    Check out all the player comments and how they’re congratulating Tyler. The players love him and I’m sure he’s been studying dads game planning for more than the last few years. He came off the bench to demonstrate what was expected in the first couple of years. He knows dad’s expectations and...

    I don’t agree with this, AT ALL. I’m not a fan of using never or all. Do some cheat to get ahead? Absolutely!! But it isn’t a prerequisite for success. I’ve achieved what I have in the market and in life on the up-and-up. My success is from using the intelligence God gave me. Maybe I’m an...

    Looks like we found a use for the blues. Our record is atrocious wearing blue on game day.

    He was a major presence in Italy his first year, before getting injured. Iirc he scored 32 in one game and had a ton of confidence. I’m always hopeful he can work his way back to some important spot minutes and become an asset. If nothing else, he has to be beneficial in practice.

    Take Plummer this weekend if he wants to come and move on from Miller. I wanted Adam back, but a bird in the hand is better than waiting for an unknown. In Brad I trust!!

    We’re having no trouble getting the attention of some highly sought after recruits. I hope the big dogs continue to struggle; no matter what conference they’re in. That includes the top Big Ten teams. Let’s show AJ Casey who can give him the best development and success.

    Illinois 91, Ohio State 88 OT Postgame

    If he hits that shot his legend would only be that much greater. He’s already our ONLY first team All American. His career highlight reel is too much to believe. Could you imagine him hitting that shot with the entire country watching it?!!!!

    3/12 Games

    The logistics of the NCAA tournament make it nearly impossible to delay. Too many employees, hotels, supporting cast members lives etc. The Big Ten is fortunate enough to be in the host bubble already. We are the most protected by not having to commute and re-enter a bubble. While there are...

    Pregame: Illinois at Wisconsin, Saturday, February 27th, 1:00pm CT, ESPN

    Let’s not forget, he says he hasn’t been sleeping much lately too. I’m sure he’s a pretty tightly wound right now. Let’s cut the man some slack. He’s been through hell this week, and quite frankly, all season. I’m sure it’s all a little overwhelming with what’s ahead of him the next month...

    Illinois 73, Northwestern 66 Postgame

    Yes!! BU needs to play the players he sees fit. He knows his talent better than any of us. He sees them in practice daily, talks to them on the sidelines during the game and knows what he’s trying to accomplish with his lineup at any given moment. He has his team on a six game winning streak...

    Illinois 77, Nebraska 72 OT Postgame

    Obviously, you have a personal dislike for AC and/or his playing style. He’s an incredibly talented freshman with a high ceiling and steep learning curve. You can’t get experience and comfortable from the bench. Play him for his spark and let him learn. We’re going to need him come playoff time.
