Embattled Weber takes blame

Robbie Hummel and Lewis Jackson willed Purdue to a 67-62 win that could be the dagger in the Illini's season. Illinois has lost seven of eight and is on pace to miss the NCAA tournament for the third time in five years.

Weber summed it up -- not just Wednesday night, but the majority of the six seasons A.D. -- with this: "You're trying to please everyone instead of pleasing yourself. That's my fault in hindsight."
