Thread: Final 7 Games

  1. #1

    Default Final 7 Games

    @Nebraska
    Indiana
    Michigan
    @Northwestern
    @Rutgers
    Purdue
    @Maryland

    We need 4 of these. Other than today, we've been playing hard and in every game since the Illinois debacle. I think we will be dialed back in on Wednesday. But really, asking us to beat a couple lower teams on the road and take down one of the best teams at home is not asking that much for a team with our experience and talent. It's not. Question is, will the vets show up down the stretch?

    If they don't and we don't make the tourney, I'm 100% okay with a change at the top.

    I can see anywhere from 1-6 to 5-2. However, the former feels more likely.

    I only see us winning two of these games: Indiana & Rutgers.

    Nebraska is a trap game. Neb needs a win and we are just the team to give it to them.

    We never win at Nebraska - our offense is atrocious (people have figured out Coffey and Murphy)

    We were playing good ball against the top teams before this gnarly 2-game offensive funk. Even with nothing going on offense, we still battled Sconny to one possession near the end. So I guess I'm banking on us pulling our heads out of our asses as far as shooting.

    Regardless, after Nebraska loses at Purdue today, that will be 7 in a row. Their confidence can't be high. We'll see how much Tim can get out of them.

    Gophers have lost 3 in a row. Same could be said about them Pitino.

    I donít see this team as mentally or physically tough enough to win 2 out of the 4 road games no matter who they play.

    Also donít see them sweeping the 3 home games. Unless something drastically changes the Gophers at this point look headed to the NIT.

    This week is definitely make or break. We can see what Pitino is made of as a coach and a motivator.

    They showed a lot of grit at Wisconsin, at Michigan and against Iowa at home.

    I am going with four wins. We pull it together and win four or five

    This team won't get in the NCAA tournament with 3 more wins because the team simply won't be rated highly enough. How much do you think beating Nebraska, Northwestern, and Indiana or Rutgers is going to move the needle if we lose the other 4 games (with three of them possibly being by double digits)?

    As Selection Sunday has noted- it depends on who you beat. If they beat Purdue and Michigan then 1 more might do it. Otherwise, because they have been routed three times now, we need to be 10-10 or better. The team is in a funk. We'll see how they respond.

    Agreed. I think the only way 3 more wins is good enough is if Michigan, Purdue or Maryland is one of them. Which means multiple potentially bad losses to Nebraska, IU, Rutgers or NW.

    Why do you think beating the most reeling team in the conference is going to be some kind of test of the Gophers' mettle? I could easily see the team beating Nebraska, Northwestern, and maybe pulling out one more. I don't see why that performance over the last seven games should impress anyone.
