Good morning, folks. I'm allowed to call it morning because I finished work and got to bed somewhere around 2:30 am this morning. But I will shake off all of my fatigue and be here for you at noon to answer your every question on Gophers basketball (and maybe a couple on Bigfoot too).

Between Trevor Mbakwe's recent resurgence and the frontcourt controversy, the decision of coach Tubby Smith not to redshirt Wally Ellenson, the development of the starting five and the Big Ten schedule ahead, there's plenty to discuss. So drop your lunch plans and spend an hour with me talkin' Gophers hoops.
