Even though it is annoying, I never get too worked up about it. It is not that big of a deal to follow the gametracker and just watch the game tomorrow.

Will the audio of this game be streamed ? I know one of the earlier games had streamed audio. I don't understand the thinking on not allowing these games to be streamed on the audio side so if you are traveling, bowling etc you can listen to the game ??

The Illini Radio stream of all games this season is available thru the $9.95/month plan- http://www.fightingillini.com/allaccess/

(That's the same plan/site where the live video is available tonight.)

BTN2Go, free if your service provider gets it, allows you to watch BTN (the TV channel) from you internet connection, iPad, iPhone, or Android smartphone.

Tonight's game is on the Big Ten Digital Network, the Big Ten's pay online service (different from BTN2Go). The pay BTDN has a team's radio broadcast streams, press conferences, most of the exhibition game videos and at least 1 non-conference game video stream.

It's confusing.

This is the last Illini game on the BTDN this season, so if you subscribed just for the Illini men's basketball games, don't forget to cancel tomorrow.

Yes, BTN2Go is far superior to btn.com. In fact I saw Tyler hit the three against GW on my iphone while shopping with the family.

Maybe Illini Nation should throw a !!!!! fit like the Hoosier fans did a few weeks ago.
After all, we're the #13.5 team in the country!
How dare the BTN disrespect us like that!


Not really.
Illini fans are better than that.
Personally, I've got no problem recording the game and watching it a day late.
Western Carolina (although it is not really a state -- thanks to mattcoldagelli for pointing that out early on) should be one of the bigger cupcakes on this year's schedule.
I don't look for there to be much suspense.

You can actually cancel right now and the subscription will still remain active through the entire 30 day period.

HQ forecast: Illinois 77, Western Carolina 63

The record doesn't indicate so, but Western Carolina isn't a bad team. The Catamounts return seven players from a team that lost to Davidson in double overtime in the Southern Conference championship game with a berth in the NCAA tournament at stake. The Illinois guards will have their hands full with Trey Sumler and the post players with big man Tawaski King. "They're going to be tough, they're physical, very blue collar," Groce said. "They're gonna screen you, they're gonna cut hard."

Did Comcast come to an agreement with the BTN? Last time I tried to see a football (UGH) game not aired live I could not see it since Comcast & BIG did not have an agreement. I live out east so no multiple BTN stations.

BTN2Go is not available on Comcast. Hope that gets resolved soon.

Illini refreshed, ready to get back to work

With a whirlwind schedule that included a trip to Hawaii, four games in six days and eight games total in the first 2 1/2 weeks of the season, Illinois needed a break.

The Illini (8-0) got it with five days off, and now they hope Western Carolina (3-5) serves as another opportunity to catch their breath. After Tuesday's game at Assembly Hall, they will travel west again to take on Gonzaga on Saturday in Spokane, Wash.

"We had a pretty rigorous schedule," coach John Groce said. "No question (we needed a break). It allowed them to get their minds and bodies right."

Murphy's on green street (north end of campus) is popular, a bar with good burgers.
