The flagship podcast from Robert Rosenthal at http://IlliniBoard.com. Illini interviews and analysis from one of the seventeen.
Illini Basketball 1993~1997 with Will Leitch
Part III of this series covers 1993 (NCAA Tournament win over Long Beach State followed by the R32 loss to Vandy) through 1997 (NCAA Tournament win over USC followed by the R32 loss to Chattanooga). My guest: Daily Illini writer/editor at the time (and he's done a *few* more things since then), Will Leitch.
Illini Basketball 1988~1992 With Tyler Cottingham
Part II of my summer series reviewing the last 40 years of Illini basketball. Because it includes 1989, this one goes long. 2.5 hours long.
Illini Basketball 1983~1987 with Loren Tate
Episode 1 of my summer series going through the last 40 years of Illini Basketball. Loren Tate is my guest as we cover the 1982-83 season through the 1986-87 season. From the arrival of Douglas and Winters to the NCAA Tournament loss to Austin Peay (and everything in between).
I talk to Marc Davidson about his two seasons at Illinois, his professional career playing in France, his years as a high school coach, and his current cancer battle. His honesty, openness, and faith are quite inspiring.
Tyler & Robert - Houston Loss Therapy Session
We have to stop doing these. Last year, after the Loyola loss, Tyler and I recorded what we called a "therapy session." And now, one year later, here we are recording another one.
From The Hotel Room (at 1:18 am)
This is basically one long From The Stands from my hotel room at 1:18 am after trying to write (and failing) for nine hours. No other way to say it: Loyola + Houston has me completely devastated.
Essential listening, especially for the non-casual Illini fan
Can't get enough content? Care about Illinois sports more than the people around you and that went to school with you? This is your podcast. Robert is as rabid as they get, in the best possible way. In the bad times, he'll help you understand why it's not as bad as you think. In the good times, he'll help you understand how historically significant the moment is.
I always enjoy rewatching the game while syncing the podcast to the tv. Raw emotion love it because I’m experiencing the same things in my house.
Robert is the best!
Robert’s love and passion for Illini sports always amazes me and every time I see one of his podcasts pop up in my feed it makes my day!
