Current Bears players who may or may not fit into a 3-4 defense

  Now that we know about the Chicago Bears officially switching to a 3-4 base defense for the 2015 season, there's one big question that needs to be answered. Can any of the defensive players currently on the roster -not counting free agents- fit into the scheme of new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio? This question will not be answered any time soon.

Malcolm Hill is the new Illini leader

  It's no secret that the Illinois Fighting Illini (15-8 overall, 5-5 Big Ten) have struggled offensively from time to time this season. There have been many times where they needed a source of offense from someone other than senior guards Rayvonte Rice and the injured Tracy Abrams. They've especially needed a spark since the aforementioned Rice and junior guard Aaron Cosby have been on an indefinite s ...

The new look DePaul Blue Demons

  If you asked me back on New Years Eve -when the DePaul Blue Demons began their conference schedule against Marquette- if I thought that the Demons would be in first place by now I would have told you "no". After all, DePaul lost their final six non-conference games after a 6-1 start. Out of those six straight losses, four of those games were against teams DePaul should have easily beaten (George Wash ...

The positives from Northwestern’s loss to Ohio State

  EVANSTON- In what was probably their best performance since beating Rutgers in their conference opener back in December, the Northwestern Wildcats (10-9 overall, 1-5 Big Ten) showed a lot of fight and promise in their somewhat controversial 69-67 loss -the teams fifth in a row- to the Ohio State Buckeyes (15-5, 4-3) at Welsh-Ryan Arena on Thursday night. Despite what may or may not have happened, the ...

Flames drop last-second heartbreaker to Detroit

      UNIVERSITY VILLAGE- Wednesday night at the UIC Pavilion, the Illinois-Chicago Flames (5-14 overall, 1-3 Horizon League) had a chance to finally make a dent in conference play. They kept the Detroit Titans (9-9, 3-1) in check for most of the game. But a couple of last minute blunders ruined the opportunity. At first it looked like the Flames it would get blown out right of the gate.... I ...

Northwestern and Illinois have a lot in common

  It's one of the biggest rivalries in Chicago sports... The Northwestern Wildcats (10-6 overall, 1-2 Big Ten) and the Illinois Fighting Illini (11-6, 1-3) will do battle on the hardwood for the first time this season on Wednesday night. In recent years this rivalry has been one-sided, usually in favor of the Illini. But this time, things are more evenly matched. Aside from their win-loss records being ...
