Well, Gabe was also one of the reasons we made the tourney and won a game the year before. So call it a wash? But to expect nothing from a guy who has performed very well before seems to be selective amnesia.Gabe was the #1 reason the Gophers were bad last year. That and no bench.
I said Robbins can be a difference maker.
Maybe the other kid can be a difference maker, we will see. Until then I will continue to question kids from low end D1 universities that when they transfer are wanted by low end power 5 teams as it pertains to playing in the Big Ten.
I just think you all have been beaten down by so many years of bad basketball here. Do you all even remember what the barn was like when Clem was around? The kind of hardnosed players that played here? The highly ranked teams that came in here and got beat more often than they won? Being OK and finishing 8-10th in the conference is bad. There is nothing even close to positive about any of that.
And yes, I went to the U during the Clem years and the Final Four run. I miss it too. I never said 8-10th was "okay". I think you're just assuming the worst already and I (and some others) are looking to build some excitement going into next year. I mean, if you can't be optimistic going into a new year, why even be a fan? (I guess unless a person really enjoys being miserable?)
