RE: next year, I do not have any doubt at all that we will improve significantly ... but we're 11-20, so uh, we better. The crappy thing is that as of a few weeks ago, I was honestly thinking we could spend time in the top 25 next year and be a dark horse for the Big Ten with a favorable schedule and/or some lucky breaks. Now it's looking more like we will be a Bubble team unless Kofi has an even larger than expected impact and our guys get back to playing like they were during the winning streak. I am NOT discounting the latter as a possibility anymore, but it's seeming depressingly less likely. I just keep praying they will look in the mirror, think about what it means to be a Fighting Illini basketball player and all the greats who have worn that jersey before them and come out with a drubbing of NU ... a fan always dreams, and I will never give up on them, lol.
