    Default What will Jordan Murphy be remembered for?

    This is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but we don't have a game to discuss for a few days and I'm not sure I want to continuously relive the shot clock fiasco in Ann Arbor (SCFIAA for short)

    So this is my first poll, I will apologize now for it not working as I don't know how this work.

    Edit: It worked. Cool!

    I voted hair, but in seriousness, obviously the rebounds with a touch of never being able to stay out of foul trouble.

    The rebounds will be the first thing that comes to mind until another player comes along that piles up a lot of double doubles at which point Murphy's numbers in that department will come back out and we will all remember how a double double was basically just a typical day at the office for Murph most of the time.

    1. Rebounds

    I believe Murphy recorded his 57th double double last night. He has played 116 games. That is insane.

    Exactly my thoughts. Kid is the one of the most tenacious rebounders I have seen. It is so unfortunate that he cannot shoot OR that he isn't 6-9. If he was 6-9 he would be darn near unstoppable. At 6-6 it's tough without a jump shot. Great kid.

    As I have said before - if there was ever a stat on getting the rebound off your own shot, I'd think he would have set the NCAA record for that.

    I love Murphy. But last night, as with every game this season, he could have taken uncontested set shots from the elbow on any possession he wanted. Instead, her performed "The Murph" - drive, spin, put the ball right into the long arms of someone four inches taller.

    I'll remember him for his ability to disappear despite that large frame.

    with his whole "look" - the hair, the beard, the smile - I see Murphy as the world's biggest Muppet. If I had any artistic ability, I would make a poster or t-shirt with Murphy as a Muppet - named "Rebound," of course.

    He would fit right in with Fozzie, kermit and the rest of the gang.

    Despite that large frame? He's very undersized for his position. Almost all college players disappear in tons of games. Think about how many they play.

    I appreciate people playing along with this somewhat dumb poll.

    In 10 years, I believe I'll remember Murphy as a guy I loved watching play, even though he had deficiencies. Its been a long time since I questioned his work ethic and motor. What he has done as an undersized and truthfully under skilled player is nothing short of amazing. I doubt I'll see as prolific a rebounder for the Gophers again in my lifetime and I'm not super old (but I am unhealthy)

    Feel for Murphy.

    If there were two players on the team better than him he would be the best third best player on a gopher team in history.

    As it is he is an okay #1/2 with Coffey.

    I think he is much better than OK...
