I am resigned to that. Look at how many FB/BB programs have passed us up. Thomas was all talk to win the job but hasn't done jack since...

The basketball team better go deep in the tourney or it might be time to shut the whole athletic program down.

Bad Program.
Bad State.
Bad Fans.

Even the academics at U of I are worse now than 10 years ago.

Thank you Democrats!

We could have Jesus coaching and still no one would care to play football at a lower Big Ten school like Illinois. How do you recruit against teams that players actually have a chance to win a championship at?

Illini have never had great sport programs consistently. They have a great team in football/ basketball...once every 10 years. Recruits in illinois go else where.

Where've you been bud? Shocking to see you here, now of all times. :lol:

On a board with a number of particularly awful posters, you're the worst by far. You should be proud of that.

Well you are right on all counts except one. Ca 32,000 applicants applied for 6,900 spots in the freshman class. That is a 22 percent acceptance rate, the most competitive in the history of the institution.
