I don't know if this is a positive season opening omen, but last night i had an overnight in Boise, ID and our hotel van from the airport pulled up behind an SUV that had Idaho plates... "ILL1NI"! I asked the van driver to honk at them lol.
One of my flight attendants said "that doesn't say 'Illini'...that's the number 1 not an I". I said "It's an "I" and it's a "1". The "I" is "1" and the "1" is "I".

I'm so profound!

Go ILL1NI!

Streaming the volleyball game on btn plus right now to my chromecast. Really good quality. I am cautiously optimistic.

A tip for those new to btn plus...mute the sound and listen to the game on tunein radio.
you can pause which ever is ahead and sync the sound to the video.

You know you're old when you remember covering Frank Williams' 1st Illini game-- now you are covering his son's 1st Illini game! D'Monte!

I remember Frank's debut: watch this guy, I told everyone, he's got Jordan-like moves. So glad sonny boy is an Illini. He sure does look like his dad. I think he's going to be a great one.

Trying to think of a good reason not to throw $9.95 at watching 5 games.
It is what it is. Protesting on principle won't change a thing, and you've all wasted more money on less.

I wanna watch!
