 More important than surviving clunk-fest with Badgers was Andre Hollins' tone-setting.

A win is a win. The records don't have a place to mark ""ugly win". Let's make it two in a row Sunday.

Not hating here but really, is that what its come to now, they beat Wisconsin at home and dance like maniacs in the locker room? Beating Wisconsin was a good win, but it should have been expected.

Obviously,this game can only be a turning point in the season (and I personally think it will be looked back upon as such) if they go to Iowa and impressively beat the Hawkeyes..I think that would give them a load of confidence and get them on a roll and peaking and playing like the team we expected this year.A loss and things will look mighty bleak again..Go Gophers!

Its a funny thing about that one sport intangible that we so often forget and tend to take the game too serious....and most times was what drove us to get involved in the 1st place back when we were kids...."HAVE FUN"....Glad to see the team put the "U" in Fun after the win

Not a big Tubby fan, but I think he's dead on here. This is a team that has playing afraid, and it's hard to make shots when you're questioning yourself everytime you shoot. We'll see how it works.

Tubby should have used those happy feet and used them against the Iowa team today. Go out in front by 16 and then lose by 21. Even I could see from watching that against the press, with no pressure from Iowa, they would get the ball, take one dribble, hold the ball, make a bad hurried pass and barely get it over the half court line and then throw it away or take a bad shot. For a million and a half, and with the talent there, Tubby should be fired.
