    Will this Special K help treat the Illini basketball induced depression I have been suffering from?

    Pregame: Illinois vs Northwestern, Wednesday, March 13th, 8:00pm CT, BTN

    Got a $6 ticket through Stubhub yesterday. With fees & taxes I probably spent $14. There will be a seat number on the ticket but supposedly I can sit anywhere. Went to the Ohio State vs Illini game at the United Center (yes I was the one). Hoping more people show up for this one.

    Indiana 92, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    Don’t know much about basketball but that Indiana kid looked really good to me. How many minutes did he play? He never looked tired.

    Indiana 92, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    After watching that point guard for Indiana make all those crazy accurate passes under duress, I’d hate to think what sort of assist numbers he’d have had without being harassed by Illinois’ guards.

    This whole Peter in Peter out thing sounds kind of naughty to me. Are these FWBs you are referring to?

    I found your comment mean spirited, puerile and funny all at the same time.

    Pregame: Illinois at Northwestern/Tim Beckman/Coaching Carousel: Saturday, November 29th, 11:00am CT, ESPNU

    At the start of the season, the over/under on the number of wins for the Illinois Football Team was 4.5. Obviously this was before they lost their starting quarterback and a couple offensive linemen. If the odds makers were correct the team has already overachieved. Sorry if the wins weren't...

    If you check back I think most of the stories about him, excluding magazine cover articles, were sort of negative. He was not considered to be playing up to his perceived level either because he had been injured in the Summer or because he was out of shape.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2013-March 2014)

    On the subject of over-hyped Simeon players. Pretty sure Jabari Parker underwhelmed his whole senior year and, get this, Derrick Rose couldn't even manage a field goal in the IHSA state championship game his senior year. Can't imagine how much second guessing that must have caused at Duke and...

    Illinois 61, UNLV 59 POSTGAME

    Woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and was pleasantly surprised to see I was still smiling as a result of last night's game. I see that Tracy Abrams is taking some grief on the board. What I saw out there was a 'junk yard dog' who played tenaciously for 28 minutes without fouling...

    I swear DJ Richardson came to college with the same resume: athletic, lock down defender and a slasher on offense. I think he did OK.

    All you North Park basketball haters need to show some respect. I'm pretty sure they 3 peated as NCAA Division III champions from 1978-1980. I didn't go there but had my Alma Mater knocked out of the tournament twice by them.

    Power forward for the Ugandan Lions AAU team in the early fifties. He became unrecruitable at most colleges when it was learned he hadn't attended high school. The rest of the universities (ie. Kentucky and Memphis) lost interest when it was learned that statements he made concerning destroying...

    How about May getting away with aggravated battery during the championship game while Augustine couldn't exhale without having a foul called.

    Illinois 45, Cincinnati 17 POSTGAME

    Bugger off! Everybody knows they aren't winning the Big Ten with or without trick plays. Just give the team and their coaching staff some credit. Going into this game the hope was that they weren't going to get annihilated.

    I was talking to an assistant basketball coach at a Public League high school a couple of weeks ago. He said they had already started practices. They just called them 'conditioning' sessions.

    Score for Illinois: Illini basketball, football to air on WSCR-AM 670 in Chicago

    WSCR had the Illinois games up until around 2006. I had the feeling that some of the disrespect shown by several of the hosts toward Illinois started up after they lost the contract.

    The 'Jordan Rules' were implemented by John Daley, the coach of the Pistons. They definitely weren't meant to protect Jordan. On the contrary the rule was to knock the crap out of him.
