    Tollackson Stepping Down

    Being out of the area, I don't often get to listen to Grimm, but I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that he seems pretty focused on how the "refs are screwing us" at some point during every game that I DO get to hear. It's pretty irritating. I'm with you, talk about what's working...

    Tollackson Stepping Down

    Will be interesting to see how quickly he can pick up the timing and tempo of working with a partner on a radio broadcast of hoops.

    The Athletic's Chantel Jennings: The Outlook for Minnesota

    I'm actually pretty curious about what Bueckers game is going to look like after a pair of knee injuries. Will she be the same, 90% of her former self or better than she was as a freshman? Obviously, I haven't dug very deep, but I haven't really heard anything about how she looks as she comes...

    Ilhen cleared. Fox next?

    Another tragic victim of the Great Spellcheck Disaster that seems to have lasted forever? :)

    MN Daily: Gophers Go Global on Foreign Tour

    Sor Sorry that I'm about 2 weeks late to this particular offshoot to the thread. Maybe I'm different than everybody else, but I feel weird calling somebody by their nickname when I don't know them personally. Even if they might be my favorite player from my favorite team, it feels a little...

    45% of players who entered the portal this year will not play NCAA basketball in the upcoming 2023-24 season.

    Just went through the first 2 pages of the Division 2 transfers on Verbal Commits. Of the first 500 players listed, 267 have not yet hooked up with another team yet. I'm not sure how accurate that is in that at the D-2 level, some Sports Information Depts. take the summer off and not all...

    What are you most looking forward to this season?

    That is goal # 1 and 1a. I'm also hoping to see the offense get going and look fluid earlier in the shot clock. A few more successful Run-Outs would also be fun to watch, but defending and pulling rebounds HAS to happen.

    STrib: Plitzuweit Sees Growth

    The thing that I'm looking for from this team is better defense, both in the half court and open court. Individually, staying in front of the ball a little better and particularly team defensive rotations, and general toughness. Will we force teams away from what they like to do and make them...

    Pharrel Payne '23-'24

    That time where having a decent Emoji game could've helped a little. :) If it helps, I (for one) was pretty sure you were being sarcastic.

    Jackson Purcell scholly and the softball game

    Be honest, how many were watching that and thinking; "Just the Gophers luck that he'll hit 3rd base and blow up his knee, or worse yet, enthusiastically slide into home and blow up both his knee and ankle."?

    All Things Class of 2025 Gophers Basketball Recruiting Thread

    I would think with the transfer portal being what it is, most coaches would keep the door open for players they really wanted who chose another option. Especially if there wasn't some type of personal animosity or disrespect shown the coaching staff or program during the recruitment period. I...

    ESPN Layoffs

    That's true. First dealt with that about 20 years ago with a guy who was frustrated at about the 6 month mark. I told him that most of us spent the first 5 years or so of our careers, paying our dues, then we start the serious advancements and that his chance would eventually arrive. He felt...

    ESPN Layoffs

    Generally speaking, the first half of their internship, they take up your time as you teach them. The second half of their internship, they start saving you time and start coming up with ideas and suggestions that may or may not be helpful, but are always welcome.

    ESPN Layoffs

    The more I'm around my interns, the less I like hanging around people my age. Young folks are far less boring and cynical than the boomers in my age group. Maybe I've been lucky, but very rarely have I had to deal with one that I would consider lazy, mad at the world and underachieving. Picked...

    2023 College Basketball Transfer Portal Watch Thread

    With all the conversation over the past couple of years about Ben not having a full roster, I thought this was an interesting piece of information included in the article. "At the high-major level, much less seems at stake in recruiting these days. Look no further than the rosters. Among...

    Build your own Gopher Basketball Team - Brought to you by Tony Liebert

    But I thought older and more experienced was the key to winning titles. I guess the "Age is just a number" philosophy applies to everything except playing ball and dating women 30 years younger. :)

    Braun Selected for US 3on3 Trials

    Couple of observations from the clips. I may be mistaken, but it seems like she's getting her shots from the perimeter off much more quickly than she did during the season last year. Quicker release, as long as it's technically sound, means it's tougher to defend. As far as driving to the...

    Gold Blooded Podcasts 2023-24

    Editing is a huge part of putting out any type of decent media project. I don't blame the 3 women, they're 19 year old basketball players who shouldn't expect to be polished professionals. But I would think that the person responsible for setting it up and distributing it, would want to take a...

    Mitchell commits!!

    Is it me or does it look like he's starting to develop a bit of a Dad Bod? I know, at his age, it would only take 3 weeks or so of cardio to do it, but I see a guy who could stand to lose 5-10 pounds of shrimp from his mid-section. Maybe it's just his body style and he is actually in...
