I’m done with you, Gopher basketball.

Why Minnesota’s loss to Middle Tennessee has divorced me from Gopher hoops.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Minnesota vs Middle Tennessee State Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Just copied and pasted from what I said about Minnesota Golden Gophers basketball tonight:

(1) yeah, wisconsin got screwed

(2) this is funny and a Good Thing, because fuck wisconsin

(3) minnesota was never a 5-seed

(4) minnesota was never a 6-seed

(5) minnesota may have been a 7-seed

(6) clem ain't walking through that door. you are a 7-seed if you're lucky. enjoy.

(7) wisconsin is a better program than minnesota. I'm now going to shower for 3 years.

(8) seriously, minnesota, try beating wisconsin in football or basketball before reaaaaaaaally projecting that sports insecurity complex for the world to see.

I just want to mention that this is why I'm fucking sick of Minnesota basketball already. And why I was in 2006 when I started cheering for Northwestern and stopped cheering for Minnesota. This strangely entitled fanbase is just a fucking bear to listen to, and they continue to poke the overweight wisconsin bear despite doing fucking nothing to actually convince us that they're good and wisconsin is not.

Clem is not walking through that door, Murray Warmath is not walking through that door, and Jan Ganglehof is no longer employed by the university. You are a fucking joke in the Big Ten and no one who matters takes you seriously. Just fucking give it up, Minnesota.
