We make his final 7. I'm afraid that's about as close to landing him as we're going to get.
To be fair, it was an idiotic statement and kind of disrespectful to Chet to say that he's "just another out of state recruit" to other programs.
So typical of Minnesota fan base ?. All the fans of every program are tweeting go to their school, it will be great. Minnesotan (Doogie) is the ONLY one who dismantled a fellow Minnesotan’s case for him to go the U, what a tool. No other example can be seen in the thread of that with any of the other programs. It’s not surprising though, I have seen it before, it’s almost like a badge of honor for Minnesotans to talk down the U.
No doubt the comment was dumb, but man Doogie hasn't been very Pitino friendly since Ben left. I get it he said gotta kiss his sources butt for info, but it's annoying when he goes out of his way
Maybe, but that’s what fans do. Do you think Doogie will go through and counter any of the other idiotic statements of other teams fans? Nope. . . and that’s the entire point
I honestly hope that Chet realizes that a majority of college basketball fans in this state think less of him for falsely including the Gophers in his top 12398 teams (or whatever the random, ridiculously large number actually is).20 yrs of crap.
Well said.I honestly hope that Chet realizes that a majority of college basketball fans in this state think less of him for falsely including the Gophers in his top 12398 teams (or whatever the random, ridiculously large number actually is).
Enjoy all the free, comped benefits Chet. Plus all the friends you take with you to free VIP/suites at Gopher games, knowing full well you won't be coming here.
I completely agree with you, but at the same time that does hold some weight in comparison to a school like UNC who regularly grabs this kind of elite talent. His potential impact at minnesota relative to a school like that is far greater. Also, f*ck doogie.
I see every situation differently. He is a rare legacy. He may want to play here if it is his dream school. He may think that Pitino is the best coach that offered him. He may care about stability, he may not. Coaches i know told me early on that they were never going to offer because they said they could not get him. UVA never offered, Duke, Kentucky, Nova ALL FELT the same. UW never offered. Is it because they are all USA basketball guys and know Mark Few, i have no idea but i know UVA was not going to waste anytime with no shot. I never assume that he has Minnesota as some token gesture.We have seen this all before. It’s part of the show.
Look at all the rosters,all the years and the recruits. The data is available to everyone. What is they are half black ? What if they are Italian, Asian, parts of several or do they need to be from just public schools in those two cities and 90 % or above black ? I never worry about what color they are or where their from. Gard cares if they are a good person,can they help a team win. Have they been well coached.How many blacks from Milwaukee and Chicago city schools have they offered?
