I've noticed you've been jonesing for a live chat for awhile now. Haha. Maybe today you'll get your wish.

Looks like I won't be going today. Sick child curtailed our whole weekend. That's how things go sometimes though. Will be faithfully wearing my orange and watching from here. Go Illini!

man i sure hope for the sake of the program in Chicago that we win and win big today... the UNLV game last year was one of the most depressing games I've ever attended

What's really fun is that all the routines up in Chicago are just like the ones down here in Champaign. The announcer is the same, the pre-game video is the same, they still call it the "House of Paign." If you just closed your eyes during the game you wouldn't even know you were in somewhere other than the Assembly Hall.

Losing this one would be a lot worse since Auburn isn't nearly as good as UNLV was. Auburn is better than UIC was, however! We are taking the middle path.

Live chat is infinitely better than a game thread IMO.

I just don't know for sure why we lost them. They were the best part of this board IMO. I hope it was due to superstition and now we can get back to them.

Rod Bramblett, voice of the Auburn Tigers, says that they must play their "best game of the year by far." Says that the team is "still trying to find its identity," could take "more than 3 or 4 years to rebuild this program." They just built a new arena, apparently, which is attracting more recruits, but Auburn is "definitely still in the bottom-third of the SEC standings this season."
