Basketball scandal[edit]

I remember that about 5 years ago, there was a minor scandal at Minnesota over tutors writing term paperew) and don't really know how common or notable this is (I also remember Georgia's "Theory of Basketball" class) and 2, I don't remember all the details. Anyone want to take a stab at it or offer a compelling reason not to do it? Stilgar135

If you do decide to write about the scandal, i would start a new article and you can link it from this one. But i wouldnt write anything about it in this article, per say.--Geppy 06:37, 17 March 2006 (UTC)
Of course it would be fine to add all info related to the scandal into a own chapter of the article! A separate article should be developed as soon as this aspect's size gets to dominating... btw. where is the connection with Harvey Mackay?--Nemissimo 12:35, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

National Titles[edit]

Should the swimming titles go under the national titles section?--Geppy 06:37, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

We could create a Big Ten Title section and WCHA title section for all the sports. Only a NCCA or some sort of national tournment title should be listed under national titles and of course the mythical national football titles. Smith03 18:10, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Removed Bowl game victories from national titles section, a Micron PC Bowl win should not be mentioned in a list of the schools national championship.

It is factual information can make a title such as bowl wins or bowl apperances. Smith03 18:49, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

It may be facutal information, but none of those bowl wins were a national championship, which is what the heading is.

then please make a new heading such as bowl games or bowl victories don't just delete factual information Smith03 16:45, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

The Barnyard[edit]

Hi. I've been putting together pages for each of the Big Ten's basketball student sections and was wondering if someone would be interested in expanding and maintaining that of the Barnyard. Thanks! --BroadSt Bully 14:14, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Mens Basketball[edit]

Editted to reflect the official NCAA history, in which Minnesota is 0-0 with no postseason appearances or conference titles from the 1993-1994 season to the 1998-1999 season.

1998 NIT Championship were vacated due to NCAA sanctions[edit]

I don't know but would the NCAA have the power to vacate the NIT. I realise recently the NCAA took over the NIT but at the time of the sanctions the NIT was a seprate thing Smith03 00:40, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

From the NCAA: "Regarding the 1994, 1995 and 1997 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournaments, and the 1996 and 1998 National Invitational Tournaments (NIT), and pursuant to NCAA Bylaw, the university will vacate its team record as well as the individual records of any student-athlete who engaged in academic fraud as set forth in this report." I will update the article to include the above reference.Gopherbone 00:57, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Merge suggestion[edit]

The other page should be merged with this one or perhaps split off as another article if there is enough detail/notability about Jim Wacker's tenure to ensure it is notable by itself.. Incidentally, I would say that the title should be "Minnesota Golden Gophers under Jim Wacker," since "football" is redundant. --Edwin Herdman 00:18, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Well if you are going merge Minnesota Golden Gophers football under Jim Wacker it probably should be merge with this instead Minnesota Golden Gophers football Smith03 02:28, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Oh, oops. Great suggestion! Making a change. (For some reason your link won't work unless I put underlines in it, sigh). (UTC)


While the appearance were "vacated", one cannot simply remove them from the list of appearances. I will be adding them in to the list of appearances and note they were forfeited. The reason I'm doing this is because I was searching for this info and the footnote indicating vacation was poorly defined. -- TRTX T / C 01:20, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Minor fact checking point[edit]

I use Wikipedia to write trivia questions, so I end up inadvertently fact-checking pages against each other. The Minnesota sports page: claims that the school has won 6 national football championships, while the Golden Gophers page: claims 7.

Just thought I would point this out so that someone can fix it! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:05, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
