Sportswriter Calls Out Coach Guenther!

Good to see the media finally throwing darts at Coach Guenther! Herb Gould of the Chicago Sun-Times blames Guenther and his asinine scheduling for part of the football program's woes:





"Illinois' failure to follow the lead of other Big Ten schools and put together a friendly nonconference slate is magnifying the problems. Indiana and Northwestern do it. Penn State and Wisconsin do it. Illinois is not in a position to play one of the most ambitious nonconference schedules in the nation. When Zook didn't have his team ready for the gun-to-your-head Missouri game, it set a tone."



Ron, YOU IDIOT! Follow the lead of your boss and admirer Chancellor Herman and resign!

Wait a second, this is exactly the same point FRG has been making for the past 6 months. Now that a Sun-Times reporter has pointed it out, will residents of Hudson, OH be able to accept it?

"Illinois Listed Sixth in ESPN/Sagarin All-Time College Basketball Rankings

ESPN has published a new book, the College Basketball Encyclopedia, which chronicles the players, coaches and teams throughout the history of the sport. As part of that book, Jeff Sagarin applied his computer ratings formula to produce an all-time rankings list for NCAA Division I teams, dating back to the 1938 season when the first NCAA Championship was held.

Illinois is at No. 6 on the ESPN/Sagarin All-Time College Basketball Rankings. Eight of the Top 15 teams, meanwhile, are from the Big Ten. In addition to the all-time list for all 330 teams, Top 40 rankings were determined by decade. Illinois checked in at No. 3 in the 1940s, No. 2 in the '50s, No. 12 in the '60s, No. 4 in the '80s, No. 29 in the '90s, and No. 6 in the 2000s."

Excellent job by the AD of building (380-162) on the winning tradition in a program that everyone does care about!

The Hudson, OH resident is wondering why the AD with a better record than the Joliet, IL lawyer should resign when the lawyer hasn't?

Illinois' top 3 decades on that list were decades the football guy wasn't the AD. Coincidence? I think not.

Idiot? I think so!

FYI- Guenther was the AD in a portion of the 80s and 6th and 29th in the country out of ~250-350 D1 programs is just horrible.

FYI- there weren't 250 DI teams in college BB competing in the '40s and '50s so those numbers are less impressive.

FYI- the program is 380-162 during Guenther's tenure, which is better than the program's overall record of 1607-849,

Guenther was NOT the AD during the 1980s. Another epic fail by the guy from Hudson, OH who spends his time watching women's basketball with the dope from Atlanta.
