    Minnesota on ESPN

    For all the people saying Hilton wasn't loud enough last night, turn this game on and tell me who is louder, us or them? They're actually ranked too.

    This has been one of the more entertaining games of the year.

    Only saw the finish, but I really enjoyed it.

    Re: Minnesota on ESPN

    i just got back from the game. It was loud, but not even close to Hilton loud during good stretches. I realize the barn is way way smaller than Hilton, but it can get really loud. Tonight was decent.

    Believe me, the fan base up here definitely isn't in love with Tubby. They don't hate him, but they really have high blood pressure and ulcers because of him.

    Game was pretty darn good. Can't believe Purdue didn't put the ball in Johnson's hands more. He was so money in the first half. Kind of surprised that MN pulled it out. They stood around a lot on offense in the second half. Looked like us last year a bit.

    Finally, I'm glad we didn't get Colton Iverson. I've been to several games up here and watched many more on TV. That kid is weak, scared and confused on the court. Big body, but he doesn't do anything with it. He's pretty much only good for 5 fouls. I know you guys will say we could have used him last night... or at least his fouls, but trust me I'd rather not have to deal with the black hole he is on the offensive side of the court.

    Being louder then The Barn is not the measuring stick for Hilton Magic.

    Re: Minnesota on ESPN

    Doesn't the Barn hold a ridiculous amount of people?

    Only about 400 more than Hilton.

    They're ridiculous by nature of being Minnesotan, though.

    In the past, The Barn was the largest college basketball arena in the country with a capacity of over 18,000. Over the years there have been multiple reconfigurations for a variety of reasons to reduce the current capacity to 14,625.

    Re: Minnesota on ESPN

    Do you suppose they call it "The Barn" because they used to hold various types of farm animals in there?

    1. Tubby Smith is the best thing to happen to Minnesota Basketball since I've been alive. I don't know who you've been talking to, but everyone I know loves Tubby.

    2. Colton is still a sophomore. He is only going to get stronger and more confident, and from what I've seen, he is far from a black hole. Devoe was a black hole. And if anyone on the Gophs is confused all the time its Ralph.


    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft.

    My gawd you are just a ray of sunshine aren't you?

    The schedule is what it is. ISU's record is what it is. I don't understand why you constantly have to rip on it.

    I don't know just how old you are, but Clem Haskins won 10 NCAA tournament games while at Minnesota, including a Final4 trip in 1997. Sure, all hell broke loose after an acedemic scandal, but it is still hard to ignore what Minnesota was like in the mid-1990s. Tubby is a great coach, but until he has some type of NCAA tournament success, Haskins will be the guy that put Minnesota basketball on the map. Before Haskins, Minnesota had a total of 2 NCAA Tournament appearances. Haskins is to Minnesota what Orr was to ISU.

    Your numbers indicate that we are 3-4 against teams you claim have a pulse:

    Wins: Creighton, Iowa, Virginia

    Losses: UNI, Cal, Nebraska, Kansas


    How you decided to include Iowa in the "teams with a pulse" category is beyond me. They are ridiculously horrible. 7-9 does not equal having a pulse.
