    Illinois 77, UNLV 74 POSTGAME

    I’m pretty neutral on the coaching demeanor topic, and I agree completely that good coaches and bad coaches yell, and good coaches and bad coaches don’t yell (would love to see a four quadrant matrix on that). But I think the end of a close game is a good time for a coach to show some poise...

    12/8 Games

    Lots of them. Northwestern on a 19-0 run to go up 2 on DePaul. Gut check time for UK. Seton Hall up 4 midway with 8 to play, but Seton Hall looks a little too excited.

    Pregame: Illinois at Notre Dame, Tuesday, November 27th, 6:00pm CT, ESPNU

    Yep, ND is either on the upsweep of a steep learning curve, or DePaul was an outlier and they will revert to form tonight. Neither would surprise me. I’m not sold on the whole rather start 3-6 against a tough schedule because the players will develop faster. It could happen, but I’ll believe...

    Pregame: Illinois at Notre Dame, Tuesday, November 27th, 6:00pm CT, ESPNU

    Hubb and Harvey (Brey’s two highest ranked recruits since Demetrius Jackson, I think) are both coming off major surgeries. ACL for Hubb and microfracture for Harvey. So they are both behind where they “should” be. Harvey wasn’t fully cleared until October. They will probably get better, but...

    2018-2019 Predictions Thread

    ND is very winnable. They return: a very good guard (Gibbs), three or four upperclassmen who need to take big leaps that they may or may not be capable of, and a sophomore (Brey’s highest ranked recruit since Jackson) who had microfracture surgery last year and is a total question mark. Their...

    Ah. Recruiting is fluid.

    You mean a Landers Nolley type situation? Because the short term does not look good.

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    SFA dominated WVU in 15-16 before losing at the last second to ND. The West Virginia win was impressive, but I will note that WV teams can be very stupid at times.

    I thought Boeheim was sticking around to coach his kid who will be a freshman in 2018?

    Xavier fans would burn the place to the ground if that happened.

    Cincinnati people think there’s a very, very good chance Mack will take the UL job. But the idea that it has been a done deal for months is silly.
