Sorry if there's a more appropriate place for this question, but does anyone here have experience with the mobile pass season tickets?

Looking into getting season tickets this year, and the mobile passes are an insanely good deal, but I'm assuming we'll be stuck behind the basket for every game and that wouldn't be ideal. I'm not worried about being in the nosebleeds, just don't want to be behind the basket every single game.

Got the mobile pass last 3 seasons. Each games seat changes alot but they were usually on the sides of court. We moved our seats each game last year because their wasn't a big crowd. Hoping this year we will have to stay in our assigned seats! The pass was totally worth it though for the price.
 
I was thinking about the coming year, I would think Kipper will be working on his handles, with his strength if he can get his handles and quick going he could be pretty good at slashing at the 3, and he can shoot 3's already.

I'm guessing if VerDunk is in a pool. He might of had a scope procedure or something with his foot. Man I wish he was getting in practice time 1 on 1 with OA..

Seems to be a little more going on that we know. If the late signers are to be contributors, I hope they are able to get extra work in somehow. Especially since we are starting practice later than most other teams this year. I know it’s because of the extra summer practices we had, but obviously some of the new guys missed most or all of that.

It's a bit concerning that we haven't heard much about Verdunk in a while. It makes sense that he didn't play in Italy even if only out of caution but we are a couple of months later and I was hoping some info would leak out about how he is progressing with his injury. Sometimes fractures of the feet can take a long time to heal given the stress they must handle. Let's hope we hear some good news soon.

BU talks about him and his progress in the video posted yesterday. Said that they are taking things easy with him and he is seeing medical every two weeks to check on progress. They want him 100% when he steps back on the floor to compete.

Who on the team is going to make the biggest leap from last year? What do you think?

I agree with Tev or Alan making significant jumps, but , maybe, Giorgi makes a big jump with now having Kofi down low that will allow his paint ballet to blossom and also allow him for more garbage baskets as the D will try to keep Kofi from rebounding...

Really, I expect EVERYONE to improve as last year was exciting but didn't result into more wins than losses...I'm planning on watching selection Sunday to see where the Illini are seeded, not crying in my booze once again...

Predicted #6 seed vs Belmont first round.
 
Ayo. I think others listed will show a nice improvement and be solid contributors. But I think Ayo is a lottery pick in next years draft.
I agree with this. And I'm really excited to see Kofi this year. I see no reason he can't at least match Kaleb Wesson's freshman year numbers -- 20.7 mpg, 10.2 ppg, 4.9 rpg.

I was a bit concerned listening to Piper talk about how the staff was concerned about the defensive problems in Italy. I guess the encouraging thing is they are addressing it. Maybe Gentry is the missing piece to implement a system that's more effective.

Praise for Gentry is sky high. Hope he turns out to be all that is being said about him. I suspect long term he will be an effective recruiter, but it could take a year or two for him to develop relationships. Texas ties are always good.

If we are talking from 1 year ago, I think Ayo. He improved so much during the regular season that if we use his end of year performance as the base line, I'm thinking Griffin.

Ayo will almost certainly be our MVP though.

Hurts when your 7 foot starting center wasn’t on the trip.
