    Illinois Football Recruiting Thread

    We've been underpowered in the line and have seen how that has worked. I'd rather have the QB protected and have time to see around his defenders...than not being defended. Besides, you need big guys to open doors for Reggie and Company.

    Basketball Uniforms

    Converse All-Stars? I wish. Those were too expensive. I usually either had Keds or P.F. Flyers.

    Does Peters not run because he can't, or because he wasn't asked to? Dunno. Just asking.

    In Their Honor

    There are people who want to make this happen. Why didn't it get any press? I guess if there were any media at the trustees meeting, they didn't consider it worth reporting. So basically it's up to us to share it as much as possible, and take whatever other actions you think should be taken...

    In Their Honor

    This was presented to the Trustees just a couple of weeks ago. In addition to this, a number of people spoke in a similar vein. I love that the title is a direct dig at Rosenstein.

    In Their Honor

    No otters, no eagles. No lions, tigers or bears. And alas, no longer any Chief Illiniwek as we have known him. But the next step is here, In Their Honor! It's a beginning. In Their Honor!

    Illini Football 2019

    Illinois has instability in its program? Perhaps. But how is Illinois any different than anywhere else. We're itching for transfers. Well, where do they come from? Programs with instability? That said, Tommy Stevens. They're in mild panic in Pennsylvania, or at least the fans are. Franklin...

    Looking to buy tickets through the ticket resale sites for football this fall. Is it better to take what I see now, or wait until later, for prices and seats?

    OK, back in my day, the guy with the ID bought the pitcher and then set it in the middle of the table for plausible deniability. Which is where the glasses were put, under the theory, "No, offisher, snot by beer."

    NBA / Illini in the Pros Thread

    Bulls...or Balls In Chicago, they may be the Bulls. But in China, it's Chicago Balls. Which come to think of it, might be a good team name. Goodbye Alma Otter. Hello, Illinois Balls.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Indiana, Thursday, March 7th, 7:00pm CT, FS1

    Northwestern, the only private school in the B1G and full of self-important twits from northern Illinois...and as someone from small city downstate, they just annoy me. I don’t know if you call it a rivalry, but we should never lose to Northwestern.

    Penn State 83, Illinois 76 POSTGAME

    Reardless of how many points we scored, remember that Penn State scored 83 against us. Rutgers scored over 90. They did it the same way, driving on the basket. Underwood had better find a way to stop that. And now I go off to church. In Pennsylvania. To eat crow.

    B1G Next Year

    I really want to play--and beat--Iowa State. My mother-in-law's family is all Iowa State, and they know I am Illini, and lately they've been nice but I know there's a bit of condescension. That needs to be fixed. :cool:

    Wisconsin 64, Illinois 58 POSTGAME

    Rutgers did that straight drive into our defense too. That’s one way other teams will beat us if we don’t find a cure for it.

    Giorgi Bezhanishvili, Ayo Dosunmu B1G Players of the Week

    With all the talk of Giorgi overcoming obstacles, consider Feliz. His upbringing in the Dominican Republic wasn’t as difficult as Giorgi’s, but here’s a kid who played ball in dress shoes when he was a kid (and takes sneakers with him to give to kids when he goes home).

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Monday, February 18th, 7:00pm CT, FS1

    I just want to say (so I'm going to) that we're going to hear a lot about this team "winning ugly." Uh, that's our style. Creating havoc, chasing down the ball on the floor, breaking up their plays, Feliz perfected evil eye, Trent's appearing out of nowhere. I could go on. But like the man says...

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Monday, February 18th, 7:00pm CT, FS1

    My thoughts exactly. The thing is, independent observers are showing more faith in Illinois than many Illini/fans. I was concerned that tOSU would look at the tapes from the Rutgers game and figure out how to put 90 points on the board. But either (a) they didn't figure it out, (b) they did...

    I hope they show up again in coat and tie, and wear "Fighting Illini" jerseys. Every Girl's Crazy 'Bout a Sharp Dressed Man I think they can do this. Every game is going to look "dirty." These are the #HavocIllini. Nobody wants to play us. I heard it on the B1G Show last night. You can't prep...

    I have no idea whether tOSU has progressed, but the Illini--the Fighting Illini--have been transformed. Comparing Illinois' performance versus the Buckeyes is so last year...literally. Giorgi is no longer a foul machine (although every player can have problems vis a vis a particular other...
