Is this how to Wisconsin?We have a veteran and experienced team which should pay great dividends. The projected rotation the Illini will consist of a lot of 3, 4, & 5 year guys.
Who wants to do the math for me and figure out the average age and years playing college of this roster?
I've had these for 5 years now I think. You will get and email the day before usually with your digital tickets.20-21 Ticket question (maybe not the right spot, please delete if not allowed)
I bought the mobile pass on a flyer last year and of course never got to use it. I was thinking about it for this season, but I guess I still don't really understand it all. I get that the seats move and you're notified a day or two before the game, but does anyone know if you can transfer if you can't attend?
Agreed. I see BU starting williams, the veteran who has started multiple b10 games for in favor of a player who has not played a single game for him.I think Hutcherson is still a bit a wild card. He hasn't really played in a game in 2 years. I would be a bit shocked if out the gate they throw him in a starter role with huge minutes.
I think BU starts more conservative.
We are unusually deep, so it should be interesting to see who begins to stand out from the bench guys.
I think you take a wait and see approach on Hutcherson, and if he is actually healthy and plays like we envision, then we are an undoubted powerhouse. You add a 6'7 wing who can do it all, there are no holes.
Belo is definitely that dude. It may be multiple guys who take the last shot, but put the ball in Belo’s hands and he’s going to make the right read. Either score it, throw a lob to Kofi or find a shooter. We will be fine.I have to say, this is usually not a good thing. You want a go to guy. I think bello is that dude by the way.
Interested in this take. Why do you think we will be so much better defensively this year? Obviously we are keeping some key pieces, but AM and Ayo are big losses on the defensive end. Where do you see us improving?BU's got some tinkering toys this year for sure.
This team is going to absolutely lock teams down defensively. I would not be even a little surprised if we finish as the top defensive team in the nation.
I don't see the early season machinations this year that we've gone through before, gelling later in the season. This team should be lights out defensively from the first tip. The kind where the scrimmage and early season tune ups could see 90-40 type scores.
And as has been mentioned several times this year...if Kofi improves his look to pass even a little...maybe 3-5 looks per game...with the open shooters we have.. Look. Out.

I’m not sure we know that “Hawkins will be a problem for most teams on offense.” He has looked the part a few times in limited minutes, but he still shot 35%/23% over the course of the year. I’m certainly hopeful your assessment plays out, but by no means is it a sure thing. I will say I do believe he will be a big contributor before he leaves, just have to wait and see if this year is the year.Defensively at least, Payne at the 4 and Kofi at the 5 should shut down ANY teams inside game. And we know Hawkins will be a problem for most teams on offense. It will be super interesting to me to see how Underwood taylors the rotation to fit matchups.
Great point on what Chester brings for guard intensity. I think Trent and DMW already have it. But I like to think about what a year watching Trent and DMW, while getting coached by Chester, could deliver from the freshmen a year later.Trent, DMFW, and Kofi will anchor...and be even better. 'Belo will be better. Chet will be coaching the guards. They are going to channel his dawg. The only "question marks" are Hutch, Plummer, Payne, and CoHawk, if you choose to call them that. They all have experience and CoHawk showed flashes last year.
Finally, with the amount of depth and lineup option BU has, they will be the freshest team on the floor almost every minute of the game. Depending of course on the matchups and subs.
