    Default ***OFFICIAL PURDUE AT MINNESOTA SENIOR NIGHT TOURNEY BID IN-GAME THREAD!!!!***

    WOW WOW WOW, this is a big game!!! We say goodbye to one of the Greatest Gophers of all time tonight in Murphy, we say goodbye to Dupree and his family who have been through so much this season, we say goodbye to Jarvis Johnson and his family and acknowledge his amazing attitude in spite of tough circumstances and we say goodbye to Stull and Stockman who made pit-stops along their collegiate career. Oh, and we host 11th ranked Purdue. Oh and a Tournament bid is more or less on the line.

    The Barn better be rocking as this could be a night to remember.

    GET 'ER DONE PITINO AND GET 'ER DONE SENIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Senior nights are always tough. Watching home careers end. We’ve seen a couple of these guys play nearly every home game for 4 years. There is always something special on senior night. It is possibly the final time we see Murphy’s hair and Dupree’s swagger on the raised floor.

    Murphy needs to come out under control and avoid foul trouble. We need Mr. Double Double, Mr. All-Conference to be just that. We need Dupree to step up and hit some shots. And to disrupt the Purdue offensive flow.

    We need to win. We need to send these seniors off on a positive note. We need to make the NCAA tourney. We need to make The Barn rock one more time this year.

    Good bettors don’t bet with their heart. I’m a lousy bettor. Gophers win tonight.

    It's a shame that the U can't figure out how to honor the seniors closer to tip-off, almost every other senior night that I've seen is able to do it. They will be lucky if there are 3,000 fans there at 6:30. Murphy deserves better.

    Go Gophers!!

    Indiana has their senior night recognition AFTER the game. It's a tradition and most fans stay for it. I think that would be a better option, rather than the players being distracted pre-game.

    Go Gophers!

    Would love to see Matz get some minutes against Harms as I believe he can be effective against him because rarely does Harms match up with another 7-footer. Plus this saves fouls on Murph, Curry and Oturo against Purdue's other big.

    Sounds about right to me, who knows maybe this will start off with a bang. Big game, hope they play hard, loose, and with confidence.

    The days of starting seniors on senior night seem to be a thing of the past. Pitino is fighting for his job, he should start the 5 that gives us the best chance for a good start to the game.

    Go Gophers!!

    Plus the Boilers have the juice to blow us out before the first time-out. Not a chance there is a sentimental starting line-up.

    Yep, they are fighting for their lives. Start the best 5 and expect them to play big minutes. They need this game, pull out all the stops.

    Agreed. If it were a 8:00 game it would be fine. We'll be scrambling to get there by then.

    The seniors will all get a chance to speak to the crowd after the game. At least they have the past few seasons. This is their parents/loved ones, a plaque/jersey/whatever. I'll be there to cheer for them!
