Why is there a countdown to selection Sunday on the home page for illinihq.com, and why does the description read like this:
"Are you looking to discuss Bruce Weber and his Fighting Illini as they look to return to the NCAA Tournament and the top of the Big Ten? If so, this is the place for you."
Are they just messing with us at this point or what?

Just a bunch of politically correct BS. This is the stuff that coaches, papers, etc.. do and say. It's one of the reasons I like boards like this because we can actually speak the truth on things and don't have to worry about being fired or criticized publicly for it.

Remember when we used to watch the Illini play in the B10 championship game, and then wait happily to analyze our seed in the Big Dance, ah those were the days.

That Bruce Weber bit has been there since October. Maybe if you paid attention before January 29th, 2012 you wouldn't complain.

As for selection Sunday, it doesn't matter if the Illini make it. It is the start of the greatest post-season tournament in the history of sports.

My point is it's been time to remove both for awhile now, and I'm sorry, the tournament doesn't really do it for me if the Illini aren't in it. Enjoy rooting for Coach K and Cal, maybe he'll finally get his first championship with his Illinois star.

Guess it would be more than Bruce Weber can do with his Illinois stars. BTW go to the game thread forum and let me know if you think that have had plenty of time to fix their headlines.
