Though it's not exactly that hard to convince someone to go to Florida.
I give Billy Donovan a ton of credit. He's a phenomenal coach.

Illini good strong team

With new coach they are doing well to start off the season

I am fully supportive of Illini and Brian Barnhardt

Didnt see this posted anywhere. Appalachian State center Brian Okam shot, IMO, the worst free throw I have ever seen.

I've watched that probably 5 times now and still don't get how that's possible.

Even when I was playing at 10 years old, I never had a problem reaching the rim from the 3 point line, let alone free throw line. We have all seen players air ball free throws before, but that was by far the craziest free throw attempt I have ever seen.

There must be something I'm missing as to why so few people showed up. Doesn't Houston have a big UT alumni/fan base?

I think so. Both teams have struggled, but if you're going to hold a game in a football stadium, I'd figure you'd have a lot of guaranteed buyers before holding it there.

Okay, why was there a whistle? What was the violation? It's not like he purposely missed it (you can purposely miss it but it has to touch the rim).

Its a dead ball if someone doesnt hit rim on a free throw attempt.

Other than The U & The Dukies, Butler is my 3rd favorite team to watch.

By the way, did someone forget to tell the Big East that Memphis is a good basketball school?
