Illinois Fighting IlliniOverall record: 23-10Big Ten record: 9-7 (regular season; 1-0 in BTT)RPI: 34Sagarin: 44Series record: IU leads, 81-76Let's get this out of the way: Illinois is in the NCAA...

Illinois 58, Indiana 54 (OT)

The numbers say that IU was the most efficient offense in the Big Ten this year. Unfortunately, that number seems highly reliant on the three point shot. Against Illinois, in all three matchups...

Hep's finest moment at IU.

I'm going to try to avoid the flowery prose today. For every writer who does it well, there are 20 who come across as schmaltzy and insincere. I'm no professional. I think the best tribute that I...

Hawkeye State Big Ten previews.

The Hawkeye State, a nicely done Iowa blog, asked various Big Ten bloggers to submit previews of the teams they cover. He had hoped to post them alphabetically, but my foot-dragging interfered with...

IU 41, Akron 24.

As with last week's game, this one was a bit frustrating because IU squandered an opportunity to put the game away early. Nevertheless, IU is 3-0, which hasn't happened all that often in our...

Recent history with Illinois: an exercise in futility.

Thanks to Northwestern's occasional brushes with respectability, IU and Illinois have quite often found themselves in a battle for 10th place recently. In the last decade, IU and Illinois have had...


IU's eleventh hour recruitment of Kellen Lewis is well-documented, but I had not thought about the Zook angle: Zook was the coach at Florida then, and recruited Lewis as an "athlete." Not much...
