Default 2007-2008 Fighting Illini Basketball Thread



Will be a transitional year, with lots of young kids and question marks as to where scoring will come from. Seniors Pruitt and Randle will need to find ways to stay on the floor.

Hoping for a NCAA berth and maybe an upset first round win, but that's about it. Multiple consecutive mediocre recruiting classes will take their toll in earnest this year is my guess. That said, one thing Weber can do is coach a game, so I'm pseudo optomistic that things will not be as bad as they could be.

I'm anxious to see what kind of role Chester Frazier is going to have. I haven't thought much of him as a ball handler since they brought him on, and I'd really like to see Meachem step up.

I've been underwhelmed with Weber to be honest. The offense just looked real, real bad at times last year.

I wasn't high on Frazier last year, but he looked real good to me last night. They need him on the court, in my opinion -- the offense didn't look nearly as crisp without him last night.

Trent is simply too slow.

...and good news, only 79 days until February 7...

I guess MJ will be too classy to scream filthy things, but I know I'm not.

I hadn't noticed that yet, I'll watch for it. I think they were counting so strongly on Eric Gordon that the point guard position is their weakest area. To whoever said Chester looked good: I'm glad; I still haven't caught a game.
