    I thought the news coming out after his OV is that they were much more optimistic that he would make it.

    Illinois 63, Ohio State 56 POSTGAME

    Tyler only got a couple minutes when Trent banged his knee and Dre, AJ, and Monte were on foul trouble the last 2 minutes in the second half. He was just a bridge to halftime. As for Tev, he's not quite as quick defensively.. maybe it was a matchup thing as the announcers said multiple times...

    I'm not sure how to bold text on my phone but I can try harder to figured it out if you still can't find where I said he took one bad shot

    Man, this was Griffin's breakout game but the shots just didn't fall. Even so, I think BU is fine with all but maybe one and I think AG has the shooters mentality where it won't bother him. Most importantly, he kept his focus and had some big defensive/rebounding plays toward the end...

    B1G Next Year

    I think the statement that you'd be disappointed with 3rd or 4th is getting ahead of yourself a little bit and frankly a little crazy after how many tournament-less years. I, without a doubt expect a ton of improvement and hope that we can be there contending at the end of the year, but that...

    In the SI mock that was posted on the NBA draft page, Kentucky's top three are at 13, 22, and 27. Hardly any guarantees there. Thought that might be relevant to some of the KW talk that popped up a little while back

    I almost forgot the added motivation on this game in getting a head start in proving to EJ he made the wrong choice! (I don't wish anything bad on the kid, just would have loved him in the O&B)

    I think you pretty much agreeing with what I said. If we win all our remaining games but one, and get two in the BTT, we're in at 17-17. Not realistic, but possible. Regardless, I hope I'm in a position to be proven wrong because that means we just went on some kind of a run and we'll be...

    Yeah forgot that was home. Hopefully the quality of actual work I am doing while bouncing back and forth between here is better than the quality of research on the illini season and NET rankings to date. 😆

    We both are wrong. Georgetown Q2(78) Miznoz Q2(91) Xavier Q3(108) Neutral site is as follows. Q1 1-50 Q2 51-100 Q3 101-200 Q4 201-353 At the time of my first post I was guessing everyone besides FAU was top 100..

    I guess the way I phrased that made it seem like that was the sole point of my argument for them to be in. It wasn't, I was just making the point that if that happens our resume will stack up in a manner that gets us in. Even if there isn't an "official" criteria of recent performance, you...

    Yeah it's definitely a long shot to actually happen but I will have to respectfully disagree with anyone who says a 17-17 team who just went 10-2 in their last 12 games in a very tough B1G doesn't get in. 3 or 4 of those wins would be top 25 and 5 or 6 would be against tourney teams. I'm not...

    We don't necessarily have to win the next 2, just 3 out of the next 4 to keep a tourney hope alive. Which is still a pretty tall order. I'd be thrilled with a 4-3 finish and a decent showing in the BTT. Maybe get a NIT invite based on level of play recently but most importantly carry a lot of...

    I didn't believe a college bball team only put up 24 so I had to look it up... Woof
