    What defense were they playing in the fourth quarter. I don't know but it sure looked like they were playing a soft zone, no big plays, lots of holes underneath. Sit back and watch them beat us seemed to be what they were doing.

    Shooter: Don’t think Gophers basketball’s 6-9 sophomore Pharrell Payne isn’t going to get mega-NIL offers elsewhere after the season

    SMU has a backing similar to Texas and Texas A&M as far as money goes. Much deeper pockets than any of the other schools in Texas. If the big money donors decide they want a winner in today's world I don't doubt it is going to happen.

    Right now they only have two scholarships for 2024, I know you can assume a couple more are going to open up and over commit or wait until t happens and fill from the portal which is what I believe the Gopher staff is doing.

    All Things Class of 2025 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    If he committed to Miami then Minnesota probably wouldn't of even had enough for the down-payment on the NIL much less the total amount. Even if his skills were a match no mystery to me why no offer.

Asuma and Grove commited pretty quickly though. Just because the recruiting sites rated other guys higher doesn't mean the...

    Minnesota needs an OC

    Agree, when you can't run the ball play calling gets pretty tough. If they can figure out a way to establish even a decent running game this offense could be very good.

    How long before football completely splits off and stops paying for the non-revenue sports?

    I agree, Football and Basketball will follow the existing conference structure, that's what the TV contracts are paying for.

    The roster was retooled to address that problem. He shouldn't have to guard a guy like Crowl this year. When they go against teams like Wisconsin, Purdue, or Illinois that have a of big man in the middle Wilson should be more than capable of holding his own when Payne is in foul trouble or needs...

    Andy Katz podcast with Ben Johnson

    When Battle and Garcia were healthy they played tough, with Carrington getting experience and recovering from his injuries I thought they were decent.

    Kadyn Betts

    I think this Betts thing is getting out of hand. He might be a nice fourth option on the team if he exceeds expectations.
