Take a Bow, Bruce Weber!

You now hold the record for most wins andbest season ever for Illinois Men's Basketball: 37-2 and 2d Place in the NCAA Tournament in 2004-05. You are now going to own the record for most losses in Illinois history and arguably the worst season in the history of the program in 2007-08. So you've gone from the penthouse to the outhouse in just 4 seasons!!

How did this happen? Simple. You cannot have consecutive recruiting classes of Chester Frazier (tries hard, not Big 10 caliber player); Charles Jackson (now playing football, although I doubt he ever sees the field); Richard Semrau (so many injuries); Jamar Smith (convicted felon); and Brian Carlwell (injured in car accident caused by Jamar Smith driving drunk; transferred).

You must have a very short memory if you think this year's team is the worst ever.

Leave it to Ron Guenther!!

He hires and retains coaches that take Illinois to the Penthouse and the Outhouse!

So, Ron Turner sets a school record for victories only to set a school record for defeats.....but only does it a few years apart!!

Now, we have Bruce Weber, he sets a school record for victories in 2005 and now will set a school record for defeats in a season just 3 short years later!

Thank you Coach Guenther!! You can really pick (and keep) them!!
