    Jan 3rd Games

    Does Michigan leapfrog us in the rankings tomorrow?

    Jan 2nd Games

    Duke vs FSU cancelled today. What’s up with Duke having insanely bad luck with players on their opposing teams getting COVID? People on their forum are calling for the season to be cancelled, but that’s easy for them to say.

    12/18-12/20 Weekend Games

    I'm pulling for Gonzaga. I just can't bring myself to root for this Iowa team...against anyone.

    Pregame: Illinois vs Baylor, Wednesday, December 2nd, 9:00pm CT, ESPN

    I'll only be happy with a win. If we play tough but lose a close one, I'll still be hopeful, but I would much prefer a win.

    11/30 Polls - Illinois #5 in AP Poll

    Illinois is ranked higher than Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, UNC, Villanova, and MSU. Never thought I'd see the day.

    11/29 Games

    Baylor beats Washington 86-52. Is Baylor that good or is Washington that bad? I'm guessing it's both?

    11/25 Games

    Man, with all the games being cancelled/postponed I find it hard to stay optimistic about this season. It will be a miracle if all our games actually happen. Just one case on our team = multiple games not being played. And with Scott Drew testing positive I'm not sure the Baylor game will...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Agreed. Surprised more of us aren’t talking about this. If Illinois issues another stay at home order (which seems likely), what happens to our sports?

    Illini Basketball 2020-2021

    Not sure why Wisconsin is ranked above us, but still very cool to see us in the top 10 ahead of Duke and Kentucky.

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Elephant in the room...am I wrong in still having some worry that the pandemic might once again ruin our season? I know sports are happening now, but COVID numbers are at a record high and seem to be rising exponentially. It may only be a matter of time before some states start imposing...

    Minnesota 41, Illinois 14 Postgame

    I wasn’t able to catch the game, but weren’t we missing a ton of key players due to COVID? I would probably attribute this game being so ugly to that more than anything.

    Wisconsin 45, Illinois 7 Postgame

    Not in the least bit surprised. Anyone predicting a win here was setting themselves up for disappintment.

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Friday, October 23rd, 7:00pm CT, BTN

    Hate to say it but I think we get blown out here. Wisconsin won’t be looking past us this time, in fact they probably have this game circled. Would love to eat some delicious crow

    Big Ten Football to Start October 23-24 (CFB Thread)

    Not sure if this has been addressed, but is the Big Ten season happening completely in isolation or will it still be part of the national scene? As in, will Big Ten teams be included in the rankings (they aren't right now) and bowl/playoff games?
