  1. Double ACL

    Rob Jordan passed away

    I will always remember an interview he did where he said that all that mattered to his kid was that Rob and his mother believed in him. If your kid believes you believe in him/her the sky is the limit.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2019)

    I would worry more if the team wasn't complete. But this team on paper is complete. We no longer after Cockburn have a glaring hole. Until Ayo moves forward this position at Illinois is hard to sell for a highly ranked PG. You always have to recruit in this world of transfers, early draft...

    Illini Basketball 2019-2020

    I didn't think that we would play GB and Kofi at the same time. I love this projected team though.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May 2019)

    I am surprised Samba stayed. At times when he needed to play, Underwood still wouldn't give him minutes. I thought highly of him in his limited tick and I wonder how he improves while being with Fletch and training year round. If he is committed I think we still may have something here.

    Coaching Carousel

    I don't think Underwood's style was ever going to beat Beilein. They were so well coached at Michigan, great spacing, great roster construction. Beilein did a great job there, I am more than ready for Michigan to get knocked off their perch.

    I felt good about it until I read your pro vs con list.

    It does sound nice that we are finally a program that can invest a couple years into a project to turn him into a good Jr or Sr. That kind of development got lost when JFG took over.

    At least overmatched at the Nike hoop summit. That game is full of the best of the best. I have faith he will play big minutes next year.

    Watching the tournament you can tell that we not only need a Kofi but we need 6'9'' power forward who is athletic and aggressive. I think he was trying to get that with Higgs. Underwood knows what he needs to recruit to fix this team

    Indiana is playing really well. These last two games are big for our offseason excitement.

    Penn State 83, Illinois 76 POSTGAME

    Robert from Illini board, com was way to negative. We got manhandled, we do not have the strength this season. Kofi coming in next year will help with getting bullied by a team like PSU. We also got jobbed on the physicality of the game. If this game is called differently we win. We also had all...

    Kids showed a lot of moxie tonight. Good game, the ball just wouldn't go through the hole.

    When Griffin's mom got on Twitter, at around the same time as Frazier's uncle. I thought we were screwed.

    Dudes who rout for Ohio State don't get dates on Valentine's Dates. I expect a sell-out.

    Congrats to Rutgers as well. Great game by them.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Rutgers, Saturday, February 9th, 3:00pm CT, BTN

    We have done enough this season to see things moving forward. I win against Rutgers can be the start of ending this season at a very high level. Going 5-3 the rest of the way and winning at least 1 in the BTT are reasonable goals imo

    Illinois 79, Michigan State 74 POSTGAME

    Watching MSU looks very similar to other programs before a giant fall off. I think their run is coming to a long painful end.

    Rutgers is better than they have been. I have watched them a few times and come away impressed each time. Really big game.

    Favorite game of the season. If we win tonight, it really means something. I real turnaround and some hope for the future. If we lose, it is not the end of the world for this growing, young team.
