Illinois currently an 8 seed and Arkansas is their current opponent. The Razorbacks will run them out of building. If not, Houston and sleazeball Sampson will embarrass them again

Good write-up but very disappointing season so far. Don’t understand how this team beat UCLA & Texas but gets blown out against crappy teams or seemingly let role players go off on incredible runs. Finishing 7th in the Big 10 was somehow discouraging even for a team that lost 90% of the previous season’s scoring. I’m honestly expecting a one & done result in the Big Dance and just 1 win in the BTT

Anybody have any hope that underwood is gone after this season?

Dude is really an awful in-game coach.
Loyola ran the same play over & over again in the second round loss and he had zero answers for it. I had my doubts about him for awhile but at this point, I don’t know how anyone has faith in him.

Illini on the 9/10 seed line. At least Underwood won’t lose to a lower seed this time around! (Unless they win they play a 15seed the next round and lose—which is a possibility)

Looks like Underwood is doing his usual crappy postseason coaching job.

Another double digit tournament loss. Unfortunately this dipshit is signed thru 2026. Here’s hoping to some scandal that gets him fired ASAP!!!

My brother seems to think he's Coach K, Bobby Knight and John Wooden rolled into one. He picked Illinois to win it all, and, no, he's not 6 years old.

I don't ever feel we won a game because of coaching. Ever.

We just had two All Americans on the team together and could not advance to teh Sweet 16 - even with a #1 seed.
Again as a #4 with an All American.

He has never made the second weekend. Ever. And he can't beat Mizzou when they're down even more than they usually are.

He benefited from a bad stretch of Wisconsin and Michigan State basketball.

I would keep the recruiters and shoot Brad into the sun. Promote Chester.

It’s like watching Matt Nagy getting embarrassed by Sean Payton

Big 10 basketball is a fucking disgrace. Way to go Purdue

At least Kansas & Missouri lost. Maybe Auburn can kick Houston to the curb too

On Thursday, Arizona became the first team to ever lose to a #15 twice.

On Saturday, Missouri matched that, and also lost by the largest margin ever to a #15. Nice work!

I need to start picking a 15 seed in my brackets.
