Still looks puffy in the face to me ...................Probably needs a 420 to restore that youthful vigor...............
Nah, just a stint on one of those old-time vibrating exercisers to get the blood flowing robustly. Man, PT Barnum was right on the money.

[EDIT: I'm really struggling to kill time before tip-off.]

Hope you enjoyed them. You likely won't see any more for a while. And, BTW, that's a lovely overhead drone shot of the Hall. Thanks for including that. Makes me homesick.

I see a best-selling beverage. Or a video game, in which a Kofi avatar dominates opposing big men and entire fleets of players clear out of the lane as he approacheth.
I was just looking at a bottle of Cockburn's fine tawny Porto and thinking how content I would be to spend an extra $10 if they would add Kofi's picture to the label.

That looks like great bulletin board material to me! Nothing like a little extra motivation to ground a team into the ground. I'm sure the Orange Crush will be out in full force tonight!
I hope so me and the kids are sitting right behind them tonight. Way better than our usual seats. Look for the ZZ Top orange beard and my farmer hat lol

Maybe I just missed it, but it appears we've gone 6 pages of pregame thread without anyone prognosticating about Curbelo's status.

I agree about Painter but we are 3-0 against them the last two years while MSU has had our number. Painter has always had very big centers but we trumped that with Kofi.
I sometimes think one of Underwood's real strengths is his capacity for putting the right people in position as his assistants.

I'm familiar with Maryland, I lived nearby for several years and still in the mid Atlantic area. The Northern VA, DC, Maryland produces a ton of talent. But UNC, Duke and others are the preferred schools. They are Rutgers IMHO, but think they are UVa in academics and near UNC in athletics. They are not, their national championship was built on non-McAA veteran talent who developed into top college, border NBA talent. We need to start beating them like we should.

Speaking of which ---- still appears we'll be favored to win our next 9 games. Guessing Purdue on the road (Feb 10th) will be our next game as an underdog.

Would be excellent to win 7, 8 or 9 of these!!
Not everyone remembers that Deon Thomas is the only U of I basketball player to score more than 2,000 points. Just a thought when he discuss "great" centers in Illini history.

Looking forward to attending the game tonight. My first game at the State Farm Center since the Rona began. I am a little apprehensive since the last time I saw the beloved play Maryland, we blew the game when Damonte made a terrible inbounds pass at the end that cost us the game. Don’t remember the exact year, but it was heartbreaking.
I was at that game. Probably the last one I have been to. Must have been 2017-2018 as Damonte was a freshman as I recall. Looked it up Dec 3, 2017 92-91 Loss.

Just got down to Champaign an hour ago, getting ready for tip off. Discovered a very tasty beer from Urbana (I know), Riggs is good stuff!

Edit PS - First game since graduation in the Assembly Hall/SFC since '88. Many other sites, but not at home. Also, my daughter's, UI class of '23, first game in Champaign. Should be fun!
