Best thing to do is to have zero expectations with this team. Any wins would be just as surprising as the many losses that they racked up (when they should have won easily).

NBA are you kidding me?

The Seniors should know one thing based on their 2013 season..They have today's game then one more next Thurs. or Friday then their basketball careers will be thru..at least Rodney's, however, the Harlem Globetrotter's may take a shot (dunk) at him..Thanks for the (disappointing)memories..good riddance..Take Tubby with you..

Gophers are an enigma in that they can win on neutral courts evident in early season tournaments but fail miserably on the road in the Big 10. Whoever wants to win the most will win today's Illinois game because both teams are similar, but it's hard to ignore the disappointing nose dive the Gophers took the 2nd half of the season. This problem must be addressed and corrected. It's was unexpected and unacceptable.

This Gophers team will probably sweep this weekend tournament then lose the first game of the NCAA to some also ran team with a poor record. That is the kind of year they are having. Regardless, good luck...

Of couse, they know that time is short as they are seniors. On the other hand, as the all confernce player rankings proved, they are not a very talented team given that according to the coach's selection, the only one that really mattered, only Mkwabe made the team and that was the third team and only Andre Hollins made honorable mention. That means, that in spite of all of wishful thinking claims made about how talented the Gopher team was, the coaches, that is, the folks who would know, were not impressed at all with the "talent" that Tubby point on the floor. They wree good enough to win a big game here and there which they did but not at all good enough to play consistently with basketball talent, grit and confidence to beat the teams that they on paper should beat. Watch the confernce tourney beginning today and see how many, if any, of the Gopher players are better (consistently) than their counterparts on the 4-5 good conference teams. They simply are not that good and that is why they finished 9th in the confernce...a true reflection of their level of talent and basketball ability.

Their "last hurrah"? When was their first?

I will miss Rodney as much as I will miss missing all his misses.

"beat the teams that they on paper should beat"...."They simply are not that good and..a true reflection of their level of talent and basketball ability"..Wait!..What, now?...How can they be better on paper than their opponents, but those losses are 'a true reflection of their level of talent and basketball ability"?..You lost me on "paper"...

"Their "last hurrah"? When was their first?"...Beating No.1 Indiana.
