LIVE CHAT: Hit me with your Gophers and Bigfoot questions at noon!
January 13, 2014 — 9:40am
Starting at noon, I'll be chatting live about the Gophers, college hoops as a whole, that Bigfoot hoax that people won't stop asking me about (Rick Dyer is a fraud, people) and anything else interesting you can come up with. There's plenty to discuss so ponder up your questions and leave them in my cue -- that way I can jump right in at 12! Talk to you then.
This is Amelia Rayno's fifth season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News. Follow Rayno on Twitter @AmeliaRayno.
The question now is whether Minnesota can move past a bad long weekend and pick up some steam through the rest of this month and next – or whether a not-so-easy slate between now and New Year's will put the Gophers on the path toward the basement.
