Illini Get No Respect, Ncaa Hoops

Tue Mar 09, 2004 11:36 am

The University of Illinois is on a ten game winning streak, they are sole champions of the Big Ten conference, and they are ranked 12th behind Wisconsin who is 10th. Sportscenter doesn't even do a snippet on the game that they won to get the outright title. It pretty dissapointing, but it won't be dissapointing when the Illini beat up on their earlyu opponents in the NCAA tournament.

Here at CU we get no respect either, 4th place in the Big 12 (behind Okla State, Texas and Kansas), 10-6 in the conference, 18-9 overall, no respect...we get looked over so badly...no votes in the AP poll at all the ENTIRE YEAR and our first votes in the ESPN poll with a mere 11 votes...somehow I get the vibe the tournament committee is going to give us a royal screwing and we'll be doomed to the NIT...

Illinois STOLE our very good Coach Bruce Weber. I have a BIG grip about them I hate there athletic director for STEALING our coach. Granted Coach Weber could have said no, but he was offered, actually my beef goes all the way to the first team that left when he was replaced by Illinois Self, then Weber came out, which team am I talking about, The Suthenr Illinois Salukis of course, which you will see in a topic I made.


p-s his daughter was very cute(both of them) i went to school with them and both were cute and very good people and good freinds of mine. SO because he left they left too.

Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who go AFTER it!
