      And Keep in mind i think DUke is very overrated.
      I'm done with this argument. Duke is the most overrated team in the nation right now, and I'm sticking to it.

      I've made my case for why we're a better team than them and no one can dispute me on the matchup. The only thing I've heard from tt and jags on the Illini is that they suck and Duke is god.

      I'm through arguing this because they can't step up and break down the matchup. Nor can they say anything about Duke besides their record. At least you could break down Michigan, JBond could break down Ohio State, and cards could break down IU. But besides yoda, tt and Jags have done nothing but talk about their record, which I could care less about. And oh yay, you beat two highly overrated teams that were once ranked, congrats. You also got spanked by an inconsistent Marquette team on a neutral floor, fully healthy.

      I don't give a rats ass about your record. You have one less loss than we do. I care about you being able to argue the other side, which you've yet to prove to me you can do. I've made a matchup post, twice, and no one has disputed it. I've brought out stats and how they lost more than we did, yet we fell 20 more spots in the rankings and they stayed top 15 and they can't dispute that.

      So until you can come in hear and argue civaly that...

      A) Duke is a top 10 team, hell that Duke is a top 15 team

      B) Illinois sucks

      C) Duke is a better team matchup wise

      D) You'd be at your record without the likes of Paulus, McRoberts, Scheyer, and Nelson for a better part of the season

      I'm not going to talk about it anymore. It's like talking to a monkey with you guys. I ask you to argue with me (not on records) on matchups, and you can't. I ask you to prove to me that the only reason Duke was ranked in the top 15 this year was because of their ranking, and you can't counter it, or you've yet to counter it.

      I've asked you how a top 6 team can only beat Holy Cross and Kent State at home barely and you can't. I ask you how you can barely beat Gonzaga, who played their worse game of the year and you played your best and you can't.

      Until you can argue the other side here I'm just going to stop on this, beause it's like talking to a wall. Oh and another thing, Florida lost twice this year "because of injuries." So how isn't Illinois having 3 times as many injuries a valid argument here, yet we're 12-2, with the same number of losses?

      Here's my other argument on why Illinois is not as good as I think are. We don't have a go to guy, we dont' score a lot of points, we have trouble with dribble penetration at times on defense, we're inexperienced, we fall in love with the 3, we forget to go down low, and we committ bad turnovers.

      Regardless though, if we play like we're capable of, we're a damn good team. You may not think it but I do, and that's all I care about. Battle 6 injuries throughout the season and then come back to me on how the hell we're 12-2.

      sweetness out....

        And I won't argue that. They're clearly better on paper than us, but keep in mind we do play them at home. 8) :D

        And sik wit it with another intelligent post on the Illini, "they suck." It's pretty much laughable right now.

            They beat them at home keep in mind. It' won be easy for Wisky, I can tell you that right now. Plus Wisky struggles at the Hall, the hardest place to play in the nation, well ok one of the hardest places to play.

            The Hall is gonna be rockin baby. We'll hold Tucker to 12 points and Taylor to 10. Unfortuantely though Butch is going to go off for 35.

                  Also you obviusly did not watch the game Michigan was in it until about 12 minutes left in the game.
                  no kidding. illinios is a joke.
                  *sweetness puts gun to head, and pulls trigger*

                  Argue this. Please, because you've yet to argue it without saying we suck. Break down our team or your opinion holds no water to me.

                  You too danman, and jags.
                  as your opinion holds no water to me" whatever the hell that means.....

                  I just want you to answear one question for me sweetness and if you can give me a viable answear i'll shut up about it. How exactly do you proclaim a team with a Worse record and no top 25 victories is better than a team with 2 top 25 victories and one loss to a top 25? Andnone of this " on paper were better" or " we have injuries" BS. Guess what? basketball isn't played on paper, and also if you have injured players they don't play either so you can't factor them into the argument either because were talking about RIGHT NOW who is better, not when your players come back . what illinios wins are supposed to support your agrument for a top 25 ranking Belmont? Jackson State? georgia southern? Idaho State? I mean what a joke dude ,you had to chances to prove your top 25 by beating maryland or arizona. You have failed to beat any team to mention yet. For some one to think anyone with this record should be top 25 is pure stupidity. Agian duke has beaten georgetown and gonzaga, who are ten times better than any opponent you have beaten. Even indiana and Airforce are better than any team illinios has beaten IMO. That makes 4 wins that are more solid than any you have... so yeah.. illinios is better as of right now alright. Why don't you just go ahead and say the Panthers are better than the Saints just because they looks better on paper while your at it. And to answear your question about paulus, yeah he is overratedbut it's not like hes terrible. the rest of the team is still solid, mccroberts is a little overrated IMO too, but he still a very very solid player. He dosen't score 25 points a game usually , but he can pass very well, and he is a monster on the boards. Also, he can throw down some points when he needs it. Anyways, i just think your whole argument is very very weak.

                                Not every coach has seen Duke play that much this year. They probably just see the record and the Duke name and think they're a great team, when really they're not.
