    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    Is the "Please respect my decision" sentiment directed at other programs' recruiting efforts? Or just haterz in general?

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2019)

    Value. Ya know, it is entirely possible that BU actually does have a grand plan, is smarter than all of us when it comes to managing the program, and had deeper reasons for playing his son in games than nepotism. For all we know, Tyler buys in more to his real role on the squad when he gets some PT.

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    That's a good one. My knee-jerk reaction was to go with #2, I think bc it's shiny and new and Ayo is gonna be an assassin next season, but then BP3's voice whispers "hello" and I'm not so sure.

    I've seen it supposed several times in this thread, but I'm having a hard time imagining Kofi not starting from day one.

    News-Gazette: Brad Underwood cleared in DIA Investigation into his coaching

    Feels quaint imagining something like this would cause a black eye on the program or university, or leave lingering doubts in the minds of anyone who matters -- even if the alleged incidents were affirmed, but certainly not when they've been repudiated -- what with our one-hour news cycle and...

    Murray State, man..... what a Cinderella story! TWO guys on their 13-man roster named "Brion" with an "o"!!

    Man, we'd be ecstatic if over the last 8 years our resume included "a 150-115 record that included three 20-win seasons and two Sweet Sixteen appearances in the NCAA tournament in 2016 and 2018... six players that have made their way into the NBA."

    Illinois 81, Northwestern 76 POSTGAME

    I guess I'd have to say I'm happy to be at a place where 81 points in-league can result from a spotty offensive performance.

    Game Thread: Illinois at Wisconsin

    It would be so great if, for the next 15 years, we just pown Wisconsin bc it's one of those things where our styles just clash so much,,, and we go, like, 24-6 against them in our next 30 meetings.

    Soooooo, Chris Holtman and Archie Miller don't seem quite the amazing geniuses this season, which is nice. And, does everyone still think Rick Barnes sucks?

    Illinois 78, Maryland 67 POSTGAME

    Loved Jones's "readiness" on those threes: ready to catch, feet set, in the flow,,, when I see that from young players it makes me think they've been well coached.

    How so? And any thoughts on which B10 team on this year's schedule the strategy doesn't figure to do poorly against?

    This thread hilariously breaks down by two demographics: age and experience smoking pot.

    ""Here is another Shot in the dark....... by now Brad Underwood realizes he not where he is suppose to be.... and looking to escape!"" Pardon my ignorance, but what does this mean? I mean, I know what it means, but what things about Illinois would someone point to as the reasons why it's not...

    Would anyone like to comment on ND taking down Purdue? G'town lost to SMU as well.

    Illinois 73, East Tennessee State 55 POSTGAME

    I'm optimistic too, but on the "more potent" point, AJ needs to shoot well consistently (yes, he's a glue guy who rebounds, but 2/13 and a drop off in production like last year ain't gonna cut it from a Sr. starter); same for Damonte. We need points from those guys to win the close games.
