Pulse of Illini Nation: Advice for the Basketball Team

We asked, and you answered!

NCAA Basketball: Northwestern at Illinois Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

The Champaign Room’s Twitter account (@Champaign_Room) sends out a tweet every Monday night asking a question and looking for the “pulse” of Illini nation with the hashtag #IlliniPulse!

With Illinois men’s basketball about to get underway with a few scrimmages, we asked what advice you would provide to this year’s squad. Here were some of the best responses!


Be better than Illinois football.

Enjoy your classes!

Beat the teams everyone wants you to beat.

Get rid of the cacophony of noises.


Just win something.

Join us again next Monday night for another #IlliniPulse!
