Welcome to March.
We had our tweet ready to go.
Welcome to the first March worth a damn for Illini Nation in a pretty long time.— The Champaign Room (@Champaign_Room) March 1, 2021
Feel good to be back.
But we were outdone by the official Illinois team account, who shared a picture of Illinois’ current Big Three recreating one of the most famous shots from the runners-up team from 16 years ago.
It’s Ayo, Kofi and Trent. If you’r not familiar (you probably are), the original pic had Dee Brown, Deron Williams and Luther Head.
Ummm, so this team is certainly ready. Two big challenges this week with Michigan and Ohio State.
Hey, Illinois is playing meaningful games in March!
And as our favorite reporter Jon Rothstein says...
