Did you hear that Gopher Basketball finally got a Big Ten win last night? Hard to believe, but it happened and it happened over the #6 ranked Maryland Terrapins. Seems like a Nugz is in order.
- According to Eric Thrall's page (which I use ALL THE TIME), last night was the first time Minnesota has defeated Maryland...ever. 1-5 lifetime against the Terps.
- Here is the Testudo Times article on the loss for Maryland.
- GopherSports recap.
- Amelia's quick thoughts after the game. "No one with a soul enjoys watching a team go on a long, seemingly bottomless skid, and the one Minnesota endured was a doozie." Unless that team were Iowa, then I'm all for it.
- A BTPowerhouse look at the Gophers in late-game situations. (this was written before the Maryland win, which changes nothing about the valid points in the article)
- Courtstorming videos from all angles. Personally I'm not a fan of storming the court as a 1-14 team, but whatever, they are college kids having fun. I'm not offended in any way.
- Bubble watch? Maybe? Just kidding.
- Big blows to Iowa and Maryland, recapped by one of our own at Off Tackle Empire.
Gopher Football Stuff - by the way Spring Practice is less than two weeks away. Hard to believe but it is almost here.
- The 2016 game to look forward to the most is the conference opener against Iowa.
- Off Tackle Empire has some spring positional rankings for the conference. I think safeties is a big miss without any mention of Damryus Thomas, but he did miss much of the season and if you aren't intimately familiar with Big Ten safeties then I suppose it is understandable. Offensive line sees the Gophers ranked 14th, which maybe is fair but for the fact that they are totally wrong on projected starters.
