All the blanks are filled now. Looks like I get BIG+ for a month and a day if I want to watch every game.

Michigan with 7’1”, 6’10”, and 2 6’8” guys in their rotation so will be interesting to see who gets minutes against them. Of course Trent and Belo ate them up with their quickness last year and don’t think they have added an answer to that problem. Maybe two bigs and three quick guards?? Great to have a variety of pieces.

Yeah, we have a Swiss Army knife of a team and that's flippin' great.

The BTN+ games are usually broadcast a day or two after the game.

My recollection is that this is more of an exception than a rule.

Looks like I get BIG+ for a month and a day if I want to watch every game.

According to this, BTN+ games are archived for later viewing. Depending on how badly you need to see the first exhibition live, you could wait until a few days after the first exhibition to sign up, watch the first exhibition as a replay, and then cancel after the 11/26 game.

Does anyone know if you can get BTN or BTN+ without any sort of live tv service?

Edit: LMGTFM, no you can't.
BTN is still the cable channel, you'll need some sort of service to access.

BTN+ is now called B1G+, that's a separate pay streaming service. You don't need to be a subscriber of any other service to access B1G+, you just need to sign up & pay $9.95/month.

Illinois has 4 games on B1G+, the pay online streaming service. 2 months of B1G+ service is required this season for Illini Basketball if you would like to stream all the following games live-

Illini Basketball on B1G+
Sat, Oct 23___St. Francis (IL.) (Exhibition Game)
Fri, Oct 29___Indiana (Pa.) (Exhibition Game)
Fri, Nov 12___Arkansas State
Fri, Nov 26___UT Rio Grande Valley

$9.95 per month, select the Illinois option, and cancel immediately after the Nov. 26th game if you only use the service for Illini Basketball.

How parents feel about the staff. I'm happy to see they're all happy with the way things are being run

Looking at our non con, I don't see many games we shouldn't be favored in before January. Arkansas will probably be the closest one, followed by Marquette then Arizona and Mizzou. But I think we can win all of those if we play to the best of our ability, something we struggled with last year.
