Illinois athletics has something positive that will be remembered and referred to by everyone for a long time. No matter how the Final Four turns out, the 15-point comeback in the last 4 minutes against Arizona to get to the Final Four has to be considered one of the best, if not the best comeback in collegiate basketball history.

I've wondered around to the Illinois blogs in the last hour and everyone had given up. Everyone except the guys on the floor.

Dude, given the way Illinois has played all year long you knew there would be a game like this. Let's just hope the next two are nearly so stressful ... otherwise my liver will be shot!!

Hey, I even shut the TV off when they got to be 15 down with about 4 minutes remaining. I should have known better after seeing what happened with Louisville.

Do you have a bet with Dodd on the game?
