    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    followed up by a clutch performance on the road. PLAY FREAKIN GLORIA. IMO it was sweeter to win in Boston so we could rub it in the faces of their classless fans. Downtown STL was still nuts. We filled TWO stadiums with crazy fans.

    Problem is his defense has been candyland so far. If it can make a modest improvement, to something like uno or battleship, we will be greatly improved.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2019)

    If it's actually true that the staff will only accept a commitment from their "top tier" targets at this time, it would go a long way in explaining why we always have so many open scholarships going into the season. The staff could take commitments from a few solid 3 star prospects now and...

    Maybe a reason we have 3 open scholarships for this upcoming season.

    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...

    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.

    2018-2019 Predictions Thread

    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...
