    Michigan 42, Illinois 25 POSTGAME

    What's there to say? I'm a diehard Illinois fan that's become apathetic and meh toward my beloved football team. I passed on free tickets with a parking pass, I chose not to watch the game, I checked scores twice online, and never once thought we would have a legit shot at winning this game...

    Eastern Michigan 34, Illinois 31 POSTGAME

    The thread should be called fire Lovie. All I ask is to be mediocre and that doesn't even seem possible.

    Is there really that big of a difference in talent between Seward and Miller that one gets blueblood offers and the other doesn't? It's ironic honestly because a year or two ago the roles would've been flopped almost entirely.

    Which perplexes mean considering the staff has seemed to prioritize him from the beginning (along with Miller obviously)

    I wonder if the young defensive coach for Michigan will become the new head coach? (yaklich, I think it is)

    This pretty much confirms what Ward said. Texas Tech is bringing in a 2019 power forward for a visit infers they didn't land their first choice, aka Holyfield.

    Should we have a preference of 1 or the other of these grad transfer QB's?

    I'd love to get Moss, though, I'd be a bit concerned he would take PT away from Griffin & Jones. However, if we somehow added Holyfield & Moss, we're talking top 25 team and a lock for the tourney IMO.

    I'd probably say my realistic expectation for Kofi next year would be 8 and 6 with the obvious influence defensively in the paint (mostly because he is HUGE). IMO, if we get that or anything more, that would be amazing.

    I think there are a few posters who may be a little overly critical of Kofi. But IMO a lot of us are realistically cautious that Kofi isn't going to come in and dominate. I think it's more than fair to temper our expectations for ANY big outside of the top 10. Historically post players take time...

    Coaching Carousel

    I was at a coaching conference a little over a year ago and heard Knight talk. Unfortunately I saw the same things, it's really quite sad how much his memory is slipping him. No exaggeration, he literally repeated some things at least 20 times. You could tell the crowd felt uncomfortable about...
