Upset Indiana? We're saying there's ... a chance

Can the Gophers beat Indiana? That's a dumb question:

Going into tonight's game at Williams Arena, Minnesota is a 6-point underdog. Six points? To the No. 1 team in the country which dominated Monday's Associated Press Top 25 poll?

There can only be one explanation. According to the FromTheBarn blog: "The folks in Las Vegas don't have access to the Big Ten Network."

Actually, there is a five-point formula the Gophers can utilize to upset Indiana. Star Tribune writer Michael Rand says it starts with "shoot lights-out."

Minnesota may have been outscored by 47 points in its latest two losses (Iowa and Ohio State), but the Golden Gophers have defeated top-ranked teams before. Since 1951, Minnesota is 3-8 in such games at the Barn.

The latest win? 1989, against then-number-one Illinois.

So, we're telling you there's ... a chance.

And if it happens, a bit of advice from the Be careful rushing the court on Williams Arena's raised floor.
