Apparently we don't have anyone that can handle pressure at the end of these games.

Never under estimate the stupidity of a Brad Underwood coached team.

This is why I haven't posted in two years.... I can't watch illini basketball anymore. They always find away to lose. I call it the Bill Self curse...

Freaking refs gave the game away. Unbelievable. But we seriously needed a timeout that last possession not one on one

This team can NOT string together two good halves of basketball in the same game. This sucks. I hate all of it.

I don’t know what the solution is, but I have no faith in Underwood to figure it out.

When they put that stat about not coming back from a 14-point deficit at halftime since 2007, I knew we would lose.

I just knew it...

Well, the final score makes it look like a good game, but a terrible first half vs Miami followed by a terrible second half vs Maryland.

Consistency. Is it that hard to ask for?

Wasted another couple hours to get pissed off on a Saturday night. May have to check out until next month.

"Kofi played 0 seconds the last 6 mins of the close Miami game, and he played 0 seconds in the last 5 mins of tonight’s Maryland game." - @TVallese

This is inexcusable.

Why do you call a timeout... your last one with 2.1 seconds to go.. why.. I dont understand.. so he can miss the free throw on purpose? You gotta be kidding me.

A lot of empty possessions down the stretch, and how can we sit Cockburn at the end when we cannot score and need his rebounding?
