    Illini Football 2019

    Usually in these cases there is an MRI done within a day or two. It just doesn't have to be done emergently because it won't change what needs to be done. In my experience, after the trainers/doctors evaluate the player it's usually up to the player what they want to do. There's no inherent...

    While this is true in some sense, physical exam can give you a clear indication of a torn acl, MCL/LCL injuries. That's kind of the key here. Whether he's out a few weeks or a year.

    There's not really a benefit of having an MRI in the stadium. MRI's cost millions, need to be staffed full time (in case of emergent need), and are easy enough to get at a hospital. Xrays are different though and many teams have xray capability within stadium.

    Not much advantage to MRI right away if exam is pretty clear cut. If it's a torn ACL he isn't getting surgery tomorrow (need to preop and reduce swelling), and if it's not he's not getting on the field tomorrow either way. There's also an argument to giving it a couple days to reduce swelling to...

    Guys. ACL injury is not a “serious medical injury” from a health standpoint. There’s absolutely no reason he couldn’t be watching practices with a knee brace even if he had a torn acl. The doctors and training staff already likely know the extent of the injury. Have to read between the lines...

    Lovie Smith receives 2-year contract extension through 2023

    Lol. Because as long as the head coach stays the same and coordinators are changed like undewear there's stability?

    Georgetown 88, Illinois 80 POSTGAME

    Pretending the lack of dunking has nothing to do with athleticism is being intentionally naive. That being said, of course there are other means of showing athleticism. Still felt like Gtown was in another class.

    Lack of athleticism still shows. I don’t think we had one dunk. They had countless.

    How about the Space Force? No one can be offended by that right? Edit: Looks like I lost the space (force) race

    Th Lovie hotseat narratives are so lazy. No thought whatsoever, but I am scared of the National perspective projecting a program in turmoil. They may force the narrative upon us even if it isn’t true. Gotta win some games this year.

    If he had his surgery in march, timetable to return will likely be November-December for contact drills. Then he will need to get into game shape. You need about a full year of recovery for ACL to get to 100%, but some players will return at 6 months but obviously not be at their best. Not...

    Had to win this game in regulation. There was no way we were going to hang with them down 4 players in OT.
