    Little Ricky needs to change his approach. He will probably get zero players from the university home state with the best class in the history of the state. Pitiful.
    These takes are my favorite. Give me a class of Berry, Muscadin, and Sibley over Crowl, Carlson, and Madsen. Move on

    Don't look up, abrams...the sky will fall right on top of your head.

    The days of provincial recruiting have long since died with family and friends being able to watch virtually every game on TV regardless of where their kid goes to school. I'm as disappointed as anyone when we miss out on the highly rated local kids but the ultimate dream of playing for the home school the way we did as youngsters just doesn't seem to carry weight anymore which is sad. Just imagine what will happen when HS kids can go straight to the NBA in 2022 and the Top 15-20 recruits aren't available for the Duke's and Kentucky's of the world. Those programs will have to reach deeper into the cookie jar to land the best remaining talent and that will probably further diminish the overall quality of recruits for programs like Minnesota. Right now, the elite programs are dining on Crème Milanos while the rest of us get Oreos. In 2022, Duke, UNC and Kentucky will be taking our Oreos and leaving us with Fig Newtons.

    I would prefer that class as well. As much as I bash Pitino those are not misses. Suggs, Garcia, and Walton are the difference makers.

    So we should all get upset with Pitino because a guy who it seems nobody wanted here(Crowl) and a guy who we never were really in the running for(Carlson) signed elsewhere? There's plenty out there besides those 2. What because those 2 guys signed at Wisconsin we have all of a sudden failed in the fall period. Last time i checked there are more guys out there that were after, and definately have a better shot at than Crowl and Carlson. This morning we were all excited that it might look like we will get Ty Berry, but now since Carlson is going to Wisconsin we should just give up on all these guys. Who out there actually thought we were getting Carlson? Again, Garcia, Walton, and a bunch of other guys out there that actually play basketball in those other 49 states are still on our radar. Keep the faith! Hopefully in next couple of days we get good news!

    Do you keyboard warriors who type little Ricky chuckle at yourselves when you write that?

    It seems to have been the opinion that Carlson was likely not ever going to commit to the Gophers for his own reasons which is completely understandable. So is everyone upset that he didn't commit to the gophers who were never really a serious contender, or is it because he committed to Wisconsin? Nice player we would have loved to have but never seemed serious about committing here.

    Some of you blind homers make me laugh. Oturu was the last guy we beat out blue bloods for. . . . .have you see the offer list for Muscadin? Do you honestly think we have a shot at him? If we get him great. I hope I'm wrong but I doubt it.

    Garcia and Walton are going to NC or Kansas or Arizona or some other elite program with a winning tradition. Minnesota has been a bottom 1/3 team in the big ten for decades. Decades. Little richards need to focus his efforts on guys we can actually get and hope for a diamond in the ruff like Gabe. Berry is probably going to Oklahoma State.

    For you homers here is the gopher recent record:

    I'm upset because we've finished behind the Badgers in the conference standings 21 straight years, and recruiting is part of that.

    I just think you have to up your $$$ offer and you will get them. Maybe hire some dads or their high school coaches as assistants? How about getting them a degree for not going to class? Maybe a guaranteed job that pays good money after they graduate?

    I mean lets be real here, that is the only way we get these types of guys. These other schools offer a winning tradition, money, and a degree for doing nothing. We offer a scholarship. We are behind the 8-ball right from the start.

    That said, we should be able to beat out schools like Wisconsin for kids from time to time. They don't have as many boosters paying the big bucks and the rest blue blood nation does.

    I understand where your at, but does crowl and carlson assure wisconsin of finishing ahead of us next 4 years?

    I hope we get Berry, sounds promising. A class of Berry, Garcia and Walton would be amazing. He has had several unofficial visits to OSU already.
