    What do you think of what you have seen here so far this year? Serious question.

    10" height difference-no chance.

    No. Two fouls. Missed opportunity for experience. He should have been out there.

    Paynes court length run to the bucket made the first half worthwhile. We need a ton more from Battle and Garcia.

    Gophers coach Ben Johnson outlines objectives for his freshmen

    I don't take much away from this. Ben is digging for positives out of a rough start. Let's see if what he told them works today. Do they come out and play as individuals or do they begin to gel as a team? We need to improve every game and be a solid team by the end of this year. The rest is all...

    The schedule isn't doing them any favors? I hope you mean the upcoming Big Ten games...because our schedule so far has been fairly soft.

    Love it! Ben's offense is not making the defense move (or the players aren't running it). It's easy to defend us right now.

    I think Payne could guard a stretch 4 today- no problem.

    Good post. The Purdue comparison is interesting, I thought of them as well. I think that the Payne/Evans pairing is more athletic though and Payne would have to have an outside shot to make it work. It's early on Payne. The assumption is that what you see is what you get- a guy who gets all of...

    Start your best 5 Ben.

    OK. I'm just saying what I heard. I'd love to see a 6-2 kid with speed and handles come here as well.

    There is a reason this comes up. Ben might be successful here- I see some good signs and I like him. However, the situation is comparable in that, with Pitino, we put a young, promising, but totally untested coach into the toughest job in the Big Ten other than NW, historically. He obviously...

    There is no lineup that Payne doesn't start in next year. Ben thinks Christie will be a great PG- better than Holloman.

    He made some fatal mistakes early. His whole system was based on getting high end athletes. He shot for the moon on 5 stars his first year and missed on all and then had to settle on kids with varying character or that didn't fit his system. That class busted and then he got another class that...

    People think that with modern basketball you have to have a stretch 4 so Payne can't be a PF. I say you put your best talent out on the court, build a system that works with it and make other teams adapt to what you have. Payne and Evans would be a very solid defensive combo.
