    Pregame: Illinois vs Wisconsin, Saturday, October 9th, 2:30pm CT, BTN

    I like the Galloping Ghost uniforms and we have historically had some success in them. Oh well!

    Pregame: Illinois at Virginia, Saturday, September 11th, 10:00am CT, ACCN

    I had a dream, or maybe technically a premonition because I think I was awake at the time, around 3am this morning. That the Illini had 17 points in the 3rd quarter and that was good enough to be leading at the time (by how much, the premonition did not reveal). Take that FWIW. But I suspect...

    Pregame: Illinois vs UTSA, Saturday, September 4th, 6:30pm CT, BTN

    LOL at this fact check. When I saw the first post, I said to myself "Self, I am certain I saw that LSU self-imposed a bowl ban last year and did not in fact lose to UTSA in a bowl game." Self and Chalmers were right. :)

    Illinois 30, Nebraska 22 Postgame

    “WeatherfordForMVP” is a nod to the sarcastic chants for the ‘04/‘05 teams calling for Steve Weatherford to be named MVP. He was very good and went on to the NFL, but calling for your punter to be named MVP was an insult to the remainder of the team, and that was the goal with the chants...

    Pregame: Illinois vs Nebraska, Saturday, August 28th, 12:00pm CT, FOX

    I only see two near-certain wins (UTSA and Charlotte), one should-win (Rutgers), four should-be-competitive games (Nebraska, Virginia, Maryland, Purdue), two should-lose (Minnesota and Northwestern), and three near-certain losses (Wisconsin, Penn State, and Iowa). Assuming we take the near- and...

    Illini Basketball 2021-2022

    I believe it was the last time an Illini player got paid to take pictures with and sign autographs for fans after throwing out the first pitch. :D

    Illini Basketball 2021-2022

    The last time an Illini player got paid for taking pictures with the fans afterwards. :)

    Heh, you’re right. Still bet there’s also a rule. Pro or pro-aspiring players are ineligible is my guess.

    Is there a rule against Ayo participating? :) I honestly don’t know the answer, but I’m sure there is.

    3/8 Polls - Illinois #3 in AP Poll

    The irony of leapfrogging Michigan while the B1G denies the Illini co-champs tastes just a little sweet.

    Game Thread: Illinois at Ohio State

    Wow. That's ****ing awesome. Weird to say, but all things considered (and a little hype pulsing through my veins), I can't see how the Illini lose today. Again? Too far?

    Ayo Dosunmu suffers facial injury

    Caveat: not a doctor, and haven't gone back to watch a replay, but here's my professional opinion (heh): The play where Ayo got injured did not look like a concussion-inducing type play to me. It looked like a strike to the face, not the brain-rattling type of collisions that cause concussions...

    2/21 Games

    I still think that if tOSU loses, even by 1 in overtime, we switch places with them and are #4. What we're talking about is a #5 convincing (dominating?...what's the right word here?) win on the road against a team that plays great at home, versus a loss by either the #3 or #4 team. I think it...

    2/21 Games

    Posted in the postgame, but more relevant here: "I really want to win the B1G. A final four run in the tournament and a national championship remain low probabilities, even if after a game like yesterday's they look more possible. The path to a B1G Championship is right there for the taking...
