Quick addendum to what Hrothgar and I wrote late last evening, we don’t have enough great players to beat Texas, Kentucky, or Wisconsin this year. If that is your measure, well then we know this year’s Gopher team will not measure up.I think this take is generally true; but Samedy is over-evaluated just a hit. She had an incredibly good Senior season, but prior to that, she was just really good… not extraordinary like Plummer or Rettke or even upper-class man Wilhite. Wenaas or Landfair or Wurcherer could easily be a Samedy in my opinion.
However, some would say (me included) that if we finish maybe third or fourth in the Big Ten and say Seventh, Eighth, or Ninth nationally, that is pretty damn good. I still think those results are very achievable out of this team and should be celebrated if it happens.
