I am not a Purdue fan, but man I feel for you guys after that ending last night. You had them.

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Texas A&M will hire Buzz Williams in the next few days. Rumors of LSU interim coach Tony Benford joining his staff too. I’ve heard anywhere from $3.5MM to $7MM per year for Buzz. I think it will be no more than $4MM but I guess we will see. Thrilled to get Buzz back to Aggieland. No disrespect ...

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Well, the Illini have regressed to where they were before that spurt in February maybe, worse. Losing that game in Madison took a lot of wind out their sails, Frazier is probably playing hurt, Nichols continues to be the most ineffective effective appearing player ever. One thing I cannot understan...

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Illini lost for the 15 consecutive time to Wisconsin, it was close one, 64-58 in Madison. The Illini will soon put an end to Wisconsin' streak, it's coming, next season for certain. If they happen to meet in the BTT it'll end earlier. I'll make a bold predication after they put an end to Wisconsin'...

Which probably would force the NCAA to waive the one year sitting out if a player transfers. I doubt they want to lose talent before they have to.

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Nice to see Illinois finally break through with a big win Tuesday. Outside shot at getting to 9-11 in conference if they don't lay any eggs. Side note, Illinois' schedule this year ended up being hilariously difficult. As of today's KP ratings, they will end the year having played just 4 teams outs...

Yeah I don't think he ran him off. He is one that would have actually helped this year. But, next year if the two bigs both are cleared we are gonna have some depth.

Sure did, him, Griffin, Ayo, Frazier there's something there when they play with confidence and aggression. While Maryland had the advantage in the front court, I'd say the Illini had the backcourt edge. Took Cowan out the game in the first half and late in the second half, so much better than watc...

Maybe seeing some improvement from the Illini? They destroyed Minnesota the other night, prior to that, hung around against Michigan and at Indiana, lost a heartbreaker at Northwestern. Think they'll compete at Iowa, read some postings about an NBA scout being at the Michigan game. Apparently he sa...

Oladipo/Zeller Hoosiers? Years are running together on me, but I think this is it. I would’ve guess one of the Wisconsin Final 4 teams or a Michigan/MSU team did it after (this would’ve been 2011?) but maybe this is right. The Wisky Final Four year was also the year that Kentucky started 38-0 or wh...

It sounds like they are going to get Cockburn. After flying in his handler to help with the visit. I have no problem with this. We've been getting probation results for the past decade anyways. The bad news however is Frazier's family is trashing Underwood on twitter now after he supposedly told hi...

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Illini lost, at home, to a Florida Atlantic team missing two of its starters, in the process of losing they managed to miss 50 shots. 50 shots? That doesn't even seem possible, I'm hoping this is the low point for Underwood however, it may not be. Not being fatalistic but, given they've regressed a...

That was my thought. Plus all the renovations.

My main thing was thinking how Kahn is a major donor and he seems to want to win, Blake Bortles aside. I don't know. Just what I was told.

Illini playing Missouri tonight, I'm certain the worst possible outcome will occur. Because that's the way it's been for the Illini - if something bad can happen it will.

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

Watched some of Illinois and Nebraska yesterday, I know the Illini are raw and young but, I'm seeing the same script as other games. Foul, foul, foul, went not fouling, give up layup after layup, cannot consistently make a layup to save their lives, not much change from the script last year. Do not...
