    College Basketball 2021-2022 Thread

    My "worst Badger champion" post was definitely tongue in cheek. Some here are taking it too seriously. If the Gophers somehow won the Big Ten next year and a Badger fan, say, deemed them the worst Big Ten champion in history (jokingly or not even), it wouldn't bother me one bit. Not as long...

    College Basketball 2021-2022 Thread

    I never said anything about Wisconsin not being a very good team. Their road victories prove their merit enough. But, if you are basing everything solely on wins and losses, are the Gophers necessarily better than all teams with fewer victories and worse than all teams that have more? Doesn't...

    College Basketball 2021-2022 Thread

    Okay, is this the worst Wisconsin team to ever win a Big Ten title? They are only #24 on Pomeroy and T-Rank and they are behind 3 or 4 other Big Ten teams in the stats. Obviously, they earned it by winning a lot of close games, but come on! Seems like the best Badger teams always finish in...

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT PENN STATE RARE MID-WEEK AFTERNOON IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    I think recruiting, much more than coaching right now, will be the key to whether Johnson still has a job here in 4 years or not. No coach in America could get this roster to 20 wins. If Coach K had this roster, he'd have already scheduled back surgery and asked the NCAA to expunge the losses...

    Any intel on Saturday game

    There hasn't been anything released yet about Michigan's two postponed games. I have this gut feeling that most of whatever games that are postponed won't be made up. Hope I'm wrong. And then it will be like last year where Michigan was the conference champion despite not playing 3 games and...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    I watched some of the Under Armour high school All-American volleyball match today. Okay, okay....I taped the match and only watched the parts where Wucherer and/or Booth were on the court. While I know it is only one match, my impressions were this: Wucherer will most likely start for the...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    How is where the players come from relevant at all? ALL of the better teams in the Big Ten recruit nationally. Do you know how many players starting on Wisconsin’s team this last season were from Wisconsin? Zero. Do you think John Cook panics if his recruiting class includes no players from...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    This sums things up pretty well. I've seen many posters on here and Volleytalk complain that the Gopher roster isn't deep enough. Yet there are only 12(?) scholarships available each season for a roster that is often 16 to 18 players. Let's see....ideally you'd like to have a backup for each...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    What advantage and how exactly did he "lose it?" Wisconsin wasn't some gutter program beforehand. I'm not clear how Hugh is somehow at fault for Wisconsin becoming an elite program with a really good coaching hire. How was he supposed to stop it? Recruiting has to be the worst part of...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    I don't think it's as simple as you are making it out to be. Retention of a few superb talents? Who besides Barnes was a huge loss for the Gophers? And slow movement downward in the standings? There was some definite forum pants-pissing at the start of this season after the Gophers started...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    This has to be the earliest by a landslide that the Gophers have had their roster updated for the upcoming season - even if just for the short spring season of practice games. The omission of Kasey is certainly interesting. Is she stepping away or moving on to a different job? Is Hugh opting...

    Gopher Volleyball 2022 Season

    It's really hard to nail a likely top 4 down until the rosters are set in stone. There's still a lot of player movement to be had. Transfers in and out, players opting for the extra year or passing on it, etc. Purdue and Illinois may also be in the mix. Obviously, Nebraska looks like the...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    It is definitely Hilley. She was (I believe) the #1 ranked setter in her recruiting class for a reason. Wiscy fans are fooling themselves if they think Hammill or Ashburn will be at her level. But either player should be good enough to keep Wisconsin in the Big Ten top 4 or 5 at the worst...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    If you are going to "what if", then you also have to remove the extra covid year players from all the competition as well. Those opponents wouldn't be as good either. And with no Samedy and Miyabe, then perhaps Hugh now has an extra scholarship year for Rollins and she stays. Crowl doesn't...

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    Ya know, it sorta feels like the Gophers just lost to a Badger team with 6 returning starters from a Final Four team - 5 of which are now super seniors who would have normally used up their eligibility already. Yes, oh, the embarrassment! The Badgers' clear advantage at the setter and middle...

    Possibly national player of the year too? Let's hope the Gophers don't have to make the Final Four for that to happen.

    Volleyball Recruiting - 2023

    Unfortunately, volleyball recruiting gets very little attention compared to basketball and football. There is only about one notable volleyball recruiting website and there is little free information.

    Gopher Volleyball 2021-Fall Season

    Ugh. Up 2-1 against Penn State, but hitting so poorly. Wenaas .129, Miyabe .120, Samedy .196. Some bad unforced errors in set 3 too. Hard to see them not losing this in 5 if the offense doesn't terminate better. Never had a doubt they wouldn't win! :D

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Gophers have a new commit. A 6'1" Middle Blocker.
