    Exactly! This has been and continues to be a sleeping giant.

    If they only win 3 they probably need at least 2 wins in the B1G Tourney.

    Either way I donít see it happening.

    9 wins pre-BTT should put them on the bubble, but the devil is in the details, especially the way NET computes their thing. Win one more than that total - including in the BTT - and there'll be a lot less drama in this.

    At the end of the day, they can't play as bad as they played today. That was discouraging and embarrassing. Nebraska will kill us and pick our carcass clean if we go into Lincoln with this kind of effort.

    Itís misleading though. Putting it that way implies that we only dropped out of the rankings after the injuries/suspension.

    We were unranked when Lynchís suspension came about.

    Fair enough- not intended but fair comment. Once again, I will say that it is almost certain that the team knew about a month prior to Lynch's suspension that there was an investigation and I have to believe that it affected them considering they already were short Curry. I have no idea what we were ranked, if we were, when Lynch played his last game but I know that we were 13-3. Not bad.

    +1. I suppose it's possible that the team learned of Lynch's situation around the same time, but what happened in the 5-on-3 in the Alabama game really seemed to effect them. They did not play well after that, even though they beat the cupcakes they were supposed to. We weren't ranked when Lynch went out and we weren't headed for a top 3 finish or anything.

    To be honest I don’t see the Gophers winning another game this year in the Big Ten. I hope I am wrong but after watching today’s beat down not sure who it would be. But then I had to go shopping (someone had to drive) so I am in a fowl mood.

    Hire Robb Smith and then fire Robb Smith. It's the only solution I see in all this. (Apologies if it has already been suggested.)

    Just beat Nebraska. They certainly are capable of it.

    I see them winning several more. Just beat Nebraska.

    I, on the the other hand, am in a foul mood.

    I’m hungry for some tainted chicken. I’m in a foul fowl mood.

    I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't win another game. Actually, I'd be mildly surprised if they didn't win two. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't win more than two. Nebraska is having a tougher time than us. Northwestern has one good player and a few fair players. Rutgers is probably close to 50/50 and Indiana is winnable. They have four decent shots left.

    Sleeping giant?

    For the most part the "giants" in the NCAA have already been decided. Duke, Kentucky, etc that have built up their reputation over decades are the "giants" and that will most likely never change. The Gophers will never reach that level.

    We could become a good destination but a "giant"? Just no.

    You really think they haven't?

    Just because you speak it on a message board doesn't mean every player can develop the skills. For all we know Murphy could be taking thousands of shots every day. Maybe Coffey just isn't capable of doing what you think he can do.
