    All Things 2023 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    Thanks for making it clear. They had recruits from outside the state that were not recruited by blue bloods to get to final 4's and several Minnesota players won conference titles. My apologies for such poor and misleading writing. Jon Bryant played a huge role on the 2000 final 4 as regional...

    Ah, tough guy bully with the keyboard. Your not the boss of the board or in the position of policing other posters information or opinions. H e recruited several poor characters and was a lousy coach. Far from hate. You do not decide for me what you call hate.

    Agree. UW was able to take many kids from Minnesota that were not blue blood type recruits and win several conference titles and get to a few final 4's. Of course they have had far better coaching from scouting to development to playing efficiently. That is the Ben Johnson plan.

    Think your right. UW has achieved success without locking down the borders. Still locking for a program this century that was built by locking down the borders.

    UW never offered him. Most of a states top players do not stay home anyway.

    STrib: How have the Gophers fared in Big Ten games under coach P.J. Fleck?

    Anyone wanting Fleck fired even if under .500 this year must not be paying attention. But he will eventually have to win conference titles to make the HOF.

    Conference titles and Rose Bowl wins are what make champions and HOF members. Fleck will have to win titles. Hope he does it, big fan.

    Isaiah Ihnen has suffered another season-ending knee injury, the U said Monday.

    Can list several that were not good students before coming here and taking many easy classes. It is not impressive to me when you see what they actually studied. I do not need to list their names and throw them under the bus. People do not need to speak for me when it comes to Pitino. I do not...

    Isaiah Ihnen has suffered another season-ending knee injury, the U said Monday.

    It is 10 times easier here than Stanford and we are not 10 times more difficult than Houston or TT to get into. I agree that there are not many elite academic schools that are successful at sports. I consider us to be pretty much equal to UW but not academically elite . Suppose some of it is...

    Pitino got several poor students in school here as well as poor characters.

    Understood you were not talking Stanford. Gigantic gap between us and Stanford. In fact we are closer to Houston and TT in comparison . Love how Ben has a plan built on high character and it is known which programs this staff loves.

    Isaiah Ihnen has suffered another season-ending knee injury, the U said Monday.

    And it is not that hard to get into the U. The acceptance rates and standards are much tougher at several schools that have won at a high rate. The larger issue is do prospects fit what Ben is looking for on and off the court. My grand kids have friends at the U now that got in with less than...
