Are you serious that this is better than the Illini teams Weber put on the floor? Weber's worst Illini team was his last one. That team would destroy the current Illini. Give Weber credit for what he's accomplished in his career. Underwood has a long way to go before he matches it.Have to laugh at all the Div. 1 coaches and assistants posting here with all the solutions to our problems. I did not see today’s game, but have watched every other game this year. The product on the floor falls short of what we would like to see, but it’s still better than Groce-ball or Weber-ball. We knew this year was not going to be what we want to see in Illini BB, but yet we insist on believing we’re going to turn into KY or Duke in a couple of years. Weber and Groce left us with fecal matter for talent, and it takes time to recover from that. Any other expectations beyond .500 for this year were delusional. I think that’s where we’ll end up, if maybe a touch above, with an eye towards a tournament team next year and beyond.
I’ll try to enjoy watching the games this year and not throw things at my tv, but I certainly won’t let our flagship sports define my outlook on life.
