First column I have read that backs what I have been saying - sorry, some of you might not care, but I have to put up with a lot of Illini idiots out here.

I would love it if they missed the tourney this year. All they can say is we were in the NC game and you guys lose first round.

I read the article as well as the posts after it.

These people have serious Indiana-envy.

I found their naming of the "dynasties" of Indiana, North Carolina, Duke revealing. None of them mentioned Kansas. That makes me wonder why they think Self left...

None of them had the guts to talk about what an easy target for ridicule Weber is. Personally, I think it's kind of sad that a guy who is apparently a good coach comes across as such a clown.

the comments are interesting. they think just because they were in the NC game that they should get every big name recruit....just because they are the Illini.

Hello wake the f-up people.

And the Illini are well on their way back to mediocrity.

I don't know. I would trade several of our local whiners for one Illini straight up.

It does make one long for the days of DraintheGrate or FightinIllini, doesn't it?

All they need to do is let Zook recruit for Weber and all would be well in Illness land. ASSembly Hall will not be seeing the same crowds in the near future that they have seen in the recent past. Potsie Weber will be gone soon after that if not sooner. Too bad he is not material to go to a school that can recruit based on the schools name.

I love how Illinois fans think they have a freaking leg to stand on complaining about Webber. Yeah, he ain't as pretty as Self, but the guy is not even remotely as bad as Chief Illiniwiekians think he is. Illinois has no basis for acting like they have any sort of reputation or history that merits them thinking they are entitled to anything but a mid-major coach that is going to use the program as a stepping stone.

Cant blame them. Self and his players set the bar too high for the Crush. Now being above average isnt good enough.
