    Even more important is that we are #2 in the RPI.

    Mark Smith cleared to play for Missouri this season

    Maybe the lights in the SFC caused Mark's legs to become glued to the floor on defense. They probably have better lighting for him at Mizzou. Or maybe it was the orange seats?

    Illini Volleyball 2018

    The game last night was the best I've seen the Illini play defense all season. Great digs and great passes to Poulter, so she could do her thing. If they keep playing that well on defense, they can go very, very far in the tourney. Funny, I was reading about last year's recruiting class and...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (July 2018)

    When it came to Chicago under Lou and Jimmy Collins we were pretty close. Granted we always put the leg work in earlier and didn't swoop in late.

    Kevin Anderson

    This is the longest Wimbledon Semifinal match in history. Isner also played in the longest match ever, spanning 3 days, at Wimbledon. The last set went 70-68, LOL!!! Still a ways to go for that one!!!

    Kevin Anderson

    Isner now up 8-7 in the 5th set. Have to win by 2. On serve, so Anderson will be serving next game.

    Kevin Anderson

    Anderson breaks Isner again in the 4th set, but then immediately gets broken by Isner in the next game. Back on serve in the 4th set. 3-3

    Kevin Anderson

    He's played a pretty strong match. So is Isner. Just a very untimely double fault (only his 2nd), and he only has 9 unforced errors to Isner's 26. Isner is serving well though. Needs to dig deep.

    Kevin Anderson

    Anderson loses the 3rd set. Tough loss. Was up 5-3 with the serve to close out the set and Isner broke him. Up 8-7 in the tiebreaker serving and double faulted set point away. Time to dig deep and pull out these last two sets, KA!!!

    Kevin Anderson

    Anderson finally breaks Isner to go up 5-3 in the 3rd, only to be broken by Isner in the next game. Anderson up 5-4 in 3rd set with Isner getting ready to serve! Anderson misses a great chance to close out the 3rd set!

    Illini Basketball 2018-2019

    If he has another bad season, a lot of fans will be calling for his neck. Heck, there are people already that think this hire was a mistake and would like to see him gone. Personally, I think he should get at least two more years if not three to turn it around. But in college basketball...

    EJ is still a pretty solid OSU lean, correct?

    Biggest Recruiting Mistake

    Yep, Westervelt was from Richwoods. His younger sister also went to UofI. I rode home a couple of times from UofI with her before I had a car down there.

    World Cup 2018

    It really wasn't a "high boot", or dangerous play as would be the ruling from the referee. Walker went down low to head the ball out and Perisic got to the ball first. Perisic wasn't moving toward Walker, so any contact would have been initiated by Walker. Had Perisic been moving into Walker...

    Kevin Anderson

    Awesome!!! ESPN has already started playing the Isner and the USA angle, since it's been a long time since an American won Wimbledon. I'm sure they'll dig up some info on the NCAA link as well. A lot of beef and hard serving in this matchup. Anderson is 6'8" and Isner is about 6'10".

    Agreed. Matheny needs to go. I didn't have a problem with sending Hicks to Minor league camp in spring training due to chronic lateness. You still need to follow the rules. But the snitching and the old school "hazing" or riding is stupid. Not only do they have a lack of leadership in the...

    Should be a great game. Two very entertaining and talented midfields on both teams.
