Penn State’s new alternate grays turn out to be out lucky unis and we come away with the upset.

Referees won’t know which team is PSU without the white uniforms and will call a fair game 8)

Does anyone have a picture of the grey unis?

EDIT: Found them. Me likey.

After a nice crowd tonight at open practice the team is fired up. Shooting improves and we win by 3 Battle style.

Hmm… No re-match on the schedule. NI could be there a while.

I’m surprised she let me back in our room shortly after the first 66-65 game in 2006 when the Illini were sixth in the nation. Wow, that’s five years ago already.

The morning after that was the first time I heard them mention PSU basketball on New York radio.


#11

I actually will be able to watch the game. That is a positive vibe.


#12

If there’s one team you can count on us upsetting every year, it’s the Illini.

Good guys take it 64-61


#13

My Illini Brother won’t bet a lunch on this one, straight up. He said he feels like the BJC is a graveyard for them. ;D

As long as we can keep the orange crush away this time, we’ll be OK :-[

Check your math … we’re in 2012!

As for positive vibes, PSU pulls the upset in this one, 72-65. Billy Oliver isn’t sick anymore, so the only thing he is throwing up is 3-pointer after 3-pointer ;D

Double WOW…that’s six years. Triple WOW…a former math major can’t count. OK, that’s not a “wow” at all. :slight_smile:

I’ve been waiting to see the gray unis all year.

Travis gets a highlight dunk. 4 different guys make a 3. 18 turnovers forced. Clutch free throws down the stretch.

Good guys, 68-64
