Minnesota star Trevor Mbakwe has been in the news quite a bit lately, primarily for his court hearing last month. While Mbakwe avoided possible jail time, it wasn't exactly a fall highlight for the Golden Gophers.

With just one week until the start of the 2012-13 season, Mbakwe could make headlines again. Late Saturday night/early Sunday morning, the potential All-American big man took to Twitter to show how confident he is in the Gophers this season.
