Did Klee really author this post?  Is Klee's Gonzaga team really the number one team in all the land? Does Klee pull for the Illini anymore?  Maybe.

Hope he's having a great time and checks in with Meyers Leonard out there on the left coast when he can.

Go Illini!

Because Denver and Portland are practically neighbors? You might as well hope a current N-G writer checks in with Deron Williams when he can. Champaign is 200 miles closer to Brooklyn than Denver is to Portland.
