All I’m saying is they aren’t that great and we played as hot as can be and got lucky to survive. That was c a clean block. I’m not arguing with anyone, just pointing out it’s not a great win as this isn’t a great team in OSU and they will probably be 8th in the B10
I love when posters like this tell on themselves after a big win. “Quick, I have to remind everyone that this team isn’t that good!” You’d rather be negative than enjoy a well-fought win.

I had a ton of fun watching this game. Maybe they’ll get hot now, or maybe they’ll lose out. Who knows? But tonight was good, just enjoy it.

The fact that we aren't that good should make tonight even more fun. If you have a really good team, I get being ho-hum when you beat a bottom dweller.

Why are you even watching the Gophers if you can't even be happy about a win? Your consistent negativity, even in a win, is pretty telling...

FS1 post game is throwing the BIG Officials under the bus. They saw what we see ever game in this league.
I give credit to Jim Jackson, an Ohio St guy, for being the guy to change the discussion over to MN and what we did well.

It was a bad call but Cooper also got the ball back afterwards. It is what it is and we’ll take it.

Great effort!

Was able to watch most of the first half! Missed the entire 2nd half. Looks like that was a bad move on my part!
Garcia was outstanding on the first half!
3 straight missed free throws at the end! But got the last one!

And apparently I’m in the minority because I enjoyed the broadcast. Something different and cool to hear the coaches.
During the second half I didn't mind so much. However, there are better ways to organize the screen so the game isn't shrunk so much. That's my biggest gripe. I can't imagine people who had to watch that on a smaller TV or a tablet or phone or something.

Gimme a break. Not a great win? Beat a team going to the dance on the road! Everyone talking about this is the worst team ever and not gonna win a conference game and this is the only thing you can come up with? Yeah we aren't a great team. Give credit when credit is due. Played great tonight.

I don’t think anyone after watching this game would look at OSU and say they are a great team. No speed at guards (they can’t even penetrate against our lack of speed, which is a well known issue). Don’t really shoot threes (12 total shot). No elite bigs…

What are they top tier at?

I see a team that is continuing to improve and learning how to play together. I also saw a team committed to playing good team defense and diving for loose balls. That was a blast seeing and hearing the coaches during breaks. Regardless of what some posters want to say, I thought Johnson was coaching his ass off.

My biggest complaint - for the love of all that is sacred, every player must shoot 100 free throws minimum per day for the rest of the season. If any player doesn't get at least 70%, shoot another 100. It is maddening that they shoot so poorly as a team.

They should make this a paid option for every game…extra revenue streams for the schools.

Stop playing chess when CBJ apologists are playing checkers! As a fan, I would hate to be forced to watch a winning program sooner than 4 or 5 years down the road

Good post. I said before but the last 3 games have been marked improvement. The free throws are tough, when you aren't a great team little things like that need to be better. Again give them credit they fought through the missed FT to get a nice win. Any win in Columbus is good.

Fun to see Garcia at this level and small bits of good JB now.

I watched the game in a bar so only got about the first 5 min of CBJ talking (GREAT idea by FS1). Was exactly like I assumed, calm and supportive. That's fine when we are playing well. I would still like a little more fire and quite frankly some rage at both players and refs when necessary.

That was an air ball. Everyone carries the ball. On the air ball, the missed call lead to nothing, on the block it lead to the gophers win…big difference.
Wet blanket is the perfect name for you. You’re fun to laugh at. Thank you 😂👍🏼

What is the purpose of replay if you are just going to make shiiiiit up. Enforce the rules...don't make your own rules up.
They FOR SURE made that up, completely. They can't call a foul on a review, so they essentially called a foul by substituting an improper out-of-bounds call. That's the kind of thing that would get protested if it were a baseball game, and the protest would be upheld. It was an intentional and willful circumvention of the rules.

What a great game. Look at these strong stats for the Gophers! Really good effort and prime time coaching by Ben Johnson.

I think Carrington and Henley will start catching on better later in the season. Even Payne too needs some time and still got 10 points, 3 rebounds, and some fine "presence" on the floor.

Just got done watching that game, that was AWESOME!!! Love the TV coverage and Ben's coaching. He really outcoached Holtman. Every time out Ben had a play drawn up along with a focused message to deliver. Holtman hardly had either. They had the refs (no way was that ball touched), the clock operator (really, you don't start the clock at that point of the game), but we get the win.

If I'm Taison Chatman, I'm thinking I chose the wrong team. Can you hit the transfer portal before you even step foot onto campus???

Just finished watching the game...I stood for a lot of the 2nd half. What a he'll of a game..nothing but positive tonight. Shutting down OSU high powered offense while making clutch free throws.

This has to be a big boost for the team!
