Prob Nick Anderson, Dee Brown is the coolest though because he actually took time out of his schedule to take pictures with my son and talk to him after a scrimmage.

None, I bleed orange and blue only.

:nod:

I was really surprised we where able to come out of there with a win. Vandy has one of the best home-court advantages in the country (they could have the best..), and coming out of their with a victory was HUGE for us. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.

Big when for the Big 10. The Illini have a very talented team with great senior leadership at the guard positions. It will be interesting to see how far that can take them.

Michigan's loss to Duke is the only loss in the entire conference so far.

The Big 10 should be a much, much stronger conference in basketball than football this year, I think.

Team - Illinois

Why? - Born and raised an Illini fan

Favorite current player - Demetri McCamey

Former - Luther Head, Lucas Johnson, Frank Williams, Brian Cook

Favorite rival player - Nobody in particular, if I had to choose probably E'twaun Moore just cause he wanted to be an Illini and he's a stud.

And yes, huge win vs. KSU last night. 5-0 baby! Now we gotta take down Tulsa tonight. I'm liking this team a lot.
