Another beatdown on the road.  Will this team win a single conference game away from Champaign?

Just a hunch, but I think we might look back at this game as "the final straw that broke the Groce's back".

Still tickets available for Coach Grimace's latest Miss the NIT Tour!

Whine, whine, whine, excuse, excuse, excuse. Here's a thought, Coach -- a press conference in which you point out that you got your players to jump on the other team for a change. But that would probably require elite coaching.

Please play JCL at least 25-30 minutes. He is one of the best 3-point shooters in the country. Have Hill play 2 and JCL 3. Tate can"pass"-an 8th grader can "pass".Play Lewis more! PLAY YOUR BEST PLAYERS. Otherwise, why recruit higher-graded players? No wonder the best players won't come to Illinois. They see the pattern you use in "playing time".  You worry about "defense and passing." I would agree with your constant analysis if we were allowing 60-70 points a game! Go Ilini
