The 2012 Big Ten Tournament is in its second day and, a bit surprisingly, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are still in action even without their top two big men in Trevor Mbakwe and Ralph Sampson III. The former has been out for most of the season, unfortunately, but he hasn't lost his sense of humor.
Mbakwe took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to do his version of the starting lineups. He doesn't make it clear, but it seems like he used the *Will Ferrell voice* while typing up the following tweets.
