    Tevian Jones enters transfer portal

    That would be my guess also. Hamlin is not a Power 5 player. Verdonk I kind of like.

    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    It is a big deal. How can you offer 19 kids and not sign any (maybe one?). And thanks or making my point on the University in general. Too many foreigners and not enough in-state students.

    How do you not sign anyone from the state of Illinois. This is a failure of epic proportions that needs to be corrected immediately. For the flagship University of a state to not recruit anyone from the state is utterly embarasing. I don't care how good or bad the other recruits are, to be...

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Michigan

    I have no idea how Whitman allowed Lovie to make the decisons he did regarding coaching positions but in the end it will be Lovie's undoing. Don't know how soon it will happen.

    Illinois 31, UConn 23 POSTGAME

    The read option just isn't working with Peters because the defense is not respecting the QB run. They are selling out on the running back. In my opinion we need to switch to more of a pro-style attack with Peters. I also feel a two-step drop would be more effective to get the ball in the...

    I am guessing Miles Smith has been retained.

    By reading above, it appears Thomas may be trying to leverage himself with Illinois to get Estes on the team. Typically I would think this would be poor strategy with Lovie but EastSL is assuredly also involved. I would imagine there is a whole lot of behind the scenes stuff going on right...

    Florida Atlantic 73, Illinois 71 OT POSTGAME

    I am old enough to remember what used to make good offensive basketball. Pick and rolls, give and go's, back doors, chest passes. I hated the guy but Bobby Knight had it right. Now it is nothing but ball screens to set up a dribble one-on-one move to try to emulate the pro game. When you...

    I really hope the kid Barnes from Gibson City accepts his PWO offer also. He can play also.

    Ohio State 77, Illinois 67 POSTGAME

    We only have about 5 high major players on the team and the officials didn't cost us the game but that was the worst officiated game I have ever seen. Just embarrassing for those officials and the Big Ten.
