Sorry if has discussed, since Underwood got hired, will he be coaching the team for the rest of the NIT or will Walker continue to be the head coach?

I want us to be able to go into Normal and take care of business, but I wouldn't really mind if our boys got a brief trip to Disney World :P

Walker is coaching until the end. Underwood will be around, but not anywhere near the bench.

Also of note here in the pregame ... the #Illini are running back the gray/silver alternates from last week's first round win vs. Valpo.

Tonight's officials: Brent Hampton, Randy Heimerman and Alfred Smith. I'll be honest. Not sure I've heard of any of them. #Illini

Guess ISU didn't want to play us.

Camera cuts away as people start throwing trash onto the court at ISU. Crazy ending.

I think that should've been a no-call.

Questionable call but what a whiny fanbase. They were crying all game.

What a joke. Talking about the hire on the pregame and he brings up Cuonzo Martin as a reason he wasn't sold on it. Thought he'd be better. What a terrible platform to voice your disappointment on
