OFFICIAL Big Ten Tourney thread, aka Illini's last stand
« on: March 12, 2008, 07:27:36 PM »
All right guys, I think we can win 2. I'm off tomorrow and Friday, anyone wants to catch the game on the big screen/BTN is welcome, bring beer.

I havean odd feeling Wisconsin wins this, gets a two seed somehow in the NCAA's, and goes home after one win. I think we are the sleeper team, without question.

I have been asking my Illini for years and YEARS to surprise me in a tourney, and be an overachiever. Let's do it now!

We are in the easier side of the bracket, IMO
If we win 2 games, like you said, then we play IU again. We can beat them.
I ain't askin for nuthin, if I can't get it on my own. If ya don't like the way I'm livin', ya just leave this long haired country boy alone.

ESPN2 at 2:30 Eastern (I think the time is correct, not 100% sure)

Let's just win this thing so we can send Gordumb a defeat and maybe go on to a MIRCLE upset in the second round of the Dance over Memphis and Ro$e.

Wow, the flu has really got me delusional.  :confuzed:

LOL, if we win this, and get Memphis, meaning an 8-9 seed in the tourney, I will send you a crisp new $100 Bill. Maybe after we beat Memphis, the #1 seed, we get KU at the #2 to make the FF against tennessee and UNC!!!!
