    Pregame: Illinois at Northwestern, Thursday, February 27th, 7:00pm CT, BTN

    Wow how can so many people on here be so negative and panicked about Thursday. I figured with a team like this and a coach like Underwood would actually bring more positivity at this point in the season, especially with us basically in the tourney at this point. I’d be interested in knowing what...

    When selection Sunday comes and if we don’t have 20 wins, someone might need to check in on LouHenson

    When it comes to Iowa, we need to take Garza out emotionally and get him frustrated. If he makes the mistake of angering Kofi early, angry Kofi is going to pull a full “Warriors” and come out to play, and we know how well that works for us

    2002 I don’t think we were under seeded. That was Maryland’s year and had a lot of teams that had more wins than us. 2004 we got screwed after losing to providence and starting slow in conference. But we were the outright conference champs and should’ve been an elite 8 team. 2006 they really...

    Miami 81, Illinois 79 POSTGAME

    Similar feel to Nebraska football game. I’m sick of this. Another coach that is supposed to be a “defensive genius” and yet it’s the worst thing we got. This was not a difficult matchup. If lykes and the Australian are their best shooters, then put your best defenders (Frazier, Damonte, Feliz)...

    Of course he was. Based on the night, I’d rather see Feliz drive than Ayo. With ayo driving there’s also no chance of a kick to someone open under the basket or out on the baseline, especially in that moment

    Illinois 83, Lewis 50 (Exhibition) POSTGAME

    First game is always going to be tough shooting wise because your body is adjusting to real game speed so quit worrying about Ayo, Griffin, Feliz, and Giorgi. Their strokes are fine. Trent is clearly a fine tuned vet when it comes to being ready for games and really knows his body well and can...

    2019-20 Coaching Discussion/Carousel

    Well why not pull the Underwood trick and Take Smith away from his current contract? Not sure what his terms are there but maybe we get lucky dealing with a complacent AD again. The Co-coordinator thing isn't an issue to me since he was the main guy for 3-4 years.

    2019-20 Coaching Discussion/Carousel

    If you'd truly rather go 4-8 than 7-5 with an offense that's different from what everyone uses then you should be the person that's least interested in getting rid of Lovie. The flexbone offense has been around for Army and Navy for years because it's what their players are built for. It's...

    Monken is a name that more are talking about. Local guy even. From Peoria and went to Millikin

    Iowa 83, Illinois 62 POSTGAME

    I don’t know what it is. I like what Underwood does to these players because he knows how to get them up to play hard and fight. He brings the intensity. I’m just skeptical on his offense. Defensive system has no place in the game anymore. If you watch ACC, Big 12, and SEC basketball, it is all...
