Governor Tim Walz decided to sandbag in Hastings and watch a high school tournament game instead of attending tonight’s (645pm tipoff) second-round N-C-A-A matchup in Des Moines featuring the U-of-M Gophers versus Michigan State. Walz says he did talk with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “I do not want to wear that Michigan State shirt,” Walz says, “but I will, I will, if that happens — which I don’t think it will. I think the Gophers by four.”
The maroon-and-gold are looking for another upset after beating Louisville in Thursday’s opening round.
