    Illini Volleyball

    Watched the whole match. Illini completely dominated the defending national champs at times, won the third set 25-10.

    12/4 Games

    Memphis losing should ensure that they drop out of the rankings, which will help us get back in (wasn’t sure if we would at first since Ohio State will likely leapfrog us)

    Pregame: Illinois at Iowa, Monday, December 6th, 6:00pm CT, FS1

    This is the type of game that we’ll need to win if we’re gonna truly contend for a Big Ten title. Will set the tone for the conference season.

    Let's beat Rutgers Friday and take Michigan's place in the top 25

    Is it wrong that I'm rooting for Michigan to get smoked by UNC?

    Pregame: Illinois vs Notre Dame, Monday, November 29th, 8:00pm CT, ESPN2

    Read the rest of my post. I’m not exactly confident either. But in terms of level of talent on the team, yes we should beat them. I really do think we’re better than what we’ve shown recently, but our guys need to figure out how to play to that level ASAP or things will get ugly

    Pregame: Illinois vs Notre Dame, Monday, November 29th, 8:00pm CT, ESPN2

    Norte Dame isn’t a particularly great team. We SHOULD beat them. But our performances as of late don’t inspire tons of confidence. Fingers crossed this is the game where our guys wake up.

    Missed the game…what happened to Frazier and Curbelo?

    11/17 Games

    This week has the potential to really turn into a Big Ten bloodbath (if it isn’t already). OSU has to play at Xavier tomorrow, and Purdue plays 2 ranked teams this weekend.

    Marquette 67, Illinois 66 Postgame

    I’m not gonna panic, I still think we’ll be really good with Kofi. But it’s so frustrating how EVERY season we seem to have an early momentum killer against an inferior team. Also, when was the last time we actually won one of these Gavitt tipoff games? I can’t even remember winning any.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Arkansas State, Friday, November 12th, 8:00pm CT, B1G+

    IMO we need at least 2 of Frazier, Curbelo, and Hutch back by next Monday to beat Marquette. Hope we can get someone back for Friday’s game.

    11/9 Games

    So with Kentucky losing…gotta think we move into the top 10 next week right? Assuming we win Friday of course.

    Illinois 14, Minnesota 6 Postgame

    Wow, crazy to think we could have very well been 7-3 or 8-2 at this point had we just taken care of business late in games.

    Illinois 14, Minnesota 6 Postgame

    You really never know what you're gonna get with this team. Seams like we can beat anyone or lose to anyone in the Big Ten. But man, if we had just won the games that we should have won, this could've been a special season. Bowl hopes not dead yet!

    Kofi Cockburn to miss first 3 games of season

    Is it wrong that when I read this, my first emotion was relief that it’s only 3 games?
