Nice.

Though I have to admit that I still eat at Monical's when I get back to CU. Guess it holds a place in my heart since I grew up with it.
If you're ever in Syracuse, Nebraska, try the Breadeaux Pizza there. Best I've ever eaten.

I'm a Lou's pizza guy myself. But when I'm in the paign I'm fine with Papa dels and Monicals pizza which I really enjoy even if it's not a prestigious chain.

These IlliniProductions videos are getting better and better. Could improve on the music a bit, but keep these highlights coming!

I hate to tell the moderator what to do, but Dan can you please post these highlight videos somewhere other than a pizza thread?

Illinois is really getting better about kicking it out when they're deep in the lane. I'd still like to see the guards do it more often, but they're definitely improving.

Awesome video, as always.

And I love how Coach Groce gives Mclauren a hug at one point in the game. He's going to be a great coach.

I've also noticed how Griffey appears to look after Groce when he is angry at a referee and often puts his hand on his back or arm as he goes by or puts his arm around him after a win. It makes me think they think of him as a father figure and I like it. I also like that even though that appears to be the relationship, it still didn't stop Groce from reducing his minutes when he wasn't playing as well. It certainly looks like things are heading in the right direction.

Have you tried the pizza at PI in St. Louis? They have two locations. It's really great pizza! One thing we really like about them is they pride themselves on NOT using that stuff that is ubiquitous in St. Louis that is called provel. That is bad stuff. PI pizza staff wore t-shirts with the word "provel" and the red circle and the red diagonal line through it, as in "no provel". Anyway, PI has great pizza and I wish we lived close enough to have it more then once or twice a year!

They actually have 4 locations now. Central West End, The Loop, Kirkwood, and they opened a location downtown next to America's Center.

I agree 100%. It appears as though the players really like and respect coach Groce, and he appears to really care about his players.

Just wait until the players that he recruits are seniors, they'll all probably have a great relationship.

That really struck me. DJ was shedding some tears in the lockerroom knowing how big that win was and it really meshes with the observations by some that DJ has begun taking on a leader-of-the-team attitude that has been sorely needed. Special moment right there.

I wouldn't call it awful, but...it doesn't compare to Chicago, that's for sure. Just don't think of Imo's or Cecil Whitakers as actual pizza, but instead, a giant pizza flavored cracker!

I enjoy Pi, and The Good Pie, but Papa Del's is far better, and the couple of times I've had pizza in Chicago (don't recall where) was phenomenal.

Pizza Hut Supreme Pan pizza is perfectly delicious pizza.

A really excellent pizza can be had at Cottage Inn, the original location, in Ann Arbor, Michigan - been there since 1930-something. Delicious, with their Greek salad and Apple Mountain dessert. So good.

It's all about Monicals pizza in central Illinois and Rocky Rococo in southern Wisconsin. Mmm!

I know I am late to the pizza discussion, but I have to agree. Monical's pizza is the best thin crust I have had. It is so surprising for a chain.
