Are you sure three wins gets us in? Bad time of year to go on a three game skid, and I don't know if there is any team in the B10 we can count as a win in the tourney.We're in a hole, but three wins in a row is still possible. Every "fan" that is locking us in the NIT already, should ban themselves if we make the NCAA tourney.
I can't imagine the amount of talent someone would need to be successful running this offense.Let's not overreact. Tonight didn't tell us anything new about this team we didn't already know. It's a rebuilding process and the talent is coming. More depth = more competition = better team.
Nunn stat line was better than MHs...without AS, would have been a blowout in 1st halfStarks takes the dumbest shots
Nunn killed us
Mav should not play high D1
Nanna has no idea where he is
Groce got crushed tonight. We do not stop baseline on a team that cant do much in the lane. We have no idea how to break a defense that doubles the ball on every possession. Just terrible. Ran out of TOs with 5 mins left. No pressure on a team with no guards.
All we can do! We've got a nice infusion of talent next year, especially if JCL can play some at the 1 or if we're lucky enough to land a guy like Lovett or a 5th year big.Honestly, I think with all the turmoil of the season, I would be ecstatic for us making the tourney. However, I am going to give Groce a mulligan for this year. If he had the team he had recruited things may have been different.
I'll just keep watching Illini basketball and keep rooting for them and not be nervous about the tourney anymore.
it is the same offense tO$U has used since 2006, Ohio used to beat Georgetown in 2010 and then Michigan in 2012 on the way to almost knocking off Carolina. You think all those teams all had better talent than UIUC? Talent is coming and it fits the system. Still need a pg and a big ...no doubtI can't imagine the amount of talent someone would need to be successful running this offense.
