Personally, I think hiring him was well worth the gamble, but it should be with the understanding that it's an experiment with a small window of opportunity. First year went great, topping it off with the NIT. Should've been something good to build on. Last year, they looked terrible! This year, barring a miracle, they're going to be even worse!

Gophers are potentially going to get tired of hearing the words South Dakota this week. After the loss to USD, they play SDSU tomorrow and I think most people would argue that SDSU is a better team than USD. Not to say that guarantees a win for the Gophers or the Jackrabbits, but I wouldn't be surprised to see SDSU pull off the win. Then the Gophers play Oklahoma State in Sioux Falls, SD on Saturday. 

Could be a long week for little Richard.

beatdown from SDSU this evening, they dominated from start to finish, and did it without their best player. Good news for gopher fans, there aren't any more D1 teams from South Dakota to play this year.

That's good to know. :blush: Was in Mpls. that night and some friends had tickets. Luckily they didn't ask us to go so we ended up at Brit's instead. Going to be a long major winter sports season at the U methinks. :(

What do you mean a long winter sports season the Men's Hockey team is leading the big 10 despite having a 7-8 record. :sick:

Speaking of which, have the gophers ever finished a non conference schedule with such a bad record?

Not in the 51 years I've been following them. Still going to some games with my Dad but looking forward to the girls games more this year.

Love going to the girls games PLUS 15$ for tickets.  Entertainment value just as good!!

I agree. When someone calls and asks if I'd like to use their tickets or go along, I always try to make it work. And I don't mind driving since they were kind enough to ask me.

Other than the Clem Haskins era when the games were vacated, forfeited or whatever, not that I can tell. There were 4 seasons when they won just one: '22- '23, '26 - '27, '28 - '29, and '32 - '33. I think I heard this is the worst start since the '22- '23 season. You can go back to look before the Barn was around here:

Fun to look at. I see Johnny Kundla's name and remembered him fondly. Nice guy.. He was my instructor in a conditioning class I had at the U. Last I knew he was still alive.

My big basketball buddy said " can't wait to get rid of Tubby's recruits" then Pitino will dominate until he moves onto a better program. I think he's lucky he had Tubby's recruits they at least got him a NIT title if that's correct ?

I cant believe the few hundred fans that attended last nights game stormed the court. U of M mediocrity at its best. After the whole losing record football bowl debacle this fall I shouldn't be surprised.

The box score says 10k fans attendance for last night, that's a pretty big stretch from I what I could see.

That is correct. In retrospect, firing Tubby at this point appears to have been a miscalculation on Teague's part. Tubby wasn't "his guy".Let's see how Little Richard's recruits do next year however. If they don't show marked improvement, someone else will have a job. Of course he may follow dad to UNLV anyway! ;)

There goes the dream season! They might even be motivated to win another game! No way Pitino gets fired now!

The M must stand for mediocre, or maybe what they aspire to.

Now, now, they may be poised to make it two in a row. I'm thinking I'd better get my season tickets for next year bought before they're gone. :D

There went my season ticket plans! ;)

Dumb. They may get the ax permanently if the precedence of what happened to some on the football squad a few years back comes into play. May pave the way for Little Richard to follow Dad to his next coaching job, UNLV or wherever.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
