Derrick Rose plus an Illini Football Preview Article

Sorry we haven't posted for a while. Not a lot to write about during the so called dog days of August. For those of you who have been wondering, there has not been any big news on the Derrick Rose front. However, it does appear that his decision is going to drag on past August despite earlier pronouncements by his brother Reggie, that they would decide by the end of August and/or before Derrick starts his senior year of school. Reggie also claimed recently that they haven't even narrowed the schools down to a top five yet. While I find that hard to believe, I think it is an indication that this process is going to drag on for a while, especially if Derrick plans to take five official visits.

No need to worry about it as worrying won't change the situation. Just focus on the upcoming football season and the basketball letter of intent signing day in November will be here before you know it. Speaking of football, the Chicago Tribune has been running a series previewing each of the Big Ten schools. Illinois' preview ran yesterday and you can read it here. Finally, if you really need a basketball fix, here is the Tribune's article on the Illini's 2006-2007 schedule.

Until later, GO ILLINI!
