Non-Revenue Sports Mediocrity

Did any Illinois team win a Big 10 title this year? I think the only team that won a title last year was women's track, and even that was a tie for the title.

You previously stated that non-revenue sports did not matter. Only football and basketball counted for anything. What is happening to you?

For this clown who made the diversity post, Big Freakin' Deal. Illinois and Purdue are still the only Big 10 schools who have never had a non-white head coach for football or men's basketball, the two revenue sports. That is some progress under Saint Guenther!

I'm sure if we had hired a black coach and the team had stunk you'd be complaining about how we put diversity above winning. Quit whinning

I'm the "clown" that posted the info on the diversity award. Your reaction? Predictable. The lengths you go to find "information" to discredit Guenther is astonishing. I'll keep visiting here to post the truth on Guenther. Tou should get started dreaming up negative comments you can make in response.

Well, Guenther allowed Lou Tepper, he of making sure black players & white players ate meals together, to let Illinois football go down the crapper, so there, smart guy!

...but Illinois is the only Big Ten school to make the NCAA finals in men's golf with perhaps the youngest team in the field. A program on the rise due to the coach that Coach Guenther hired and facilities that Coach Guenther raised money for.
