This is getting all too familiar. Every local team seems to excel only in finding ways to lose.

Julian Welch really laid an egg when it mattered...when will Tubby find any clutch players? Speaking of Tubby, starting to have a tough time figuring out the difference between his tenure and Dan Monson's wasted years. One similarity...impossible to figure out what their half-court offense is supposed to be doing.

And to think I thoughy Welch was a clutch player! The missed layup was worse then the FT, what a choke artist. Seriously I can't take this garbage in this state. Why can't we just have a good night once and a while, is that to much to ask for? MAKE a G/D FREE THROW, you shoot 90%, so sick of this!

Gophers totally outplayed Illinois, but like usual the team from Minnesota doesn't have a go to player, so eventually the other teams stars make play's.This is not on Tubby the made play afte play down the stretch but our "Clutch" PG pi**ed his pants, and choked. Ralph may have had 22, but his lazy ballhandling in OT cost the Gophers the game.

I'm getting tired of RS III standing at the 3 pt line and the guards getting their shots blocked when they go inside and try to make layups. Isn't there something wrong with that picture?

I am getting tired of the negative comments by fair weather fans. If you don't like the Gophers, find someone else to follow.

Ralphie - wake up!! Looks like he is freaking sleep walking. And Welsh, not a clutch player - going to be a long season now that the cream-puff games are behind them.

Same old story here. No half court offense and Sampson is a liability, put the young kid in from Nebraska as at least he gives a da** and plays hard. Williams getting better though which is nice to see.

Fair weather fan's! Do you think I would choose this pathetic school or state to follow if I didn't grow up here. I am not fair weather, I am just an idiot for ever following any team from Minnesota, besides the Twins.
