Congrats

Post by Gopherfan33 on Fri Nov 27, 2009 9:00 pm

As a Gopher fan I'm ashamed of our performance tonight, that was the worst performance I've seen from us in a long time. Awful. Don't take that as me discrediting your team though. You guys have a great team and the better team won tonight. You guys play as a team and can actually shoot the ball from the outside, something the Gophers apparently ignore in practice and recruiting.

Again, congrats. You guys have a chance to do get in the tourney and do some damage.

Thanks for the kind words, Gopherfan. Good luck to you guys the rest of the way.

I have to think our constant defensive switches in and out of the zone messed up any rhythm you guys could put together...

Thanks. This is a big win for us. Early season rankings are always suspect, but you guys will be a quality team this year. Wins away from home are huge for us.

Yes, thanks Gopherfan. Your team has some very fine perimeter defenders, and you definitely put a scare into us at the end of the game. I still think you'll have a fine season. It's a long season, and there's a lot of basketball to be played...

Oh yeah, our defense is really good. But the half court offense looks the same as last year, which is brutal. A lot of that was your defense though, we looked lost.

Thanks for visiting, Gopherfan. To be honest I did not think the Pilots would be this good this early in the season. Minnesota has some good athletes and will be all right this year.

agreed on your perimeter D... and an off night shooting (all around, actually).

We all new the run was coming in the last minute... glad we were able to pull through with some free throws. MN is tough--this will be a very good win come March; I think MN will a lot of games between now and then.

Thanks Gopherfan... hope you aren't too bummed out about the loss, and with any luck by the end of the year it won't look like a bad loss on the resume at all. We'll try our best to keep it up! Smile

Can't say enough about our defense... we didn't shoot well, we were outmanned by their athletic perimiter defenders, we caughed it up nearly ever posession at the end... and WE STILL WON! All thanks to our terrific defense. I can't even believe it. I figured the only way we could win a game like this would be to shoot the lights out and hope to hang on. But no, we kept on grinding tonight and found a way to get the W. Unreal.

And make no mistake, this is a good Minnesota team that will easily finish in the top half of the Big 10. The UCLA and Oregon wins may be suspect, but this one isn't.

As a summer native of Glen , Mn and most of my relatives in the Twin Cities I wish your team nothing but good luck. I will now commence my cheering for the Golden Gophers for the rest of year. Beat the Hawkeyes, and the rest of the Big Ten .


Beautiful Downtown Glen Minnesota up HWy 47 seven miles north of Milac on the finest Lake in Minnesota......Clear Lake

Sampson and Iverson look much improved, Westbrook is a stud, Nolen showed why he was Mr Basketball a few years back, and I like the kid who was trying to guard Nik Ravio....Hoffagar sure moved down the rotation with the improvevement of talent this year, didn't he.

Another Gopher fan congratulating your team. Good luck tomorrow against W.V. I like how your coach ran the game, he was really on top of things. Hope you displace the Zags. Tubby said it best, "the best team won."

Go WCC!!! Finally, we can stop hearing about how crappy our conference is with the great play of Portland, Saint Mary's, and San Diego...

But MesaPilot.. What's with that picture? You've never even sniffed the NCAA tourney, so don't hate on passion of losing in the sweet 16.

Right now I think that USF (aka Dior Lowhorn) and SCU are looking like the bottom feeders. This should be the best year for the WCC in a long time.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the top 4 teams within 2 games of one another.

Mmmm.... USF has had a lot of injuries and SCU has been without Foster a bit too... I think if San Francisco gets its players back (no guarantee on that) Pepperdine is the likely bottom feeder, though Keion Bell is legit.

Santa Clara is a bit more of a cunundrum... they just aren't playing well. Is it endemic or is it temporary? I guess we'll find out, though if I were a betting man I would wager that they will regroup and be a tough out during WCC play.

Not true, Ammo lover. A Pilot team has made the last 16 for ten straight years, often deeper than that. And while there have been tears, no Pilot has EVER melted down like Adam Morrison did. Ever.

That's why it's hilarious.

(I'll let this Zag think about what I just wrote. Clearly a noob who didn't even know GU existed until this decade, so it could take a while...)

I bet Mesa has played at least as many minutes in the NCAA tourney as wegotmorrison.
