    NCAA Tournament Canceled

    In a world where JOY has been cancelled for the month, this made me laugh very loudly. I thank you sir.

    NCAA Tournament Canceled

    Exactly. And the low mortality rate is achieved only by testing and slowing the growth rate to a minimum so the medical system can handle the most at risk. If we do nothing and the infection rate is super high, the medical system will be unable to respond to everyone's needs and the mortality...

    Look at it this way... this team was undefeated in the B1G and NCAA tourneys this year. I am so glad we picked up our season tickets and got the opportunity to see these kids grow, mature, and improve from the beginning of last season to the end of this season. There were so many surprises...

    Illinois 67, Indiana 66 POSTGAME

    I was at the game so didn't benefit from all the angles TV has to offer, but was that just about the worst officiating we've seen at State Farm in a very long time? Those guys need to go back to high school games for a season. I felt that the ref's really dictated the outcome of the game...

    Yeah. He had some minutes in with Kofi. I never want to see Georgi and Kofi on the floor at the same time. I think we're a lot better when we play smaller/faster.

    I don't think he's a lost cause, but I think he's a lost cause at the 4. He's murder out on the arc. He needs to play the 5 off the bench. Something has Giorgi rattled and it affects every single facet of his game. It's tough to watch.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Nebraska

    I mean we take a terrible shot, defend well, and then miss a layup to give up an easy two. That's pretty much us in a nutshell. Oof.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Nebraska

    If you can work Eeyore into a sports thread comment you're probably doing something right. It's not our shooting or passing that keeps us in games. We rebound and we defend. We're pretty bad at everything else relative to the rest of the conference. Hell if someone DOES get a hot hand and drops...

    Agreed. He's hesitant about everything and it kills him, even at the freethrow line. I think moving him out to the 4 instead of spelling Kofi at the 5 really got into his head. They broke Georgi this year. I hope they can figure out how to fix him.

    No doubt. That Kofi kid might be good one day. lol I mean can you imagine him as he loses a few more pounds, gets in better condition and keeps getting stronger? I'm so glad he's seeing this kind of success after the hard work he's put in dropping pounds and working out. He could look a lot...

    I don't know. With the Kansas thing I think there are going to be some examples made. I'm afraid Griffin gets lumped in with Kansas. I'm afraid he chose a very bad night for a very stupid thing. It's one thing to play aggressively and it's another thing altogether to make a complete !!! of...
