With Ohio State kind of showing their true colors of late I figured people would stop thumping their chest about losing a close game to them.

I think we're hungry to get this W, and fueled by the home crowd of the SFC (and O Krush), our boys will end up grinding it out. 70-67 :illinois:

I fully expect to lose this game and I'm surprised by all the optimism.

We're at home, almost beat tOSU on the road, just had a good contributions from our bigs in our last game, and we're only a slight underdog.. and you're surprised that people are feeling good about our chances?

Agree on all aspects, but we can weigh-in more how all that came out tomorrow morning.

I feel some folks would rather be right than be happy. Putting up a wall so they can say 'SEE I TOLD YOU SO!!!!'

I feel like we can win every game until we start losing lol. Hope the guys can bring it tonight because I'm going to Pequods to watch this game with some Illini friends.

Sports are more fun when you believe in your team. You should try it.

:thumb: Will be in attendance and hoping the guys can get a win. I have confidence that they can do it but don't see it as a given. Close game with the home and crowd advantage pulling this one out for the orange and blue.

A win here will go a long way towards holding this thing together--which I've arbitrarily pegged at staying over 500 for the year. There are definitely 6 more wins possible on the schedule & this is one we need to get. I hope our jump shots fall and we win. :shield:

I'm surprised ohio state is a favorite at all. If you delve deep into ohio state's advanced statistics for road games they shouldn't be favored. An Ohio State win would be an upset and imo the Illinois players and coaches will have to lay an egg to lose this game.

A lot of people here do this. I went on a massive rant on here a few years ago complaining about all our own fans who expect us to lose game in and game out.

Southern Illinois..
At this point any victory is like winning the Big 10 tourney for me. I'll take all we can get and happy to watch it happen....Go Illini..!!!!....:chief:

Krush factor?

Okay so the Ohio State egg toss didn't end so well. Hope for their sake it's not a metaphoric harbinger.
