    Color me Orange and Blue, but Tev gives me the willies with what I see as his similarity to Kendall Gill.

    Someone likes what's happening here at Illinois as regards the transfer system . . . they even called us a "winner" . . . along time since that's happened! :D https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2839819-winners-and-losers-of-the-transfer-portal-so-far-in-2019#slide0

    Rat Fink, famous from the 60's, created by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. Created the caricature "Rat Fink" aligning with his passion and creative genius designing hot rod cars. Ed "Big Daddy" Roth I remember building models of his cars in the 60's/70's . . .

    I liked Beilein, but I’m happy to see him gone if it helps ScUM descend to the bowels of the B1G where they belong! Back to the days of “Buck Fo” and “Frieder sucks”! That’s a long time to hate ScUM and everything Maize and Blue . . . but I’ve got patience!

    Is it me, or do my eyes detect a little "giddyup" in his throwing motion? Almost "Tebow-esque"? When I compared to a couple of the other QB's in the frames with him, he seemed to be real loop, and more importantly slow in getting rid of the ball. Not compact or efficient . . .

    3/24 Games

    UCF got jobbed! No over the back call on the rebound by Reddish, then the no call on the last drive by UCF. So sad to see the game end that way, another illegitimate NCAA tournament win by a North Carolina “blue blood”. SMH

    3/15 Weekend Games

    Good point, but they are coasting in their laurels in conference. They did OK this year beating up on down P5 programs (IL, AZ, A&M) and did beat Duke, but lost to NC by 12, and to Tennessee by 3, but put them in the ACC or the B1G, or even the SEC this year and they finish maybe in the top...

    3/15 Weekend Games

    The B1G got hosed I think. Is the ACC that much better then the B1G so they got three #1 seeds? Horse puckey. According to the ACC/B1G challenge . . . No. And Gonzaga as a #1? They play (and dominate) in a !!!! conference and they didn’t even win their conference tourney. Media darlings, not a...

    This is not the Iowa team that played us last night. ScUM is a great team, but Iowa would lose to the Little Sisters of the Poor the way they are playing tonight.

    I’ll be happy to see both Northwesternsux and Minnesota regress to their natural place at the bottom of the conference. It restores my faith in nature 😝

    Nope. We have 2 out of the four factors mentioned. We recruit in some of the toughest areas in the nation (Chicago & St. Louis), and compete everywhere else as a second (third?) tier P5 program that is like the old dancer in “At the Copa” (google it - song by Barry Manilow in 1978). As for...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    We would not have achieved what we did without Adonis. Trying to come back from an ACL injury so quickly AND play in the B1G? Our most heroic player (maybe second to AJ for playing so far out of position) even if the results weren’t what everyone wanted, most likely including himself. He gave us...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    For those decimated by the team falling short of our outlandish expectations for this year, keep in mind every single preseason prediction by coaches or media had us finishing no higher than 12th in conference, with most predicting 13th and a couple 14th. Despite the Swami’s on this board...

    Illinois 74, Northwestern 69 OT POSTGAME

    We can agree on the small things, but let us bask in the glory of a win - even if it is over the last place Northwesternsucks kitties. We did not play well, but we won. Period.
