Well the big game yesterday is in the books and the Gophers came away with another Big Ten road win. A 69-61 win at Nebraska gets them back on the winning track as we now head into a tough stretch of the schedule.
Wisconsin and Ohio State (both at home) are what the Gophers have in store for them over the next eight days. Winning one of these games is the type of win we need to erase one of the Iowa losses. I'm not holding my breath (mostly because I'd die if I didn't breath between now and Thursday's game) but both games are at home and we just might catch lightening in a bottle.
- The Gopher basketball bench came up big again while contributing to the Gopher win on Sunday.
- The Lansing State Journal is already suggesting that Tubby Smith is your Big Ten Coach of the Year. (look under the midseason awards on the left hand side of the first page)
- Chip Scoggins has a nice profile on Oto Osenieks.
- A weekend WCHA wrap-up. The Gophers didn't play this weekend but considering we are fighting for a regular season title, everything is important.
- The staff at Gopher Illustrated gives out their 2012 recruiting awards. Always an interesting read if you are a subscriber.
- Unfortunately the Big Ten division names are here to stay.
- Finally, the Pioneer Press has a few names that could be candidates for the vacant Athletic Director job at Minnesota.
