Man I love Coach Beilein - so damn humble and classy.

His comments/praise of Simpson was beautiful to hear, and he gives such a well thought-out analysis of the game and his team.

First time I've seen them, they're an interesting team. They're pretty sloppy and ran out of gas at the end, but showed a lot of hustle and a ball-hawking intensity on D.

Way too many wasted offensive possessions. It's such a contrast to Michigan's typical efficiency.

That Ao dude is a fucking hack job - what a dirt ball.  I can't believe how bad Illinois plays basketball, just junk yard garbage.  They need a new coach and less thug-like players.  Not sure they will win any more B1G games this season.  Not impressed.

Great interview of Coach B by Bill Raftery just a moment ago.  I think Beilein is enjoying himself as much or more than ever this season, ever since recovering from his off-season health issues that took basketball away from him for a short spell.

That Dosunmu gent had a near death experience at the end there, he didn't seem to realize it though. Reminded me of the Dark Night Rises when the little snively guy is yelling at Bane and he puts his hand on his shoulder and says, "Do you feel in charge"?

You know things aren’t bad when you cover on the road and people complain about an outcome. I believe the NW game, only game by single digits? If so, incredible.

Probs to Teske, Z, and Livers. They played well while Poole, Matthews, and Iggy just sort of were ok at best. 

Z is so good for a dude that can’t really shoot.

This team really plays up/down to opponents. Poole with one of the worst games he’s played in awhile. That said, another comfortable win. This team is just so well rounded.
