Kind of wish GodBold and Penn could have had more time under Bollant and less under Law.  Law's a great recruiter, but Bollant seems like a more effective teacher and coach.

BTW, it looks like Amber Moore got a Big 10 Sportsmanship Award: http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/ill/sports/w-baskbl/auto_pdf/2012-13/misc_non_event/2013-All-BT-Teams.pdf
