    Indiana 92, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    5-2 in the Big Ten with a healthy Rob Phinisee both losses to ranked teams. Our fanbase is pretty resigned to knowing we at minimum have to get to 18 wins. Beat Rutgers on Sunday then beat OSU on Thursday. Luckily a team that is struggling. With either a quad 1 win or loss against a Michigan...

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

    I posted that I saw a foundation being built after the last IU/Illinois game not sure if anybody agreed or not. Very crazy how the two teams have gone since then. That being said if I were you guys I would be cautious about the refs. I don’t trust Delaney and very curious if he’s scheming to...

    Indiana 73, Illinois 65 POSTGAME

    Very impressed by Illinois tonight. This style of D has given the Hoosiers fits all year. Problem was made worse since our starting PG wasn’t cleared to play as was expected. If every team was starting a Devonte Green you guys would have a much better record. Illinois won the first 12 minutes...

    Pregame: Illinois at Indiana, Thursday, January 3rd, 6:00pm CT, FS1

    IU fans agree that Langford is being under utilized hard to believe since he’s our leader scorer. Part of the reason is his struggles from the 3 point line. His ability to draw fouls is incredible though. Morgan is a beast as well. But isn’t our leading scorer. That being said IU has shown a...

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    There were a handful that were opposed to the hire from Day 1. Boy how right were they. As an impartial observer i would be very concerned. The foundation for the future should already be in place but i am not seeing it. Can BU right the ship absolutely but its getting harder by the day. I...

    Speaking as an IU fan us interwebz coaches were right that Crean wasnt the guy for 4-6 years.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Indiana, Wednesday, January 24th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Not sure I can be unbias after the game tomorrow so I thought I would come here now and wish you guys luck. I go back and fourth on which team is going to win. Currently leaning towards Illinois. Illinois is desperate for a win and got a confidence boost after running with MSU for a time...

    Don't expect too much from Martin, if you'll notice recruiting dipped considerably when he can on IUs staff.

    Early Projection for Next Season

    Seems silly to do before recruiting is done, staffs are assembled and NBA departures occur. Etc. Purdue I think is too high. Iowa too high. Indiana and Illinois too low. The majority of their problems were not talent they were coaching issues sure Miller and Underwood will need a few years to...

    I think the IU fan base would welcome Geoce here. I hope he considers doing it even for a year while he waits for the right job. Frankly I don't think it's a coincidence OSU started a slow decline when he left. Would love Groce to help Archie recruit for a season get some momentum building.

    Bennett. He's built 2 teams with top 24 offense and defenses. The magic stat to win it all. And won 2 conference championships and a conference tourney.

    I'm fairly certain you have to have coaching experience to be a proven winner.

    Coaching Carousel

    Glass promised us a proven winner. Instead we got a guy with potential. That's why I'm upset I have spent my entire adult life giving IU coaches time. I'm tired of the projects and the rebuilding. In the Last 2 years Glass has replaced our Baseball, Football and Basketball coaches. They had...
