Today's Nugz theme is LOVE.
- I love this encouragement from Rick Pitino to son Richard.
"To me, it's a perfect place to raise my grandchildren. It's a perfect place for him to become something special like Bo Ryan has become at Wisconsin. That was my advice to him -- become a Billy Donovan at Florida, a Bo Ryan at Wisconsin, a Tom Izzo at Michigan State. Build something very special at Minnesota and build longevity.If Richard can build something here, I would LOVE for him to adopt this philosophy rather than the philosophy of using this job as a stepping stone to a better program.
"My feeling, personally, is why, good or bad, follow your dad? Why leave a place that can be something special?"
- I love Jerry Kill. No link. I just love what he has done with the football program and I love the enthusiasm that is building around it.
- I love Amelia Rayno (not like that, c'mon guys). She is very good at covering Gopher basketball and is an excellent writer. I'm sure this isn't the pinnacle of her career but maybe she'll stick around a while longer. And you guys should be nicer to her on Twitter
Nothing more fun than my Twitter feed when the Gophers are losing by double digits to Wisconsin.— Amelia Rayno (@AmeliaRayno) February 14, 2014
Finally, Happy Valentine's Day from Gopher Football
Happy Valentine's Day! (We hope they're still together) #Gophers pic.twitter.com/wqoDnMVvQS— Gopher Football (@GopherFootball) February 14, 2014
And I love one more thing (besides my wife, family, etc).
I love bourbon!!! The best present a woman could get a man who loves bourbon? A dozen roses...Four Roses that is.
