    Thank you for clarifying old wise one

    Get a life. Seriously. Your entire existence is coming on here after Gopher losses. That's it.

    Go see a movie. Try talking to a real human. Read a book. Learn to cook. Travel somewhere. Take up painting.

    So much out there. But you're just focused on being the worst person on a message board. You're killing it at that, but selling yourself way short

    That's in the eye of the beholder. I say there's significant competition for that spot.

    Back on topic.

    Much improved FT shooting.

    I agree.

    best case....
    Grad transfer PF who can shoot the 3 and battle with Curry for the starting PF spot
    Grad transfer C who can back up Oturu

    SF freshman
    this would allow us to have 4 open scholarships for the 2020 class

    ok with
    Grad transfer PF/C type to add to the mix
    Skogman/Ihnen freshman PF either of whom seem to be the stretch 4 type
    SF Freshman
    this would still give us 3 open spots for the 2020 class.
    I can't remember the last time the Gophers got a grad transfer big man that was good enough to play, I wouldn't count on it.

    Another positive. Nobody got injured from Davison's cheap shots. That alone should be enough to take away the sting.

    Another positive. IW is starting to come into his own and give good minutes. I would have ZERO problem putting him in the starting lineup and having McBrayer sit. He just is not the same player this year. If that has to
    do with his mom or not, who knows. But he isn't doing much good for us out there right now.

    I know the thread is supposed to about positives. Just wanted to offer this thought -

    the perspective for next year's team also hinges to some extent on Curry. I think I expected him to be further along in his recovery. I'm starting to think that his injury was far more extensive than I realized, and he has a much longer road back than I expected.

    As far as next year - IF Curry plays like he did his FR season, then there is more reason for optimism. IF Curry plays like he has this year, it changes the equation. I think he can still be a productive role player, but if he doesn't show more improvement, I'm not sure you can count on him to be a cornerstone of the team going forward.

    The 'ol Gopher luck just keeps going.

    People have curry’s Freshman season very overrated in the minds.
    His stat line is pretty similar to his freshman season with the exception of 2-3 breakout games. If he has 2-3 big games in the last 8, his stats will be better than they were his freshman year.
