My thought was Monte and Grandison splitting time at the 4. If Hawkins is B1G ready to take time at the 4 and is a better option there than Monte, that’s great news. Monte was pretty good filling in at the four last year, despite being undersized.
Not really concerned if he is B1G ready at the moment. A&T is not a B1G team.

Is it Wednesday yet? ... There have been some long off-seasons lately, but, man, this one has got to be the longest.

Wouldn't surprise me if we struggle offensively some in this game....first game of season and several new faces to incorporate into the offense may take a few games to click together.....what I want to see is how much we can dominate on the defensive end.....should be a huge mis-match all the way around, but dominating on the defensive end is what I'm hoping to see........84-46 good guys would do nicely

Four scrappy guards on the outside and Kofi...who needs a "4"?

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I’ve spent money on worse things! 🤷‍♂️

Illinois is offering three package types:
  • Lower Baseline package -- $105 (Seated in Sections 105-108 and 114-117)
  • Sideline package -- $89 (Seated in Traditions Club Sections 109-113)
  • Upper Baseline packages -- $50 (Seated in Sections 134-138)
Confused in the Desert.....so fans can attend the ILLINI home games?

Sure would like to see a green light for Ben and Hutch...and I am sure not nearly in the realm as much as they are itching to get it. Make no mistake, not having those two is a big downer and they may not be seen this season...or they might. Lingering injuries are a curse.

If some of the more dire predictions come true, I wonder if "Final Four" will mean one of the last four teams still able to play in, say, January?

Maybe I should find the door and let myself out.

Could get a little sloppy at times but with smart defense and avoidance of silly fouls and turnovers we should cruise with several players seeing action.
