Prince James

You know i have to laugh at the people who defend James in not only his decision but how it was handled. First, imagine the love of your life going on national TV and breaking up with you saying the old it's not you it's me. That in reality is what he did because he did not have the decency to inform the Cavs prior to that smarmy special. For that, he's a coward and a turd.

2nd, he punked out and took the easy way out. But that's his true character. "Now i don't have to score 30 points a night or shoot a high %"
Can you ever see the all time greats of the NBA saying that? Can you see Jordan, Kobe, Magic, Bird etc.....saying that? NEVER!

In the end James is a guy who is just not an Alpha Male. He is Pippen, Worthy, Mchale, Gasol, etc.......He's not a lead dog....does not have the heart for it...that's obvious. If your not the lead dog, the view never changes.

3rd, His brand is destroyed. If you can't understand why, your an idiot and i can't help you there.

So if your a James fan or a Heat fan and your excited, that's great, I'm sure the new big 3 will win titles. But don't act like he is not a punk and a coward....cause he is. Don't let your fandom cloud whatever brain cells you have.

Waste of talent

So bad were the Illini yesterday! Let's go over some of the reasons this team is a waste of talent! 

Not lining someone up over the center on 3rd and inches
Letting 7 seconds run off the clock before calling a timeout at the end of the 1st half
Not making def adjustments to the TE curl, seriously If i see that again on 3rd and 5 or 6
completed for 9 yards again I think I will kill myself
Calling a timeout on 4th and 1 late in the game....WTF WAS THAT?
Stop running the aint working and looks like a 7th grade team running it
Lackadaisical....I mean it looks like they are in a fog out there.....did you see on 1 of the Illini short punts when 3 guys let the ball roll back 3 or 4 yards before they finally picked the damn thing up?! Pick up the damn ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HTF can you not lineup on the line of scrimmage as a Tackle.....what are you in Jr Tackle? WTF!

I don't like this team. I don't like teams who piss away their God given talent because they seem to think they can just show up and since they have superior talent they will just automatically win. They are painful to watch!  COACHING! a lot of that is COACHING! Where is the punishment for playing poor sloppy uninspired football? Guys need to start riding the bench to send a message that this should and will not be tolerated. A loss to that team yesterday should be embarrassing to everyone associated with the Illini program. This team is one of the biggest underachievers I have seen in recent memory!     

My 2nd favorite team is  NIU and it was such a pleasure to watch a team yesterday who plays the game the way it should be played. No dumba$$ mistakes, no bonehead coaching, a def who actually flows to the football......they do not have the Illini's talent but they sure play the game the right bad I can't say the same for the waste of talent Illini!

Must win

OK Illini fans, this week's game VS the awful, and I do mean awful Wisconsin Badgers is a must win if we want Illinois to go to a decent bowl. A win this week would not only put Illinois at 5-3 but, put them in a position to finish 8-4 or 7-5 and maybe receive an Outback Bowl or possibly an Alamo bowl bid. However, a loss to Bucky this week (who is an awful awful team, see last week's embarassing loss to Iowa) could put Illinois in danger of finishing 6-6 and being either left out all together or going to the Motor City Bowl which after the Rose Bowl last year would be a huge drop off! After losing to a team with half it's talent at home 2 weeks ago (Minnesota) this is a BIG GAME, need to pull out a road win!

Open letter to the 5th district Indiana

This is an open letter to all the registered voters in the 5th district in Indiana. Please Please Please do not continue to vote for Dan Burton. After reading the bio of this guy it is unreal that he continues to get elected. Yesterday should have been an example of what a giant &%^%$$#$$%^&**#@!  This guy is! It is my hope that you will do the only sane thing and say no to Dan Burton the next time he is up for election. Thank you for your time!

Super Game

Although I freely admit I am a die hard Bears fan and always will be, I must congradulate the Giants on a great effort and Super Bowl win on Sunday. I thought the front 4 destroyed the Pats O-line and smacked Tom Brady in the mouth several times. Eli showed a lot of moxy during the final game winning drive. Hope the Bears front office watched the game and noticed how ordinary Tom Brady looked when spending much of the game on his rear end. That's code for HEY ANGELO FIX THE OFF LINE ITS HORRIBLE! I hope the Bears are back in the big game next year and they win it this time.

Tillman is not a smart man

<table width="800" class="mcct_container"> <tbody> <tr class="mcct_header"> <td> </td> </tr> <tr class="mcct_body" valign="top"> <td>

For all those people who cried and cried about Illinois going to the Rose Bowl check out the bowl TV ratings:

Television Households
1. National Championship Game (Ohio State/LSU) - 16,291,263 (FOX)
2. Rose Bowl (Illinois/USC) - 12,531,880 (ABC)
3. Capital One (Michigan/Florida) - 10,301,679 (ABC)
4. Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (West Virginia/Oklahoma) - 8,736,935 (FOX)
5. FedEx Orange Bowl (Kansas/Virginia Tech) - 8,345,715 (FOX)


That's right, Big 10 teams own the top 3 spots! The Mich/Fla game even did better than 3 of the 5 BCS games. Tillman i hope you read this since you were one of the most outspoken critics of Illinois going to the Rose instead of Georgia. Funny i don't see your ratings juggernart Georgia Bulldogs in the top 5.....hmmmmm. Maybe now you see the power of the Big 10 and the huge fan interest it's teams have. Bowls are about putting fannies in the seats and people in front of their TV's......always has been and always will be!
