    I didn't say we KNEW anything! --just that our interest was... pathologically intense.

    Point taken, but it might just be the case that this is EXACTLY where you could look for "the most hardcore of fans".

    Cashius McNeilly & Emanuel Miller (Texas A&M) both in the portal

    Thanks for the sleuthing. As a new poster who has watched this board for years, I have two observations: one, no one here (for years!) seems to think Doogie is a reliable source and no one--as far as I have seen--has indicated that they even know who Sean Paul is, let alone how credible he is...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    I am taking the term 'control guard' to mean additional ball handlers who can assist in controlling the ball, bringing it up the court, etc. As opposed to PG, who runs the offense and primarily distributes the ball. Am I right, CoMn? Close, but missing nuances? Or a straight up whiff?

    B1G Way Too Early Power Rankings

    If you can't win B1G games in February, you can't keep your job. Neither Pitino nor Tubby could do it. I liked them both, but you have got to be able to win in February.

    Despite flurry of activity, Gophers men’s basketball roster still has major questions

    There has been speculation about needing to wait until May because of contract issues at A&M--and he is Canadian, which may require additional paperwork from the U. The kids, one of whom is his nephew are thought to be coming, as well, but it seems they will wait for the deal to be announced...

    My "small...selective liberal arts school", also D3, led the nation in technical fouls--true story! Grinnell sounds far more watchable. The full court press sounds 'gritty'!

    Black coaches account for more than half of recent hires in college basketball

    So you know, I wrote that longer post before I read this one by you, BL. My longer post is a response to the whole thread to this point, not to you personally.

    Black coaches account for more than half of recent hires in college basketball

    It is called being deliberately obtuse. Do I need to say that history did not begin yesterday? Today does not represent the perfect distribution of talent--by race, or any other demographic category--across the leadership positions of our economy. The market (a principle I have seen reflected...

    Hey! Look at who is back in the transfer portal and who else just entered it

    The more I see of this kid's game, the more I like it. Love the tough, smart defense, the good ball handling and great passing--unselfish. One observation to add to 'eked's' excellent breakdown: he is the guy who sits down in the middle of the zone against Syracuse and executes the offense...

    Black coaches account for more than half of recent hires in college basketball

    That was a deeply confused, highly illogical and truly unfortunate post.

    Hey! Look at who is back in the transfer portal and who else just entered it

    I only saw him play against the Gophers in December and, if I remember, he got into foul trouble and was a non-factor. However, this is cut and pasted from his page on the BC MBB site: AS A JUNIOR (2019-20): Earned spots on the All-ACC and ACC All-Defensive Team Became the first BC player to...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    I have the same count. I think we still want the 2 A&M transfers. If that comes through, we would have 2 remaining. 'manderson' indicated in post #1035 that Brandon Johnson would qualify for the Covid 'extra year'. I believe I've heard that before and I'll take it as true. So, even if we manage...

    Mitchell looks great: ACC All Defense. Not the size we are missing, but an elite defender.

    I urge you to count for yourself. Both CoMn and I laid it out, chapter and verse.
