    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    He does goes on to say he likes all of the coaches at Illinois, they are in contact with him daily and that he may take an official visit to Illinois. I agree that it is a long shot at best, but he is listening and that is the first step.

    The coaching staff needs to refund salaries for this week. Their clock management skills are nonexistent.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Florida State

    I am still waiting for Groce to teach the team anything related to basketball IQ. I guess the high school and grade school coaches are partially to blame, but other teams seem to learn these things.

    Game Thread: Illinois vs Chicago State

    Most teams have a strength, something they do well despite having other deficiencies. It could be good defense, it could be post play, getting to the line, shooting, etc. Heck, it could be as simple as hustle or desire, never giving up. This team has nothing to hang its hat on. That has to go...

    Game Thread: Illinois at Alabama

    This team has nothing left. Nothing from the coaching staff, nothing left from the players. It's like they are stepping on the court for the first time as a team. That cannot happen.

    Since falling down after shooting gets a foul called, we should do it every time, too.

    Sitting at Buckleys on Queen Anne in Seattle - here on on business - they were nice enough to put the game on the center bar TV for me. They even have a Chief flag hanging above the bar. ILL...

    Ohio State 77, Illinois 61 POSTGAME

    This game was bad on many levels. Coaching, effort, basketball IQ, and officiating were all bad. The problem with the coaching and basketball IQ is they have not improved under the current staff and they may have regressed in the last year. The problem with the effort is it is contagious and...

    I was in DC for busines and had a couple of beers I had never tried before at a place called Maddy's Tap Room. They were completely different but I enjoyed them both. The first was a Laughing Dog Huckleberry Cream Ale. It had a thick head and light carbonation like English cream ales and the...

    Missouri 82, Illinois 73 POSTGAME

    The thing that disappointed me tonight was Illinois got back into this game by driving to the basket and completely abandoned that tactic down the stretch. Also, I would like to understand what constitutes a pivot foot and traveling in basketball today.

    At the half, 11 fouls on Illinois, 4 on GT. 10 FT's shot by GT, 1 by Illinois. Those stats need to be reversed in the second half.
