    Pregame: Illinois at Ohio State, Thursday, February 14th, 6:00pm CT, ESPN2

    That would be interesting because as the game was going on they would be nailing down the teams, seems like in the past years a few dark horses made the bracket in this case...but it certainly wasn't enough in our 1999 run from last (11) to the finals, but could that bump us up on the bubble a...

    2019 NBA Draft

    I don't see that as surprising at all, stats were about the same for last year at Illinois, but Leonard made a tremendous jump from Fr to So, so there was more potential upside to be had from Leonard, while Augustine started much better and growth was slower. Factor in the extra 3" & 20+ pounds...

    Oklahoma State Holds Open Tryouts After 3 Players Kicked Off Team

    /s....Was mostly playing on the accuracy of our conference names, any way you slice saying you are in 11th place out of 10 teams sounds like a middle school insult, while the Big 12 lies on numbers the other way.

    Oklahoma State Holds Open Tryouts After 3 Players Kicked Off Team

    Plus tied for 7th in the Big12, sounds a whole lot better than tied for 11th in the Big 10

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2019)

    I think you missed my point. I agree we shouldn't be waiting around for Whitney, he is a pipe dream at this point. But the implication that us saying no to Whitney or at the least showing him that we don't have spots, or him not having other options that are just as good or much better, or that...

    Yeah, if Whitney gets stuck having to go to Duke, Kansas, or North Carolina instead of Illinois we would sure show him & Chicago. /s

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (January 2019)

    straight up I agree...I think a twisted argument can be made that CB plays more years than KW & may be better total value, but I think there are a few too many assumptions in that argument for my sake.

    yeah it was bad, but for me this is about what I expect from Miami from my days in South Florida, so not sure where the TNM theme is applicable, more of the same.

    Don't take it personal. Once he had things sorted out with Miami, it becomes the low risk option for Jeff with the pending waiver needed to play at Illinois next year & the quicker/surer path to the NFL next year, add in last year's record for last year, and Illinois is still rebuilding...it is...

    closer to home - How about Kenny Battle & Ken Norman? Maybe we should be looking for transfers named Ken?

    Not too sure about the rules and actual numbers, but with 85 scholarship limit, 25 per class signing, and the small number of JR/Sr last year we may have had a few open scholarships we couldn't use on incoming recruits that were available for PWO, with us not having open schollies to hit 25...

    Notre Dame 76, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    With 5 seconds and a full court you take a decent shot when it comes, that was a decent shot. Could he have gotten to the hole maybe, would it have been a better shot, who knows, he possibly eats it. He kicks it out does someone even have time to get there shot off? maybe. You put the ball in...

    Notre Dame 76, Illinois 74 POSTGAME

    meh, we haven't been that good and we are going to lose close games until we get better. Last year we lacked the the upperclass scorer that can get you a bucket, we lacked a reliable big man that you can feed the ball to in the post and count on to score or draw a foul. The most talented team...

    Other than tonight his worst game was 15 pts. He tweaked his ankle early and also played a few less minutes, but Frazier isn't the problem.

    Redshirting Kane doesn't do squat for the next 3 years, it only helps in his redshirt senior year, if he returns...how'd that work for Finke or Black.

    Lovie Smith receives 2-year contract extension through 2023

    And just what is the statistic for stability? prior to White there were certainly some very dark times, but from memory I would say we were stable in 1983+ a couple years under White until his fall, coming off a Big Ten championship from a dumpster fire, he had been there 3 years + and at that...

    Lovie Smith receives 2-year contract extension through 2023

    Zook was on the hot seat the last year or 2 and saved himself, Beckman was packing his bags year 3 and pulled off a couple miracle wins to save his job, only to lead to the 1 season and mini contract for Cubit, so since the end of the Zook era we havn't been really stable.

    Yeah, that is basically what I'm saying as well, you don't need to worry about 2 deep, but if you have a major hole and can find a starter you go for it

    The problem with Juco, is we have a couple relatively small classes this year and next, we will need kids in this class and next in a few years, maybe you balance that with more juco in a few years, but I think we focus more on 1 deep holes at this point, if you don’t project them as a starter...
