If the Gophers can get by Purdue today, they will face Illinois or Ohio State in the finals on Sunday. A win today pretty much locks up a bid to the NCAA tournament. Read that sentence again...I know right? I don't believe it either.
I am guessing I will fill out no fewer than 10 different brackets for the tournament and I won't be picking this inconsistent team to win more than one game in any of them. Still...its nice to see the Gophers (sort of) playing like a real team again. At least over the last three days. There is no guarantee for anything more than that going forward. I won't get sucked in. At least not until they win the Big Ten tournament. If that happens, don't make me cheer against them.
