I imagine Gunner is glued to the Purdud-Squawkeye BB game. I'm waiting for Frannie to blow his stack. He's been animated... :coffee:
Hawks lost it on the 3 pt line & the defensive boards according to the box score.

Sounds about right. Caught mainly the 1st half. They couldn't hit a 3 to save their souls & Purdue's big man was a load. Then I had to catch up on my Gunsmoke reruns! 😴

Once it was 14-3 it was over. I switched to something. Iowa doesn't have the offense to get into a shootout.

Yep and DB will be happy to know that Gopher men's BB is 7-0 after beating Mississippi St. on the road this afternoon. Much more entertaining than watching the Vikings choke, again! 🙄

Glad to hear the basketballers are doing well. I'm not a basketball guy on any level so I don't watch them. Would be fun to see them do well the year after lil Ricky left.

Hawks get to play against Mark Stoop's team, Kentucky, on New Years Day. He, like both of his brothers, played for Hayden Fry.

 :scratch: Anybody see the shot that Ron Harper Jr made to beat Purdue last night? :crazy: Almost 1/2 court, 1st time in school history that they beat a #1 ranked team at any sport.

Dagnabbit I missed that along with IA getting trounced by IA St. :sleazy: Brockington must be an animal & Kalscheur started at one of the guard positions I see. The wife was watching the Vikings who came close to crapping their pants.

I'd forgotten they were playing when the Mrs. tuned it in while I was slaving away in the kitchen.Totally unexpected but an impressive win on the road over the bluebloods by a team of misfits.

When Ben Johnson was hired, I'd hoped The U would have tried harder to get a bigger "Named" coach.  But now I like the hire for 3 reasons.

Richard Pitino was the biggest named up-and-coming coach The U was willing to pay - AND who was also willing to come to the school.  Despite what Richard continued to say, does anyone really believe that he wasn't going to jump to the first blue-blood school that called if he could ever figure out how to turn the Gophers program around?   :confused:  (How'd that work our for Richard? :doah:)  I'm glad The U didn't go that route again.

After I heard Ben Johnson's first interviews, I was very impressed.  He doesn't have a track record as a winning head coach, but he struck me as an leader I would go to war with.  I'll bet that plays very well in living rooms when he is recruiting and I predict he will have continued success in recruiting home-grown talent as well as good out-state players.  He won't get 'em all, but he will do better that Richard.  :happy1:

I know it is a small sample size, but he has that team playing.  Health is the pivotal issue on a team without much depth, but if they stay healthy, I like their chances to be over-achievers this season.

Enjoyed your assessment Steve-O. Good friend of mine is a UNI alum/basketball fan so asked him about his thoughts. He was impressed with the guy, said he recruited very well for them as they had some good years with those players.

Be interesting to see if they have a letdown tonite at the Barn against Texas A&M-CC. They're 9-1 so not to be taken lightly coming off a big win on the road.

Most of these bowls are....."Never heard of it." The only ones that count are the 2 playoff games on Friday. That's why I can't believe the NCAA is dragging their feet in expanding the playoffs for more teams. :confused: :confused: :confused:

We were just talking about that this morning, making the major bowl games relevant again as part of a playoff system, rather than the subjective selection method being used now. Fine to have all these "also ran" bowl games but other than generate revenue and to a lesser extent, help recruiting potentially, not sure what the point is.

I'm guessing by the time they fly 1/2 the school to Arizona and put them up there isn't much left. Deduct the Big 10's share and Mr. Elites bogus bonus share.
