Robert, all real Illini fans understand. Trolls do not. In regards to the comment above, I am not trying to be a troll here, but Bruce Weber is completely responsible for turning our basketball thriving basketball program into garbage for over a decade. Not just the poor recruiting, but throwing players under the bus, blaming others, and just a terrible X’s and O’s Coach. Lost games that should be won and made the school undesirable for future recruits. That is how you destroy a program. One magical year with a ready made team, then off a cliff with no bottom in sight. Zook was a bit clueless, but he could recruit, was likable, and could have possibly maintained mediocrity. A change could have been good if there was a great replacement (there were options), but executed terribly.
