  • Great content. Low enthusiasm/energy

    I absolutely love Illinois athletics and will try to absorb as much content as possible no matter the source. I’ve tried listening a few times but even after big wins/news it’s hard to be excited with their lack of energy. more

  • Good Source for Illini Coverage

    Some good Illini coverage If you can put up with Jim Rossow‘s constant annoying sarcasm. Not sure why Scott Rickey doesn’t just punch his lights out.

  • Insightful and Funny; must listen for Illini Basketball

    Scott Richey is the goods - he's a great Illini basketball beat writer, in a long line of talent (Dawson, Klee, etc). Jim succeeds at adding some humor. A good albeit short show.
