    Gophers likely to pull out of Hall of Fame Tip-Off

    That's too bad, I always enjoy the chance to win a title. Winning the San Juan Shootout under Tubby was great and Gabe's buzzer beater won the Vancouver Showcase a couple years ago. I don't think we won the tournament, but Andre Hollins looked like the next Gopher star dropping 40 something in...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    We've added a practice facility and had more opportunities to land local kids (could get 2 of the top 4 in the state a number of years recently and have everyone excited when that was more of rarity a decade ago). We've also seen a very noticeable downtick in out of state recruiting over the...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    I actually think he had enough talent to win last year and underachieved. Now I think the overall talent level of the conference (and college basketball in general) was down last year but Oturu and Carr were the two best players on the floor against Wisconsin and certainly 2 of the best 15 guys...

    Greder: The U needs development from kicker Michael Lantz, new returner(s) and Australian punter Mark Crawford in 2020.

    It was really amazing that the Gophers could finish 11-2 last year with how poor the special teams were. We lost badly on special teams (and also 3rd/4th and short decisions and execution) yet still were able to win most games decisively which speaks highly of every other aspect of the football...

    The 2020 Gophers season will be a success if?...

    It's interesting how many people defined success similarly to way I would for this year. Success to me this year is adding at least two trophies to the case. That means beating 2 out of Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin. I am really disgusted by this programs inexcusable record against Iowa (I...

    All Things 2021 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    It's really disappointing to me that the same points keep being brought up as opinions when research I have done and posted on here has shown the opposite. Pitino has done far worse recruiting the state than anyone going back to at least Clem (and I know some about Clem's recruiting to say it...

    All Things 2020 Minnesota Vikings In-Season Thread

    So many issues with the Vikings. The Kirk Cousins extension was an abomination the minute it was signed. There was simply zero reason to commit to Kirk in that manner. To make matters worse, the cap room they created by signing Kirk was not really used (they ended up keeping Harris on a...

    Official 2021 Gophers Football Recruiting Updates Thread: Links, Tweets, Videos etc

    Great to read that Barber looks good. The lines on both sides of the ball are probably my biggest question marks in regards to sustained success at Minnesota.

    RIP Sid Hartman 😢

    These are great stories/tweets, thanks for sharing them. How great is it that Sid got to see Gopher football get back to relevancy one last time? To see them in the top 5 (albeit briefly) in the country, mentioned in contention for the college football playoff? The University of Minnesota...

    RIP Sid- no message

    Same for me. I know I've shared this several times before, but I used to go the public library and read the Star Tribune. They only received the Sunday papers and we'd go maybe once a month or so and I'd read all 4 Sports sections with Sid's column being my favorite. I was doing that more than...

    Jerry Meyer from 247 chimes in on Chet Holmgren 1. Which undecided five-star's decision is the most important to the schools recruiting him? Who can least afford to miss? Meyer: I'm going with Chet Holmgren and Minnesota. It is quite the opportunity for Minnesota to have 247Sports No. 1...

    Kenny Pohto commits

    So the headline here obviously is no Chet Holmgren for Pitino which means he misses out on Holmgren, Brown (and I'd argue Tschetter now that he's taken Pohto) after missing out on the entire 2020 class. The sub headline is that the roster construction is currently a mess. As of now for 2021...

    Some notes from Gopher Gridiron Radio

    Ryan Burns had a lot of bad news to share on Gopher Gridiron Radio. First of all, Curtis Dunlap has "work to do" before he gets back on the field. The way Ryan talked about this it sounds like it has to with more than just conditioning. Unfortunately Daniel Faalele also has work to do to play...

    Jon Rothstein: Big Ten Preseason Power Rankings (#12. Minnesota)

    The Gophers arguably should have swept Wisconsin last year and absolutey should have split their games with Iowa. Iowa was absolutely atrocious on the road last year: they would have had just one road win in conference play last year if not for the Gophers literally beating themselves..and that...

    Freiermuth leaves Penn State

    I know these are mostly jokes but we can agree that Ciarrocca was a really good coach at Minnesota I hope? Regardless of his use of the TE, I hope Sanford can results that are on par with or exceed those of Ciarrocca. I think it's smart for any player who is locked in as a 1st/2nd round...

    Omersa and Mitchell and Freeman

    I don't have particularly high hopes for any of the trio. Omersa's lack of development last season was extemely disappointing. I was hoping he could build off some encouraging things I saw from him in the MSU game in the NCAA tournament, but it just didn't happen. I think his best role is a...

    Gach, Robbins waiver updates from Marcus

    I feel very similarly. It doesn't seem right that coaches can move on, but kids cannot. That said, it seems like the playing field gets tilted even further with a "free for all" transfer system. If the G League program becomes a success, you could see the majority of the top 10 or 20 recruits...

    Gach, Robbins waiver updates from Marcus

    Landers Nolley got a waiver to play immediately at Memphis and he was a kid most expected would have to sit out a year. Just because I was curious: Memphis is exactly 40 minutes by car closer to his hometown in Georgia than Blacksburg (VTech) so I don't think closer to home was the reason he...

    All Things Chet Holmgren Recruitment Thread (Class of 2021, Gophers Have Offered)

    Isn't that up to the adults to realize that a prospect is stringing them along? Isn't it up to the adults to take advantage of having Chet/whoever attend games and impress them to the point that they change their mind? When the Gophers bring in plan B, C, D guys in for officials when they know...
