Well hopefully Underwood passes on the we will play anyone anywhere mato so we can have a chance to get in the tournament. Just don't schedule Florida Atlantic technology school of blind again. I know he didn't have much say in this years schedule and definitely prisoner of the moment. Just have to win next year no ifs ans or buts.According to College Basketball Reference's SOS rating, Illinois played the 2nd toughest strength of schedule in program history this year. Behind only the '89 Flyin' Illini.
Well we also had better experience and players during those 2014 and 2015 years. 2016-2018 we absolutely looked to have more promise this year than those teams did IMOThose numbers are spot on kenpom is really good at basketball rankings. Good stuff
Yeah I'm sorry but we we're actually on the bubble couple of those years and the bigten was better at the top most of those years.
Understatement of the year.....he hasn't done anything to be a starter let alone get more minutes than AG or TJ....He's averaging 3.2 pts and 2.3 reb per game...I believe he had 4-5 TO's today and he ran away from that Reeves steal and dunk.Outside of Feliz, our PGs are soft.
Damonte might do small things, but he is absolutely brutal on the offensive end.
Finishing around the rim is kipper Nichols kryptonite.
Saying “next year” is getting really old.
If it makes you feel any better, the first four on that list are going to the NCAA's and three of those teams are ranked.A sampling of teams ranked higher than us in Kenpom
East Tennessee State
shhhh......you're disrupting the narrative with facts.If it makes you feel any better, the first four on that list are going to the NCAA's and three of those teams are ranked.
Furman could be an at-large team(on the Bubble) and Liberty just won their conference tournament and are in.
Not sure what type of season Fresno State is having.
Still are mid major s from one bid leagues. We still are at the bottom of the bigten. Narrative is we are right were we belong bc of who we played and how we played. #thisseasonsucked always next year....shhhh......you're disrupting the narrative with facts.
