    Converse All-Stars? I wish. Those were too expensive. I usually either had Keds or P.F. Flyers.

    Does Peters not run because he can't, or because he wasn't asked to? Dunno. Just asking.

    In Their Honor

    There are people who want to make this happen. Why didn't it get any press? I guess if there were any media at the trustees meeting, they didn't consider it worth reporting. So basically it's up to us to share it as much as possible, and take whatever other actions you think should be taken...

    In Their Honor

    In Their Honor

    No otters, no eagles. No lions, tigers or bears. And alas, no longer any Chief Illiniwek as we have known him. But the next step is here, In Their Honor! It's a beginning. In Their Honor!

    Illinois has instability in its program? Perhaps. But how is Illinois any different than anywhere else. We're itching for transfers. Well, where do they come from? Programs with instability? That said, Tommy Stevens. They're in mild panic in Pennsylvania, or at least the fans are. Franklin...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Indiana, Thursday, March 7th, 7:00pm CT, FS1

    Northwestern, the only private school in the B1G and full of self-important twits from northern Illinois...and as someone from small city downstate, they just annoy me. I don’t know if you call it a rivalry, but we should never lose to Northwestern.

    Penn State 83, Illinois 76 POSTGAME
