Lose at Iowa, Ohst, Pstate, Rutgers, win all others including all at Home. Reasonable projections I think.
On the positive side there was no underage drinking since Lyle and his friends are all 28Another blast from the past: JaQuan Lyle.
I just looked at ticket prices. i wanna go but i am not dropping a grand to sit in the rafters. But lets get a top 4 finish so all of the fans that wait can go and the other half can go home!Purchased my tickets for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to the B1G tourney. First time going and really hoping to see Illini all 3 days of action. With how deep the B1G0 is this year, should make for an exciting tourney in Indy.
Bragg got kicked out recently...I had no idea the Lobos had both Lyle and Bragg. Wow. That would have been a hell of a class a few years back.
This is great, but man, I remember going to games and every single time the announced attendance was 16,618, a sell out. It was a foregone conclusion. Hopefully we are well on our way back to that.
On my phone, it’s difficult to bold text. However, just because pundits call it “Overachieving” does not mean it’s true. It’s only overachieving if it’s just based on hype. I saw we had the players and were going to make some real noise.Taken from a free ESPN article dated 1/28
Overachieving: Illinois. With Kofi Cockburn on the floor, Illinois is one of the best teams in the country. In those situations, Illinois has connected on 53.4% of its attempts inside the arc and held opponents to just 87 points per 100 possessions. Per the Chicago Tribune, a preseason Big Ten media poll projected Brad Underwood's squad to finish seventh. Instead, the program entered the week tied with Michigan State for first place (both 7-2) and chasing a top-eight seed in the NCAA tournament. Saturday's thrilling road win over Michigan was its sixth in a row and third Big Ten road win.
