A million fans have shown. The gates open. Thousands stream through as they begin broadcasting on international tv. Illinois echoes across media around the world. The Illini are national champions. It starts tomorrow.
I get your point but bringing them to Miami in the hope that within a day their visas will be cleared is a joke. Bad PR and if you were going to fly them home just do that from the beginning. Multiple people dropped the ball. I'll let this rest now.
Yeah that's the joke. You don't take the flight to Miami unless you think you're going all the way to Italy. The DIA liaison who was in charge of logistics is accountable as well as the travel agency who arranged everything. Unacceptable.
Bill Walton introduced "Travis Steele from Iowa State" at the coaches dinner this evening. The whole crowd was dumbfounded and Sean Miller had to jump in and remind Walton Xavier was a #1 seed in the tournament last year lol.
