    Whalen is already like a coach to her Lynx teammates. So, I think the transition into a college head coach wouldn't be as bad. The part that she will have to learn is the administrative side of the biz.
    This is the kind of inside info I appreciate when I log onto Gopherhole!

    LOL, I know you're being serious and can back it with data. But, he wasn't making the statement to be factual. He was doing it to point out how helpful Whalen could be.
    That being said, you make me smile when you stick to the facts. Don't ever change. ☺

    That video didn’t sound encouraging to me.

    I found it very encouraging and I know Paige well. She has gone from absolutely zero interest to conversations with the coaches and arranging a visit. That’s a huge step forward.

    I was also encouraged by what I heard. I don't think the Gophers had much of a shot with Stollings as the coach and I get the feeling we'll now have a chance to be in the mix with Whalen as the coach. Maybe I've been drinking too much of the Kool-Aid, but I'm of the feeling that Whalen can get the Gopher program to be a prominent BIG and national program, much like Staley has done with South Carolina. And the signing of Bueckers could put this program on that track. Bueckers handled herself well in that interview.

    “Whoever goes there or wherever I land, I think she’ll do a great job in Minnesota.”

    That’s just being polite. Obviously “whoever goes there” isn’t her or “wherever I land” isn’t going to be Minnesota. If she was leaning towards Minnesota, it’d be more transparent by now. I do hope I’m wrong though since I’ve been holding onto this “pipe dream” longer than most.

    If Paige was just trying to be polite or politically correct and not disappoint Minnesotans she would have said such things when Stollings was there, perhaps even gone for a visit, but she didn't. Stollings had absolutely no chance of signing her and that was clear to everyone around her. The fact that Paige has had conversations with Whalen already and scheduled a visit is a huge step forward. Paige has gone to great lengths over the last couple of years not to tip her hat in one direction or another but it is obvious from talking with her and her family that she is interested enough now to look seriously at Minnesota as an option.

    Maybe it’s seen as a “huge step forward” when it’s actually just a more appropriate time for such activity.

    She was never going to consider the U under Stollings. Now she has scheduled a visit and is interested. That’s a huge step forward in my view. Not sure that timing has anything to do with it. It’s because it’s Whalen that it’s happening.

    Here’s expanded audio on that latest Bueckers video interview with Darren Wolfson. I was hoping he would give an opinion on his own interview but he didn’t. The Bueckers part of this podcast starts at 5:30
