Another game Illinois should win at home. But this season has me in a pessimistic mood.

Michael Finke OUT for today's game vs. Penn State. Suffered a concussion yesterday in practice. #Illini

At this point Underwood has nothing to lose. The season is lost and Teets can't redshirt. Put him in there for an extended period of time and let's see what we've got.

Sure hope Finke is OK. Concussion issues are nothing to mess around with.

Agreed, curious things happen all the time. His size will surely be missing, although his defense not so much. Smith back in starting line up? Guess burning question is which guys show up. Hope the ones with shooting eye.
Hard to venture a prediction, love to see guys win, but PSU needs this one really bad. If we push them hard, pick up some fouls and turnovers, we could be in a good place. If, being the key word. Keep Fighting Illini.

Finke has started every game this year. Without him tonight, we will have used 8 different starting lineups this year.

Finke is OUT tonight (concussion), so Eboigbodin gets his first career start.

I'm guessing Kipper's sinus problem during the Wisconsin game was hard to comprehend for a guy like BU. Seriously that is soft, a sprain or broken bone I get, but my sinuses hurt. Wonder if he sees many minutes tonight. Seems like he will have to with the absence of Finke

Would be awesome, but that usually happens to us, not the other way around.

I think that's the quickest whistle I've ever heard in a game.

Something crazy going on for me... watching two in-game threads and neither has a post since the game started.

Giod start. Black looks good. Kipper seems engaged. Frazie is Frazier. We’re hitting the boards. Now if we can avoid the scoring drought.
