    Realignment rumors

    Sounds like Texas and Oklahoma will join the SEC as they will let Texas keep the Longhorn network deal ! That would leave Kansas and Iowa St. finding a way into the Big 10 ?

    Realignment rumors

    UVA has a airtight deal and would not leave anyways. President Ryan just spoke to this. No idea on A&M. Just terrible for many fans to see giant conferences where many members will not play each other, even worse than now. Talk about unbalanced schedules. Change is inevitable, it is the only...

    Realignment rumors

    Mine as well but none of them are leaving. Check the buyouts for UVA and AM. Plus ND gets to keep their own deal in the ACC.

    Many of the 32 have eliminated the Gophers. Guys like Traudt are long gone. Several have used 5 visits without coming here.

    This isn't going as planned

    Miserable on offense and defense in conference leads to terrible conference records and being let go.

    All Things Gophers Basketball Class of 2022 Recruiting Thread

    Worry whenever and as much as you want. Some of the best programs have only 3 offers out. Ben will have his 1st 2022 soon enough.

    This isn't going as planned

    I do not think Ben will make excuses.All teams have injuries, the best coaches feel for the player but do not bring up injuries as excuses. Colleges and communities each have problems, coaches work to over come them, not making excuses. The worst ones say they are not making excuses and then in...

    This isn't going as planned

    Things in coaching, especially recruiting rarely go as planned. The best coaches i know miss out on nearly all their first targets but move on with quality that still fits. There has been some chatter about not being able to build a culture with guys that will be mostly here one year. It goes...

    ESPN: The biggest challenge for every new coach in men's college basketball (Johnson, MN: Lock up in-state prospects.)

    Of course we had great games, i was at most of them. There were just not that many and very few that were on the road and one tourney victory. One good defensive season in 8 years.

    ESPN: The biggest challenge for every new coach in men's college basketball (Johnson, MN: Lock up in-state prospects.)

    Less enthusiasm for the program, way different community from the perspective of many parents and players. Less support.

    ESPN: The biggest challenge for every new coach in men's college basketball (Johnson, MN: Lock up in-state prospects.)

    I think it will be very hard to be .500 plus by year 8 but to be better than .350 is a must and for success i would expect a a yearly top 5 team by year 5 . A team that plays great defense, that has no trash on the team, to lead with character, without excuses. Winning will be a huge part of...

    ESPN: The biggest challenge for every new coach in men's college basketball (Johnson, MN: Lock up in-state prospects.)

    We just have a difference of opinion on what good is. I do not think we were good many years ! I would never cherry pick two home games as the sample size. I do think it was incredibly poor coaching to not build a culture and to average 10th place in defense over 8 years. We will never have...

    Marcus Carr, who has been in the portal since earlier this spring, declares officially for the 2021 NBA Draft

    Great choice. He will really be coached to the hilt, play defense. The practices will be the toughest he has ever had and he will finally have his condition where it needs to be.

    Charlie Daniels Committed

    Johnson faces significant challenges others do not. It is not a college town and it is in a city viewed by many to be a really bad place for the last 24 months. We need to give him time. The program took the first step and got rid of a coach with a horrible record. We can not know if we hired...
