Coaches

It’s kind of strange, considering both coaches are potentially in the same situation: heading to the tournament even as the seat underneath them significantly warms up. The state of Howland’s job security — or the lack of it — has gotten more publicity than Tubby Smith’s, and maybe that’s because his seat is hotter. But at this point, it might be so impending and so public, that Howland is actually looser. Hey, the more nerve-racking scenario is often the unknown. What’s more, Howland has had six days to figure out how to regroup his ailing team and find a new combination, while Smith — who already has stated the Gophers will remain status quo — isn’t quite sure which formula he’s preparing to face. Minnesota already has seemed underprepared at points this season, even when Smith did know what the opponent was going to bring.

Edge: UCLA

 

PREDICTION: Gophers 65, UCLA 61
