Well, was banned for a few weeks from posting due to my outburst after the Penn State loss...that's on me.
Account was not banned, account simply went thru a brief muting for a few days.
I basically said no one on the team cares, the offense stinks, I won’t watch the Arkansas game & well lose by 15 in the first round… and…. well… I watched the game.
Delighted to report that the post in question ^^ is still there! Congratulations on your Round of 64 prediction, even more so because at the time on March 9th it was unknown who the opponent would be and you nearly called the final margin perfectly.
This board has been completely bonkers. That's all I gotta say.
Welcome back to posting! Go Illini

I took to waiting until the game was over and watching it if they won. Otherwise I’d watch the highlights.

This team was just bad for my mental health. My bracket even had them losing to Arkansas, one of the few I got right! People may forget that Arkansas was ranked in the top ten preseason.
Not often a season ends without wanting more. This one I wanted less…
But I’m looking forward to football and next bball season whomever is playing for us!

Sorry for the trouble Dan, and I should’ve worded my post better. “Banned from posting” & banned in general could get confusing. Probably a good call because I was very irritated with our team. Go Illini!

Alas young neophyte, he who hath been banned shall not speak of such ban, lest he face a ban thrice the strength,,,

I didn't mean this in a bad way. I think we were all similarly discouraged after the Penn St game. I'm just guessing the language had to be a little more colorful to warrant a ban. 😜

I really wanted Groce to be successful, he seemed like such a good guy. Heard personal stories to back this up. Seems like he's doing pretty well at Akron, which is probably about the level he should coach. Great guy, good coach, just not P5 good. Hope he continues to have success.
When I think of Groce I still think of his speech coming out of the Miami tournament loss. 21 minute mark, below. Also interesting to see the now 9 year old comments.

Those comments are interesting for sure and I’ll admit I felt the same way. If DJax or Juwan Evans shows up, he may very well still be the coach at UI.

Momentum in programs is a real thing.

I remain so, so happy to be out of the "if we're aggressive enough about our Harry Potter-like online worship of our savior coach, maybe 17 year olds will give us a rose at the rose ceremony" era of college basketball. God that was awful.

I was very surprised to see Mica Shrewsbury leave Penn State after only two years for Notre Dame. Once I saw following I understand the move.

- It appears he may be doubling his pay which is a good reason to leave.

- Notre Dame has although also a football school has had more basketball success under Digger Phelps and Mike Bray than Penn State.
Notre Dame: Final four once elite 8 5X (although 3X were in the 50's). Bray took them to NCAA 13x in past 20 years.
Penn State went 3X in past 20 years.

-Mica is from Indiana. Now, he’s heading back to his native Indiana, where he went to high school and college before spending most of his coaching career in his home state

Brought some really good offense sets with him which were borrowed from Thad. He did have Paul and Richardson to run them

This is why I stay out of the game threads, and post game threads (if we lose) until the next morning.
Frustration and whiskey are poor bedfellows.
