    6 blocks for Illini made the difference. With decent FT shooting we win by 20.

    Illinois 99, Rutgers 94 OT POSTGAME

    Kind of like Egwu. He was raw in the beginning but ended up as the heart and soul of the team. Giorgi has obviously worked on his FTs and can't be considered an easy target to foul to put him on the line. His moves to both the right and left make him hard to double team, as we saw in the OT.

    And bucket night at Cochranes so we could kick the bucket all the way home. Also the augie and doggie night with wide mouth augsburg with a hot dog for a buck. This was our fine dining in 1978. Fish sandwiches at Deluxe at 9am before an 11am football game. They used the same grease from the...

    And it seems like the more muscular players have had poorer shots after the muscle building weight training. Finke is a good example. His 3 pt shot disappeared. Now at GCU he has lost weight and is running the court and making 3s again. Fraziers shot seems to be in a slump and DMW throws up some...

    I was an early donor for the SFC renovation. The pitch was that we needed upgraded facilities to compete....oops. Last year the pitch was for the Ubben renovation. The pitch again was we needed to upgrade to attract recruits and to compete.... I laughed at the latest attempt and also replied no...

    The facility is used for more than basketball. No AC meant that it couldn't be used during the summer. Now there are concerts and other events during the summer that never had been booked before. The sound system, lighting, video board were also great enhancements. All in all it was a great...

    What is the biggest win in Illinois history?

    I was at that game sitting in the top row of the C section. The place was packed and went nuts after the win. For a brief moment we were #1. Of course losing 4 of the next 5 ended the hope.

    No. Her penance is coming to games with me for the last 26 years and wearing o&b to every game.

    I started at Illinois in 1977 and I have been saying that since 1978. The 0-0 tie with Rich Weiss as the qb was supposed to be the bottom, but it got worse.

    We live 28 miles from Chicago and it often takes more than 2 hours of bumper to bumper traffic. We can drive the 165 miles to Champaign in 2.5 hours with one stop in Gilman. I'd much rather go to Champaign than ride my brakes for 2.5 hours to get to the city with no parking. I have to admit...

    Based on the ill timed coaching search that should have been started instead of extending Cubit and wound up with rejection by all coaches desired the next search will wind up with another failed wish list. Lovie wasn't even on any list. Ron Turner connected Josh with Lovie at the last minute.

    And don't forget the sideline interference calls and ridiculous timeouts and refusal to play Bailey and O'Toole. Ironically Zook is the special teams coach for the Packers. Remember that we were only 2 plays from winning every game.....
