    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    Perfect quote at the end of that by Sparnakel (I think??) - "he wears his heart on his sleeve." That sums Pearl up quite nicely. Think whatever you want about him as a character, but he's an elite basketball coach. Also, how underrated is Ian Eagle? It amazes me how his name doesn't come up...

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    I fully acknowledge that there's a bit of a sleazy car salesmany vibe with Pearl, and I'm well aware of his past transgressions. I just like the way his teams play and think he's a hell of a coach and while I don't necessarily think coaches need to be as demonstrative to illustrate their...

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    Iowa State is only like 30 minutes further from Austin than the Twin Cities. Think getting a waiver there would be possible as well. Creighton is like five hours away. Auburn and Maryland make no sense if immediate eligibility is what he's after - though I'm a big Bruce Pearl (the coach) fan and...

    All Things Treyton Thompson Recruiting Thread (Class of 2021) UPDATE 6/15: MN Offers

    He's an elite level clapper as well. Kids gotta have ridiculously strong hands because when he claps (which is A LOT), you hear it.

    All Things Treyton Thompson Recruiting Thread (Class of 2021) UPDATE 6/15: MN Offers

    If playing together has any sort of positive impact on potentially getting Tre Holloman, I'd be in favor of that. Think Holloman is going to be a terrific player.

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    If the officiating had been a little better, Wisconsin would've won a title five years ago. Ifs, ands and buts are worth very little. Wisconsin is very good and after we whooped em at home, they went on a tear. We didn't. I don't know about a high pedastal, but I'd consider them in the mix of...

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    I hope Gabe shoots it better - if he's not shooting well, he's giving you nothing on the offensive end of the floor. Would like to see development in that area (getting to the paint, getting to the FT line, making plays) but I don't really see him ever being much more than a 3-and-D guy (which...

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    By that match, two guys making 5 percent more of their 3-pointers, the team scores 60 more points. How many more wins would the Gophers have had last year with 60 more points?

    STrib: What if the Gophers played North Dakota State?

    Have lived in Fargo essentially since they started winning titles. Gameday Saturday afternoons are my favorite because I can get errands done and enjoy the gym while the rest of the town oogles and oggles over their beloved Bizon. In all seriousness, I simultaneously think NDSU would struggle...

    Cheryl Reeve, Richard Pitino and Derek Falvey discuss George Floyd death in Minneapolis during Star Tribune Live Town Hall

    Love the notion of spreading love and 'we're all in this together' and kumbaya and all that jazz, but the reality is that people see things differently on every fundamental level and don't handle disagreement well.

    Transfer list possibilities, Spring 2020

    Gach shot a solid percentage in his freshman season (low volume) and shot well for a good chunk of his sophomore season. Realistically, I think if he were to be playing here, you could expect him to shoot 33-37 percent from the 3-point line. He's a decent shooter - not a sniper - but I tend to...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    Tschetter might not dominate by posting up way smaller guys, but his game starts with his activity level and force on the glass - which is a lot easier when the guys you are going against are underclassmen or undersized. There's no way around that. The competition jump for him is larger than a...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    I generally agree with this. If Tschetter was from anywhere else, nobody would be up in arms over his lack of recruitment. But because our beloved home state only has a handful of high-major prospects in 2021 with one already secured and one firmly in the 'pipe dream' category, the quota on...

    All Things Will Tschetter Recruitment Thread

    Ok so in this hypothetical we have eight (8/13) scholarships devoted to guys who play the 4 or 5. Assuming no transfers out, Curry gone and Carr gone. Mashburn Kalscheur, Mutaf Williams Holmgren, Ihnen, Mitchell, Tschetter, Omersa Robbins, Thompson, Freeman That perimeter is terrible - in a...

    All Things Will Tschetter Recruitment Thread

    He's hung around this long. Barring another major injury, it doesn't seem like Curry is planning on giving up. And as we've seen, Pitino doesn't seem to be the type to run guys off the program. But yeah, maybe he decides not to stick around. Maybe Freeman leaves as well. In that scenario, take...

    All Things Will Tschetter Recruitment Thread

    In a hypothetical world where Tschetter dreams of playing for the hometown team and they secure his commitment, the team would head into 2021 (before transfers which would seem likely) with more than half its scholarships being taken up by big guys. Assuming Carr leaves early and nobody...

    Regis decommits. Anyone know why?

    This back and forth on morals and ethics has been quite entertaining. I'm very unclear though, on how the opinion that when someone backs out of a commitment (no matter how allowed said someone is to do it and how little a verbal commitment may mean in the first place), it reflects poorly on...

    Colin Cowherd gushes over Minnesota, Fleck: "You better not let him go because that guy is winning nine games at Minnesota or 10 games." (video)

    Cowherd fires off so many bad takes, he's bound to spew a decent one every so often. Perhaps this turns out to be the one.

    ESPN: Memphis' Penny Hardaway calls recruiting impact of G League 'huge'

    I know we are supposed to love when the millionaire coaches have a harder time doing their jobs and I'm on board with getting the guys who are more about their brand or with clearly no interest in college basketball out of college basketball, but I can see where this is going to be incredibly...

    David Mutaf commits!

    I know nothing about this player beyond a few breakdowns and video cut ups. I'm hopeful that he'll be good. But my expectations are that he'll be a depth player who provides very little in year one.
