Can The Hoops Program Be Fixed?

Our guy Paul Klee from the Champaign News-Gazette ponders that question. I like the point he raises about UI athletes being coddled:

"Being a student-athlete at Illinois offers a comfortable lifestyle. After a
loss at Northwestern last season, players were held out of media interviews,
supposedly as a punishment. In reality, it was a gift and another example of not holding them accountable."

Kinda like Jamar Smith....Go read the whole thing. Very good column.

On a side note, the RPI for the women's team is 137!! Jolette Law rocks! Thank you, Saint Guenther, for extending her contract!

Also, football season tickets are on sale now!!!!
