A Moment to Savor

76-45, Illinois. That's one for the record books. And one for the Illini Nation to enjoy while we can.

There's no question that the Hoosiers are struggling in the aftermath of the Kelvin Sampson debacle. But there's also no question that Tom is a great coach who will be able to restore Hoosier basketball to the level fans expect -- as long as they can handle him being a quality human being (those types have struggled in Bloomington).

So, Illini fans, just enjoy the fact that Bruce's boys shot over 50% for the game and held the Hoosiers under 40%. Enjoy the 3-pointers, blocked shots, points off turnovers and quality playing time for the bench.

And then get ready to cheer as the Illini look to return the favor of a road loss to the Wolverines when they get into Champaign Wednesday. A blowout like Saturday's will likely be the rare exception this Big Ten season.

Go Illini!
