    Illinois Alumni Team in TBT

    Really missing a guy like Rayvonte right now. Having one extra scorer would have been huge. Wish he could have stuck around.

    Illini Football 2020

    None of this conversation matters until this season (hopefully) happens. This same conversation about Lovie and the state of the program he took over happens like every 3 months on this board I swear. This year will give us a clear indication of what direction we are headed in. Even winning just...

    Coached against this kid in basketball the past two seasons. He owned us the first time and then we got him in foul trouble the second time ;) Really athletic for his size, and great footwork. Surprised he didn't play football the past two seasons but then again their team only won maybe 2 or...

    Any rumors on the DL coach search?

    Bracketology

    Prediction: Ten, I repeat TEN B1G teams will make it to the tourney this year. Possibly 11 which would tie the old Big East record if I remember correctly.

    Betiku to the NFL

    This is directly related to Clark leaving. Good luck to him. Hopefully we can find someone in the transfer market to slide right in.

    Assume he would be a D-Line addition instead of O-Line?

    Coaching Carousel

    If the staff stays the exact same on the defensive side I will be extremely upset. Even if we win out, there needs to be an official and capable DC that isn't in the Smith family tree.

    Coaching Carousel

    So when the season ends after our bowl win, does Lovie hire a DC that can run his system or does he keep things the same with extra defensive responsibilities? Something I've been pondering for awhile.

    Too lazy to check.. Which of the transfers are back next year and which are gone? Only losing Petitbon correct?

    Illinois 37, Michigan State 34 POSTGAME

    The Wisconsin game was huge but this... THIS is the beginning of something truly special. Something we'll look back on with tears of joy in 2022 when we're in the Big Ten championship game.

    Illinois 83, Grand Canyon 71 POSTGAME

    Kansas, VCU, Wisky, Auburn, LSU, and Northwestern, and Mississippi State all struggled against lower tier schools tonight (especially NW šŸ˜‰). I'd say not to read too much into these last two games. Excited for the chance to take down Zona in their house. Go Illini. Also, Kofi needs to at least...

    Pregame: Illinois at Michigan State, Saturday, November 9th, 2:30pm CT, FS1

    Kind of have the feeling this is like the Minny game but lower scoring. Close, but win #6 looks like NW to me. Hoping I'm wrong. MSU- 21 Illini- 9
