A Fresh Start?

The Illini men's basketball season is underway, with the final exhibition game coming up on Sunday. The news swirling around Bruce's team in the off-season wasn't all that encouraging, but the Illini have a new season in front of them. The team is still forming their identity, but since practice has started it seems the 2008-09 team has some potential. No really big stars (yet), but that may promote teamwork.

Mark Tupper says he needs to see a lot more of the Illini to get a better idea of what this season may bring. I haven't seen this year's team yet, but Bruce tends to coach teams to overachieve their potential. While I think the middle of the Big Ten is probably realistic, it will be interesting to see what the season brings...
