    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (November 2020)

    I didn’t panic when Wright went to KU. We had Augie for one more year with Carter, Randle, and Pruitt inside for the next few years after that. We could “go get the next one.” I wasn’t even upset when Scheyer went to Duke. Seemed like a perfect fit for him. But when Sherron Collins...

    Basketball Uniforms

    The problem is, it is the right I according to the official brand guide. When using a one color version, this is “correct”. Football is cheating with their helmets and they are using a modified one color version in many places around the Smith center. It’s technically wrong, but it looks way...

    That I on the shorts kill me. They need to remove that from the brand guide immediately.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (June 2019)

    He was basically the best that Mike Thomas could land - which is more of an indictment on MT. I don’t blame John Groce for aiming high - he really thought he could do a great job, bless his heart.

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (October 2018)

    Yeah. My point was that we were “too involved”. Which is an odd thought nowadays. But, winning solves these issues. As much as we want to think Krush was rabid in the early 2000s, we actually had to call and personally recruit members in 2002-2003 to fill the floor seats. That was the year...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (October 2018)

    Krush got cited for Illegal (targeted) recruiting during the Livingston, Tyler Hansbrough, and David Palmer recruiting visits. We were essentially going too far over the top for these kids. We would surround the courts during practices, post signs over the entire campus, and station people...

    The new basketball uniforms

    The trend with Nike's uniforms seems to be going minimalist - The players are rolling up the shorts - less baggy and tighter fits. I would imagine that when we move forward, it will be along these lines. Tighter fits, shorter shorts, basic colors, less stylized. I am good with that as...

    The Tisdale diet plagiarized the original Nick Smith plan.

    FBI College Basketball Corruption Investigation

    Good comment on Bilas. I really like him as an analyst - but someone who has made his money from the NCAA and College Basketball - he is feeding off the animal that he is so "high and mighty" in criticizing. It's growing weary.

    Illinois 91, Rutgers 60 POSTGAME

    Yeah, we have to go 8-0. At 20-11 (10-8), we would look favorable with road wins at OSU, MSU, and Purdue at home. Then have a favorable showing in the tournament. Nobody is thinking about Illinois right now. We have a terrible resume. Think, we only have 3 top 150 wins at the moment...

    Illinois 91, Rutgers 60 POSTGAME

    A few other things that I caught... DaMonte is Frank's son, and pretty sure Jalen Brunson plays for Illinois.

    Game Thread: Illinois at Wisconsin

    Meh, he’s got a ton of money in the bank and he signed up for a challenge. This is what he wanted.

    State Farm Center Renovation

    I notice that this area is exactly the same this year as in previous years. If anyone has connections at the State Farm Center or with DIA - can you just request that they find a way to cover these seats up? I know they are folded in for expansion for other events, but they look terrible...
