Had no idea about the assistant maltreatment.
Speaking as a longtime assistant ... young Mr Pitino would get a private come-to-jeeeeezus meeting after any of that crap.
As was said ... tells you what kind of a man he is.


Last game I went to, he was keeping a running tally of how many points the other team scored on a particular action, and then turning and yelling it to the assistant in charge of the scouting report (I think it was Young). "TWO!!!!" Later, "FOUR!!!!" It eventually got up to 10 or 12. The Hurt dad was commenting on how ridiculous and obnoxious it was, too. (A great sign for RP nabbing the best in-state recruit MN has produced in the last decade, huh? Yeah, don't get your hopes up.)

He also makes snide comments about his players loud enough for the fans behind the bench to hear. Some of them are pretty funny, but you just don't see that kind of stuff from the great ones.


Still a pretty young coach that has some learning to do. How you react when you are losing/struggling indicates a lot about a coach....he seemed to take it in stride 2 years ago and things seemed to change last year....this year the coaching was horrible.

I have seen our backup center (Konate) look like he didn't touch a basketball at all the last two offseasons and make plays like he hadn't played enough organized basketball and by the last couple games he looked pretty good each of the last two years. I can't put my finger on that one. Tough thing in college is kids don't have to leave once you give them a scholarship and were misreads.


Young guy or not, he has the sharp tongue like his father, and am sure he was hammered on like this.
No way is he changing this. Am sure it's been his MO since starting.

Obviously hasn't been taken to the woodshed enough.
He's not physically imposing enough to talk shit to grown men.
Has been taught to think money and title allow for that.
He's wrong. Amazed it hasn't sorted itself out by now.

Jeter won't let him talk to him like that. Young was hard pressed for a job when Pitino brought him to Florida Atlantic and the U of MN (I think he has a serious Marijuana distribution felony on his record), probably close to the same for Johnson minus the legal troubles in the past. Pitino needs Jeter.

Pitino will learn quickly....verbally abusing employees is not something you want in the HR folder.

Young and Johnson have been huge on the recruiting front. But I don't know about the coaching. I think Jeter is an upgrade, and I hope Pitino finds another one. We're all pulling in the same direction here.


I've always thought Young was here more for his East Coast recruiting than what he does as a bench coach. While losing that hurts, I believe Jeter has a pretty stellar recruiting rep in the MidWest.


Agreed on both fronts. Does Minnesota really want to live off East Coast recruits trying to fit into a B1G style? The results have been pretty uneven. I'll take Jeter's Midwest (especially Wisconsin) connections and coaching resume -- especially if we pick up a guy to replace Ben with deep connections in Minnesota.

And who knows. Maybe he's fantastic to them behind closed doors and they put up with a little public shaming (I wouldn't call it verbal abuse) at the games. But it's a poor reflection on him and most importantly on the program.

STrib: Grad transfer Brock Stull could be the missing piece for the Gophers

Brock Stull had a lot of options to play at the Power Five level for his senior year, but he chose to follow the path of a former teammate from Wisconsin-Milwaukee to Minnesota.

Stull's commitment Tuesday to play for the Gophers could be the missing piece for helping them bounce back from a 15-17 season. Two seasons ago, former UW-Milwaukee guard Akeem Springs' impact in one season with the Gophers led to the first NCAA tournament under Richard Pitino.

Stull, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard, averaged 13.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and shot 37.9 percent from three-point range for the Panthers as a junior last season. As a graduate transfer like Springs, Stull can play immediately but has only one year to make his presence felt.

Stull said getting to play in the Big Ten was “very special” for him having grown up in Illinois.

The Rockford, Ill. native made his decision while visiting the U campus Tuesday. Stull, who received interest from Xavier, Virginia, North Carolina State and Butler, gets to play again for his former Milwaukee coach Rob Jeter, one of Minnesota's new assistants.

“Being a Midwest kid, it’s all you want to do and for a really good team,” Stull told the Star Tribune about being in the Big Ten. “(It was) nice to get to spend time with those guys and get reunited with Jeter.”

Had a chance to see the new Barn floor, and count me as a fan. Has a barn wood feel. First change to the court since the 1960s, per a #Gophers official. Video on @KSTP at 6:50 and 10:20.

So Doogie says it's the first change to the court since the 1960's but the article has a picture from 1973 in which the court looked completely different. Hmmm.

At a first glance when I saw the article on Strib online, I thought it was an ice rink. It wasn't until I clicked on the story and got the bigger picture (see what I did there?) that I realized it was Williams Arena. Looks pretty cool I'd say. I'm more interested in what the players think. Does a lighter court affect their play? In some ways I think it could, just based on lighting and placement of graphics, etc.

The new one is better and anyone who doesn't agree with me is stupid.

My concern is the loss of the maroon sidelines. My guess is they were a visual cue to players getting close to the edge.

I wonder if we'll see more players "leave the court"?

I heard Arnie Carlson's assessment of the upcoming season. He thinks we'll be a special team if Washington is a competent point guard. He loves our frontcourt players and would put them up against any team in the nation.

Nice to have a good rim protector though.

We're not (or haven't been) a very good shooting team. Lynch balanced the scales by protecting the paint to keep the opponents score down.

I just don't see us winning many games trying to outscore the opponent

Otero and Curry both can play center...I also read that Matz Stockman is back?
