I'm not able to make it to the game today, but Coach Henson had the Orange Krush organizers over to his house for an early pre-game meal which was a great time! Lou and Mary are wonderful people, it was great to get to talk sports with one of the great coaches in Illini history.

I assume you mean chat. Haven't done one since Maui. Don't want to break the lucky streak.

A big (> 10 point win) would help legitimize ILL it seems more so than our Butler or GU victory in the eyes of the sports writers

Here's hoping we get a big W!

I'm right there with you. It's also a key game on watchespn. If I can't watch the game I think I'll head to Legends or something and watch.
