"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Thanks for the stream. I get angry when I can't see the games.
that looked like a charge
was in the circle.
In THJs ball handling
People rip the football program for scheduling FCS schools, but not basketball for scheduling D2 schools.
There is a slight difference in both the number of games between the sports and the price of a ticket.
McGary in foul trouble might be a real thing this season.
An airball on a lay up...don't see that too often...
He could have easily dunked
Some sloppy play tonight!
Lets start pulling away.
There's still a ton of game left but I have to remind myself that these are kids playing basketball. I jut hope they don't let this hype and high ranking get into their heads. I would like to see them just go out there and ball.
Is this an official regulars season game?
Yep. I see a couple official regulars in this bar.
Damn student announcers. Learn your craft quicker.
Jon Horford in the game! Good to see him back.
That was great work to get the rebound and 1.
Horford and Hardaway looking good...our freshman...not so much today...I kinda prefer seeing something from H and H though
Horford looks a ton bigger this season.
Spike has some major jock itch...
bad post defense tonight
That sure looked like a charge to me.
Santos L Halper
Something left to be desired: rebounding.
Grab the dang ball!!!!!
Different type lineup... Spike- Burke- Stauskas- Horford- Morgan. This could be a tough lineup to defend if Morgan/Horford could establish a mid-range shot.
If that is not a travel, I don't know what is.
Young guys look like they're taking a while to get up to speed on defense against a veteran team. Once they get their feet wet things should look a lot better on that end of the court.
...but man, I like what I see from Stauskas especially. He stands out to me in terms of athleticism and hustle. I'm excited to see that guy contribute, grow and develop under Belein the next 4 years.
How can a supposedly elite team struggle with a D2 school? The answer is that team is not elite.
Wait you're upset? Par the course, it's the 1st game of the year.....relax. I don't think many of us truly think this is a top 5 team we probably belong in the 10-15 range.
I'd be more understanding if it were CMU or Bowling State, but a D2 school? Pitiful. Michigan should win by 40 simply by showing up.
by struggling, you mean beating by 10 with 4 to go in the first half? I hope we struggle like that all year
THis is a D2 school. In case you are unaware of this fact, but D1 schools are much, much, better than D2 schools. Leading a D2 by ten with 4 to go is not a good thing.
...think of the #5 preseason rating as more of an expectation for the end of the year. This team will deal with growing pains, especially since they are going to get significant minutes from 5 players who have little to no experience in college (including Horford). They are talented, but even the Fab five dropped games here and there. Up 14 at the half, nothing to get too upset about.
So, is 41 points enough for you?
wow, he levitated.
glen robinson is going to be awesome
