Spot on.You keep saying this over and over but it's untrue and impossible to prove. There were some very alarming performances last season before the Lynch suspension came down.
No guarantee Gophers would have made tournament last season. There were at least two alarming performances (in a bad way) before Lynch went down, @ Arkansas and @ Nebraska. The common denominator was both were on the road, and neither were particularly competitive. Sound familiar?
Next couple Gopher road games will tell us a lot about this squad's maturity, or lack thereof. First one is vs. a team we're totally capable of beating, but always a tough place to win (Madison), and the next one vs. a team (Illinois) the Gophers absolutely should be expected to beat. If the Gophers don't get at least 1 of those 2, there's likely trouble in river city.
