    From the article: and Not saying that his coach is wrong, but that was pretty funny to me.

    Wow, there would be No Limit to what we could do if we landed this kid.

    NCAA Tournament Canceled

    At first I wasn't sure why they didn't just postpone it until like May or something, then I realized that the players had to, I mean the students had, uh, classes, the players, uh, finals... Sorry, couldn't get that out with a straight face.

    No fans at NCAA Tournament, B1G Tournament

    Consider the consequences of keeping everyone home and being wrong about it vs. going on as usual and being wrong about it. Even in hindsight, what will have mattered is making the right decision based on what we know today.

    Might as well mic up the coaches again.

    Illinois 78, Iowa 76 POSTGAME

    I would like to add that his "HOLD ME BACK, BRO" performance in Iowa City with about 30 friendlies between him and whoever he was yelling at qualifies as Grade-A Poltroonery.

    Illinois 67, Indiana 66 POSTGAME

    What BillyBob said. Dude just took a step or two forward, no big deal, but the timing was perfect to get him in frame. (I think the video of the play posted by the official UIMBB account cuts those two guys in, lol.)

    Archie demanding that replay be used to make the Hue Hollins call on that missed three still has me giggling. Also, the final scrum with those two fools from Carmel coming on the court to yell at the refs was like some sort of renaissance painting. I love watching Hoosiers melt down.

    Settles signed a four-year contract six years ago.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Indiana, Sunday, March 1st, 1:00pm CT, BTN

    IU would be in some trouble if we knock them off. They’ve won two (2) road games this year (Minny and Nebraska) and would have to win out to get to 10-10. So, uh, let’s knock them off.

    There are a lot of things to hate Rick Pitino for, but for some reason I have it in my head that his rise to prominence is why coaches no longer wear flammable team-colored jackets anymore. It wasn't just Lou who wore them, it was pretty much everyone, and it was hilarious.

    I thought it was nice that his comment to Ayo in the handshake line was "I'm glad you're healthy," especially after Ayo had basically singlehandedly buried his team. He's just a coach, and coaches sometimes do coach things like work the refs. If you guys need your heel fix, Fran comes to town...

    Even if your top priority was finding a school where you could play through it?

    If he flies to Urbana in a hot air balloon maybe he can stay under the radar...
