those with children or thinking of having children, even though rabbits are cute and the movie version of this is […]

At one point in time, and maybe still, South Dakota State needed to worry about more than just beating their instate rivals Augustana and the University of South Dakota. They also had worry about dodging dead jackrabbits that were hurled on to the court. It seems that with miles of open road, an out of […]
