Tell Us How You Really Feel, Coach Weber…

Posted by rtmsf on June 20th, 2008

Could it be that Illinois coach Bruce Weber is still a little miffed about Indiana committing grand larceny  ripping a player from his cold dead hands procuring Eric Gordon from his Muppet Show grasp last season?  We’re just wondering, maybe the guy is still a little bitter?  From Boiled Sports today (Bruce Weber speaking):

The league should be wide open and we can be right in the middle of it.  I do know one thing, though.  Indiana will suck. Don’t put that on the Internet.

Of course, he’s absolutely right.  Indiana will suck.  Achieving .500 next season would with the talent they’ll have on hand would be an achievement that would catapult the name Crean into embarrassingly hushed conversations about Wooden, Lombardi and Bryant.  But that won’t happen.  As bad as the Big Ten is, the rest of that conference will mightily enjoy its territorial pissings all over the Hoosiers.

But in a couple more years, who knows?  We’re not sure that Weber really wanted to rile up the Indiana faithful any more than he already does.  Of course, with his recruiting woes in recent years, he’ll be back in the MVC by then anyway.

  1. Just saw this after your Week 3 Set Your TIVOs post. Nice cheap shot at Weber. He just signed a top 10 class for 2009 and has two five stars in Richmond and Head for 2010. I’ll bet you everything I own Weber will be right where he is now in two years…coaching a much improved Illini team.

    Heck, he’s ALREADY coaching a much improved Illini team (11-1). Now that he’s righted the recruiting ship and bringing in top flight recruiting classes, things are looking to be on the upswing. This is Bruce Weber’s Illinois program now…and that’s a good thing.
