The Not-So-Big Games Feb. 10--Gophers Scrambled

The Minnesota Gopher men and women both laid an egg today, and Illinois cheerfully scrambled 'em both. That makes a dozen extra large eggs laid by the 2 teams in the past month--6 apiece in their last 8 games--leaving a pair of once promising seasons in a scramble, er, shambles.

The women, once 13-4, are now 4-7 in the Big 10, 2-6 in their last 8 games, and 15-10 overall.

The men, once 15-1, are now 5-6 in the Big 10, 2-6 in their last 8 games, and 17-7 overall.

Look at their remaining schedules and the way they've been playing, you'd have to agree that an NCAA tournament bid seems unlikely, not only for the women but even for the once #8 rated men.

Who would have thought that Norwood Teague' 1st big coaching challenges would not include football?

I can't think of a player or coach of the day, can you?
