Iowa. Ugh. OK. On to the next one. But first, let's see if this bottle of Scotch is bottomless or not--going to scrub that second half from my memory with the cleaning power of malt whiskey.

We gave up 104 points to Iowa and took the L. This team is just not good which is the first time I've said that this year. We are literally the worst team in the Big Ten.

People who have been touting how competitive Illinois has been in losing need to realize that it doesn't matter if you lose every time.

Iowa killed us on the boards and shot 40 free throws.

Frazier can't do it all himself, but by golly he'll try.

I wish our team had more heart.

Love the Illini
awful and embarrassing losing to Iowa at home they are every bit as young as Illinois. It has been a long time that I have seen a team make as many dumb mistakes as this team does. At some point they need to show they are learning from their mistakes same thing every night. Number of fouls on a nightly basis is awful. Really appreciate how hard they play but at some point there has to be something besides that. Very frustrating game to watch tonight.

Unbelievable

I cannot believe we blow a 20 pt lead at home to lose. I just canít believe it.

I am really wondering when we will get our first victory in the big ten. This is awful

How many B1G quality starters (right now, not future B1G starters) are on this roster?

Current: Black & Frazier, that's it

Underwood is playing with 2 B1G quality starters and some key minutes from Williams. The cupboard is bare, folks. This is going to take a couple years.

If BU can turn around two 0-6 teams in back-to-back years, just put him in the HOF.

We're just to thin up front. We need to get a big next year.

I know we are going to get better, but it really hurts to realize that we are the bottom of the BIG in both Football and Basketball. I will continue to try and retain my positive outlook, but this really, truly sucks...and sucks a whole lot.

Up 20+ on the second worst team in the Big Ten and they lose at home.

This is completely unacceptable. How can a coach not draw up plays against a 1-3-1? This is like watching John Groce coach. Oh my gosh, they just changed defense; guess we should just pass around the perimeter before chucking up a contested 3

We've become Rutgers.

I knew this would be a transition year....but Dear God, this is painful to watch. Still not happy with how Smith is being used-he’s playing timid because he is not being used correctly. He’s far too talented to be used strictly as a cutter in our offense. Need to change something, BU. Things clearly are not working!

No more Finke. He canít defend, he canít rebound, he doesnít t have a post game, and now he canít shoot at all either

I think Finke needed to play more this game. Sick maybe?

In any case... how did we get so bad at major sports? 0 for the B1G so far this year. How did we get to the bottom of the league in football and basketball? It seems that would almost be impossible to accomplish but, here we are.
