    I've just started reading a book about this: "We Will Rise."
  2. This is why I'm not totally buying Holtmann. He wanted nothing to do with this job because of the pressure, and he almost didn't take his current job. Obviously, that's all his prerogative. So far though, he has had really good success during regular seasons, but in the post season (when the pressure is on) he hasn't had much success yet. It'll be interesting to see how this season progresses.

    Poll: Archie Miller

    When? I’m not saying he won’t, but that was a thoroughly discouraging loss. I’ve known that his system would take longer to build. I’ve known that he has wasn’t exactly left with a full cupboard. I was willing to look past some of the embarrassing losses, hoping he was building something. He is supposed to be building a team that can play anyone, anytime. Wasn’t that what he said? Year three, first road game and that is the product he puts out on the floor? That should be embarrassing to all involved. Wisconsin is a team that isn’t very good offensively but our D made them look awesome. But at least we can be assured that if it happens say 11 or 12 more times, changes will be made. I guess I’m starting to lose faith. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners mobile app

    Thanks - I was wondering if I was the only one who thought some were creating things to complain about.
  5. Didn't you guys learn anything from Crean? They're just positionless basketball players.

    (2020) PF/C - Dawson Garcia to Marquette

    I agree. I think many are not seeing this from his eyes. We have a pretty loaded front court. TJD is starting off well and most likely is here for at least another year. There's a lot of competition at his spot and going somewhere with little competition is probably far more appealing. I also agree with this: I don’t think it’s the tough/bangers league that is the issue, it’s the 2nd tier level recruiting. I just wonder if the second tier recruiting is a cause or a product of being a banger league.

    Not sure what this means at Illinois. At NC it would mean he was dumb enough to take a real class.

    Bye bye amateurism

    Yes, but you can't claim him as a dependent anymore :)
