    Pregame: Illinois at UConn, Saturday, September 7th, 2:30pm CT, CBSSN

    I'm guessing vegas over corrects after taking a bath on the week 1 illini line. When do the lines open? guessing 21.5

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    Care to share a little more of what you may know? Was BU opposed to the move, the timing of the move, or the reasoning behind the move? For example, which one of these best characterizes your version of the events? Scenario 1 Whitman: Coach you're staff is going to add Gentry in Walker's...

    I'm guessing maybe they just covered the difference between what we were paying and the new salary... so maybe more in the $10M-$20M but either way, if you're going to put your name on the coaching position, you'd think you'd get an announcement.

    Safe to assume that Griffin took the photo then, or is there something even more cryptic that should be read into his absence?

    Pregame: Illinois vs Akron, Saturday, August 31st, 11:00am CT, BTN

    Forget which season should have an asterisk due to Deloitte paying for student tickets, but I think it will be closer to 33,000. Also the official box score has the Kent St. attendance at 31,898. So I'm predicting a minor up tick (unless they run another promotion)...

    Illini Football 2019

    I'm sure I missed a post somewhere in the last three years where you laid out the argument that the situation Lovie inherited wasn't that bad. Can you point me to it. Coming off the Cubit extension, the Timmy B scandal, the timing of Lovie's hiring, and the resulting roster I struggle to see...

    Got to say it's hard for me to take this statement as a given. I won't argue that 2016 to present Lovie Smith is a better college football coach than all of these people listed, but I believe they all started in much better situations.

    NBA / Illini in the Pros Thread

    Did a quick run through on the NBA Summer League Rosters. Saw Kendrick Nunn (Heat) and Rayvonette Rice (Suns). Did I miss anybody who wore the Orange & Blue?

    So you see where you might have lost some people when you said you'd put beating Michigan in the same category as beating Purdue/Minny/NW or are we taking it again from the top?

    I know this was hyperbole, but I only have visions of him picking somebody's pocket and going end to end for a layup. He's got the skills to do it. He's just needs a little more time to learn and avoid silly fouls regardless of where he was picking them up.
