    Default The Athletic: State of the Hoops Program: Minnesota starts over with a new nucleus

    per Dustin:

    Richard Pitino entered the 2018-19 season like a poker player down to his last chips. He needed to win just to keep playing.

    The 37-year-old son of the exiled Hall of Famer had won an NIT in his first year at Minnesota in 2013-14 but had been to just one NCAA Tournament before last season, taking a first-round exit in 2017. The 2017-18 season was a disaster thanks to injuries and other personnel issues, as the Gophers started the season ranked in the top 15 but lost 14 of their last 16 games to finish 15-17 and out of the postseason. That put Pitino squarely on the hot seat.

    But Pitino had good enough cards to play with size across the board and forward Jordan Murphy returning. The Golden Gophers won just enough for Pitino to play on, earning a No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament with a seventh-place Big Ten finish, a 21-13 record on Selection Sunday and knocking off Louisville to claim Minnesota’s first NCAA win since 2013 and its second since the vacated Final...

    Would you feel the same way if somebody was stealing your hard work, efforts and fruits of your talent and giving it away for free? If so, please let me know what it is you do well enough to get paid for, come to my place and do that work for me for free. I'll be sure to say Thanks.

    He didn't copy and paste article he just posted the link, and quite frankly they give you a free trial anyways.

    I don't know what's wrong with you two. He barely copies and pastes, so he's actually doing these sites and authors a favor. Ignore these weirdos, Bleed. 99% of us are very grateful for your posts.

    Why ? He is promoting the Athletic for free. FYI , the athletic is the best of what is out there. Not saying much but they have a collection of talented not available anywhere else for sports fans.

    Get over yourself. The two paragraphs Bleed pasted make up the lede the Athletic put out there to lure people in. Go on, click the link and you’ll see.

    Oturu and Kalscheur are some nice players that should be around for awhile. Curry is cool if he's healthy. Outside of that, this season is going to be all about finding out what the nucleus can be. Hopefully Carr shows he can be. Jarvis seems pretty athletically gifted, but still seems to have a long way to go as a player. Maybe with a pretty thin roster, he will be thrust in to action, and could surprise us?

    Oturu and Kalscheur. I would say those are the only two we can pencil in to rely on, outside of injury.

    So what's the big deal? You can only read the first two paragraphs.

    Thanks again Bleed!

    So basically youre disregarding what Pitino has been saying about Carr and Willis for the past year?

    You just don’t get it.

    Bleed has done a great job of posting links to Gophers “news” for years. He is like a Gopher Sports news accumulator and does the leg work to keep all of us updated. He never posts info that isn’t available to the public. As others have stated, the part he posted is exactly what anyone can read on the link. It is the teaser opening of the article and not all of the content.

    In general, you have a valid point, but not in this case.
