Articles and Blog Posts:

Star Tribune: Myron Medcalf strokes Tom Izzo's ego.

Star Tribune: Patrick Reusse says we the loss to IU was unacceptable. "If Monson was coaching, Indiana had played this miserably and the Gophers lost, we would've been on him like George W. on Iran."

Detroit Free Press: Feature on fifth-year senior Drew Naymick, who was highly annoying during Minnesota's loss at MSU earlier in the year. He was a factor underneath the basket blocking shots and rebounding.

Daily Tribune: Spartans struggle away from Breslin Center.

CSTV: Spartans looking to bring out brooms Sunday.

PiPress: In Charley Walters' series of blurbs we learn that despite limited playing time, former Brahman, Minn. standout Isiah Dahlman is happy at Michigan State despite limited playing time.

PiPress: Tubby Smith is quite honest with Marcus Fuller, stating that he hasn't found a go-to player for big shots, down the stretch in games. I think we've seen this at Penn State and on Thursday in Williams Arena. Paging Dan Coleman anybody?

GopherNation: Predicts a Gophers win and suggests the Gophers need to shut down Raymar Morgan and Drew Neitzel.

From the Barn: Somehow we have a prediction of a Gophers win and a Gophers loss??? Either way, Spencer Tollackson and Blake Hoffarber are keys for the Gophers according to this blogger.

*** Not as much as usual here, because, well, people are probably lazy on the weekends. If you see another link, drop it in the comments section and I'll bump it up here.
