    Game Thread: Illinois vs Nebraska

    Another dumb rule change. I don’t know how many years ago but they used to use the horn when determining if a shot is good. That’s the best way. You can watch release AND listen fior horn. How can you watch clock and release? You can’t. Oh but with wonderful review you can waste 5 minutes...

    I don’t think Ayo needs rest but the schedule dictates he’s gonna get it. Even next weeks schedule of Monday, Thursday and Sunday is a walk in the park compared to the NBA schedule he aspires to compete in. He’s young and healthy. He’ll be fine.

    Exactly. Not much of chance even with Ayo? It’s a cliche but true-That’s why they play the game. I know one thing. If we shoot 29%, we’ll probably lose. Like RP McMurphy once said. It’s an old Indian game. Called put the ball in the hole.

    He’s not a lottery pick at this point. No way. But Chris Washburn was a lottery pick once so who knows.

    Rutgers 72, Illinois 57 POSTGAME

    I’d like to see us press once in a while. Not just last minutes of game when we are down. And I don’t mean down 15 or more like today’s last few minutes. But how bout at the 5 minute mark when it was getting away from us? Or in the first half for a different look?

    Kofi not strong with the ball. Gets knocked out of his hands too easy.

    None of us have examined him I so don’t know how anyone on this board can make a judgment on him playing or not. If medical folks ok him and he thinks he can play, by all means PLAY!
