I hope you'll excuse our lack of enthusiasm lately as another season, once the most promising in decades, is on the verge of spinning completely out of control. We'll do our best to keep plugging away.

Tubby Time has run out in Minnesota

Call it the straw that broke the camel’s back, call it the last straw, use whatever euphemism you’d like but Sunday’s thrashing at Iowa finally did it for me and Tubby Smith. For the first time in his six-year tenure as the head coach at Minnesota I think it’s time for the Gophers to consider [...]

Buckeyes dominate must-have game

COLUMBUS, Ohio - There was Aaron Craft, on the floor for probably the seventh or eighth time in the game, mouthpiece half-hanging out of his mouth and eyes focused directly on the ball he'd just poked free. Craft hit his knees, then his chest, then he hit the ball forward with his fingertips. Three bounces and a pass later, Minnesota had to foul to stop a dunk. Deshaun Thomas...

Adversity nothing new for Gophers' Mbakwe

MINNEAPOLIS Before he arrived at the University of Minnesota campus, point guard Andre Hollins often watched his future team on TV. His parents bought the Big Ten Network just so Hollins, a Memphis native, could see every Gophers game. As Hollins sat and watched Minnesota during the 2010-11 season, he saw an imposing force in the low post that went on to lead the Big Ten in rebounding...

Have The Badgers Hit Their Stride?

Just over two minutes in to Sunday's matchup with Ohio State, the Badgers and Buckeyes were all tied up at six after an Aaron Craft jumper from the top of the key. At that point, it looked like the game was bound to be an offensive shoot-out; a style that certainly did not favor the Badgers. Eight minutes and a 18-0 run for Wisconsin later, the Badgers had themselves a 24-6 lead...

Buckeyes Force 24 Turnovers, Whack The Gophers

This year’s Buckeye team was always going to have an offense that trailed the defense. The defense has been on an elite level among the college ranks for the last couple years, and they showed exactly why last night. The 18th-ranked Ohio State’s defense forced 24 turnovers and held Minnesota to under 30% shooting as they allowed just nine points in a stretch of 15 minutes in...

No. 18 Buckeyes trounce Golden Gophers

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- No. 18 Ohio State played great defense, there's no question about it. But much of the blame for Minnesota's lopsided 71-45 loss to the Buckeyes on Wednesday night stemmed from a world of mistakes by the Golden Gophers. "You get beat bad when you don't make shots," coach Tubby Smith said. "It's a combination of shooting poorly...

No. 18 Ohio State rolls past visiting Gophers

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- No. 18 Ohio State played great defense, there's no question about it. But much of the blame for Minnesota's lopsided 71-45 loss to the Buckeyes on Wednesday night stemmed from a world of mistakes by the Golden Gophers. "You get beat bad when you don't make shots," coach Tubby Smith said. "It's a combination of shooting poorly...

Monday Has A Feel. Friday Has A Feel. Thad Matta Has No Feel.

Deposit sperm here. Yep, here I go again (on my own!!!), using local fodder to make up my own stories and troll Ohio Buckeye fans. But tonight begins the start of what is arguably the most important week of the season for Pear Nose’s bunch. Let’s face it: they’ve played like **** over the past two weeks after a moral victory in Ann Arbor where Aaron Craft hilariously played...
