Dan, I know you usually post the past UC game attendances. It seems that when we get even a halfway decent opponent in there, we outdraw the Hall. Hoping for a good crowd and an Illini W. I'll go with:

Auburn 65
Fighting Illini 81

Section 121. Looking forward to my first Illini game at the UC. Seen a Blackhawks game and a Bulls-Pacers game (both wins for the home team). Time to see the Illini win and have the Madhouse on Madison rocking!!

230. If we lose this one, I'm boycotting the UC for awhile. Last year's loss was a painful experience

I've had tix a couple of times and, ashamedly, always decided to be lazy and stay in Champaign instead of driving up for the game. No excuses this year though, I'll be there on Saturday!

Auburn is BAD. Our shooting has leveled off and we always struggle shooting at the UC anyways. I expect an ugly one with BP driving and getting fouled being the difference.

Them 55
Us 63

Crap. Good to know. Have been trying to save on my cable bill (live in NJ and BTN is extra), but guess I'll have to splurge now! At least I feel better doing it with a good season underway.

Auburn is a terrible basketball team that has lost to Winthrop (67-74), DePaul (76-80), Dayton (63-73), Rhode Island (72-78), Boston College (49-50), and Murray St. (59-79).

Illinois bounce back with a double-digit win.

I will be in attendance with 4 others in Section 329. I hope the crowd is ready and help the guys play an energetic game. Looking forward to it.

Go Illini

I really hope JG stresses getting to the basket for this game. We traditionally shoot extremely poorly from 3 at the UC and that is because we generally aren't used to tight rims.

That being said I don't see a way we lose this game and if we do then the media will jump on us a being frauds, big time.

UI - 73
AU - 61

(Removed an incorrect post.)

This game is on BTN. If you don't get BTN, you can't watch this game.

As always, please do not post about links to watch the game.

Thank you, and Go Illini

Yeah, hopefully the heavy minutes guys come ready to play because this is a great opportunity for the low minutes guys to get on the floor and show what they can do.

Sounds like we'll be well-represented in the crowd - Illini wins 78-53.

I know this may mean nothing but just the recent posts by BP and Joe on twitter just gives me this feeling that they have a different attitude this year, and won't just give up.
Illini: 85
Auburn: 70

What has been our FG% or 3pt% the last 4 or 5 games we have played in the UC? I don't think it matters in this one because Auburn is terrible but I just wanted to see how bad it was?

Our poor shooting might be in part to having so much time off between games. We were shooting very well in the beginning of the season when we had Maui and a few other games close together. The extra time off could be throwing us off a little.

I will be in town, from Florida, in Section 110 with 6 family members. Seems like only yesterday, my kids and I were in Champaign for BP3, DJ, and Tyler's first game as freshmen, and they can't wait to see them as seniors at the UC. Wow, how time does fly...

Illini 83
Auburn 61

I somewhat agree, but what's your definition of a "blowout"?

Domination on both ends of the court...holding Auburn under 60, crisp passing and scoring 75+, quality minutes for non-starters. I think we all know what a blowout looks like. It's time to A: start destroying terrible teams and B: regain some swagger at the UC
