Former Gopher recruit Nathen Garth has signed on with Steve Alford and the New Mexico Lobos.
This lends credence to the rumor that Tubby and company decided Garth was not really a Big Ten caliber guard. New Mexico should be at the top of the Mountain West Conference under Alford in the future, and, in fact, are my pick to win it this year, but the MWC is not anywhere near the level of the Big Ten. Good luck to Garth in the coming seasons.
One other little recruiting tidbit is that's it's being reported that the Gophers are in the lead for SG Devoe Joseph, who is now my most wanted recruit for 2008. A class of Joseph/Carter/Sampson/Iverson would be awesome. I just don't know what Tubby's planning for point guard - maybe Nolen's better than I'm expecting.
Also, remember when Tara Reid was hot?
