Wow, it's actually quite difficult to get outscored by 29 points in one half of basketball.

Pitino has lost this team .... this is becoming the Brewster era of basketball. It sure is looking that way ... don't fool yourselves. They have gone from decent, to mediocre, to bad, to horrible and arguable is the Big Ten's WORST team right now and sinking. I am not sold on this rookie (to a big stage conference) coach. I truly believe the U will have to rethink what they got. My gut is telling me that he will not be around to coach at the U in 2016.

30-18 lead and then you get outscored 46-16. The sad thing is this same bunch is back next year. I never thought Austin Hollins would be the worst player on the floor this year almost every game. As much as I hate to see Maverick, right now that would be a better option. Play Buggs, Kendall Schell too, this season is gone. I hope Pitino starts all 3 of freshmen coming next year. There is no way they can be as bad as this bunch Tubby left us with.

Another second half of total ineptitude on display! I didn't think it could any uglier then the second half of the Illinois game but this was just as ugly! Any semblance of an offense is all but gone! Two weeks ago when I said they had one win left on their schedule with the Illinois game I was scoffed at! Now I'm laughing at myself for picking that one! I thought seasons of totally tanking after showing some respectability were gone with Tubby, wow was I again wrong!

Great game by the Gophs tonight. They what? Lost by 18 that would mean they were outscored 46-16 in the second half. No one could be that inept.

Choke City lives on. I want to congrat the Gophs on keeping up the rep this town has for horrible teams. Hard to top this one.

Better give Richie a raise.......he's won just as many bowl games as jerry kill!

It's not just the losing, it's the WAY in which they are losing. Strength of schedule and BPI be damned--this team cannot possibly pass the eye test. Any Selection Committee member who has seen the last two games will not in good conscious want anything to do with these Gophers.

You cannot even make up how fragile this team is. One run by OSU and they quit. They need to move on from all of these kids. Find some tough minded young men because these guys are soft.

I wonder what the Ohio St coach said to his players at halftime.
