    Badgers QB Coan Has Surgery on Injured Foot, Will Miss Extended Time

    Fascinating implications on the B1G West race, and our game at Madison on 11/28. Jack Coan, the University of Wisconsin football team’s senior quarterback, suffered a foot injury at practice this weekend. Rumors of Coan’s injury floated online Saturday, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel...

    Georgetown's Legendary Coach John Thompson Passes Away

    Those early '80s Georgetown teams - especially the one that played the epic 1982 championship against Carolina - ignited my love for college basketball that lives to this day. Thompson was a hell of a coach. RIP.

    BTN Announces Big Ten All-Decade Hoops Team (Murph 3rd Team)

    BTN announcing it's Big Ten All-Decade basketball team, starting today with the Third Team, which includes Jordan Murphy. The same Jordan Murphy who is second in the history of the conference in rebounding. Damn, imagine the career achievements of the 10 guys ahead of him! If Murph is 3rd team...

    "All Things" Curse

    As we lose another highly touted recruit to another school, it again raises something that’s intrigued me since joining GH 7 years ago: that we invest significantly more time, opinion and debate on players that ultimately choose not to attend the University of Minnesota than on those that do. I...

    The Scheme on HBO

    Has anyone watched The Scheme on HBO that details the FBI investigation into payment of college basketball players, and centered on Christian Dawkins? Excellent documentary of a truly wild story. I heard the Feds' case was weak throughout the trial, but the behind-the-scenes story was pretty...

    Retiring Big Ten referee Dan Capron Tell Stories of Coaches and the Conference

    Fun takes from outgoing B1G referee Dan Capron in the Chicago Tribune, including these gems on PJ: P.J. Fleck? He’s very intense. He should probably switch to decaf. I think he thinks that he is still playing the game. And he’s not. But, boy, you can’t argue with the success he has had. He...

    Former Badgers commit Tyler Herro criticizes Wisconsin's system in wake of Kobe King's departure

    Shame what's happening in Madison. Probably a lot of pearl-clutching in Lakeville too.

    Gophers ranked 9th in final list by The Athletic

    Stewart Mandel of The Athletic places us ninth in the country and second among Big Ten schools in his second-to-last ranking (only 1/2 with LSU/Clemson is still TBD). We’re up in some rarified air with the big boys here. I love the sound of “Minnesota...Top 10 team.” 1. LSU 2. Clemson 3. Ohio...

    Does anyone else find it slightly disrespectful to Jordan Murphy and his significant contributions to the program that his #3, which will most certainly be in the rafters at some point, has already been given to Bryan Greenlee without even a year's moratorium? As Clay Matthews quipped when the...

    Michigan Hires Juwan Howard as Next Head Basketball Coach

    I think this will either be spectacularly successful or spectacularly awful for Michigan. Nothing in the middle. <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

    Gophers All-Time NFL Team

    I came across an interesting article that listed Pitt's all-time football team, defined not by their success in college, but by their success in the NFL. I was impressed by the names on the list...many Hall of Fame luminaries and others who were excellent NFL players, so I wondered how the...

    Michael Avenatti Goes on Twitter Rant Against Duke

    Leaked Women's Tourney Brackets

    SPOILER ALERT: DON'T READ FURTHER IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED ABOUT WHETHER THE GOPHERS MADE THE NCAA TOURNAMENT. Brackets for tonight's women's tourney announcement show were briefly shown on ESPNU and some guy on Twitter captured them. Bad news is the Gophers don't appear to have made it...

    B1G Tournament

    Matchups as they stand today. I don't like this draw at all. Of course with 3 games left things can change up and down the bracket, but with the way we're playing it's going to be a rough road.
