If Illini goes 1-1 against Michigan and Minnesota consider it a win. Minnesota has always given the Illini fits at Assembly Hall.

Just heard that Robert Archibald passed away. Age 39.

One of my favorites back in the day. Sad.

Did you think I made that up?

“His death has been confirmed.” Jesus. Have you been hired to be staff reporter on here?

No I didn't think you made it up.

No need to overreact about me posting that link from the News Gazette.

Robert Archibald was a friend of mine.

There was no need for you to say “his death has been confirmed.” I confirmed it already. Again, have you been hired by this site to be staff reporter? If so, sorry I said something before you had the chance.

Didn't know you two were friends when I posted it.

Deejay, I respectfully disagree. Illini owned Gophers for years upon years.

Illini 72-19 vs Minnesota in C/U after 27-point victory last year. Illini are 4-3 in last 7 at home so it’s been a bit less dominant than before. Prior to the recent 7 games though the Illini had won 10 in a row at home and 16 in a row before a loss. That 26-1 string started in 1978. My time attending games has included very few Gopher victories in C/U.

It’s Barrack, not Barack. He built detention barracks so he should be called barrack.

It has nothing to do with your friendship or being first. . .it's standard practice to include evidence, such as a link to a news story or a tweet. In the past, there have been problems on the boards with people posting unfounded stuff.

If someone adds that evidence after someone doesn't, that is perfectly OK.

Some additional Illini vs. Michigan last times for today:

-Win at Michigan: 2009-10 (Won 51-44 at Crisler in late February in what ended up being the last win during the regular season for that team)
-Sweep Michigan in a season series: 2002-03 (Won at home in late January 67-60 before winning in Ann Arbor in early March 82-79)
-Sweep Michigan and Purdue in the same season: 1990-91 (Beat Purdue at home in early January, won at Michigan in late January, won at Purdue in early February, and beat Michigan at home in late February)

Gonna be a couple different things happening at upcoming home games for the Illini. Their game against Michigan State on February 11th will be an Orange Out game. The game against Indiana on March 1st will be a Stripe State Farm Center game.
