Get a winning football program and we will double football ticket sales. In the 80's Illini routinely sold out 70,000 stadium. It ridiculous our football ticket revenue was 25% of Wisconsin. Keep in mind this was the 5-7 season.

Too lazy to look it up for entire year....

Have we had the lead at half in any 2022-2023 quad 1 game besides 37-34 against Texas and 31-29 against Virginia? or quad 2 game?

I looked further and there have been close half time scores in several games.

There was a Post-Dispatch article that appears to have been taken down. The headline in my Google feed said something about Illini cheating. Fran Frishilla disavowed, and blamed the reporter for how it was reported. Did anyone read it before it got taken down? Did anyone catch what Fran said?

I have been reading the stl today paper for the last 15-20 years online and didn't see anything like that as i sure would of read it and probably posted it here .......If it was there then I missed it but i usually read anything Illini....
I used to talk back and forth through emails with a reporter named Stu D. who covered the illini for a good while and i would of emailed him for more info , but I;m drawing a blank on this subject......

If you know how long ago this was , then I can go to the archives and see..............

No idea or concern what Fran Frishilla or McCaffery has to say about Illinois

when you click on the link you get a 403 error message not found.........I would think parties listed by franny raised 9 kinds of hell ,including Rick Barnes.......

click on quote tweets above to read comments saying a journalist is the cause of all this .....hmmmmmmmmmmm

The funny thing is it's down on twitter also after 224.2 K viewings...........224,200 views leads me to believe somebody put a bug in somebodies ear aboot slander and such.........

Franny has always let his mouth overload his candy arse..................JMHO

If you read the comments the majority of posts lay the blame at the feet of an ambitious journalist................But I stand by my opinion of franny.......He had some stuff come up when he was the chief analyst on recruiting , i think for espn , but I;m not fully sure of that ......cloudy memories , but something sticks in my head aboot franny being a chatterbox ........

Rick Barnes has coached for 45 years and doesn’t break rules.
@dandakich
& I were talking trash (we usually do) about “old days in Big Ten.” Very surprised this writer didn’t call me to clarify until he wrote story. Very disappointed.

@dandakich

You worked with and for Rick. Why would you accuse him of anything like that? It’s sad to see the lengths some of us in the business will go just for a few extra clicks or eyeballs.

further down in quotable tweets it ends up where some doofus brings up Illinois " corrupt as hell giving players cars , etc "

That hit my Google feed earlier and was taken down before I read it as well.

So that's that.

Disappointing that RJ didn't bust out, Hawkins wasn't consistent, the Mayer experiment had very mixed results, Goode's injury, Skyy's fizzle, Perrin's short stay, and UP and Down and losing in the first round.

Some good things - Sencire. Ty's rebounding. Shannon was mostly very good. Some big wins early in the year. Epps better than expected.

Finger-crossed - We get at least everybody except maybe Shannon and Hawkins back.......but would love to see both of them here one more time.

I may be the only one, but I now cringe whenever I hear we are taking a bunch of transfers, and when I see the latest transfer we have interest in. I want to see RJ playing like he did down the stretch today. I want to get to know and like next years team because most were here this year.

I know, I know....... "It's the nature of the game now." But do we have to like it?

Well season's over can finally say it. Dain, Epps, Mayer, TSJ, Hawk, Lieb, made it known before game to coaches and teammates they are planning on leaving. A bad showing for NBA teams might change that but I highly doubt it.

Harris and Melendez - will know after player meetings. Goode, Rodgers, Moretti back for sure. Excited for the off-season.

Sad group of guys this year...never believed in themselves or the system. Surprisingly not bad character guys either which makes it weird.

Cheers to the new age of basketball. What a strange world we live in.
