    Illinois-Ohio State Game Cancelled

    I don't want to sound like that guy, but this seems kind of sketchy. Of course health and the safety of their players and coaches should be number one, but this is OSU and them making the CFP would be a huge money maker. Not having a full roster and potentially losing to Illinois would...

    Illinois-Ohio State Game Cancelled

    Maybe someone who has a better understanding can elaborate. At this point is this game a must play for OSU in regards to the CFP?

    I would be shocked if the game is played at this point.

    A little bit of a Thanksgiving hangover for these guys. They'll get it figured out in the second half.

    Coaching Discussion/Carousel

    We've tried several different types of coaches over the years. The only one I don't think we've tried is a young up and comer coach. My memory doesn't go back as far as some of you though. Like many have said on here I want a coach who has the ability to coach with a good scheme, wants to prove...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread

    I have full confidence in Underwood and the assistants, but it is a little bizarre that we've had so many misses this fall. I know they will continue to be active, but you'd hate to see a gap in talent for a recruiting cycle.
