    Ayo Dosunmu: MRI showed no structural damage

    Incredible news. I'm so relieved for him and his family.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Michigan State, Tuesday, February 11th, 8:00pm CT, ESPN

    I actually think 19-11, 12-8 in this year's B1G is safely in.

    Pregame: Illinois at Iowa, Sunday, February 2nd, 12:00pm CT, FS1

    I'm honestly not sure. Iowa is very good.

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    :unsure: The B1G almost literally sends a team to the Final Four every year - there's been a B1G team in six of the last eight, and 12 over the past 15 years.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Minnesota, Thursday, January 30th, 6:30pm CT, FS1

    I'm actually not worried about this. We've got a very weird situation where the last time we had a true home crowd (with students) we were....not very good? Now they're back and we are on a tear and at the top of the conference. It's going to be like we're playing in a different building tonight.

    Hope I don't get fired for running through a wall at my office just now.

    Got it, ok - so I was a round off. Thanks for pulling that.

    I checked on this to make sure I'm not just blindly inventing complications. Let's pretend the season ended today and the BTT seeded out based on the standings. As the #2, we'd face the winner of Purdue-Penn State. Purdue isn't currently projected in and that'd only be our second game against...

    Agree - I’m more referring to if we play someone we’ve already played twice in the BTT (Maryland, for instance), then we can’t be in their region at all.

    Two things on that: 1) I feel like every year there’s at least one “protected” seed that gets a tough break in that they are technically close to home, but some other lower seed is even closer in their pod. Would love to be the object of someone’s ire who (rightfully) complains that...

    2020 NBA Draft

    I'm not cherry-picking anything. Regardless of what's on RealGM, nobody would count him - he left the program and his play somewhere else got him to the league. If Mark Smith made the league, would you count him? In a vacuum, do I think he could use another year? Yeah - it's a lot more...

    2020 NBA Draft

    You guys are inventing this hang-up on one-and-dones. That doesn't really have anything to do with it. Go when it makes sense to go, and everybody wins. (Also, you can't be counting Kendrick Nunn)

    2020 NBA Draft

    What's a ton? Since 2006, we've had two players log at least two years in the NBA (James Augustine and Meyers Leonard). Over that same time period, Wisconsin has had 5, and Purdue has had 6 (I'm counting Carsen Edwards in that, since he will hit the two year mark). If you expand that to "any...
