The Gophs have a chance to win if both Hollins's are on their game and with Ralph out it is imperative that EE stay out of foul trouble. And they all need to defend the three.

One and done and then we can all talk about all of the great players Chubby has for next year and watch another disasterous year while Chubby keeps padding his 401k. Enough is enough Kaler!

Hollins may, or may not end up being an above-average player. Certainly his statistics are below average at this point for a shooting guard, Freshman or not. A key point is that he plays the same position as Joe Coleman who is supposedly another big-time recruit for Chubby. Of course, Coleman can't shoot very well but he also can't play under in this league. How does that work? This team finished tied for 9th in the B1G, where I predicted in October, and just like last year, there's no reason to think they'll be any better next year. It's time the U realizes that they're riding a dead horse.

What is with this use of the term "Chubby"? It you have something to say, why don't you just make your points and not put in the personal put downs?

Loon03, because you and others like you keep praising this incredibly overrated poser who can't recruit, develop players or coach. His program is going backward - his winning percentage at MN dropped in this his fourth full season (while, for example, Tom Crean at IU has his team at #15 nationally in his fourth year). The farther he gets from the players that Monson brought in, the worse his record becomes. So, here's what I have to say without putdowns: The U has a coach who has outlived his welcome. He is not developing a program here any more than he has anywhere else - which he never has done. He should be fired. Got it?

tuffy7Mar. 8, 1211:26 AM are correct in your analysis, but I also agree with Loon03...Chubby isn't needed.

writeonMar. 8, 1211:37 AM

Ok, Loon3 and tuffy7, henceforth I will go back to calling him Orlando, as we all should. Tubby is a dumb nickname. I started using "Chubby" about 14 months ago so it's actually grown stale. What I'd prefer to call him, however, is "Gone".

Dre Hollins may very well be the real deal, however, under "Chubbies" system he will get no more than 19 minutes a game, he will never reach his potential, he will regret ever signing with "Chubby" the clown. All you need to do is look back to Kentucky. "Chubby" Smith had Rajon Rondo, Rajon averaged 19 minutes per game over his 2 seasons with the "Chubster" It cost the "Chub man" possibly a NCAA title. Had Rajon played 30-35 minutes a game the sky was the limit. Rajon Rondo was the 21st pick in the NBA draft and the "Chubmeister" played him 19 minutes a game. Time for the "Chubareno" to go into retirement. Thanks to writeon for giving up the "Chubby" tag, I now claim it for me.

@writeon. Absolutly perfectly stated. Tubby after todays loss, and I'll be shocked if they don't lose should be gone after this year. He is the worst coach in the conference. We had no one on this team that could even make 3rd team all big ten or honorable mention. That goes to show you what we have. And for all of you who think they will be better next year, as long as Chubbys coach it won't happen. Anybody ever see a coach anywhere replace all 5 players at once? Expecially after only 6 minutes into the game with the score tied? And this mind you against once of the best teams in the country. Just a terrible coach plain and simple.
