    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (May-June 2018)

    🤨 Hey now, it’s not the worst place in the world. (Says woman who is terrified she’s going to have to don a “Purdue mom” shirt in a few years.)

    It seemed that way to me too.

    Larry Nassar and Michigan State

    I live in West Lafayette and our paper is a sister paper of the IndyStar who broke this whole mess. I remember reading the very first couple of articles about coaches in USAG. But past that I don’t remember much coverage until the last couple of weeks either.

    Larry Nassar and Michigan State

    Listening to the full testimony now. Her words about MSU are damning.

    Guess Izzo isn’t alone in thinking there are more important things.

    Love the Fourth and Kirby shirt I gave for Christmas! Well done!

    Coaching Carousel

    Feeling a bit guilty about this right now, too. I live 5 min from campus; Brohm's kids go to my kids' school. I both feel bad for all of my diehard Purdue fan friends and glad that I might not be alone in my misery.

    AD Whitman talks Lovie Smith

    I think Purdue potentially make a bowl game in year one of Brohm is contributing to the restlessness of our fan base. (Or maybe I'm just more sensitive to it since it's in my back yard.)

    Pregame: Illinois at Purdue, Saturday, November 4th, 11:00am CT, BTN

    So bummed to miss his game in my backyard. Will be bravely sporting the Illini blanket for HS football tonight and a soccer tournament with the youngest this weekend.

    Ross-Ade Stadium Question

    Row 20 is decent, but I'd still go for tickets that aren't in the end zone if you can get them for a similar price.

    Ross-Ade Stadium Question

    I wouldn't sit in one of the first few rows that far down. We were there for our high school game a few weeks ago, and I think you'd want to be 6-8 rows up at least. I don't know how they define youth. Two years ago we ended up getting tickets from stubhub that were just as cheap but much...

    Interesting on Holtmann's decision.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Northwestern, Tuesday, February 21st, 7:00pm CT, BTN

    Agreed. My kids go to school with Darrell Hazell's son, and I felt horrible for him the Monday after he was fired from Purdue. Their family's future is looking up though.

    Pregame: Illinois at Purdue, Tuesday, January 17th, 6:00pm CT, BTN

    This one is right in my backyard and I can't decide if I'm crazy enough to don my orange and blue and go. I fear total embarrassment.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (October 2016)

    It's actually a nice community to live in. But I grew up in Decatur, so... Campus, though, is no comparison to UI.

    Tim Beckman no longer a volunteer coach at UNC

    According to my Facebook memories, it's been exactly one year since we fired beckman (and fellow alumni were hoping for Thomas too). What a turnaround we have made.

    What they give you. The ones we have are west main 131. Row 26. We have 10 people so I'm sure we were a bit limited on options.

    Illini Football 2016

    I just bought Family Pack tickets for NC. My son has never been to a game, my daughter was 2 when she was last at one, and my niece and nephew have never visited U of I at all - can't wait! Hard to beat $127 for 10 of us, including $50 of concessions. It also offered me $10 tickets for Murray...

    Wow. I think I paid $59 for mine in 1991.

    Josh Whitman Named 14th Illinois Athletics Director

    Did we know he had been called during the last search? Like the article says - likely just courtesy - but interesting. I gotta say I loved being an Illini fan 5 minutes from Purdue when I picked this up!

    I agree. Gotta convince my husband. :) I've got an 11yo who has never been to a game at Memorial Stadium and I had already promised we would do it this year. But with teenagers, realistically, we aren't going to be able to make the drive from IN all the time.
