-- B.J. Elder will be out two more weeks. The struggling Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets can't get him back soon enough...Think Luke Schenscher and Jarrett Jack would have been better off declaring early for the NBA after last season? You're right. The classic Miles Simon Draft scenario.
-- Tom Oates of the Wisconsin State-Journal isn't buying the "Illinois as underdog" theme promoted by Bruce Weber. Michael Hunt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the Badgers' success is a function not of where they play, but how they play. Ok.

More on tonight's big game from AP voter and NPR contributor John Feinstein, as well as Bloggers Illini Wonk and Big Ten Wonk. The Illini Wonk, for his part, will live-blog the game.
-- Lute Olson and family are giving one million dollars to fight against ovarian cancer. Good for the Silver Haired Fox. (And it is what Bobbi would have wanted).
