    IHSA Boys State Basketball Tournament to Return to Champaign!

    I'm glad it is back in Champaign. The first one I distinctly remember what the 1993 championship. The 7 footers from King, Danville finished 3rd with Keon Clark and Durrell Robinson(Danville beat them earlier in the year). I believe Rockford Guilford lost to King in the final.

    Tev is definitely in the position he is in because of his own choices. I hope he sticks it out in Champaign and has a hell of an off-season. This kid is as committed on the defensive end as I have seen in his time here and once he can hit the 3 with consistency and then learn how to deck the...

    Rutgers 72, Illinois 57 POSTGAME

    Call me crazy, but Tev is a huge key for this going positively forward. He has caused his own problems, but the kid, as he gets more time, is improving. His errors, that I saw, were lack of game reps. Get this kid confident and there is no player is this league that can cover him. Start giving...

    A team with as much talent as we have shouldn’t need a rah rah to get going.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Hampton

    I was going to ask if that was a typo in the box score.

    AG looks to be having a nice half. How has the defense looked? Seems to be a lot of possessions based on the score.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    Hindsight is 20/20. I atleast appreciate the meeting on the mound in what seemed to be a team decision.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    That one hurt, but we go again tomorrow. Carlos needs to get right in between the ears. We have pieces on this team, no question, but unless we get some offense we are cooked. We only had one hitter with a significant amount of AB's hit .300(Edman) this year. That wont cut it this year or next.

    And if you want an example of how this defensive system looks on the pro level, watch the Cardinals/Panthers game tomorrow. It will be a good game, because they are professional, but the lowly Cardinals will absolutely torch the Panthers and their constant zone defense. The Cards run a college...

    Nebraska 42, Illinois 38 POSTGAME

    Hardy was probably a poor choice as a DC last year, but in his defense, this defensive scheme with no wrinkles is completely dated, especially on the college level. I can’t understand how Lovie can be paid so much, this is his full time job, studies film, presumably watches college football over...
