Man, that was awesome! I can’t stop watching highlights and I get goosebumps watching the players and fans go crazy!
The reason I love illiniboard is that Robert is me. Man, I can relate to growing up and never having to wonder IL was making the tournament. It was a given.
I have a 13 year old that has never really seen what Illini basketball is all about and I can’t get him fired up to watch the games. I was talking this morning about how this is more like it and how it used to be. He is a huge Ayo fan, loves to follow his stats, but I still can’t get him to sit and watch a game. Maybe this is the beginning, I don’t care what happens Saturday, we need to win but, we are starting to see the climb back.
What a feeling for the fans, the coaches, but my gosh, the players. Those guys have been through it, this has to be special for them.
Awesome, just awesome!
