In perhaps the season's biggest upset, Minnesota -- a team that was previously winless in Big Ten play -- beat No. 6 Maryland on Thursday night. That, obviously, prompted reactions from across the college basketball Twittersphere.
Here is a sample of what is being said after the 68-63 Gopher victory.
Maryland falling to Minnesota would be right up there with Dayton/La Salle regarding biggest head-scratching loss this season.

In the last two minutes, Melo Trimble has an airball and two turnovers. So much for being Mr. Clutch.

College basketball is permanently on LSD—and I think it just dropped acid.

I think Maryland can win a national title, but at some point people are actually going to start looking at their resume and say top 10??

Maryland fans: On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you trust your team right now?

With the loss, Maryland gives up any ground in the Big Ten race that it had regained after Penn State upset Iowa on Wednesday night. They are now 10-4 in conference play with four games remaining -- two of which come on the road at Purdue and at Indiana.
