Boilerdowd sent me a text right after the game -- "I hate it when I'm right like this."

It is indeed hard to beat a team three times in one season and the Fighting Illini actually lived up to their name, fighting for their lives and beating the Boilers in Conseco tonight...

Not sure what there is to say except, fine, take a rest boys. The important tourney is next week.

But seriously... crap.
