    And they're off! In the first pre-season NCAA poll, the Illini are ranked #17 and North Carolina which beat them in the NCAA tournament didn't even make the Top 25. I just hope Dee Brown stays healthy and we stay in the Top 25. Anything else this season is gravy!

    Well, pre-season ranks are bologna...but if you must: My Kentucky Wildcats are ranked 9th and the Wisconsin Badgers were 20th last week.
    The illinni are in for trouble.
    Just go for it!

    Put 1 in the win column. It won't be like last year, but it looks good! Kudos to Carter for playing with the broken nose.

    #16 Syracuse falls to unranked Florida after running over Texas Tech -- expect the Illini to move up in the poll on Monday.

    Win #2! (It wasn't pretty, but it was a win.) Michigan State got blindsided yesterday! And #13 Stanford should drop in the polls, too.

    UConn has Arkansas tonight in the Maui Invitational. No way I'm staying up for an 11:30PM tip-off.

    Haven't heard much about Wisconsin (but I don't think they made the Top 25 this week). At least Kentucky lost to a ranked team.

    Fingers crossed for Illini win #3 tomorrow. (Wish I could go!)

    UConn beats Arizona and now faces Gonzaga for the Maui title. This tournament has some big teams and has had some big games. The triple OT between Michigan State and Gonzaga was great. That Kelso-looking dude (Morrison) had 43 points. Should be a good final tonight.

    Win #3!!! (Although the Illini have yet to play a really good team.)

    Kudos to Michigan State (even if it was a loss) to come back so hard from the Hawaii upset!

    Two in a row for Kentucky? Not good.

    Arkansas edged Kansas. Sweet!

    Duke, Texas, and UConn are really kicking some ass.

    I wonder who'll go undefeated the longest this season. Unfortunately it won't be the Illini.

    Could someone tell me who the team was that beat West Va. last night on their home court as Jerry West's jersey was being retired? Also, who was this team that played some defense and made WVU shoot 40 3 pt. attempts? This certainly doesn't look like/sound like my alma mater from the past few seasons.

    Will be a long season for my DePaul Blue Demons this year in the Big East. But they are on their way to some good teams in the future. They are already making good splashes with their recruiting. When you start beating Illinois for recruits, it's very reminiscent of those teams in the 70s and 80s with Mark Aguirre, Terry Cummings, and Rod Strickland.

    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Well, it wasn't particularly pretty, but I'll take it. Augustine has really stepped up; now if Dee would just get hot, we'd really be cooking!

    Yeah, not a great start for the Badgers, but they are not giving up. They would be ranked around 28th, so they are still in it. My Wildcats are doing OK right now, ranked 10th now with some work to do.
    Illini is surprising me, what the hell did da coach do to his ankle at home?
    Just go for it!
