Minnesota has vastly underperformed versus their talent this year, but they may be poised for a tourney run nonetheless. As an 11 seed, they embarrassed 6 seed UCLA.
This is the Gophers' first tourney since 2010. Their last tournament appearance in which they didn't lose the first game was 1997, where they went to the Final Four and lost to Kentucky in the national semifinal.
The Gophers will next get the Gators of Florida. Hey, Tubby, if you want to make it up to me for leaving Georgia way back when, you can do it by knocking off Florida.
By the way, I did pick this upset.
