per ESPN:

Winners

Minnesota: If things go right in terms of waivers, the Golden Gophers could ignite their NCAA tournament hopes via the transfer market. The only one of the three incoming transfers guaranteed to play immediately is Western Michigan grad transfer Brandon Johnson, and he's coming off a breakout season where he averaged 15.4 points and 8.1 rebounds. Richard Pitino also landed two players who might have to sit out: 7-footer Liam Robbins (Drake) and versatile 6-foot-6 guard Both Gach (Utah). Both would start immediately if eligible.


Go Gophers!!

This is great news, but I would also point out Jeff Goodman has Iowa at 4 and Bucky at 5 in his preseason rankings. This is why we should all be VERY critical of RP. Iowa/Wisc are no better situated than MN to have a good team, but their coaches have found a way to be excellent programs. Like Iowa/Wisc we need to temper expectations and realize we arent going to be a powerhouse every year, but we should also expect more than 10th-12th place in the B1G every year. If IA/WI can be top 5 teams there is 0 reason the Gophers cannot be.

Strongly disagree with this. Will debate in the appropriate thread if desired.
