Hopefully we don't wait until we're staring at a 15 point halftime deficit to go beast mode on these guys this time.

Both Nebby and MSU have a full week this week. It would have been nice to get one in though
Technically, MSU has home games on the 9th and 13th, so they could theoretically squeeze in a 3rd on the 11th, since they're supposed to try to make up the games anyway. It'd be tight for them, but it's not like there are any other schedule gaps for them to add games anyway.

Why can`t they put Nebraska or Michigan St. back in the mix , is their schedule to compromised to squeeze a game in this time frame ? From one or the other ?

Exactly. I have zero sympathy for them. Fit the game in now or forfeit.

It‘s been reported that % will “likely” determine the winner. I’ve seen no official statement of that fact, but it was reported by the Athletic.

So I guess we have a 9 day gap till next game....would be nice to reset NW game to next weekend.... FWIW alot of Mich fans were also eager to see our game, but that hope is over for next week.

I got a chuckle from this post on Michigan board...
"...Illinois gives me pause as a Michigan fan, mostly because of that monster of a human being in the paint they call Kofi Cockburn. That guy is one of the few people in college basketball that can bully Hunter Dickenson on both ends of the court. Hunter seems more fundamentally sound but Kofi has such raw power and talent he could own anyone he plays against."

Yes I would, I don't think a another team should get punished for another teams problem.
Right but that's the point. Illinois has 3 cancelations, all due to other teams. What if two of those don't get made up and we end up 14-4. Another team ends up with all 20 played, 15-5. By your method, we would lose based on two games cancelled, due to Covid issues on other teams.
