Horrible loss at home - RSIII 1 for 11 Osheniks 1 for 8 - they are very young and lost what should be 5 upperclassmen((besides Mabakke) - whose fault is that?) the team dosent look like its getting better as the season progresses either - anyone on the "Flip" bandwagon?

I have been a Tubby supporter,but after this monstrosity of a game at home, no less, I think Tubby should resign at the end of the season. It is clear this team can go nowhere with him at the helm. Clem Haskins always had a team that would play high energy defense. Tubby can't get these players, who are pretty good really, to play strong defense. It is clear that the team is in disarray and in need of a change.

6-21 over the last 27 Big Ten games. It's beyond apparent that Tubby is in check collecting mode. Time to go.

I will still cheer for the team and the program. I'm losing faith in tubster and his model. Maybe he was a carpet bagger at KU and road the coattail of Rick Patino. It's not working in MN at the Barn with our die-hard fans who deserve a winner. Go get some athletes. This group is weak, poor offense, defense, bad and sad.

Last year, they collapsed down the stretch. This year, same thing. Indiana has gotten better, the Gophers worse. Whoever the new AD is, the first program that should get a cold hard eye is the men's basketball program.

I turned over to the womens' game and immediately saw 4 missed layups and a missed wide open 12 footer and switched back to the men...and saw the same damn thing.

At least they changed tactics today from their practice of the rest of the season. That is, they got behind early and stayed behind rather than coming ong strong only to find a way to lose at the edn. They are an awful team going nowhere and are simply too painful to watch play. Three more games and the season will mercifully come to an end (two in conference and once in the tourney). As predicted here at the start of the season, with Mkwbe, they had the potential to be a strong NIT possibiity with an outside chance of playing.500 in conference and the NCAA bubble. With their current leaderless team and low levels of talent, this team and program are obviously going nowhere.

After losing to Wisconsin & Nebraska, Gophers will lose in the first round of the Big 10 tourney and be "one and done" in the NIT. Same old, same old with Tubby's Gophers. Yawn.

When the TV announcers keep repeating how dull the team, the fans and basically everything about the program is its time for a change. Tubby in my estimation is the worst coach in the Big ten and its really not close. As far as talent goes this current group should be good enough to finish at or near .500. Why, game after game does Tubby feel the need to replace all 5 starters at once? No wonder these kids are hanging their heads. Syracuse, one of the best in the country only goes 7 or 8 deep. How does Chubby think he can go ten deep. His starting 5 is average at best. I hope to heck he resigns.

Hey guys, NIT is not clinched.
