    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I think we could certainly achieve that if some things go right. We should have an easier schedule and hopefully a year of experience will help everyone improve. However, given our recent rate of success, it's hard to guarantee anything going right with this team. There is always the possibility...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2019)

    Apparently Tyronn Lue is the favorite for LA next year, but he wants big money to put up with Lebron again. If LA doesn't want to pay him hopefully their next choice is Cal.

    If I was an athlete trying to be immediately eligible, I would present the Mark Smith case as precedent for the NCAA granting hardship waivers due to literally any reason whatsoever.

    this is HUGE!!!! If we can keep a mass exodus from occurring again this offseason, things might FINALLY start looking up for the program. Great news.

    Ohio State: Urban Meyer suspended 3 games

    Yup. It's disgusting that just like Izzo, he'll still be looked upon as a role model because his team wins games. It's absurd to me that in 2018, institutions can get away with covering up blatantly obvious cases of abuse, and yet it happens all the time. Wake me up if anything happens other...

    2 players arrested

    stupid, but if they're getting arrested, better it was something like this and not any sort of violence/abuse. I'm sure the hours will be a good lesson for them. Also how do I get in on mounting that statue for $1150?

    Illini Football 2018

    I would argue that pro sports teams should have an easier time turning things around. With revenue sharing, all teams can offer the same type of money and have the same salary cap, so talent can be persuaded to come to a losing franchise. Worse teams also get better draft picks so in theory they...

    Update: Grad transfer WR Jalen Greene to Utah State

    Weird. I just did a google search and found the utah state message board talking about him coming there. People on there were asking for a link as well but nobody had provided one. The guy's a mystery.
