    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I agree that it is a good sign... Which didn't seem possible when just a month ago so many were predicting half the team was ready to transfer out...

    We're into the 21st Century, and they're finally deciding to upgrade into the 20th.... Great move... Better late than never.

    2018-2019 Post Mortem

    IMHO.... We live in a world where instant success is the rosetta stone. Some believe that if a coach cannot win, win big, and win instantly then they should be fired. If we followed this motto to its ultimate conclusion, we end up firing a coach after their first loss, and hiring a new one, only...

    2018-2019 Post Mortem

    Hmmmm.... IMHO (and I know I'll get slammed for this), it's more on the young players habits and their attitudes about defense than anything else.... The superstar HS players that make the top of the rankings, always are more interested in 'offense'... Scoring is what makes a ball player obtain...

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    He had one block - not a lot, but one more than 70% of the rest of the team, and 3 rebounds.. You're right, he's not performing well offensively - He did have one really good open look which missed, and I think that further hurt him because he never really wanted the ball again. But he does...

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    Look, I don't think TU should get 'tick' over any scholarship player.... That's NOT what I was responding to. Plus I believe your statement is misleading. TU didn't get playing time over AJ, or Ayo, or Trent or Feliz and AG. He was subbed in with Feliz, Griffin, DLR, and (? - I've forgotten). He...

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    Yes... that first tv timeout. When they came back on the court all 5 starters were out. I think they only played about 3 1/2 minutes until a foul, but they were in there - TU, KN, DLR, AG & Feliz ... I'm pretty sure.

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    BU subbed all 5 at that 4 minute break to give the guys a rest, and to calm them down a little. TU made a couple of bad moves for sure, but frankly several other players made a couple of bone-headed plays also... I think your being overly critical because he's the coaches son...

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    I really feel sorry for Damonte. He's under a tremendous amount of pressure, and if you look at his face during the games, he looks really, really frustrated... But I have confidence he'll be a better points contributor next year.

    Eight Ole Miss players kneel during national anthem

    I'm an older veteran... much older actually... And it doesn't bother me, nor do I feel disrespected. In fact it gives me hope. Hope that maybe that not so brilliant war I fought in wasn't in vain after all... and hope that WE as a nation can finally come to grips with the truth about what...

    That's pretty brave actually... particularly in Mississippi, where the sons of the Confederacy are still fighting the Civil War.

    I was Wrong Thread; Now I'm a Believer

    Since this is all 'just in fun'.... I'd like to hear from those who said that BU had 'lost the team', and those who intimated that many (maybe as many as 'half' ) were just looking for an opportunity to 'transfer' .... Listening to what the players are actually saying, and NOT injecting ones own...
