Illinois 76, Michigan 53 Postgame

That's what struck me as well. UM looked shell-shocked, like the jv team taking on the seniors. We had our way with them the same way we did with NW and Minn in those earlier blowouts. It's the first time they've faced that kind of beatdown/adversity all season. It makes you question their resiliency. Now how will they respond against a physical MSU?
Yea. That's pretty much what Livers said in the post game. They were surprised by how good we are. And they couldn't match our intensity. We sped them up and they don't have the athletes to play fast. Game over.

Underwood mentioned a manager who they call "the juice" who helps get the bench hyped up for games. I think his name is Bobby... Anyway I guess he had a concussion for the MSU game and didn't travel... Need to cover that guy in bubble wrap and bring him to Indiana!!!

By the way, how does a manager get a concussion?
If he travelled to MSU then...

The best part of this game to me is that we we finally have a staff that can gameplan our way into wins.

Good read on Illiniboard about Xs and Os in win against Michigan. Basically, on defense - ice the ball screens and have big drop into lane. Michigan bigs not great shooters and that’s the only thing that leaves open. And on offense, in Ayo’s absence we went back to a “Horns” spread set several times with great results, where 4 and 5 start out on opposite elbows and 2 and 3 are in opposite corners. That set produced two Kofi buckets, a Trent driving layup, and a Grandison three. Good videos showing it all.

Excellent analysis. For this is what game film is used.
