As I just said to my roommate, who is going to be on fire for Illinois? Seems like someone always comes out stroking it from 3 for every team we play.

They compared this year's Illinois team to last year's Michgan team. Either they blow out teams or get blown out. Never know what you are going to get. Illinois is dangerous at home. If we beat them, then I think they officially are a second tier team of the big10.

BTN to go service is -to put it elegantly - a piece of shit.  

When the games (football OR basketball) are on a major network you have to wait until 12:00 ET to watch them.  Which would be ok if the games were actually available, not the case most of the time.

When the games are only on BTN you can watch them live, but the stream is crappy and it often skips.  I can't ever get it to work on my iPad for live broadcasts. 

The BTN reminds me of that commercial for in which a guy worked with a bunch of monkeys.

For some reason, I get a few pop-ups that I can't "x" out of.

I've tried roving around the borders, clicking in random spaces, highlighting the area, and a few other tricks. I still can't seem to find out how to get the pop-ups off the screen. Any tips 

(And yes, I updated my pop-up blocker with Norton recently)

OT: Anyone see Henry Poggis dads Twitter today? Uhhh

BiffPoggi: Until the #Big 10 learns to recruit like the #SEC it will be an irrelevant conference. Good news for #Ohio State

BiffPoggi: Recruiting is a process that takes constant work. The lifeblood of any team. Players win games. #SEC . The reason they as a conference win
