The more they stay the same.

Way not to break 40 Illinois.

Big 10 basketball. Boring as [censored] even in a good year.

Gutter will argue that they play much better defense than the Big 12. I, however, am not a fraudouche (get it?) and agree with you.

Big Ten Basketball: Curing Insomnia Since 1994.

I will begrudgingly give Squeaky some credit for the job he's done with U of I this season thus far - but there is still time for a meltdown.

Hey, come on now.

Big Ten basketball is every bit as exciting as Big Ten football.

Speaking of, did the combined score of the Iowa/MSU game break 100?

Indeed, congratulations Illinois on your 13 made baskets.

That's an average of one every three minutes. Well played my friend.

I would rag on the Big Ten except for the fact that I grew up in Minnesota as a U of M fan and then went to Michigan State my freshman year...

I guess I need to mention again that this century the Big 10 has gotten as many teams to the National Championship game as any other conference. Right? Something must work with the way their teams play Basketball.

I agree 100% that the Big 10 is boring. I agree 100% that Illinois laid an egg last night. I agree 100% that Illinois is/was overrated.

I disagree 100% that Weber is a lousy coach. I disagree 100% that the Big 10 HAS BEEN a lousy conference - while I can admit it is a lousy conference this year. I disagree 100% that people on these boards know what the [censored] they are talking about when they talk Big 10 Basketball.

How many of you watched last nights game? That's what I thought.

I crack up that many of the geniuses on here who rip on Roy Williams because his teams don't play defense are the same people who call the Big 10 boring and find fault in the conference because their games are defensive. Nice work kids!

I'm assuming from this thread that Illinois won easily, right?

Most of the Big 10 teams are pretty lame to watch. However, we did get our butts handed to us by Mich State, a member of said conference.

Sad if you are an Illini fan. In their defense two of those starters only took 2 shots and one only played 14 minutes. Aldrich was "sad" in the first half against Nebraska. Right?

Please don't get me wrong. I fully understand that Illinois sucked red, white, and blue basketballs last night. No defending that.
