    Pitino telling his guys to flop. Against the rules but Pitino. 'Nuff said.

    Kobe Bryant dies in helicopter crash

    Just terrible news. He was a great athlete but also a great person and apparently a great dad. Such an awful loss for his family, the city of LA and the world as a whole. He will be missed. Thoughts for his wife and surviving daughters and all those who were close to him.

    Robert Archibald passes away

    Very sad news. Thoughts go out to his young family. Never heard a bad word about Arch.

    This gives a bit of a look at what BU is saying about Damonte. He does like him (at least publicly). http://news-gazette.il.newsmemory.com/?publink=0f5561e4d_134115a

    Great. With our luck he will come here and the NCAA will give us the death penalty for playing an athlete who had an agent because he talked to his mom.

    A couple of local articles (News-Gazette) have pointed out that the proper pronunciation of Kofi's last name is CO-burn.

    With the right wind we can hit the FG from beyond 60 yards. Not inconceivable. We need some hope. Please.

    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    Trying not to beat this horse to long but there is a difference when a single employer (team) takes action and when an entire industry acts in concert to deny that person a job. I know the First Amendment doesn't cover private action but there is a point there that is different when an entire...

    I agree the argument should not succeed. I just fear it might. The experiment has definitely gone off the rails.

    And I am not for Lovie staying but if this is a win he has made an argument for staying that might work.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Michigan

    It is hard to believe that these two teams can look so different from one half to the other. Harbaugh is in serious danger if he can't beat us. If Lovie stays he has to figure out how to get a team out there to play two full halves at their best. If we pull this off it only means we misplayed...
