    MSU Changes Name

    I didn't know Dan Gilbert was an MSU alum. This may have been discussed already and if I missed it, apologies, and beach houses for each of you, paid for by Dan Gilbert, the billionaire. Did Gilbert hire away Beilein away from SCUM to coach the Cavs, knowing it likely wouldn't work out, but...

    I saw his parents interviewed on a recent Big Ten segment on Ayo. They seem pretty awesome.

    Illinois 75, Indiana 71 OT Postgame

    I see you didn't actually watch the game. He and GB are the ultimate team players for adjusting to different roles since Ayo and Kofi showed up. They still play their hearts out every game. Trent took over tonight when other things weren't working.

    Bogie Redmon passes away

    RIP to Bogie, one of my first heroes of Illini basketball. I began following them in the 64-65 season and what a fun team it was to watch! I'm attaching a link for those interested so you can check out the roster, results from that year, etc. A couple of notes for the younger fans who may never...

    Bret Bielema Intro Press Conference

    Just watched the presser and I'm impressered! I grew up about two hours south of Prophetstown in farm country and very much like him in many ways, so his comments about growing up with a work ethic really hit home with me. I too was a douchebag until about 40 years old, and then I finally got...

    Illinois 83, Duke 68 Postgame

    I'd like to nominate "a funny-bone deal." as a phrase that someone who's likely over 50 would use to describe something that looks like something much worse than it really was. Those of you under 50 can use it too! Example: "I decided life wasn't worth living anymore, so I took a deep breath...

    Chicago Cubs 2020 Season

    I hope he's not done, because I think he can still contribute. I've never once cringed, even this year, when I see that's he's the starter. But I can't blame him if he wants to give it up and go home and spend time with his wife and kids. He's earned it.

    Chicago Cubs 2020 Season

    The announcers said in the next inning that catch/trap calls are not reviewable in the infield. Can't find it mentioned in the rules, but here's what Wikipedia says about it. The following plays will be reviewable under the system: Ground-rule doubles Fan interference calls Boundary calls...
