Wow. Paul will be on the bench to start the game. Huh.

Interesting time to switch things up in a dire, must-win situation...

Well, maybe he will decide to play some defense when he enters the game. Hopefully he understands and this lights a fire for him...

WOW Groce has the testicular fortitude Weber never had. May work out may not, but at least he's not doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

We need to give Wisconsin an old fashioned Big Ten beat down.

Illinois: 69
Wisky: 54

Please. Just win. I don't care by what score. Just win and let me hold on to hope for a while longer. This is the pivotal game of the season to this point. Lose this and we're NIT-bound.

does anyone really doubt that after this season and the next that JG won't help 3-4 other players transfer out so he can bring in his kids.. He isn't afraid to make changes.. so it that now BP and TG both not starting? He is not going to let any quit. If you don't wanna play hard and win you won't play

Good to see Paul on the pine. Maybe it will wake him up.

Got to get some offense going here now.

Anyone else think the Orange Krush looks pathetic? Almost as bad as the donors that sit in Section A compared to what it used to be
