    Classic Big 10 rivarly is renewed on Wens night at Carver Hawkeye Arena. I am sure there will be plenty of ILLINI faithful in the stands, but that wont matter. Iowa is on a missioin from God to destroy whoever is left on their schedule and to whip Purdue like a mule in the BTT. Plus, we owe IL for last season.


    Here is to another great Hawkeye and Fighting Illini basketball game.

    Just gonna throw this one out there, but I wouldn't at all be surprised if the Illini come away with a victory at Iowa. In fact, if I had to lay money on the game I would put it on the Illini.

    ^ You are seriously obsessed... Very strange.

    As for the game, I'll be there with a group of six, all in orange. Expecting a nail biter.

    My family and some friends from IL are taking a bus up from Champ/Urbana. On a Wens night, no less. That is dedication.

    Hawkit, I wouldn't be surprised to see a decent Illini following in IC on Wednesday, there usually is one! I highly doubt anything will top '05 when the Krush came but also an estimated 4,000 Illini fans. I'm also very much hoping for this again:

    There will be some Illinois orange in the stands, but not near as bad as that one year. Fans realize this is a critical game.

    we won there last year....

    Look..ever since Rice came back they are playing like junk, just like they did before he got hurt. It doesn't make sense, but his presence seems to throw off the chemistry. I do not like the way Illinois is playing right now....but by no means is Iowa a world beater. Not sure I like the matchup, Eye Poker and White might be too much down low for Egwu who is playing like garbage

    I *think* Iowa wins, but I wouldn't be too over confident. I think Illinois finishes up at 9-9 for the season.

    I think Iowa will win this one anywhere from 5-10 points.

    Despite Illinois being on an uptrend, I think Iowa causes some match up problems for them

    And now to brave I-88 and I-80. Hope the snow doesn't keep Illini fans away. Don't really mind if it scares away a few Hawks attendees. :)

    A game that matters, lets hope the Hawks don't collapse. I expect a 20 point victory, heck 20 point wins for the rest of the season. [​IMG]

    Damn. I was so ready for HawkNIT. Good game.

    I will say Iowa might fill up the roster on the all-B1G ugly team.

    NIT again.


    Groce on the hot seat if he doesn't make the tournament next year.


    3 years and only 1 appearance? AWFUL.

    Literally only a handful of positives to take away from that embarrassment. Rice seems to have his groove back. Starks played well. And the Illini fans plus Orange Krush were loud; it sounded like a neutral site game at times.

    Nice win, Hawkeyes.

    Chitown...Starks had 19 points, that's great....BUT, he gave up a lot of those points back to Iowa. 6 turnovers, 0 assists. Too much stalling at the top of the key.

    Awesome game, even though the weather ruined the crowd. IL fans need to pump the brakes. They are fine and still have a great shot of getting in the tourney.

    IL is a talented team. They can do it. Also, was not in Springfield yesterday, but I knew I should have copy written my name. : )
