    Just watched much of the Maryland-Rutgers game. Maryland is going to be a very tough win, even at home. They have two bigs (Fernando and Smith) that are athletic and can shoot. It will be tough for Murphy inside against them. Then, they have a PG (Cowan) that can get to the hoop and also shoot. I was really impressed with them. The TV guys conjectured that Maryland could be ranked come Monday. Maryland > Wisconsin. Would be another great win if we can pull it off.

    I totally agree! But it still ain't gonna be easy to accomplish. We need the next one on Tuesday...one at a time.

    Yes, thanks for project/post SelectionSunday!

    Will be a tough game, no doubt. Hopefully team continues to improve with Curry's presence. He definitely made them better against UW. Will be interesting to see if IW plays.

    Every game will be tough. Even Rutgers was a lot better last year I thought, but if we can’t beat Illinois it means we aren’t very good either

    Sports are about matchups. I don’t view Illinois as a gimme’ at all, especially on the road. They like to pressure, right? With our guard situation, I could see Gophers struggling a lot vs. defensive pressure.

    Unlike the Wisconsin game, that’s probably one we’d need Jelly to give us a lot, and turnover-free, minutes.

    Feels like an "Amir needs to show up and be assertive" game. That'll pretty much be a theme for most games moving forward.

    With tonight's disappointing loss to Maryland, the Gophers are now 3-1 in Hodger's "Likely Favored But Not A Gimme' -- no worse than 6-3" category.

    Go Gophers!!

    Well, last night sucked. Need to deliver on these next three before we score a major upset and win at Michigan!

    Next 3.

    Rutgers
    @ Illinois
    Penn State

    If Gophers desire a NCAA bid, need these 3. Avoid "bad loss".
