Helps us that UCLA and Baylor football both hosting rivalry games this weekend (TCU in Waco and USC in Westwood)
Stopped by the sports book at golden nugget. The guy said he had not had a single ucla bet all day but had a lot of money on the Illini! He was wearing an Illini shirt, so maybe he was a little prejudicedHelps us that UCLA and Baylor football both hosting rivalry games this weekend (TCU in Waco and USC in Westwood)
Pretty cool seeing all the orange on the strip. Looking forward to seeing how hard we invade the other sections
Thanks for reminding me of the West Virginia game where people tried to rationalize getting beat by 30 points because we had no chance of matching up with a team that finished the season ranked 13th and had one 2nd round draft pick.
There is absolutely nothing that has happened in the past is going to affect the outcome of this game.I think it's very difficult to judge last year's team because we were never fully healthy and by the end of the year, we were decimated. We hardly had a back court with Curbelo never recovered from concussion and Trent playing injured (and worse with an eye infection).
My sister, who does not follow any sports, is in LV for a long weekend. She told me there is Orange & Blue (and not the Virginia kind) everywhere. I told that she should go to the game. She said it's probably full....of Illini fans!
