    Anybody listening to the Pitino show?

    Point taken. But, of course, the fact that you didn't spell it out entirely does show you knew this is a message board read overwhelmingly by Americans. No?

    Anybody listening to the Pitino show?

    Someone who calls someone else a "c--t," intending it as an insult but thereby objectifying half of all human beings, might not be the best person to put forward the argument that calling someone "gutless" or "pathetic" is inappropriate and may indicate a need for therapy -- though it might well...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021 - Spring Season

    Thanks for clarifying. I thought I missed something about a 6'7" transfer. Yes, Landfair is listed as 6'4".

    Gopher Softball 2020

    This was an interesting take that I hadn't heard before, so I looked up the stats. And at first they didn't seem to support the argument. In 2018 for the Gophers, Lindaman had 155 at bats and 55 walks. In 2019 for Florida, she had 197 at bats and 42 walks -- a difference but not an overwhelming...

    ***OFFICIAL INDIANA AT MINNESOTA IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    Two or three games ago, in a pre-game interview, Pitino said we were a much better shooting team than the stats showed. What does that mean?!

    ***OFFICIAL INDIANA AT MINNESOTA IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    It seems that every year in the Fall, Pitino says something about how we have much better shooters this year.

    Chip: Lindsay Whalen learning the difficulties of trying to build her own culture

    My post was only stating precisely what you state here. I did not suggest anything else. I agree with this portion of your restatement.

    Chip: Lindsay Whalen learning the difficulties of trying to build her own culture

    If you believe both Lindsay and Destiny could have handled this differently -- presumably not only differently, but better, i.e., leading to a better result -- surely the greater responsibility in handling it better is on the coach, who is older, more experienced, and getting paid the big bucks.

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    I like that you take the jabs about the length and content of your posts with such good humor. And I love how much you obviously care about Gopher women's sports.

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    Yes, posts that long are the gopherhole.com equivalent of "poor body language."

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    Two points: One, I'd bet the kerfuffle during the Northwestern game was only the culminating incident, not the sole cause of the suspension. And two, being a star player does not automatically transfer to being an excellent coach, where you're in a position of authority and often have to handle...

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    Yeah, the Daily comes out twice a week, the Big Ten has 14 schools, and the U of M has only Fall and Spring semesters -- no Winter!

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    Now it's the fourth day after the Illinois game, and still there is not a single word on the Minnesota Daily website about this situation. In fact, not even the game itself is mentioned there; the last thing they wrote about the women's basketball team was the loss to Northwestern on Jan. 11. If...

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    The question was whether the Bellos' situation was related, not whether the reason they didn't play was also for "conduct unbecoming." Whalen could simply have chosen to say "No comment." Instead, she said "No." If it was related -- and admittedly, we do not know that yet -- then she lied.

    Destiny PItts: Transfers to Texas A&M (All Things Suspension and Transfer Related)

    Although it's between semesters, so the twice-weekly Minnesota Daily is not coming out with print editions now, I thought there might be something on its website about this women's basketball situation. Front and center on the main page of the Daily website is an article about the men beating...

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT PURDUE IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    The similarities between the end of the women's game against Ohio State on Tuesday and the end of regulation in the men's game against Purdue are downright eerie. After going up by four points with 2:55 to play, the women were outscored 7-0, making two turnovers to Ohio State's none. After going...

    B1G Game 2: Gophers Host Ohio State (12-31-19)

    The similarities between the end of the women's game against Ohio State and the end of regulation in the men's game against Purdue are uncanny. After going up by four points with 2:55 to play, the women were outscored 7-0, making two turnovers to Ohio State's none. After going up by five points...
