hmm....seem to be forgetting about someone in the bracketbusters, but I can't remember who. I thought there might be another team in Illinois playing that has a 22-5 record, but I might be mistaken.

I think I'm just going to turn espn2 on tonight at 6pm for kicks and see what happens.

Mullin, are you kidding me? No wonder Chicago sports reporting is considered such a joke. Illinois State is 22-5, on national television tonight and the trib once again totally drops the ball. Jeez, you guys are pathetic!

I do not understand how you can not mention Illinois State. Although they have only a small chance of getting an at large bid at 22-5 they are still noteworthy.
