    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2020)

    I am not saying they are forced to go to college. I am saying they are forced to double major in college.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2020)

    The sooner that Universities realize athletic programs are the most difficult program to get into at their respective university, the sooner this conversation topic can go away. There is no reason that any athlete should be forced to double major at a University. Every player on the Illinois...

    Illinois 24, Wisconsin 23 POSTGAME

    I just want to say that this was the best day as an Illini fan since AT LEAST the Illini win over Indiana in 2013 in basketball. Post-National Championship game it goes in no order: 2007 FB win over OSU 2013 BB win over IU 2019 FB win over UW I dont have a strong opinion between those 3, but...

    Pregame: Illinois at Purdue, Saturday, October 26th, 11:00am CT, BTN

    This is the question, right? The game at Purdue just became the biggest game for this program in 12 years. Win against Purdue, don't lose your wits against Rutgers and we have 3 straight opportunities to get bowl eligible, including a home game against Northwestern to end the season. Lose to...

    Nebraska 42, Illinois 38 POSTGAME

    Tonight feels really unfair to be an Illini fan. Not sure if that is because I am pretty sure I could have made better decisions than the head coach, better throws than the starting quarterback, better catches than the receivers or better calls than the referees. We win if one of those groups...

    Pretty positive the loss to Gonzaga is the new "Mike Thorne 1st Half against ISU" narrative. Just imagine!

    Iowa State 84, Illinois 68 POSTGAME

    The Tyler Underwood playing time has a rather uncomfortable Ryan Cubit feel to it... That said, Underwood must sincerely believe Tyler is providing something necessary as Brad Underwood is in a completely different situation than Bill Cubit. I still remain baffled why Tyler was in the game.

    Gonzaga 84, Illinois 78 POSTGAME

    It is hard to sit here and be negative when losing that closely to a top 5 team. I am not negative, and overall I view it as a real positive that there is this amount of passion (myself included) following another early season loss. I openly admit that evaluating offensive plays and "obvious"...

    What Illinois "needs" is varied by each fan's own perspective. What I "need" from Illinois football is some entertainment value. Lane Kiffin is a lock there, thus a no brainer hire to me. If he finds a way to win consistently as well, we can all celebrate that first in my 20+ years paying...

    I would refer to the Maryland Scandal thread to highlight what I assume the OP feels a real scandal constitutes. Lane Kiffin left the Tennessee job with some minor violations. that whole conference flaunts those kind of actions in the NCAA's face. If that bothers posters here, they must be real...

    My weekly plea... Just stop it. The run, the pass... any third down and distance put before them. Good Lord, Lane Kiffin would make Illinois football so interesting, I get giddy at the thought of him following Fleck to a conference podium. The trolling he would do... I love you, Lovie...
