    Illinois vs Baylor, Wednesday, December 2nd, 9:00pm CT, ESPN

    A lot of talk about our pick and roll coverages, including me. One thing not being discussed is the Ohio screeners reading the Illini defensive setup and flipping the screen side/angle at the last minute. A well timed adjustment on the screening angle will stress most pick and roll coverages...

    Easier said than done. At times they’ve had nba type length out there. Makes it hard for any offense to score on any defense like that.

    They got away from the zone a lot more last year though. Will be interesting to see what they do.

    I started thinking the same thing. We really didn’t do much. Since we start conference so quickly, I could see him wanting to just game rep the basics more than anything. At least this is what I’m telling myself.

    Somebody on Reddit said that you should be required to announce it for a future season so players can have the chance to use their transfer and so recruits can know before they sign. That makes too much sense so you know the ncaa will never do it.

    Illinois-Ohio State Game Cancelled

    I haven’t watched Ohio State yet this year, and as I always say my football eye is not refined, so I have some questions. 1) how good are they really? 2) how much better are they than us at different positions? I know they’re future nfl guys, but how does that look and translate to the field...

    Man I was having the hardest time figuring out what it said. I don’t think the font choice is the problem just the location of the font on the poster. Raise it up a couple millimeters and you’re good.

    Illinois 41, Nebraska 23 Postgame

    I thought I even saw a random snap of cover 3. I didn’t go back to double check but I said it out loud to my tv.
