per Marcus:

Richard Pitino sat anxiously at a U.S. Bank Stadium club room on Selection Sunday this March knowing the Gophers would be picked, but he didn't want to possibly play Louisville in a second-round matchup as some predicted.

"I hope they wouldn't do that," Pitino said then.

I've been told that Louisville and Minnesota have been trying to figure out when to play the past few years, but schedules haven't aligned. Could we have some help Basketball Gods?!

How perfect would it be for the Gophers to meet the Cardinals at U.S. Bank Stadium next November as that still-unannounced warmup game for the 2019 Final Four in Minneapolis? If father and son still want to play each other, then why not in a 60,000-seat stadium?

I think we can cross Louisville off our list of future non-conference opponents now.

Go Gophers!!
