GameThread: Red Douchenozzles at Minnesota

Isn't this great? Pretty much a must-win game against the team we absolutely can't stand? Potentially sweeping the grouchy Bo Ryan?

The story is tiresome, but the Gophers need to create turnovers and score in transition to overcome a suspect half court offense. If they can do that and play a game in the 60s and not the 40s, we can and will win. If it's a half court slugfest, we'll be in trouble.

Expect incredible defensive intensity from the maroon and gold tonight. Last time out Damian Johnson was a mad man against Illinois. Let's hope he continues to emerge as the team's leader. In the first meeting the Gophers exposed Wisconsin as a slower team. Tubby's move to three man weave at the top of the circle in the second half was brilliant. Let's watch what kind of offensive game plan Tubby has tonight.

My Internet card hasn't been working well. I hope to be on here tonight if possible. But if it's not, enjoy yourselves below without me.

Go Gophers!
