    i'm guessing Arizona would say that the official notice of allegations was only received recently. But yea, not like it wasn't expected forever ago and should've pulled the trigger then. But at least they didn't put all their morale principles on hiatus like Kansas did.

    Brad Underwood season wrap press conference

    I think that's a bit of an oversimplification. Just comparing the shot chart between the two games says OSU did something differently defensively that worked.

    Brad Underwood season wrap press conference

    Agreed. And there's a sound rationale to waiting anyway. let the raw emotion of the game die down a bit so you can more objectively evaluate what happened. it's not like you have practices going on where you can implement changes anyway. ultimately, i find the notion of "tell us your...

    Brad Underwood season wrap press conference

    considering he also said that he hasn't gone through the tape of the game, what would you expect him to say that you would find satisfactory?

    There's been a couple of junior people on my team over the years that I've felt that way about. Good people, intelligent, and hard working. will have a place somewhere, just not here. Was difficult to let them go, but it was the right decision. I agree, JFG definitely fit that mold. Makes you...

    I guess it could potentially happen to pj fleck. Maybe fitz but I’m guessing he’s only leaving nw for the nfl. Would’ve probably happened to kill if he didn’t have his health issues. But all those are speculation.

    At least in basketball, when was the last time a big ten coach was “poached” to another school outside the conference (ie at least a lateral if not a promotion hire without having a foot out the door already in the current school)? Belein is the most recent I can think of, but that was to the...

    Loyola Chicago 71, Illinois 58 Postgame

    C'mon folks. They had almost the same gap between the BT regular season and the start of the BTT vs. the BTT and the NCAA tourney, yet they were able to win 3 in 3 days against (presumably) better competition. Tired legs shouldn't be an issue at that point after a 5 day rest (and an easy win 2...

    Thank You

    a few years ago, I believe it was at the end of the 2015/2016 season when we only had 15 wins, i posted here on IL (unfortunately can't find the exact post as the search doesn't go back that far). It was a dark time to be an illini fan. Essentially all I said was, as long as we're not cheating...

    i don't follow the NBA nearly as closely as i used to, but a lot of the discussion on Btownbanners saying that he's on the outs at Boston anyway, and that's a big reason why he's consdering taking the IU job (actually, they're now saying it's close to a done deal and should be announced soon)...
