    After tonight's close win over Penn State, the Gophers are now 8-0 in Hodger's "Should Be Expected to Win -- win 'em all, go 9-0" category.

    Go Gophers!!

    With a little juggling of the outlined path, I can see a way to 21 wins. But, wow! If we make it, it's going to be a struggle.

    Winning Tuesday, is one of the possible crooked paths. Go Gophers!

    Gut-wrenching loss.

    Protect the home court, Gophers. For the most part you’re on track with the path to 21. I’ll go into every home game expecting Gophers to win.

    Beat Iowa.

    Winner of the "Best Thread" Award. Thanks Selection for putting this together.

    Worth noting that last nights win puts us on pace in all four categories. Here's hoping we close out the gimmes on Wednesday.

    21-10 is probably right about where we are going to finish (assuming we win most of our remaining home games and lose most road games). Also will finish right around SS's benchmarks in each category. If we then lose our BTT opener (Day 2), however, I'm not so certain that will result in a "stress free" selection sunday.

    FWIW, our RPI currently is 30. Really stinks they picked this year to change the formula. I don't like the way NET and some of the other formulas use margin of victory/margin of loss.

    I know Selection you have 21 wins as your benchmark for being in without a sweat, but I have a hard time seeing them being left out if they take care of their home court. That would leave them at 20 wins, but includes wins over Purdue, Michigan and a sweep of Wisconsin.
