Gophers in danger of bubbling out?

08:18 AM ET 03.07 | As crunch time descends on so many programs this time of year, Minnesota could ill afford what happened at Nebraska Wednesday -- a deflating 53-51 loss in the final game at the Bob Devaney Center. This is crazy, I know, but the Golden Gophers might end up playing their way onto the bubble. That's what happens when you lose to Nebraska just two games removed from losing eight out of 11 games. [The Gophers] have a really good RPI and five really good wins. They also now have three bad losses. What if they lose at Purdue on Saturday and lose in the first round of the Big Ten tournament? Well, they're probably still going to be safe, but I'm not sure I'd want to test that theory.

funny how Tubby was such a better coach in Kentucky with players than at Minnesota? College basketball is 85% talent and 15% coaching. FACT

You are right. Tubby is probably the most overrated couach in college bb.

Bo Ryan wins at Wisconsin every year with slow white boys... that IS coaching.

love the gophers and anything Minnesota but they don't deserve to be in the tournament. They had some really good play early in the season but have stunk it up in the second half.
