I

I guess I am in the minority (again) but I find butchering a person's name for chuckles a bit disrespectful.

No disrespect meant. Just making a joke and playing off an old movie. I don't find it disrespectful when it's done in a nickname/joking manner. I do find it disrespectful when guys simply can't figure out how to spell Sencire or Mayer.

Just checking to see if there’s any other Loyalty folks in SoCal…?

Though I’m disappointed Illinois isn’t playing in LA this year with the B1G expansion, I’d still love to help organize a west coast Illini group for future games/roadtrips and Illini watch parties.

There’s also the upcoming invitationals at the awesome new Acrisure Arena in Palm Desert. While we aren’t in them this year, other B1G teams will be. I am so excited to see high level college ball here in the Coachella Valley and will wear my Illini gear with pride.

Any West Coast Illini fans are welcome to join!

Check out LA Beaches Illini Alumni Club on Facebook. I’ve joined these folks for Illini games in the past, but they often meet in the Hermosa Beach area, which is a bit of a haul for me from LA proper. But it’s a good group.

And yes, I cursed up a storm when I learned there were no Illini games at USC or UCLA in either football or basketball this year.
🤬😂

Hmm, good point. I happen to be someone that has a last name that constantly gets butchered, and it's never bothered me in the least, but it's worth remembering that I can't assume everyone else cares as little as I do...
So do you get called Morrrrrz rather than Morez???

Sorry, I meant to say in my post that I wasn't singling you specifically. There have been quite a few others who have been doing this since BH came on board and I just felt I had to say something.

I don't use it but the windows browser popped up after a reset with a "create your AI browser theme." This is what I got. It's not wrong.

this one with the pumpkin and tiger was a little baffling. And it looks like #3 is going to smash that guitar.

This one is surreal. I think that's Giorgi and he's either blazing up or blowing a tiny noisemaker. not sure what the capitol is doing here - though I did work there a million years ago.

The Giorgio one is *amazing*! Just need the good ol' Lambo in there somewhere.

I hear ya. OK, you apparently like music, wine, basketball, Illinois, and french fries (?). Illinois is the top producing state for pumpkins. Still working on the tiger. Do tigers like pumpkins? I know they like pepper.

I am in south Orange County but would love to attend game at Rose Bowl, Coliseum, Pauley Pavillion etc. I was hoping Illini would be sent to LA NCAA regional for basketball but it is has not happened yet (been waiting 11 years).

Was that Carey Booth dunking at the end there with one hand, with his head almost at the rim, while somehow also making it look like he was taking a Sunday stroll? That guy has got some potential… 👀
That is what I was thinking. How such a simple clip could just SHOUT at us and say "WHO WAS THAT?". I just saw crazy athleticism and got excited for the season. My fellow Illini, this is going to be a fun season. Talent is two deep 4* or better deep...as in our starts and our bench can start for almost any other Power basketball conference. That is insane. I can't wait to see what Brad does with this team. That might be the most exciting part. Having a coach that can COOK!

Its Time Cooking GIF

team is gonna be really good. 2nd team could finish top half
I suspect most of our games will be blowouts where the second team will get lots of minutes just from the scores.

Can anyone who has watched summer play, is Trey White looking like the future NBA player that we all know that he can be?

OK JG....might want to check your Kool-Aid...someone spiked it for sure. But your enthusiasm is noted and admired!!!

Last year's team proved to have as much depth as any Illini team. That next year's roster surpasses that depth of talent is something with which I would tend to agree. However, since I moved from the Sucker State to the Show Me state decades ago...ya gotta show me their second five could finish in the top half of the B1G. And since that will never happen, it is moot.

But I would agree with anyone who thinks the next two seasons should be a couple of the most interesting....as well as potentially the most glorious....in Illini hoops history. My fondest hope is to live to see both and enjoy every minute.

So, if you can't show us they couldn't, does that make what you wrote moot as well? 😯

I'm just being contrary :) Go Illini!
