    Otters are social animals who like to play, don't build their own habitat, they use abandoned lair of other animals and spend a good part of their day cleaning themselves...They live in/around water. What does any of this have to do with UI? Students need a new supplier I think!

    I think as long as 2019 does not stagnate or regress, Lovie gets 2020. 2020 is the year that his first recruiting class are seniors. But we still haven't seen any 5th year guys, and they will competing against those guys in fair numbers on established teams across the league. Now how Josh...

    Game Thread: Illinois at Wisconsin

    You can't convince me that this is not a tournament team. They may not have earned a spot, but they could do some damage if they were invited.

    Giorgi Bezhanishvili, Ayo Dosunmu B1G Players of the Week

    Maybe this will be another "Illinois Rule" and the B10 will make a rule saying this can never happen again. We'll be the only ones in the record books for it. LOL

He will have replaced both coordinators in his first 3 years. On the basketball side, folks ravaged JFG for his refusal to make coaching changes. Can't...

    I think that the way our beloved played today, we could have gotten about 40 50 and 60 year olds from this site and played them even. Putrid. Uninspired. Disappointing. I understand that we have lost our top two RBs and WRs from a marginal offense. That doesn't explain the consistently poor...
