Agreed. One of the best recent conference hires. The BT has some excellent recently-hired coaches who seem like solid guys: BU, Holtmann, Hoiberg, Howard, Pikiell come to mind.I really enjoyed listening to Chris Holtmann's press conference. He seems like a good dude.
The 1980 NU football team was referred to as the Mild Cats. They turned that around. Nebraska the jerkers, IU the Loohsiers, Maryland the Turdpens etc.. Life goes onBy referring to our team as "The Biting Illini", as they called our allegedly dirty-aggressive football teams in the '80s.
It's really incredible, these shooting shows put on by slimjake before the games, 35 3 pointers in a row, and he does not shoot that much each game. This team is so deep and talented, we can really make a run this year.
OSU vs Mich...
Saw a lot of 1:1 ball. Hurt us the first matchup, MSU was able to score like this as well.
Liddell shot a lot on the outside vs Dickensian and Kofi. Didn’t see much post up. Would play pick and roll to cover Liddell at 3 pt line, or run him off. Long 2s I’d be happy with.
Like Duane Washiington game. Very 1:1 though. Stay with ahrens.
I would think ILL will be focused for this game.
Fun to watch and impressive. I’ve not charted Jake’s shots, but I don’t remember him getting that many 3s from the corner though. Seems like most of his attempts come from up top or from the wing.
A #1 seed in the tourney? According to all the analyst Illinois, Ohio state, and Iowa are still in the conversation for a #1 seed battle with us! Depending on the remaining games and the B10 tourney! I need W's throughout! And based on the brackets right now we shouldn't be really tested until the elite 8! But don't take any opponent lightly or we'll be going home early!Nope, and he should not be. Let the team continue to grow, and Ayo heal. Big ten tourney at the earliest. Nothing changes with a W or L in Columbus.
Is that Curbelo dancing around across from Damonte? What is he holding? I have so many questions.
Plus if we were to lose without ayo theb we would likely remain a one seed in the tourney, if ayo plays and we lose we would fall to a 2Nope, and he should not be. Let the team continue to grow, and Ayo heal. Big ten tourney at the earliest. Nothing changes with a W or L in Columbus.
you may be right, but I think if ayo is cleared which is what it sounds like he should/will play. I think regardless we stay a one, but we will likely need to make the semis or finals in the bttPlus if we were to lose without ayo theb we would likely remain a one seed in the tourney, if ayo plays and we lose we would fall to a 2
