    It could be. I'm more interested in tomorrows game than any Illinois game since Arizona State pasted them in 2012. Now that Beckman is gone, I can root for Illinois again.

    I have no clue which is why I am intrigued. Tim Beckman was a fucking idiot but he's gone. Illinois has blown the doors off of their first two opponents but that's Kent State and Western Illinois, I have no idea how they are going to look up against a legitimate power conference opponent. The defense has looked a lot better the first two games with guys swarming to the ball and causing turnovers. On offense, the line is suspect at a couple of positions and I thought Wes Lunt was way too careless with the ball last week. If he does that against UNC, Illinois will lose. I expect its going to be a close game and it will come down to whoever wins the turnover battle.

    fwiw here are me and shig's write up for the season before it start


    hood is the real deal, bug howard has really broken out and quise will be fine once he stops pressing things. defense has been drastically better but still isnt anything good. kicking team has been much, much better

    gave away the opener obviously. think this is the swing game. if we win (and look good doing it), i feel good about 9 wins and competing for the coastal. if we fuck up and lose, it could easily start a tailspin which ideally leads to fedora being fired.

    looking forward to it either way.

    Been waiting for an official Illini thread to start up on tmb...feel like it could be a great addition to the board...

    pumped for tomorrow's game...IMO, nothing worse than losing to Illinois in football these days

    headed back to the beloved for the 'skers game...green street...you will be mine

    I love that Groce is making the rounds like a conquering hero after getting a 145th ranked PG to commit.

    I'll never understand how Illinois sucks at basketball.

    Groce should be way more hated than he is. Should have been canned last year with Beckman

    I love Groce. Really hope he turns things around, but we've gotta go a different route if he doesn't make the tournament.

    Anybody impressed with Tejon Lucas or just relieved he's a PG that committed to Illinois?

    Little bit of both to be honest. He's really young and schools like Wisconsin were starting to show some interest. Could also be we haven't won a PG race in so long that whoever we get would be impressive.

    Anybody think JCL plays this season? Doesn't sound good from some of the writers.

    Got a few friends who have the ear of a certain NFL team owner. From what they say, don't think Thomas will be hiring another football coach. Then again, a week before the Lou Henson court announcement they said it would never happen

    This is a game they should win. Agree it's nice being able to watch the team without Beckman on the sidelines. Fleck or Babers have to be the guy no?

    so do i. hated spreading it out like that tho

    fedora's play calling is garbage. running the ball great and just abandons it completely in every drive

    also can't believe that retard didn't challenge the spot on the play before the big run

    They should have scored the first possession and that int was dumb as shit. NC is better because Illinois has no defense but lets not act like the orange shouldn't have more than 7 points.

    You know what's cute?

    When Illinois had UNC at their 1 yard line, I actually thought about them getting a safety.
