I wouldn't mind another Illini game or two this season, would you?
The goal this season may have been just to make the tournament, but now that we're here we might as well win the fucking thing.
The Big Ten Tournament will start on Thursday morning with the Illini taking on a familiar opponent.
It's the final game of the regular season and the Illini could really use another win to get to 9-9 in the conference. Oh, and for other reasons that are a lot more important than that.
The Illini are pretty much sure things to get to the dance this year while Iowa is fighting for its life. All of which means the Illini can't relax tonight if they want to leave Iowa City with a win.
It's Senior Day at Assembly Hall as the Illini faithful prepare to watch Brandon Paul, D.J. Richardson and Tyler Griffey play in front of the Krush one last time.
The Illini return home after two huge wins to begin a stretch of games against beatable opponents. Can they avoid the letdown?
The win against Indiana was fantastic, but it's in the rearview mirror now. How the Illini handle the games after that win will determine whether or not the Indiana win actually means anything.
Just what you want to see when you're not playing very well and need a win: the #1 team in the country.
It may not feel like it but the Illini have a chance to get to the tournament this season. To do so this afternoon's game is one they're going to have to have.
In our history the Illini are 55-55 against Michigan State, but that record was a lot better before Tom Izzo came to East Lansing.
Life in the Big Ten has already been rough on the Illini but starting today against Michigan it's going to get even worse.
After a pair of beatings from Minnesota and Wisconsin that have the Illini faithful doubting their team again, now is the time to restore some of that faith as we prepare to face that TEAM UP NORTH.
Nearly a year to the day that Brandon Paul lit up Ohio State at Assembly Hall the Buckeyes return to Champaign.
