That’s the spirit! Season’s not over yet! #BeatIowa
That was ugly. #Illini

Which was the uglier loss? 25 point loss to Wisconsin or 31 point loss to Michigan?
Hey people all we have to do is win the Big Ten Tournament… #Illini

Easier said than done Blake. However, I like your attitude!

As an Illini fan, I’d like to thank you Ryan for your loyalty and spirit as a member of the Orange Krush!
Illinois is only losing 2 seniors this year. The next three years look promising with all of the redshirts and freshman they have! #illini

Future looks #bright. We lose Bertrand and 3k3y. However we gain “Little Paul,” Starks, and Cosby.
So that #Illini loss was a heartbreaker eh?

You don’t say?
Settled in to watch the #Illini on DVR. Didn't take long to fast forward through a butt whoopin'.

By looking at the score, I’m kind of glad that I forgot to record it…

It’s always fun being an Illini fan!
At least the #illini loss to Ga. Tech doesn't look as bad, now!!

Haha! You’re right Josh. That loss is the least of our worries at this point.
Realizing #Illini basketball is done w/ home games is depressing, too. Safe to say, been better nights. But, there's lot to be thankful for.

Be thankful for the future. We are only losing two guys from this team.
Man they didn't waste any time with the renovations to the State Farm Center…#illini game ends…floor goes out with the crowd
— Lisa Schleef (@laschleef) March 5, 2014
No time to waste after getting beat by 31 points at home…

The Illini are and will forever be Illinois’ #1 team!
