yep that was a great game

Not sure time of Gonzaga away win we had several years ago (Gonzaga bench Guitar Hero game). One of my favoriite games of last 10 years. Im sure it was a relatively late game.
 
Oh I think we played Baylor, starting to remember now. I do remember the Hawaii game.

I'm going to take a nap around 3 so I'll be ready to roll :D

Does anyone think there is some gamesmanship going on with the start time??

I assume this is a home and home series. Do we start our game at noon....
 
I'm admittedly an old fart. Who in the hell on Illinois' side of things agreed to this start time?? Sounds like a Mike Thomas or JFG move.
Speak for yurself this 9:00 start time (left coast) is great. I'll have time to get the dinner dishes done and get a 20 minute beach walk in with the dog, before my stomach turns into a knot and I start screaming at the TV for Tejon to quit dribbeling and for people to not throw post entry passes when a defender is fully in front of the target
 
We're already squarely behind the 8 ball. We have no quality wins, our strength of schedule even after these next two games will be sub-par and are already 0-2 in conference. We need to win both and go 10-6 in our remaining conference games to even have a shot. I suspect it will take 11-5 in our remaining conference games, as the strength of the conference is way down.

I agree that's probably what it's going to take.

Personally, I'd be content going 1-1 against UNLV and Mizzou -- preferably the win being against Mizzou. I think we go 0-2.

I think we'll need to go 11-7 in conference to get in. Must compensate for lack of quality wins, a really poor OOC schedule, and a weak B1G. It's the perfect storm this year, unfortunately.

BUT I could see a scenario where we win the BTT because of our depth... hopefully Eboigbodin can get a little bit more into the mix.
