Also, I stated that Gene Vance should have been mentioned on the best guard thread. Why are we leaving off the Whiz kids? They would have been national champions if not for the war.
My biggest complaint with these types of threads is that posters should not say that their lineup is the best lineup in UI history. They should say that it is the best lineup in their time as a fan. It is pretty easy to tell how old a poster is by what his lineup is.
also: Ray Woods!!! 1917 national player of the year. two big ten championships and 16-0 record in 1917 including a "retroactive" national championship.
Skip was born when the whiz kids played. I think he was at Illinois 62-65. My dad would take me to the Illini games at Huff before the Assembly Hall & every team had guys at least as tall as Skip....and skip thoren was in that whiz kid group. at 6-10 he was bigger than 99
%of his time. (im 56, but a bit of a basketball historian.)
Based on his stellar NBA career???
