Dude thinks he's bad....

Geez Myron, don't take such glee in listing everything bad as if the Gophers are responsible for Royce shoplifting and stealing a laptop, or if Devoe can't be a one man band so decides to abandon his team and teammates and rides off to another sunset. We like the Gophers, Trevor, Blake, &Al have made it fun and exciting again. If you can't be positive go work for Dan Barreiro and drool over every adversity in the Twin Cities. Tubby has done wonders changing the hopelessness of poor teams to making the tourney with a good program. I can't wait to watch the games now, along with 99% of Minnesota, shape up please, you can be better than what you've been writing.

My favorite quote, re: Diva Joseph. “I talked with Tubby Smith a couple of times about him coming and joining our team and Tubby thought it was a good move for both Devoe and our program,” [Oregon Coach] Altman said. “I’ve known Tubby for a long time. I think it’s going to be a win-win. We need some help, some leadership. We’ve got a good freshman class coming in and we’re excited that he’s joined our team. ...(Smith) recommended very strongly that we take him. I think it worked out for both of us.” LOTS OF GOPHS RECOMMEND VERY STRONGLY THAT YOU TAKE HIM!! HAH! Tubby's willingness to jettison poor attitudes and behavior ROCKS, aside from his coaching skill.

TREVOR, Don't worry about her and let her go.. (there are a lot more fish in the sea!). Concentrate on basketball for now, and before you know-it... you will be making Million$. Then will come a time where you will be the one who will be putting on the re-straining orders against her. HA!

Trevor , keep your head up .. keep your eyes on the prize .. never let a female bring you down !

What part of a restraining order didn't he understand. Is he a real dummy or what. Mbakwe better sraighten up or the gopher's will have no recourse but to let him go....I say good ridance to a bad much baggage for the gophers to handle at this time.

I feel I know way more than I want to about the private life of a Gopher player. Girlfriend, ex-girlfriend; can't we just get a tip-off and rock the Barn?

Now we will only lose by 20 pts, instead of 30..yippee...

Another bonehead move by a Gopher player, go figure. They don't feel they meed to study or follow rules,what's new? Tubby's not satisfied by the character of his players, quit recruiting these characters. Now get to some coaching and evaluate where the team is because what you're doing is not working against the good teams. Tubby's 1st years his teams ran and pressed which took 10 players, now they play half court with 10 players standing around.

Is it time for the players to sit down together to discuss what the players need to do to stop these distractions? As a player, I would get a liitle mad when most of the players are acting properly and get hurt by these distractions. Some players need to step up to the plate, be a leader, tell some players enough is enough.
