    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Also, add on top of that the amount of time to manufacture and distribute the vaccines to the world population. I am no expert either, but I would imagine once it IS approved and vaccines start rolling out, it's not healthy college athletes who will be given top priority. I love college sports...

    BTN 3/19

    BTN keeps showing the date of the game was March 26th 2006... You would hope BTN would at least have the right year!

    No fans at NCAA Tournament, B1G Tournament

    I remember watching that 2015 White Sox game against the Orioles where no fans were allowed in. THAT was weird... but as a White Sox Fan, I'm used to watching my team play in front of very few fans. Watching a basketball game with no fans allowed in is going to be a LOT stranger than that.

    Illinois vs Nebraska in Dublin, Ireland (Aug. 28th, 2021)

    Article yesterday in the Lincoln newspaper about the game. Not shocking but Nebraska outpacing Illinois in sales I guess: I found this part pretty interesting too: Here is the whole article

    Iowa 19, Illinois 10 POSTGAME

    I didn't actually get to watch the game (but had it on at a charity chili cook off that I was participating in, so I was keeping an eye on it), but yes... I like this team's chances too. Even though the Illini LOST the turnover battle in this game... Iowa found the end zone only ONCE this game...

    Illinois 37, Michigan State 34 POSTGAME

    Wow. Just wow. My first born child is arriving in about a month. Wife and I were in all day birthing and baby class thing all day today. Periodically glanced at the score and thought, "Well, I figured it might be ugly." Made it home in time to watch the 4th quarter. Unreal comeback. So...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Rutgers, Saturday, November 2nd, 2:30pm CT, BTN

    That was my junior year and I was at that game. I remember thinking what a shame it was that the Illini were going to clinch a B1G title in front of so few people. I don't remember for certain when it changed, but I'm almost positive we didn't get the entire week of Thanksgiving off... but...

    Michigan 42, Illinois 25 POSTGAME

    Unless it's a situation where every single seat is truly occupied I'm guessing they stay pretty silent on actual gate count. Here in Nebraska the Husker's coveted "sellout" streak dating back to the 60s isn't even true gate count as there are usually empty seats up in the upper sections of the...

    Pregame: Illinois at Minnesota, Saturday, October 5th, 2:30pm CT, BTN

    705 was the Michigan State game in 2005. I could have sworn it was Penn State that year. I remember watching that Penn State game and hoping their running back wasn't going to beat Red Grange's 5 touchdown performance against Michigan for what was considered the greatest performance in...

    Pregame: Illinois at Nebraska, Monday, January 15th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Oh really? Thought Weber was still on our sidelines. I've gone to each of the Nebraska/Illinois football games in Lincoln since they joined the B1G. I'm no stranger to being surrounded by annoying people in red. Monday evening games just aren't convenient for me though. :chief:

    Pregame: Illinois at Nebraska, Monday, January 15th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    I thought about driving up the road a half hour to see this one... but then I remembered how the last time I did that Nebraska crushed Illinois by 20 something in Weber's final season. That sucked. :chief:

    War Chant has been retired

    But that's how a business is. If you aren't the main man in charge of the entire company and you publicly denounce the decisions made by your superiors... that isn't good for you. It also makes your entire company look bad. He addressed the situation and, in a level headed manner, revealed...

    2017 Masters

    Last I saw DJ was cautiously optimistic and will play. Pieters certainly has been an impressive player thus far in his professional career. :chief:
