Nodenyin' Illini

Last night's "Bloodbath at the Breslin" was truly a sight to behold. This was the one, the one where the Illini would finally fall from their lofty undefeated perch. The one where this team would true itself to the century of its predecessor teams and find a way to lose the big one.

Didn't happen.

Direct quotes from two Izzone residents will attest to the shocking and stunning nature of the beating laid on the Spartans last night. "I'm shocked," said one. "Yeah, shocked. And stunned," said another.

As a matter of fact, the whipping that was laid on Tom Izzo's bunch makes it clearer than ever that a 16-0 Big Ten season is not only possible, it's probable. Right now I put it at about 75/25 that these Illini will be the first undefeated Big Ten squad since 1976.

And don't look now, but the chances are increasing for this team to do the impossible.
