So I haven't watched Virginia play yet this year. My question for those of you who have seen them is this - Does Virginia have a two man game? I am concerned that they may have a two man game. How do we defend them if they have a two man game?

I'm going retro here. In 2005, we followed-up the amazing & emotional Arizona Elite 8 "Dick Enberg" game (which I consider similar to the UCLA comeback victory this past Friday night) with an easy victory over Louisville in the National semi-finals. I'll go with something similar here.

69 ILLINI
63 Wahoos

(Honorary captains: Efrem Winters and Ralph Sampson).

When Skky made that lay up and the foot work My Jaw hit the floor. He additionally looks lighter than fall camp. Man he's gonna
be special, let's enjoy his time in a Illini uni!

Good Belo move like how did he do that.

I also was peeing at one of the 3 games and I looked to my right to see a monster diamond earring. As I'm admiring it, the gentleman turns and for a brief moment looked me in the eyes with some of the most unique, pretty brown eyes I'd ever seen.
Thank God you were talking about a diamond earring. I had to reread this a couple times to make sure we didn't take the craziest left turn ever on this board.

I'll be the loud as hell guy in the Fighting Illini TSJ white throwback at midcourt about five rows up in 15. Guessing there's a few of us that'll be dominant erupt in the Bud Light lounge...
NOISE, NOISE, NOISE!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoying these games! Would be interesting to see how Goode would impact these games as well. We have a great opportunity for a very special season, and it will be interesting to see it all unfold.

Also fun to see: Underwoods decision making and adjusting in games seems to have progressed greatly over the last couple of years. Always been a fan, but I used to get so frustrated when it would seem like we would come out doing the exact same thing after half time when the plan didnt work in the first half. We have ourselves a true coach, assistant coaches (including AF but we always knew that one), and a well rounded team! Did I mention we have a true opportunity for a very special season?

Thank you! Now lets get another dub today!

I'm thrilled with the UCLA win, that one will age well. OTOH, is it just me, or was that a career game for TSJ? If he doesn't go off with an insane 8 for 9 from 3, that game becomes a toss-up. Someone else is going to have to step up....
or not? TSJ looks like he could be another Ayo. The kind of player that's gonna play big throughout the season.
Love the toughness of these guys. Will be interesting to see how the team plays after a big win.

In another (car) forum I participate in....if a guy in the "room" brags about a girl (date, gf, wife, etc...) they are required to post pictorial evidence of the source of braggadocio....or it didn't happen.

We call it Rule #2.

The same rule exists for the girls and their boys.......but it's not as popular. :LOL:

Ok but given how inexperienced we are as a team, would we not take early season toss-ups against top 10 competition?

I'm also reminded of the 2005 squad. Contrary to false memories, Luther, Deron, Dee, Roger etc.. did not always have great games. But at least 1 typically 2 of them did step up in each game. I feel like this squad has 3-4 that can step up in any given game.

Anyone else worried about the 16 offensive rebounds they gave up? Some long rebounds but it seemed they got beat underneath a lot. There offensive style will always lead to turnovers and particularly with the team experience at this point but rebounding should be a strength (or am I just accustomed to having the bully?).
