The Gophers basketball hype video is amazing.

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.

Julian Welch is a Gopher

Tubby Smith has found next season’s starting point guard, and is name is Julian Welch. Welch, 6’3” and 200 pounds, joins the Gophers from Yuba Junior College in California, where he averaged over 20 points per game.

While this may concern some, I’m excited to see a player that can competently handle the ball and…

Game 2 Review: A slow start, and then a slaughter

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 their mind. The Gophers started extremely slow because they were moving way too fast. Tubby Smith explained during the post-game show that he had made it a point of emphasis…
