Remarkable turnaround from last year. Nothing to hang their heads about.

None of you showed up today but you still exceeded my expectations. Great year. It ends embarrassingly but hopefully you learn and we are better next year.

Was a fun year...we lose Akeem and hopefully a few of the bench warmers before the start of next season. We need some grad transfer bigs in the worst way. Konate...woof, Gaston...who?

This season exceeded most peoples expectations. Really hard to see them get drilled in the first round but I hope they use this as motivation for next year. Go Gophers !

Disappointing end to a better-than-expected season. Coffey is going to be an awesome player. Mark my words - we're still on the rise!

Very nice season and I'm excited again for Gopher hoops - looking forward to next year already. This loss will sting, but can be used to drive forward and add that much more effort to a better season next year.

Very unexpected successful season! Still sad Springs got hurt and couldn't finish. Wish he could come back next year!

Very good season, I expected them to be much better but still only win 8 or 9 conference games and be on the bubble.

No excuses next year, they need to make a run.

Great year. I love this squad. Next year will be even better and I think we are in for a nice long run of solid seasons. We have finally have a solid base.

We went dancing and ended the year against two, very hot teams. Nothing to get down about.

Program is on the rise.

I'm very disappointed. And lost a fair chunk of money on this game.

But I am sooooo excited for next year. I have season tickets for the first time in my life. And a coach I really like.

Unbelievably excited for next year. No seniors out on the floor for us today, so bright things are still to come.

As a whole we did much better than what I ever thought they would do. As a result it was tough to see them lose today. I believe in these guys and with the experience they got this year they clearly will be back on a mission.

This is going to be a long drive back from Milwaukee, but I can't express enough appreciation for this team. How long has it been where we have had a team like this. Next year could very well be a special year. I'm 23 and got my season tickets all set to go for next year. I have a lot of other things to be spending money on, but these guys have me sold. This loss will hurt for awhile, but the future is bright in Minneapolis!

A bit dramatic, are we? None of them showed up today? Really? And how was that embarrassing?

So proud of this team. Losing Springs that late when we had no depth to begin with was killer. If we have him or else play even remotely close to our normal defensive or rebounding ability, it's a much different game. That was a hell of a season and the most fun I remember having since early in Tubby's tenure. Couldn't be more excited about the future of the program.

What a fun season. Was really a joy to watch this team literally start from the bottom and make a nice run. A lot of momentum to carry on into the next year. To lose in the 1st round is definitely a bitter way to end the season but cannot complain about the year this team had. The Springs injury was too much to overcome. Hopefully can address some of these depth concerns in the offseason and really build on what was accomplished this year

Great season! Exceeded expectations! Still young and returning so much, and adding more as well, next year could be very special. So proud of this team so far. Lets hope they handle this last lost with class and maturity and use it to learn and inspire them in the future.

I'd like some money for every time someone said this (no one showed up) and Murphy was a stand out in a tough game. Gotta love Murphy's efforts in this game!!

Awesome season this year, really proud of all of the players. Disappointing end, especially for Springs, but that's life sometimes.

There's so much room for growth on this team, the sky is the limit if they can stay hungry.

Indeed good comment. Heard today probably the TV feed that we were the the youngest team in the Big Ten this year. That makes me feel even better for next year and beyond.

Coffey and Murphy were good no question. I don't know how acknowledging this was a bad performance takes away from the rest of the season or excitement for the next.

I enjoyed the heck out of this season. The young guys bought in and played well together. The barn was restored. Tip the cap to MTSU for a well played game and game plan.
