My view is who cares. Let's win the BTT tourney, make the Elite Eight and in 10 years no one will remember who won the reg. season title.
Oh, I'll remember.

There is nothing I know of that says we can't hang a banner showing the records with us on top, assuming of course we win Saturday and scUM loses one, and saying B1G champs
Or maybe include this year in a list of "First Place" seasons.

I have been an Illini fan for more years than I care to admit, and this is one of my favorite teams ever. I see a lot of similarities in the teams from 89 and 05 as far as team chemistry and the obvious affection they have for each other. I really hope they have the same level of success (or better lol) I want to sit at the games next year and hear "national champions" every game. I am so happy we chose Brad over Archie.

a team needs to strike when the iron is hot. We are clearly in the top 10, and are quite possibly the best when we play our best. Thats rare . Nothing short of a Final Four will make me really happy this year. we will lose 4 of our starting 5. This year is special and we need to carpe diem

I think it's safe to say Grandison and Miller are both returning starters at this point.
Ayo gone. Kofi probably gone. Trent probably gone. Any of those three back and/or DMW...gravy.
Definitely agree though, this year is special.

Elite Eight? I think we would all be massively disappointed if we only got to the Elite Eight this year - FF or bust! We are clearly one of the top 4 teams in the country

This would be pretty unfair to the team. To be "massively disappointed" over one game at that point...which is likely to be against a very worthy foe...is a little dramatic.
Massively disappointing would be a first or second round loss. A loss in the Sweet 16 would be pretty disappointing, and a loss in the Elite 8 will suck. As will a FF loss or another Championship loss.

This team has FF and NC potential for sure...but it's a gauntlet. The Elite 8 would be a great season when you put it into perspective of the last 4 years.

I have a good feeling about this team exceeding expectations.
