per Cobb:

Minnesota
Liam Robbins, Both Gach

The Golden Gophers are replacing one of the country's most underrated stars in Daniel Oturu, who averaged 20.1 points and 11.3 rebounds as a sophomore center last season. That's why getting Liam Robbins eligible would be huge as coach Richard Pitino tries to get things going in the right direction again following a 15-16 season. Robbins is a 7-footer who averaged 14.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game at Drake last season. He's a formerly unheralded prospect who has undergone a physical transformation that suggests the best is yet to come as he takes his game to what is arguably the nation's toughest league.

However, it appears that Minnesota's other transfer, Both Gach, has a better case for immediate eligibility. Gach is leaving Utah after two up-and-down seasons as a wing for the Utes. He's from Minnesota, and it's already been proven that transferring home amid the pandemic makes for a good waiver case. Gach's productivity fluctuated at Utah, but he's talented enough to make a major impact on Minnesota's 2020-21 roster if he earns eligibility.


Go Gophers!!

Can't disagree with that. If Robbins gets a waiver, the Gophers suddenly have an outfit that looks good enough to break into the middle of the league standings and perhaps save Pitino's job (for better or worse).

Without him, I think Gach makes the team more watchable and could potentially give them a wild west style with all the guards, but I'd worry about a team relying on getting 30-40 minutes a game from a combination of Freeman, Omersa and Curry.

We’re long overdue for some miraculous good news (like Curry healthy and a major contributor)!
