per STrib:

Pitino told his Gophers players this week that “we’re here for you” despite their being distanced during the pandemic. He also wanted them to think about the best way to speak out about the Floyd situation.

“Whatever help you need, let us provide it for you,” Pitino said he messaged his players. “I constantly am talking to our guys about letting our actions do the talking. I understand they live in a world of social media, but whatever we say, is this actually going to bring about some type of change? Can we affect it? … What we’re going through right now is not good by any means. We all know Minnesota is special to us. What can we do to band together to fix this? Because it’s not right.”


Go Gophers!!

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.
