Long weekend + busy work week = Nugz not arriving before noon.
- Gopher Baseball was OH SO CLOSE to winning the Big Ten regular season title. With Ohio State just a half game back and hosting the Big Ten's worst team (Iowa), it was pretty clear the Gophers would have to sweep Penn State to win it all. Thursday and Friday were wins. But on Saturday the Gophers held an 8-5 lead after the top of the 4th inning, then sat through an 80 minute rain delay. From that point on the bullpen couldn't hold keep Penn State down and the offense could muster any more runs and the Gophers lost 10-8. I'm sure it is little consolation right now for the team that they had an outstanding season and to finish in second place is a remarkable turnaround.
- Congratulations to the Men's Track and Field team. Big Ten Outdoor (and indoor) Champs. Hassan Mead was his usual dominance in the distance events winning his 5th individual Big Ten title this school year (cross country, Indoor 3,000 & 5,000 and outdoor 5,000 and 10,000).
- Gopher Women finished 3rd.
- Gopher Men's Golf finished 7th in regionals.
- How about a Bleacher Report ranking the top 5 coaches in college basketball. Tubby comes in at #4 on this list.
