Are the people filing in yet? How does the crowd seem? We need the Hall packed with Orange.

I've only heard of one of these refs, which is probably a good sign.

I like Tyler coming off the bench. Seems to be a more comfortable role for him.

Don't forget about Higgins. Although that may just be me not liking him by proxy. I don't know of a single Wichita State or KU fan around here that doesn't despise him.

Sanzere is brutal. Worse than Valentine and Hightower.

I hate saying it, but I think we've all thought about it that this game has all the makings of a classic letdown game. Playing at home, coming off two big wins, playing a team that we should beat, but one that has also owned us as of late.

BUT, having said that, I'm feeling a weird sense of calm going into this game, just like I was going into the Minny game. Just seeing the guys having as much fun as they are, and playing with as much confidence as they are is really taking a lot of the worrying out of it for me. Don't misinterpret that as overconfidence, just an odd sense of calm, and it's been a long time since I've felt that way before games.

And Zoggle, if you're here, I'm gonna go ahead and stay away from here starting now. Well, except for maybe an occasional post during halftime or a media timeout

GO ILLINI!!!
