They are out hustling us at every position, they are starting to get calls b/c they are taking it to us

How long are the Illini going to allow Rutgers to drive the lane with impunity?
Simple....it is by far the most effective way to play against an overplay passing lane defense. Hope you heard Cuonzo emphatically tell his players to drive it every time...at which point Mizzou took control of the game by doing just that. All the coaches ask their teams to do the same against the Illini. It takes a lot of expended energy to overcome that strategy...and so far the Illini are coming up short.

Rutgers shooting 56% so far. That seems about par for Illini defense this season and pretty much explains why there will be no post season play.

Is it a goal tend to slap the backboard on a missed block altering a bank shot?

When I read this at first I thought “Why LOL”... we are not in a different category from RU this year. They really turned it on right after this post.

What I’m saying is... the “lol” in your post is clearly 100% to blame for our halftime deficit.
Oops, sorry 'bout that (again, lol). Originally, my lol was just in the sense that I don't really root for anyone but IL, and - although there are plenty of decent teams out there (and I knew Rutgers was decent this year) -- I'm not sure how many of them have the look of balance and character the Rutgers looks like it has to me today …

Note: I just went out in the garage and sacrificed a chicken to remove the voodoo from that earlier lol ….

Nope, to me he always roots against us, you know he wishes he had gone to UK
I've never heard him root against us. Not one time. You are clearly misinterpreting him being neutral and doing his job with respect to both teams.
