My friends drank it in college. 7&7 is still understood as a drink.

Lower. Winning vs Indiana's odds were sitting near that IIRC.

Let's handle business. Run them off the court. Keep hitting them with fresh bodies. These guys have played close the last two games. Let's not underestimate them.

Didn't Groce say in the presser that Tracy graded out at an A on the defensive end at NW? Tough starting rotation to crack.

Probably my favorite drink going for me currently now. I just hate that without even trying very hard, before I know it....the bottle of Seagrams is empty. Stuff really turns me into a drunk in no time at all.

Ok......back to Illini BB!!!!!!!

He did but all 4 guards graded out as A's as well so because of that he is keeping the same lineup because none of them did anything to drop out of it this game.

How many times have the seniors & JoeB beaten PSU?
I'm guessing not too many times.
Doubt they will be underestimated
