Michigan’s injury-ravaged squad seemed ripe for an upset, but the Gophers’ poor shooting and ball-handling cost them dearly.

If you like nice warm weather and good sports teams, you need to get the heck out of this state!!! The misery continues.

When you can't make ft's you lose. Dre misses 3 of 4 and Oto couldn't make 2 in a row if his life depended on it. Very disappointing loss. When Robinson went out no way we should have lost this game. A Freshmen with an ugly shot burys us from 3 point. Neither Hollins played well at all.

Austin Hollins was MIA tonight. A senior who did next to nothing. He played like he has a case of "Tubbyitus".

Surely their worst game of the season. Way to save it for the Big Ten opener.

Well that's that. If they cant beat this Michigan team at HOME, then it looks like the Gophers are gonna have a rough year in the Big Ten. I always assumed they'd win 6 maybe 7 conference games, but after how they played against some good non conference opponents, I got my hopes up. This game just brought me back to reality. They'll be lucky to win 6 or 7.

What a terrible game by the Gophers! Michigan is missing center Mitch McGary and power forward Glenn Robinson plays less then a half and they still beat the Gophers. 15 Turnovers, 3 for 19 three point shooting, more offensive fouls then nice plays. Why is Oto Osenieks even playing 1 for 7 shooting, no defense at all. Very disappointing evening. It is going to be a long Big Ten season.

Less otto and more smith. Mo walker at least looks better. He is still bad. What does sally have to do to see the court?! The hollins bros need to step up by several degrees. Really like the moxy mathieu brings. Disappointment but oh so familiar. Can a MN team win a close, meaningful game .......
