I predicted it, and for a change, I was right.  Minnesota wins the NIT tournament.

B1G basketball has had a great showing this year again.  

Congrats to Minnesota and their coach Pitino.

The "legend" of Richard pitino grows.....  It will give commentators even more to talk about, while showing pitino on the sidelines for 20% of the telecast in which the gophers play.

Considering it's like winning the Triple A league Championship I am happy for the Gophers and it's good for the B1G and recruiting!!!!!!!

The sports community in the Twin Cities seems to have a pretty good perspective about this. The Gophers are happy for the publicity and for playing well, but they realize it is only a consolation tourney. 

The funniest thing was seeing the Rick Pitino Sr. acting like a helicopter parent, coaching from the second row during the final minutes of the game!

Thanks for keeping a pulse on it for us, so glad they didn't go delusional on us. They can always chant ----

Good job Minnesota...repping the Big Ten well.  The best team to not make the big dance.
