    Marcus: Hitting on a big-time transfer would put Gophers right in the middle of the pack of BT

    We were 12-10 two thirds of the way through the season after beating Wisconsin, with a decent shot at making the tournament. We then lost several games by slim margins. I think it was the right call to do our best to try to win those games and get to the tournament instead of rolling out the...

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    People dumping on Pitino for his spring recruiting have crossed the line from thoughtful, objective criticism into blind hatred. There’s been a few guys who weren’t great but we’ve also had at least 4 spring recruits earn some sort of all conference honor, and others who were at least regular...

    All Things 2020 College Basketball Coach Hired/Fired Thread

    Evansville beat #1 Kentucky in Lexington in their second game of the season, only to end up going 0-18 in conference and losing the first game of their conference tournament to finish 9-23.

    Oturu doesn’t make first team All-Big Ten

    Tre Jones is entirely irrelevant to this thread though. He doesn’t even play in the Big Ten, and was likely only brought up as a potshot at the program and Pitino.

    Justin Gaard wants MN to keep Pitino

    I got the feeling that those predictions had us in the dregs of the conference, being just slightly less terrible than Northwestern and Nebraska, having no hope of competing with teams like Maryland or Ohio State, and not sniffing Tournament projections at any point over the course of the...

    Fire Pitino

    I’m pretty sure that winning close games is something that very few teams, if any, are able to consistently do in the long run. Winning close games is not a skill, it’s a matter of chance. Sometimes you make the big play, and sometimes your opponent does.

    Without trying to go too far off topic, I think it’s very far from a guarantee Pitino gets fired if we end up on the wrong side of the bubble. Ryan James’ preview of this game I think said Iowa has one win away from home this year, and that they give up an average of 86 points on the road...

    Capacity Williams Arena Crowds - Pitino era

    I think there were a ton of Wisconsin fans in that 2014-15 game because they clinched the Big Ten championship by winning that game. They were exceptionally good that year and we were exceptionally bad, so they were probably pretty confident in getting a win.

    Sid: Local hoops talent

    Marcus Carr would appear to be one of those nine. At 15.7 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 6.7 assists, Carr is putting up more points, rebounds, and assists per game than any guard listed here. You could knock on him for efficiency, as he appears to have a lower eFG% than all of Wright, Terry, and...

    Predictions for last 7 games...

    Kentucky and North Carolina have both accepted NIT invites in the last 15 years on the rare occasions they don’t make the NCAA Tournament. Turning down the CBI I understand, though I remember Purdue accepting a bid around 2012 or so.

    Field of 68: Gophers Sit Roughly 5 Spots Below Bubble Cutline

    Are Ohio State and Michigan still comfortably in because of quality non-conference wins? Purdue up above the bubble after beating Iowa?

    Checking in on Isaiah Washington and Jamir Harris

    Pretty sure we were out of scholarships at the time he committed. From what I remember, he had scheduled an official visit here that was canceled when Jamir Harris committed.

    Gard says Davison's feelings are hurt.

    "No talking shit about the nut puncher until our crowd makes more noise!" Until yesterday, Minnesota had beaten Michigan State more recently than Wisconsin had, but go off. Yes all of those white kids from Minnesota who had offers from Minnesota probably felt they didn't have a place at...

    Miracles never cease, Davison suspended

    Probably mostly forgotten about by now, but, in his first season here, Pitino did suspend Mo Walker for 6 games for “undisclosed violation of team rules,” which I believe ended up being marijuana use.
