    EDIT: overtime :shock:
    No it won't. Talk to me if they actually win a 1st Round game this season.

    Plus Bruce Weber is on the brink of singing some stud 08 and 09 guys right now (plus he's got the #1 Illinois prospect from 10' already signed). He'd get the same guys whether or not he won this game.

    Self is still a terrible coach and you can just tell because his players were making dumb plays down the stretch, and that is a sign of no discipline and poor coaching. The only reason he wins is because he's got talent on his team that can overcome his coaching. He's a great seller and recruiter but can't coach his way out of a bag (I'm an Illini guy but I bet a lot of people would say that he's the Ron Zook of Basketball, only I think Ron can coach a lot more then Self can).

    There is no clear cut #1 team this season; so it's going to be fun to watch the battle for the top spot. I think it'll probably go to, hmmm; UNC, UCLA (weak Pac-10), or Florida again. But who knows, maybe Butler will get it.

    • I really like Marquette this year, Dominic James reminds me a lot of Chris Paul, and I think he alone could bring them to the Final Four this year...

          Yep, exactly. I think that James has a better supporting cast then Wade did though, but Wade was a little more talented so it evens out. Nevertheless, I like watching them play.

          • I haven't seen a UW game this year yet but Marquette's are usually more exciting.

              Weber is certainly the better coach than Self, but Self can recruit circles around Weber.....it also helps that he is recruiting to a traditional program like Kansas rather than Illinois.

              I think Kansas will underachieve yet again this year, but it's hard to argue with the talent Self has recruited to this team. Rush, Wright, Russell, Kaun, Chalmers, Arthur.....they have a sick team.

              • I just can't help but wonder what Bruce would be able to do with those guys.

                And put Self with our guys and we're looking at a .500 record.

                  Whitney Mercilus will be a better and more productive player than Shea McClellin

                    McBride is already back. Smith came back on Friday night and will be ready for Tuesday against Maryland on ESPN. And it's looking like a couple more weeks for Randle.

                    Tuesday we'll find out if this team is for real or not. We're 7-0 but we haven't really played a "statement" type game yet so we'll see. I think we'll win on Tuesday;

                    1) IMO we're a better team, but I'm sure Charm will disagree

                    2) We're at home

                    3) Ebekwe is kinda banged up

                    My prediction is Illinois 68 - Maryland 59.

                        I'm a member of a couple Illini College Sports message boards.

                        Check your PM's, because we aren't supposed to promote other websites on here and I'll give you some sites that are pretty good in getting info on the team and talking with other Illini fans.

                          are you kidding? Uf is sooo overrated thank god they lost, KU on the other hand just showed everyone how good they are, well atleased when they don't play oral roberts.

                          What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                          they get smoked.

                              Last year Florida was a top 20 team from November to March and then played the last two weeks flawlessly. Expect them to be a final four team (at least) again. Kansas is going to pull the same thing thewy always due. Win 23, lose 6 or 7. Then dominate the Big 12 tourney and then lose in the first round to...HOFSTRA!
