Not only does it avoid the things I truly hate about intro videos, like really bad hip-hop, overly dramatic music (drama is fine, but basketball is not storming the Bastille, shots not involving basketball (remember the weight-lifting cut-in last year), and too much dramatic posing, it includes good things too! The archival footage is great. Bobby Jackson is in an intro-video. When did we think that would happen? The video builds throughout, and the final scene of the Barn Storming is the perfect way to get fans fired up for a game.

Well, that wasn’t how we wanted the Gophers to play, was it? With a slightly better defensive performance and a shaky at best offensive game, the Golden Gophers hung on to beat the Big Red 71-66. It is easy to panic, get discouraged, or become confused about where this team has been and where it […]

Enjoy this exclusive interview with future Golden Gopher point guard Andre Hollins, filmed right after he scored a career high 46 points on Findlay Prep, one of the best high school basketball teams in the country. Special thanks for the video to the fine folks at Memphis Roar, by far the best source for anything basketball […]

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to being a bit nervous throughout most of the first half of the Gophers 82-42 win over the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks. Over the weekend Iowa lost to Southland Conference also-ran UT-San Antonio, and for a while at least it appeared that the Lumberjacks had an upset on […]

I know I haven’t provided my usual nerdy recap of Tubby’s Tip-off. There was a nice weather emergency this weekend. The sun was actually out, and I wasn’t about to waste the last opportunity to clean out the garage. You’ll get your recap, I promise. In lieu of the recap, more videos of the fun […]

At least during the dunk contest. We’ll be back later today with a more in-depth breakdown of last night, but until then, wow…

Royce White grew up. His basketball skills were never in doubt. Since his Freshman year at De LaSalle he has been on recruiting lists a mile long and heralded as the next great basketball player to come out of Minnesota. All that attention, hype, and praise can go to a young man’s head, and it […]

On Kare 11 News last night, eternal creator of mixed feelings (funny, annoying, rage inducing?) Eric Perkins featured what could only be described as the perfect Christmas present. If anyone out there has wood-working skills, has 400 spare hours, and wants to send this over: a table-top basketball game that is a near-perfect replica of Williams […]

And the dance will be Texas two-step. Despite one of the tougher draws of the entire field (Texas and then Duke, ouch) it is absolutely thrilling to be back in the NCAA Tournament. Needless to say from the video of their reaction (expand to full-screen if it doesn’t work) the players are excited. Congratulations!
