Let's try not calling play #12 again. No reason Malik should be playing over Mav and/or McNeil.

Looks like Minnesota truly was the 69th best team.

How many teams get to end their season with a win in the NCAAs? 4? And considering the NIT is actually a pretty significant tournament, saying they are the "69th" best team is laughable.

Right I would say 60th Do they really raise a banner in gopherland for the NIT. Most schools would not if at all since the 70's

I'd be embarrassed if MSU ended up in the NIT let alone raised a banner for winning it.

Im not embarrassed at all. Im happy the Gophers won the NIT. It was a better suited tournament for them this season and gave them some great experience of tournament play against some good teams

They were better suited for the NIT, yes. It's because they aren't a good basketball team. It's the NIT.

If the NIT isn't such a good tournament, they wouldn't still run it. The NIT is still a very highly competitive tournament to play in on the bubble teams that didn't make the tourney. Its not like it isn't a nice tournament to win. Just because your team didn't come home with any postseason hardware doesn't mean you have to be all butthurt about it

The Gophers are returning a large portion of their roster next season and will be highly competitive in the Big 10 and will be in the Big Dance next season. Quote it.

Right, because 13-19 Cal Poly winning an absolutely horrid conference is better. That argument of #65/#64 is entire flawed. Sure, we aren't as good as the top few seeds, but to still conclude that most of the mid-major automatic qualifiers and such are better is just stupid. You still think Iowa ending their season on a 2-8 run and losing before the tournament starts put them above the Gophers? Plus, throw in another 3 weeks of practice, and it makes the team better for next year. Gophers should be much better next year as well. Austin has become our best player, so hopefully a recruit can replace him, but Mav hasn't played much and that one white dude on the bench can easily shoot better than Malik has been. Especially since little Dre continues to improve and should be better next year, and eventually our big men can play multiple good games at a time.

Ahhh you Gopher fans are cute, trying to make the NIT a big deal. Then calling out MSU and AZ fans saying they went home empty handed, I'm pretty sure any school would prefer the Elite 8 over an NIT title.

I think I'll somehow survive not hanging an NIT banner this year. (Ignoring of course they'll end up hanging a Big Ten Tournament Champions banner from this year)

I'll take a birth in the dance over any clown show going on in the garden.

Although I would be happy for the kids of the institution and am for those kids. However its A few of the fan perspective/comments like your above that make it laughable at the same time
