Every week, our Twitter account (@Champaign_Room) posts a tweet asking for your opinion on something. With the first stretch of Big Ten play done for Illinois basketball, we wanted to see what you’re still concerned about after a 6-3 start. Here are some of the best responses in this week’s #IlliniPulse!
THAT GARBAGE CAN!
The health of the trash can Underwood didnt like at halftime yesterday....— Steve (@SteveDale25) December 4, 2017
A lack of size.
Size. We play hard, our guys can shoot. But Finke/Black/Kipper are just not big enough to battle down low against guys 6"10 or bigger. There is more than just Bruno Fernando (Maryland Big) in the Big Ten.— Michael Berns (@MichaelBerms) December 4, 2017
Inconsistent and, at time non-existent, big play.— Jeff (@jjhparker) December 4, 2017
Size.— Dan Petersen (@uofi1998) December 5, 2017
Everything else is a product of our lack of height.
End of game issues.
Dumb mistakes— Jason Patt (@Bulls_Jay) December 4, 2017
Shooting themselves in the foot. Ex. That inbounds play in the waning minutes of the game last night.— Joe Hall (@J_hall35) December 4, 2017
Poor shot decisions in the interest of maintaining pace— Ryan 〽️cGuire (@somber_bluebird) December 4, 2017
Self-inflicted wounds and inability to close out winnable games— Quinton Strong (@el_duderino813) December 4, 2017
The offense at moments.
Inability to attack the zone— George Couston (@Cous_21) December 5, 2017
Besides Aaron Jordan, outside shooting.— Alexander J. Orr (@theorryouknow) December 4, 2017
Patience of fans...
Patience and mental health of #Illini fans.— IlliniForLife (@IlliniAlum) December 5, 2017
And BU’s health!
Brad Underwood’s heart health and blood pressure!— Jason Lewis (@jslewis22) December 4, 2017
Or maybe we just shouldn’t be concerned right now.
Nothing. Young team that’s learning and will continue to get better. At least I can watch this type of basketball— Ryan Martin (@evnpr1) December 5, 2017
Thanks for responding this week! We’ll be back next week with another #IlliniPulse!
