Dan, did you ever mention what happened to the chats for games? I thought that was ideal for realtime discussion with a larger audience over a short window. I also liked how the platform you used allowed tweets from the key Illini personalities & media.

Any chance we can re-introduce the chats? If they cost money for the site to leverage the chat platform maybe we can have a special funding drive?

Either way keep building the community....it's coming along strong.

Watching on my laptop. Hopefully I'll be able to split time between the game and this thread.

Don't know if it was posted but Lunardi has us at a #4 seed in this week's bracket. Not showing the #10 ranked Fighting Illini the proper love

Dan is keeping with the superstition that the Illini are 10-0 without the chat, just the game thread, I think. As much as I enjoy the live chat, too, I'm all for no chat if it leads to us staying undefeated. Go Illini, beat these Spartans!

He hasn't responded but that has to be the deal. I hate not having the chats but I'll ride it out until we lose a game!

Video quality from ESPN 3 is looking horrible. What is this, the 1990s?
