Reports from the scrimmage about his attitude were not good. He must have ticked someone off or done something stupid...

He wasnt playing this year anyways (transfer rules) so no big loss.

I thought maybe we were going to recruit quintuplets to play. Think of the sibling synergy on that team.

So the rumor on GH is that Lofton was out drinking with Wiggins at Aqua past curfew and was caught on Snapchat and other various social medias. Also, if you believe rumors, it was not the first issue he has had and this was more the final straw.

If true (I say it is 50/50) then he is a flipping moron.

Does Wiggins think this is Canada? And if true does Aqua get in trouble for letting a 19 year old drink in their bar?

So the article stated even though not on the team he gets to keep his scholly for this year... What's the odds he's not in class next week let alone next semester? My guess is pretty good.

If he wants to play anywhere else he will be. I would guess he ends up at a smaller school somewhere but he cant slack off to do that.

Also opens up a scholly for next year... they were full. Wonder if that was part of their reasoning... This guy is screwing up and all of a sudden they have their eyes on somebody else. Makes for double trouble for Lofton.

My son mentioned to me last night that the Gophers scrimmaged ISU over the weekend and ISU looked to be the better team. ISU scored over 100 points and the Gophers scored in the 70s. ISU is supposed to have a pretty decent team this year, so I'm not too surprised with the results.

Minnesota opens its 2014-15 season on Friday, facing #8/9 Louisville in the ESPN Armed Forces Classic. Tip-off from Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico is set for 6:30 p.m. central time.

:dance: :dance: :dance: SEMPER PARATUS! WOOOO! Anyone here going to the tip-off???

Watch ESPN says broadcast starts at 7pm EST. Is there 30 minutes of pregame ceremonies? Tonight would be one of those nights were an 8pm puck drop would allow a guy to watch both games in their entirety, assuming no OT for bouncyball.

I don't like how Amelia Rayno never puts the score in her tweets.

I don't like that our free throw shooting has been terrible for the first two games.

Just noticed that our schedule is pretty favorable this season: we only have to play aOSU, Michigan, Michigan State, and Indiana once! Also, Nebraska...which is a ranked team?? I don't get it - how/why is Nebby a ranked hoops squad? Aren't they usually pitiful at bouncy ball?
Suddenly, it all makes sense: "ND produces enough sugarbeets that produce enough sugar to sweeten 27 billion gallons of Kool-Aid." ND Fun Facts :ahhh:

WOOT-WOOT!! They'll be offering the "Golden Ticket" again for the Big Ten season!!! Any other GPL-ers interested? Would be fun to have a small group going so we have more minds discussing the odds of winning and whether or not we should take the chance and go. ;)

That is a good price, if you get two games out of it you paid the ticket so everything else is playing with house money :dup:

Same price this year ($75). You pick when you start to use it and as long as they win, you can keep going.

Yup, $75. And I'm hoping, like 2 years ago, they'll also offer a "reactivation" opportunity for $10. That way, WORST-CASE you see 2 games for $85. Which is basically face value.

He's the best announcer since Ray Christensen.

The way he describes the game, his engagement of the fans and use of social media. But I think the thing I like the most about him is his distilled and unwavering passion for the school.

He's an absolute treasure.

Gopher? No. MN? Yes.

Grimm is no stranger to Big Ten country. He is a graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and from 1993-96 was the fill-in voice of Iowa Hawkeye men’s basketball games for Learfield. From 1999-2001, Grimm was the radio voice of the women’s basketball team at Iowa before moving on to KMOX. He won countless awards in Iowa for his work at WMT Radio and WHO Radio and also spent time working for WCCO Radio in Minneapolis as a program assistant for the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Golden Gophers Radio Broadcasts in 1992.

I could see that. My wife went to Luther... She is a huge Gopher fan. She wanted to transfer from Luther to U her junior year but was talked out of it by family who wanted her to just finish. She did. When she was at Luther almost all her friends were Minnesotan and upon graduation she moved with many of them to Minneapolis. She got a job at the U of MN Medical School Bookstore ... I was doing research for a prof at the Med School and was always picking stuff up at the bookstore and we met. It didn't hurt that many of her best friends from Luther were also HS buddies of mine [small town in S Minnesota].

She said the MINN Iowa game was almost as crazy at Luther with the split of students from both states than at the U or Iowa. After we were married we lived just north of Iowa City so saw it both places. Have to agree.

Last trivia... She was born and raised in Wisconsin but never became a Badger fan. Drove her parents crazy - both are over the top Badger fans. Her father was an alum.

It's an acquired taste. I wasn't crazy about him earlier but he does have enthusiasm without being a hopeless homer. His color guys are good too. Informative but not overbearing. That helps a lot.
