    Yeah, I thought he redshirted his freshman year

    I want to know how Pitino plans to replace Jordan Murphy... Oturu looks like a solid starting Center, but we do have a hole at PF, as Omersa is really raw and likely not a quality starter in this league... Obviously, the wild card is Eric Curry, but Curry seems capable of playing the 5 position as well as the 4. Curry definitely has the range to play PF... Regardless, I would think the biggest hole on the roster is PF...

    Do we have any sights on a PF for the 2019 class?
    Center is also thin. We need someone to replace Stockman. So, both C and PF need attention. We might see a grad transfer at either or both positions.

Just because Murphy was an 3* undersized hustle player doesn't mean all of them can be transformed in Jordan Murphy. He will be the #1 rebounder and #2 or 3 scorer in team history. But yeah, lets just get any 3 star to replace him, I'm sure that'll be good.
    You can't reason with a troll.

    I’m not a troll. I just don’t think Murphy is replaceable at this point. Even a guy like Hurt who is outstanding likely wouldn’t provide the production Murphy has as a junior and senior. The replacement for him needed to be on the roster before 2019-2020, in my trollpinion

    You realize Murphy is one of the best forwards in the country and one of best all time greats in Gopher history right? The likelihood you find another forward to replace his production are slim to none and isn't a realistic expectation. They need to find someone who can man the position at an average or above average level and at the same time hope to improve at the other positions to make up for the loss of Murphy by having the young guys on the team now improve and take over the leadership role which doesn't need to be at the PF position. Take Wisconsin for example, they aren't going to be able to find someone to replace Happ's talent, that is a very special talent. They will likely be a team more centered around their guards with Davison and Trice.

    You’re making the point I made earlier. Thanks for agreeing with me. The team will change. Doesn’t mean its a bad thing. I don’t believe Omersa is ready to start next year. Curry can play the 4. Curious to see what recruits/transfers come in

    I'm not calling you a troll. I am saying you can't reason with Winnasota(who is the troll) sorry for not making that more clear. I agree with you, it is absolutely idiotic to act like Murphy can be replaced by a player who just "hustles". Murphy will be criminally overlooked by many because the program has had little sucess while he was here.

    I never said Murphy could be replaced by a kid that hustles. Someone stated players like Murphy don’t come to Minnesota, which is a stupid comment.

    But I’m a troll.

    Pitino not being able to recruit a PF or C so far to replace Murphy and stockman has me worried. The 2019 recruiting class has to fill some holes

    yup. other than doing whatever he can with Hurt. He needs to go all out on a PF/C type player. Man it would have been so nice to hold onto Tray Jackson.

    I hope they are able to land a Juco PF or C for next season. They will have to replace Matts and Murphy. Curry could start at the 4 next year and Oturu at the 5 so they will be fine, they need depth bad however. Pipe-dream hurt would start at the 4 next year if he comes. Either way they need a 4/5 this off-season probably 2.
