I still have nightmares thinking about that game.
Does anyone know what the team normally does for Thanksgiving? It seems like it would be smart to delay the big meal until after this game but I am not sure how the players would feel about that. Need to come out focused so the bench can get into the rotation

Not sure I follow the comment but if you think Rutgers and ND are soft this year I doubt it. ND has only lost to St Mary’s, which perennially competes well in the WCC, and Rutgers has only lost a couple close games. Seems like they’re still figuring some things out too - just like us. But both teams are well coached and have enough talent to give us a lot of grief, especially with how discombobulated we seem to be lately. If we can’t get healthy and figure things out we could easily lose to both teams. The further we get into the season with injured PGs and not being able to practice together and get a rhythm together, the harder it’s going to be to catch up with other P5 teams’ growth. I’m afraid it could be a rough few weeks for Illini fans. That’s not to say we won’t be good to really good by the end of the season, I just hope we don’t dig our hole too deep out of the gate.ND and Rutgers at home. I doubt it. Would be very surprised.
