    No, because we're Loyalty and we panic at the drop of a hat. It's

    Better believe my petty self is wearing this with pride today.

    Sometimes shots fall. Sometimes they don't. That, combined with a total lack of defensive adjustment, did us in.

    He may have, but I think we'd need to see sustained success at LUC without Krutwig before we could say that's the case. Someone might hire him before we could see that, but that's the nature of this time of year in college basketball.

    *winces and crossesfingers* I hope not Coleman. I really like him and think given the time he could contribute.

    No thanks. I'll pass on them making the tourney ever again in my lifetime.

    Fair enough. I still think that the issue is you're asking these young men to potentially risk an injury that could ruin their career before it even gets started. While that could be said of any of the tourney games, at least there's the shot at a natty making it mean something. I'm not saying...

    Loyola Chicago 71, Illinois 58 Postgame

    I'm adopting them as my team from here on out. If it can't be Champaign, it might as well be Corvallis 😁

    Thank You

    I agree, but I think it's something that can trickle down, too. That's the benefit to having guys that stick around more than one year. They can pass down the way things are done and how the team should care about each other. That's invaluable. This season wasn't a blip. We'll be back for years...

    It's cool from a fan perspective, but I'm sure that they're moving teams out as quickly as possible to preserve the bubble. The fewer people you have, the more likely it is to be secure. Also, I'm not sure you want future NBA draft picks risking injury for pick up games. We'll just have to see...

    Thank You

    2020 was rough in so many ways. This team was a bright spot. I'm disappointed in how things ended, but I'll always love this team and their vibe. It made this winter so much easier to handle. 🧡💙

    Pregame: Illinois vs Loyola Chicago, Sunday, March 21st, 11:10am CT, CBS

    I need our team to read all of these predictions of it being a close game and come to play like they did in Ann Arbor. That was supposed to be a close game, too, and we all know how that turned out.

    I agree. But I still hope seeing us go on bothers them. It take some of the sting from losing to them earlier out of it for me. I love our team as it is. I wouldn't trade them for anyone.

    They showed Tilmon covering his face (presumably crying) as they left the court. Mark Smith was hanging his head. I hope the knowledge that they could have been on a 1 seed keeps them up tonight.

    It depends on what tests are being used. I thought the teams were being tested daily. If they're using the rapid tests, those come back in an hour. The issue is that they can have a higher false positive response. That's why they're usually paired with PCR tests which take a few days. With all...
