The Gophers will not be prepared to start fast just like they were not at Indiana, get behind early and then make a game of it late and come within ten points of beating Michigan. The smart guys predicted a 4th or 5th place conference finish for the local lads and the loss tonight and a loss to Wisconsin in the near future will be consisent with that pre-season prediction.

Huge game for the Gophers not only for this season but for future seasons. An impressive game on ESPN in prime time would help reel in the studs coming up statewide. Got to reduce turnovers and crash the boards.

Seems early to say must win but,I think it is. Lose this game,then lose to Wisc. out of top 25,bottom half of big 10 and more of the same.GO GOPH'S

strange, we've seen the gophers start fast in particular when they're able to get to the post early and score from the key. Stay in front of these really good guards for Michigan and run the offense. Manage the game and get to the second half where MN can use their depth. Should be a good game.

Let's focus on tonight's game and stop predicting the Wisconsin outcome. I think the Gophers have a great chance of beating Michigan. If they play defense like they did against Illinois and the second half of the Indiana game we will win. And to the fans that are lucky enough to be at the game, make the Barn a ‘hostile’ place to play, rattle the Wolverines, be the 6th player. Go Gophers!!!!

Some rats leave, even before the ship is in danger of sinking.

This game will come down to the last ten minutes and the coaching takes over. MN has no apparent preparation for this part of the ballgame as evidenced by Tubby's failure since his arrival. IMO he is the worst in the Big ten. He hasn't even been able to design an in-bounds play up to this point. Thanks Kentucky.

This is really good Michigan team that is going to challenge these Minnesota kids. I look at Michigan's lineup and if these kids all stick around for another year and don't turn pro after the season is over... Michigan arguably could be the top team next year. I hope the Gophs stick it to em, but this Michigan team is one that have to respect. As a fan of college hoops, I really enjoy watching this Michigan team operate. Go Gophs! SKI-U-MAH!

Does this team practice? Game after game, first half turnovers make it too hard to comes back. Especially against good teams. Should have beat Indiana and now Michigan. Tubby needs some psychological practice sessions to work on the head games. Stupid mistakes.
