    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    To me, we've alternated between two positions on instate recruiting: Right now, we're in a "we give them no special treatment and they give us no loyalty" phase. The other phase is "we give them special treatment and attention and they give us no loyalty." If the best kids we can get are in...

    Alan Griffin transfers to Syracuse

    He was very solid there, double-digit scoring all three years. A Syracuse friend is hoping this Central Illinois to Central New York transfer goes as well.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (March 2020)

    Omoruyi going to play for Hurley at Arizona State seemed done and dusted, but things flipped Saturday when the coronavirus made him decide he be more comfortable close to home. Great get for Rutgers.

    2020 Illinois Basketball Appreciation Thread

    Hopefully, we go on to many years of success under Brad Underwood along with some of these players and many new ones, but this is the group that restored Illinois basketball to what it should be. A press release went out yesterday saying that ratings for our games on BTN increased by 51 percent...

    No fans at NCAA Tournament, B1G Tournament

    When he canceled the Dayton/Cleveland games, the Ohio governor said something like, “This week, people can’t believe what I’m doing. By next week, they’ll be talking about what an easy decision it must have been.”

    Pregame: B1G All-Conference Awards

    That’s a completely fair point and there are countless different ways to pick COY. If you’re looking at year-over-year improvement, it would be Underwood. On the other hand, some voters look at that award as a “most with least” honor and our turnaround has been led by two enormously talented...

    Pregame: B1G All-Conference Awards

    I wouldn’t overlook Pikiell, though it would be more of a program builder award rather than specifically for achievement this year. The two years before he got there, they were 2-16 and 1-17. His first two years, they were 3-15 each season. Last two years, 7-13 and 11-9. He’s created a positive...

    2/29 Games

    Oklahoma wins at West Virginia. Mountaineers are now 7-9 in conference and have lost 6 of 7. Last two games are at Ames and home for Baylor. They're actually ranked #20 and have been considered a lock, but missing the NCAAs should be a possibility. Notre Dame loses at Wake. Still have a big...

    Coaching Carousel

    I was on a New Year's cruise to the Bahamas and somehow managed to pull in the game on a radio while at sea. That was not time well spent.

    B1G Tournament Forecasting Thread

    If you say so, I’ll root for Iowa to win, but also for Fran McCaffrey to ruin his shoes stepping in dog poop outside the arena.

    Pregame: Illinois at Northwestern, Thursday, February 27th, 7:00pm CT, BTN

    It was Monday and very few important games were played. The only other result that might have had any impact on an at large bid was Texas defeating West Virginia. Yet, Texas is 30 spots behind us in that ranking.
