AD: 'Believe in what is happening'

Both Illinois basketball seasons ended Wednesday, with first-round Big Ten tournament exits for both the men (96-87 loss to Iowa in New York City) and women (83-57 loss to Penn State in Indianapolis). March Madness will move on without them both.

Illinois athletic director Josh Whitman took to Twitter on Thursday morning in support of both programs.

As far as the Mens Hoops season..........I've been watching and attending games for almost 60 years...Rarely miss any Illini Hoops or Football games..........Season Tickets the past 4 years..............But..........I saw signs of growth. They were WAY more entertaining to watch. Rarely plodded the ball up the court like the past few years. I'm excited for the future. I think we have a Coach that will recruit and teach these young men. Not only the game of Basketball, but the Game of Life and what it takes to succeed!

Where's the Big Run? Horsepucky propaganda from the inexperienced AD. He's like a delusonal Tump tweeting out the latest delusion.

We. Will. Win.

The Latest Coaching Installment hasn't  proven to be the magical elixir right away as was hinted. The Illini have mediocre players at best and an ordinary coach. Good luck with that.
