Illinois 68, Michigan 53 Postgame

#176      
Can someone please explain to me what I’m missing. I use the Yahoo Sports app on my phone for scores and standings. After the Nebraska game I noticed we were below MSU in the conference standings even though we were +1. No big deal, probably a mistake, right? Now after beating these losers (Michigan) we are +1 again but still behind MSU in the conference standings on Yahoo sports app. What am I missing?
An A-Hole is in charge at Yahoo.

When BU sat Kofi with two fouls in the first half against MD I never questioned it. I was like “Yeah it’s all gonna change in the second half!” And it did. When coach sat Trent so he could catch a breath in this game I was “What is he doing? Get Trent back out there NOW!” And then Trent came in and saved the day. I am starting to think maybe BU knows more about his team than I do. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I sat next to a Michigan fan today in the stadium. He is very disappointed about their 3-point shot today, but he is still very supportive of Juwan Howard.

I’m not ashamed to admit I thought John Groce was the answer after Year One, and had my doubts about Brad after Year One.
Actually… never mind. I’m super embarrassed.

Lol well he is a nice guy and lives in Chicago. Michigan is his alma mater.

This was also decidedly not the game to turn the keys over to a true freshman at PG for the first time.
True, Coach should have been doing this before Trent hurt his shoulder and Curbelo hurt his whatever. Just a few minutes here and there.

Pru - sometimes your posts exhaust me. I’m not concerned with Walken gifs, hallucinogenics, or neighbor lady counts… but then you post stuff like this and I remember you’re also a knowledgeable fan with quality insights (along with some wild stories), and I appreciate you again.

Ok … I actually enjoy the neighbor lady stories. I L L!
lol...................I will be posting in the old age thread in the chat room sometime over the weekend.....a lot of things have happened with my ladies and it will be entertaining to hear .....I guarantee it.....

Hometown hero from the days of old, tv-genic, probably not horrible at X's and O's but not a savant, recruits ok early on, horrible at player development, overpaid, and likely to be a huge public relations disaster for the AD when they are inevitability, painfully, and far too late shown the door.
And from Chicago. I always wondered how things would have been had he chose orange and blue instead of maize and blue. Maybe it all worked out best for everyone?

I think I said this before, but IMO Podz will be that guy if this turns into a Belo medical redshirt situation, god forbid. But throwing him to the wolves in that spot too soon would be insane. Good minutes now is a good sign of turning the keys over later.

I thought Groce would be a good coach as well. I don't think I ever had doubts about Brad Underwood though; his record was too consistent to completely lose it here. I figured he'd just need time. Who knows what we actually look like three years from now?

And by wolves, I mean playing point on a team with this much talent. That's a whole, whole different proposition than more substantial minutes at any other spot.

And replying to myself yet again because why not, we won, and it's a red wine kind of night.. that's why Belo is such a special talent. He did that on a similarly talented roster last year and blew the doors off. When he's back, whenever that is, we're going to be pretty freaking great
