Newest Leastest Loved

Little doubt about who is the latest Hoosier to join the pantheon of Illini Guy's least-loved opponents.

In addition to having a name straight from central casting for Pride & Prejudice, Marco Killingsworth put 23 and 12 on the Illini -- just enough to allow the candy-stripers to eke out a 62-60 win in Bloomington.

He did so while proving to be a maximum dickhead throughout -- all the way to joining in the odd court-rushing celebration after the game.

"They're a top-10 team winning at home," (James) Augustine said. "Our fans don't storm the court after every win. I mean, it's funny."

It's also a trend. Ten days earlier, Iowa fans reacted exactly the same way after the Hawkeyes beat Illinois. (via the Peoria Journal-Star)

Hey! Crimsony Cream fans. January 17th. 2-point win in a game you were favored to win by 2-1/2.

Calm down.
