"The knock on Illinois:  unreasonable expectations by the fans...they are nuts"

Can't argue with that.  National pundits have us pegged as 13th or 14th(last)  in the B1G.  Even our own beat writer (Scott Richey) picked us to finish 13th. 

Yet some fans think we will finish near the middle of the pack in the conference and have us going to the Dance.  Unreal.

Vision without action is a daydream.  Action without vision is a nightmare.

im not exactly sure who everyone is, but it looks like Giorgi can give us some minutes this year at the 4/5 spot.  Ayo looks good.  Is #10 Feliz?

Feliz is #10.  From reports, Giorgi will probably start.

That's one of the options I have heard. with a second group of Feliz, Williams, Griffin, Jones and Kane, until Higgs and De La Rosa are ready. We have more depth this year if no one gets injured
Still crazy

Same amount of depth, and most likely the same amount of quality depth considering its all xfers and freshman.  Personally, Im expecting a big step up from Williams.

as long as Brad Underwood does what he's best at, we are golden.
