Bruce Weber has lost his team, they currently trail Nebraska 64-36. I am guessing that means he has also lost his job. Hopefully they don't get it turned around before UM goes into Assembly Hall.
chance of bowl: 13.6%
It has been mostly downhill for him since his '05 run with Bill Self's players. Even some good infusions of talent haven't helped that much. It's odd for a guy who came up at least partly through the minor leagues (so to speak).
I was actually thinking the same thing last week while watching Illinois play. Self really rebuilt that program and had them playing great ball. Under Weber it just seems like a steady decline.
has lost his team in true Zookian form
Its sad to see. I've always liked Bruce Weber. Always thought he was a good coach amd good guy.
He really REALLY has.
Currently a 42-2 run for Nebraska. Dear god.
Is that true?!?
If so, that must have been planned by the players, no?
That's the sort of stuff you see on the yahoo frontpage. "Texas HS team wins game 105-8"
Haha that's a great
Illinois had their biggest lead at 24-16, then Nebraska went on a 26-2 run, or 36-4, or 43-7
Still crazy, but not 42-2
Yeah, I went through the play-by-play and counted 40-7. Either way, it's still incredible. But 42-2 and Weber would have been fired during the game.
Brian Ellerbe in Cameron thinks that's a rough stretch.
is certainly crazy, but then you remember the run is being done by Nebraska's basketball team! Cripes! If that isnt losing the team....
Good. It just makes that road game even easier.
He spent way too much time around Ron Zook
Meyers Leonard is sobbing uncontrollably.
his lottery pick projections are drifting away and now he realizes he has to come back to champaign next year.
trying to declare
Football team starts hot; dies
Basketball team starts well; dies
Make fun of Ron Zook all you want. I predict Illinois will be a repeat of MN after they fired Mason. Zook won big ten title at Illinois for gods sake. At least he could recruit and gave Ohio State some trouble. LOL!
Reminds me of Illinois football season.
I guess his toughness lessons over the past few days didn't sink in.
The goddamn plane has hit the mountain.
Quite a different view from the outside...
