    Will this Special K help treat the Illini basketball induced depression I have been suffering from?

    Pregame: Illinois vs Northwestern, Wednesday, March 13th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Got a $6 ticket through Stubhub yesterday. With fees & taxes I probably spent $14. There will be a seat number on the ticket but supposedly I can sit anywhere. Went to the Ohio State vs Illini game at the United Center (yes I was the one). Hoping more people show up for this one.

    Indiana 92, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    Don’t know much about basketball but that Indiana kid looked really good to me. How many minutes did he play? He never looked tired.

    After watching that point guard for Indiana make all those crazy accurate passes under duress, I’d hate to think what sort of assist numbers he’d have had without being harassed by Illinois’ guards.

    This whole Peter in Peter out thing sounds kind of naughty to me. Are these FWBs you are referring to?

    I found your comment mean spirited, puerile and funny all at the same time.

    Pregame: Illinois at Northwestern/Tim Beckman/Coaching Carousel: Saturday, November 29th, 11:00am CT, ESPNU

    At the start of the season, the over/under on the number of wins for the Illinois Football Team was 4.5. Obviously this was before they lost their starting quarterback and a couple offensive linemen. If the odds makers were correct the team has already overachieved. Sorry if the wins weren't...

    If you check back I think most of the stories about him, excluding magazine cover articles, were sort of negative. He was not considered to be playing up to his perceived level either because he had been injured in the Summer or because he was out of shape.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2013-March 2014)

    On the subject of over-hyped Simeon players. Pretty sure Jabari Parker underwhelmed his whole senior year and, get this, Derrick Rose couldn't even manage a field goal in the IHSA state championship game his senior year. Can't imagine how much second guessing that must have caused at Duke and...

    Illinois 61, UNLV 59 POSTGAME

    Woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and was pleasantly surprised to see I was still smiling as a result of last night's game. I see that Tracy Abrams is taking some grief on the board. What I saw out there was a 'junk yard dog' who played tenaciously for 28 minutes without fouling...

    I swear DJ Richardson came to college with the same resume: athletic, lock down defender and a slasher on offense. I think he did OK.
